3* Royal York & Faulkner Hotel: Coldharbour Mill & River Exe Cruise

Tuesday 25 February

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.

 

Wednesday 26 February

A day at leisure in Sidmouth. An optional visit to The Donkey Sanctuary this afternoon.

 

Thursday 27 February

Today we take a guided tour around Coldharbour Mill, one of the oldest woollen mills in the UK having been in continuous production since 1797. Originally owned by world-renowned textile producers Fox Brothers, the Mill took fleece from all over the world and transformed it into yarn, cloth and textiles. Today the rich heritage lives on as one of the finest working wool museums where visitors are not just able to relive the sights and sounds of the industrial revolution but also see crafts men and women making traditional textiles, beautiful knitting yarn and hand-woven rugs.  We will also spend time today at Ottery St Mary Garden Centre.

 

Friday 28 February

This morning we head to Exmouth to board a heated boat for a cruise along the river Exe.  Your Skipper will give you a live commentary on the history of the area, the beautiful sights and the resident and visiting wildlife. As a designated Ramsar site, the Exe is one of the top rivers in the country for wildlife and is a feeding ground for several seals, you may be lucky enough to see the resident seal on your trip.

This afternoon we have time to explore the Cathedral city of Exeter.

 

Saturday 29 February

Departing after breakfast we travel home with a lunch stop on route arriving back early evening.
