East Devon & The Dorset Coast

East Devon & The Dorset Coast





6 DAYS FROM £522


The 95 miles of coastline stretching from Exmouth in East Devon to Old Harry Rocks in Studland Bay in Dorset is world renowned as the Jurassic Coast, England’s first natural UNESCO World Heritage Site. Nestling between red sandstone cliffs, the small and unspoilt resort of Sidmouth, retains its early Victorian style and charm and offers quality shops alongside beautifully kept lawns and gardens with a sweeping level esplanade.


Perhaps the most popular and highly praised hotel we utilise, our base in Sidmouth is once again the superb AA3* rated ROYAL YORK & FAULKNER which commands an unrivalled position on the resort esplanade overlooking Lyme Bay. Decorated to a very high standard throughout, the hotel features comfortable lounges, two bars and an attractive dining room where lunchtime snacks are available. The superb leisure facilities include a hydro pool, sauna/ solarium and billiard table. Naturally all the en suite bedrooms feature tv, radio, telephone and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.

Time permitting we return via a visit to the coast and the charming little resort of West Bay (the fictional Broadchurch in the tv series).

Our coach will transfer us to Exmouth for a cruise along the River Exe to the quaint estuary port of Topsham with its cosmopolitan atmosphere and eclectic cluster of specialist shops and cafés.
