Sidmouth; A Taste of Christmas

Sidmouth; A Taste of Christmas





5 DAYS FROM £348


Nestling between red sandstone cliffs, the small and unspoilt resort of Sidmouth, lies in a curving south facing bay and is an ideal base from which to explore along the neighbouring Dorset coastline. Retaining its early Victorian style and charm, Sidmouth offers quality shops alongside beautifully kept lawns and gardens with a sweeping level esplanade.


Our festive stay at the Royal York & Faulkner Hotel will include mulled wine and mince pies on arrival, traditional Christmas dinner, afternoon tea and Christmas cake, carols and after dinner entertainment.


Our base here is once again the excellent AA3* rated ROYAL YORK & FAULKNER HOTEL. One of our most popular and highly praised hotels, the Royal York 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, telephone and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.


Departing Newark early morning, we travel via Leicester into Warwickshire. Then principally utilising the motorway system, we skirt the scenic Cotswolds so into Devon to the south coast at Sidmouth, where we are welcomed with mulled wine and mince pies.

• Full day visit to the historic city of Exeter which has one of the finest Cathedrals in the country and delightful rejuvenated quayside

We then return to Sidmouth for late afternoon when we are served afternoon tea and Christmas cake at the hotel
• Full day scenic tour east along the coast taking in the resorts of Seaton, Lyme Regis and West Bay.
