Babbacombe Turkey & Tinsel

Babbacombe Turkey & Tinsel





5 Days from £367


Perched above distinctive red sandstone cliffs, Babbacombe enjoys stunning coastal vistas across the wider Lyme Bay and offers a 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.


Highly praised on recent stays, 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.


Our Turkey & Tinsel tour will include entertainment each evening at the hotel, a festive ride aboard the South Devon Steam Railway, a visit to the pantomime at Torquay and Exeter Christmas Fair.
