Sidmouth Festive Break

Join us for a Festive Break at this superb hotel, with additional festive fare of Mulled Wine & Mince pies on arrival, a Traditional Christmas dinner with crackers, Afternoon Tea & Christmas Cake, with entertainment every evening, including Carols performed after dinner on one evening.


Monday 7 December

Depart the local area with a lunch stop on route, arriving at our hotel in Sidmouth late afternoon. This glorious regency seaside town is nestled into the Jurassic Coast and yet enjoys a largely flat town centre.  The highly regarded Royal York & Faulkner Hotel is positioned in the centre of the elegant Esplanade.


Tuesday 8 December

We take a drive to Exmouth to board one of the large heated cruise boats for a trip around the Exe estuary.  Your Skipper will give you a live commentary on the history of the area, the beautiful sights and the resident and visiting winter wildlife.  As a designated RAMSAR site, the River Exe is one of the top rivers in the country for wildlife and is a feeding ground for several seals. (For anybody who would like to visit the Donkey Sanctuary we will offer an optional trip this afternoon).


Wednesday 9 December

Today we visit Exeter where the Christmas Market takes place on Cathedral Green. Around 90 wooden chalets will be selling a wide range of Christmas crafts, gifts, festive food and drink.


Thursday 10 December

Enjoy the day in Sidmouth, or join the coach to Axminster, with its country market today.  After time browsing we continue to the Ottery St Mary Garden Centre to explore their stunning Christmas displays, pick up the latest ideas and maybe a decoration or two! 


Friday 11 December

After breakfast we will start the journey home, with suitable breaks on route for coffee and lunch, arriving back in the local area early evening.
