DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – Enjoy a leisurely stop in Cheltenham, where you can stroll along the leaf-lined promenade and perhaps pop into a cosy café, or one of its many independent restaurants for a little something to eat. After some free time, we continue to our hotel.
Day 2 – This morning we visit Ilfracombe, a charming harbour town steeped in maritime history, which remains one of the key working fishing ports in North Devon. This afternoon, we’ll take you to Lynmouth for the remainder of the day. Later this afternoon we will be picked up by a shuttle bus which will take us to the festive village of Dunster. Every year this remarkably preserved medieval village lights up its street with candles; the atmosphere is both traditional and exciting. There is entertainment throughout the village that includes carol singers, morris dancers, hand bell ringers, a large fairground organ with choirs from the parish church. (Please note: dinner is not included today.)
Day 3 – Shortly after breakfast we take you to Gloucester for a little free time. Perhaps visit the award-winning National Waterways Museum, shop in the thriving city centre, or perhaps enjoy a coffee by the Gloucester Quays. After some free time, we continue our journey back to the East Midlands.
