Babbacombe Bay

Babbacombe Bay

Based at The DE LA MER HOTEL




8 DAYS FROM £499


Perched above distinctive red sandstone cliffs, Babbacombe enjoys stunning coastal vistas across the wider Lyme Bay and offers traditional ‘olde worlde’ charm, a tranquil escape from the neighbouring resort of Torquay. There is a model village and a Cliff Lift, one of only a few original working funicular lifts which transports visitors up and down the 240 foot cliff face to the beach.


Very popular with our clients in 2016, our base in Babbacombe is once again the very comfortable DE LA MER HOTEL which is situated in a level position minutes from the nearest beach and shops. Family run for over 30 years, the De La Mer features a lounge and bar along with a restaurant which prides itself in serving local quality fare and there is evening entertainment during our stay. All of the comfortable en suite bedrooms feature tv, hairdryer and hospitality tray. Please note – there is no passenger lift; some ground floor rooms are available but these are limited and on a request basis only.

Departing Newark early morning we travel southwards skirting the scenic Cotswolds to join the motorway system which takes us into Devon, so to the coast at Babbacombe

Sunday12th – Friday 17th August
Scheduled excursions during our stay will include the following:
• Full day visit to Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City. Located by a stunning waterfront and harbour, this is one of Europe’s most vibrant coastal cities. The Barbican and Sutton Harbour is one of Plymouth’s most popular places to visit, with quaint cobbled streets, a picturesque harbour and a wealth of independent shops, galleries, bars, cafes and restaurants along the water’s edge creating a metropolitan feel.
• Full day tour incorporating a ride aboard the Paignton Dartmouth Railway ‘Boat Train’. Boarding the steam train in Paignton we travel to Kingswear with glorious coastal and river views and catch the foot ferry across to the beautiful naval town of Dartmouth. After a circular harbour cruise around the estuary we return by train to Paignton where we meet our coach.
• Full day tour calling at the historic town of Topsham. Once a thriving port, Topsham still retains a strong maritime flavour and has a cosmopolitan atmosphere with an eclectic cluster of specialist shops, galleries, antiques and tea shops.
• Full day tour calling at the busy market town of Kingsbridge which sits in its own estuary in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We return via a visit to the beautiful Buckfast Abbey which nestles in a tranquil haven on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park.
• Two ‘free days’. You may wish to take the local bus (which stops outside the hotel) into Babbacombe (Model Village) or into the nearby cosmopolitan resort of Torquay.

Saturday 18th August
Departing Babbacombe after breakfast, we retrace our steps, so home to Newark for approximately teatime.
