Enjoy an early autumn break on the English Riviera, staying on Torquay's picturesque headland with direct access to the SW Coastal Path. Much of Devon is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, head inland to experience the seemingly endless scenery of Dartmoor National Park where wild ponies roam this rugged protected landscape.

Spend the morning at leisure - perhaps make the most of the hotel’s leisure facilities or take a scenic stroll along the SW Coastal Path. This afternoon, enjoy a lovely drive along the coast, around the Exe Estuary to the charming, unspoilt resort of Budleigh Salterton with a pebble beach and independent shops.

Wednesday

It’s all about Dartmoor National Park today, starting with a morning break in the quaint moorland village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor. We’ll continue to Badgers Holt Tearooms where we’ve arranged a Ploughman’s lunch at this tranquil beauty spot. Finish the day with peace and serenity at Buckfast Abbey. The impressive 11th century Abbey is complimented by spacious gardens, a restaurant and gift shops.

Thursday

This morning, we’ll sail down the River Dart to the National Trust’s Greenway House & Gardens, treasured holiday home of Agatha Christie. The Georgian house is full of collectables and the woodland and walled gardens make for a lovely autumnal walk.
