North Devon Autumn Splendour (based in Ilfracombe)

North Devon Autumn Splendour (based in Ilfracombe)

Based at the OSBORNE HOTEL




5 DAYS FROM £305


The North Devon coast is noted for its high cliffs, golden sandy beaches, rugged moors and verdant valleys. Exmoor’s heather clad moorlands, sparkling rivers and moorlands are dotted with medieval towns and villages along with an abundance of wildlife including wild ponies and majestic red deer. Nestling between Exmoor National Park to the east and the golden surfing beaches to the west, the coastal town of Ilfracombe is the ‘jewel’ of the North Devon coast with its white washed houses, grand Victorian villas and terraces.


For 2020 our base in Ilfracombe is once again the very comfortable family run OSBORNE HOTEL which is situated close to the High Street and Tunnel Beaches. Features of the Osborne include a traditional restaurant, bar, lounge and ballroom with entertainment each evening. All of the simply furnished en suite bedrooms have tv, and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.


Departing Newark early morning, we travel via Warwickshire and the scenic Cotswolds to join the motorway which takes us southwards into Devon. We then travel along the coast so to our base at Ilfracombe.

Tuesday 27th – Thursday 29th October
Scheduled excursions during our stay will include the following:
• After a free morning at leisure in Ilfracombe, we make the short journey to the medieval Chambercombe Manor for a guided tour. Dating back to the 11th century, the manor is mentioned in the Domesday Book and is reputedly one of the most haunted buildings in the country! Following our tour we will be served an afternoon Devonshire cream tea
• Full day tour calling at Dartington Crystal - a unique and fascinating experience for all. Discover the story and development in the exhibition centre and watch skilled glass makers in action on the factory floor. There is also great factory shopping and a relaxing cafe and restaurant. We return via the pretty historic fishing village of Appledore which is characterised by winding narrow streets and colourful houses
• Full day scenic tour along the coast via Combe Martin (which has the longest village High Street in the UK.) to the pretty resort of Lynmouth, particularly known for its’ Victorian water-powered funicular cliff lift. This unique attraction will transport you up 862 feet to the village of Lynton which is perched high above from where you can experience wonderful views of the Bristol Channel and Exmoor.
