Experience the delights of the Devonshire countryside with a 5 day trip on board one of Limitless Travel's accessible luxury coaches.This trip is a great way to see all the best bits of Devon in just one holiday.
1. Stroll along the harbours...
No trip to the seaside is complete without actually seeing the sea… whether you want to brave the beach or just fancy a stroll along the harbour. Devon is home to some of the prettiest harbour views in the UK, but our favourite has to be Ilfracombe. Take time to take the view in and stop by Damien Hirst’s Verity which looks right out over the Bristol channel.
2. Take an ice cream pit stop...
A perfect holiday treat while you relax in the sun… and where better to sample the variety of flavours than Devon. There will be something to suit everyone taste buds; whether you stay safe or venture out and try a new flavour is up to you.
We recommend heading to the harbour in Torquay for a pit stop at Roly’s Fudge Pantry!
3. Get lost in the markets...
Aimlessly wander round Tavistock’s 900 year old Pannier market, currently housed in a magnificient Victorian market hall, and pick up a souvenir or two.
This market attracts customers from far and wide, all revelling in the quality and variety of products on offer. It’s crammed with an eclectic mix of booksellers, soapsellers, chocolatiers and artists.
4. Sit back and relax...
Whether it is on the sea front in Ilfracombe, the harbour in Torquay or overlooking the river in Tavistock let a few hours pass sitting in a café idly watching the world go by. One thing to make sure you do, say yes to the Devonshire cream tea!
Did you know? Devonshire cream teas have been made with cream on the bottom and jam on top ever since their origin in Tavistock Abbey in the 11th century.
5. Explore Dartmoor National Park...
With deep river valleys, wild open moorland, quaint villages and it's own rare wildlife, Dartmoor National Park is a must see when in Devon. With an area of 954 km² there is always a new breathtaking view to see round every corner.
The most iconic sight has to be a herd of Dartmoor ponies grazing together, with the majestic rolling valleys of Dartmoor as their backdrop.
