Day 3

Pass Lyme Regis, a scenic little resort on the Jurassic Coast, then see West Bay where the popular ‘Broadchurch’ was filmed. Time in Seaton as well with an optional ride to Colyton and back on the Tramway. Using the track-bed of a former branch line, the 2’9’’ gauge tramway opened in 1970 with a selection of saloons and open-toppers. There is a lot of wildlife to be seen in the Axe Valley and Colyton station is a real gem.

Day 4

The River Exe divides East from South Devon and we cross the river on today’s excursion. After Starcross, which is famous for its connection with Brunel’s ‘Atmospheric Railway’, our road and the railway hug the coast through Dawlish and Teignmouth. We continue to Newton Abbot before visiting Torquay and Paignton.

Day 5

The journey home. Arrive back early evening.

On Lyme Bay and the East Devon Heritage Coast with its imposing red cliffs, here is a refined Edwardian resort with plenty of narrow streets and alleys to explore. The busy promenade is always a magnet for the town’s many visitors. The nearby coastal towns such as Seaton, where we have the option of a ride on the tram, and Lyme Regis are attractive too: the great city of Exeter has many places of interest and resorts south of the Exe are visited on an excursion to Torbay.



An exceptionally comfortable and elegant hotel, nearly 200 years old, enjoying an unrivalled position in the centre of the Esplanade. Officially 3 star but nearer 4 star standard, the rooms – many with sea views have TV, radio, telephone, hairdryer, tea/coffee making. There are spacious lounges, bars and restaurant. 2 Lifts. A spa with hydrotherapy, sauna etc. and a snooker room are available.
