Devon & Somerset Steam & Cruise

Itinerary

Day 1: After local pickups we travel to Tiverton in mid-Devon for a 4 night stay.

Day 2: After a leisurely breakfast we head to the seaside resort of Exmouth, where artists and poets have been inspired over the centuries. In the afternoon we have a relaxing River Exe circular cruise with live commentary on the sights, history and wildlife of the surrounding area.

Day 3: Tour through the delightful Exmoor National Park to the unique medieval village of Dunster which has over 200 listed buildings, before continuing to the coastal resort of Minehead. Enjoy a nostalgic steam train ride through the glorious Somerset countryside on the West Somerset Railway, the longest steam heritage railway.

Day 4: Explore the ancient market town of Tiverton which sits in a delightful setting on the banks of the River Exe, Bickleigh Mill which is
one of Devon’s largest rural shopping centres located in a historic working watermill. Watch the world go by very peacefully along the
idyllic Grand Western Canal on the last horse drawn barge trip in the South West – a little bit of heaven in Devon.

Day 5: We head for home.
