About Your Trip

With hidden coves, a craggy coastline and some of the most beautiful beaches in Britain, Devon is an adventure lover’s paradise. This six-day trip is primed for water babies – expect several swims at golden beaches, enticing lidos and remote wild swimming spots, together with kayak and stand-up paddleboard excursions. When not on the water, you’ll be hiking sections of the South West Coast Path and cycling to Dartmoor along the pretty Tarka Trail. Foodies will delight in the offerings of Devon, with seaside Sri Lankan curry, afternoon tea at an English country manor, wood-fired pizza, and picnics on the beach. Sleep it off in three traditional hotels, including an old coaching inn and a clifftop retreat.

Accommodation

Sandy Cove Hotel , Ilfracombe

Most of your time at the cliffside Sandy Cove Hotel in Ilfracombe will be spent marvelling at the vistas and inhaling fresh salty air. Each room is light-filled and spacious, some even come with sea views.

The Three Crowns , Chagford

This fairytale inn in Chagford is sprinkled with 13th-century features, from the thatched roof to the beamed ceiling and huge inglenook fireplaces. Take time to sample the extensive wine list and local dishes on offer here.

Northgate House Hotel , Buckfastleigh

On the southern slopes of Dartmoor National Park, this pretty hotel is just a two-minute walk from Buckfast Abbey. Rooms are generous, some with private balconies. Nightfall calls for a cocktail (or two) at the hotel bar with its crackling log fire.
