Autumn in Sidmouth

Autumn in Sidmouth

Elegance in East Devon

We return to the quintessential seaside town of Sidmouth in East Devon for a five-night early autumn break. We have been guests of the Royal York and Faulkner Hotel for many years, and know we will receive a warm welcome, great food and attentive service from the Hooke family and their team.


Please note that the itinerary for this tour is provisional. Full details will be provided nearer the date of departure.


Our lunch stop en-route to the West Country will be at Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens, with its exotic plants from all over the world, walled garden and colonial-style teahouse.



We drive through the Blackdown Hills to Taunton, where there will be time for lunch. This afternoon we visit Coldharbour Mill, recognised by Historic England as one of the best-preserved textile mills in the country. We explore the working Victorian factory to discover how wool is turned into yarn and fabrics.

Enjoy a leisurely morning in Sidmouth. This afternoon we drive over Woodbury Common to Exmouth. Here we join Stuart Line for a cruise on the quiet and calm waters of the River Exe. The skipper will provide an informative commentary, and a Devon Cream Tea will be served as we enjoy the scenery and wildlife.

Pecorama is one of Devon's top attractions and stands on a hillside overlooking the fishing village of Beer. Admire the model railway layouts and take a ride on the mile-long Beer Heights Miniature Railway. Our second stop of the day will be at pretty Burrow Farm Gardens, situated in idyllic countryside near Axminster.

We travel home, calling to say hello to the residents of the Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary. By the end of the afternoon, we reach the waiting taxis that will take you home to your door.
