Devon & Somerset Steam & Cruise

Devon & Somerset Steam & Cruise

Enjoy a wonderful break away as we visit two historic counties in the South West.

This was a popular holiday in 2015 as it stays in the market town of Tiverton in Mid Devon. We visit two historic counties offering beautiful scenery, plus we enjoy a boat trip on the River Exe, a steam train ride through lovely scenery and a horse drawn barge trip along a peaceful canal.

Day 1

We depart from your joining points and travel to the mid Devon town of Tiverton and our hotel, arriving in time for our evening meal.


Day 2

After a leisurely breakfast we join the coach and travel to the market town of Honiton where we enjoy a short break before re-joining our coach to the seaside town of Exmouth. We join our boat for a 90 minute cruise with a commentary on the River Exe viewing its history and wildlife. We re-join our coach for the journey back to our hotel.
