Day 1 – This morning our friendly driver will take us to Bath, where we can enjoy free time. Later, we will continue our journey to the Royal York & Faulkner Hotel in Sidmouth and on arrival we will enjoy mulled wine and mince pies.

Day 2 – After breakfast we visit Otter Nurseries Garden Centre for a walk around. Established in 1964, this Ottery Garden Centre covers over 100-acres and includes growing fields, polytunnels and glasshouses. Unlike most garden centres, they grow many of the plants that they sell! We take you to Torquay for the remainder of the day, so perhaps head to the Harbour, which offers shops, cafés and a lovely marina to explore.

Day 3 – A leisure day to explore pretty Sidmouth, the most upmarket and elegant resort in Devon. You will enjoy a stroll along the esplanade lined with smart hotels and houses and may find a bargain amongst the fine local shops that throng the town centre.

Day 4 – This morning we visit Sidmouth’s Donkey Sanctuary. Set along the historic Jurassic Coast, this working farm is home to hundreds of donkeys, mules and hinnies who have been rescued or relinquished into the charity’s care. Afterwards, we visit Seaton for some free time before returning to the hotel.

Day 5 – After breakfast we travel home with comfort stops along the way.
