Itinerary

Day 1: Today we travel down to our hotel in Babbacombe, Torquay where a warm family welcome awaits. The nearby shops and attractions, beach and museums are only a short walk away. 2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the voyage of the Pilgrims and their journey aboard the Mayflower to the New World.

Day 2: We start the tour with a trip to Sir Francis Drake’s former home – Buckland Abbey - part museum, part house, crammed with a variety of historic artefacts surrounded by meadows and woodlands from where you can enjoy magnificent views of the Tavy Valley. We spend the afternoon at leisure exploring the picturesque resort of Polperro, a quaint fishing village with lots of Old Cornish charm.

Day 3: We head to Plymouth this morning, from where we enjoy a 1 hour boat cruise before visiting The Mayflower Museum, which celebrates the story of Plymouth’s role in the Pilgrims epic journey. Featuring a scale model of the Mayflower ship, it will be at the centre of international celebrations of this anniversary. In the afternoon, we enjoy a guided tour of the historic Plymouth Gin Distillery, rumoured to be where the Pilgrim Fathers spent their last night, and enjoy a G&T at the bar – or take a complimentary miniature home with us.

Day 4: Today, we enjoy a return journey on the South Devon Railway from Buckfastleigh to Totnes, along a seven mile stretch of line that runs along the stunning valley of the River Dart, and is the longest established steam railway in the south west. In the afternoon, sit back and relax while we take you on a scenic drive across the spectacularly wild and wonderful Dartmoor.

Day 5: Return to Waterside.
