Featuring two of Devon’s most beautiful areas, this tour is perfect for anyone with limited time in the area, since it gives guests a great overview of two of Devon’s most beautiful areas, Dartmoor and the South Devon coast, in just one day. It also gives people a taste of just how varied the county is, from the rugged hilltops of Dartmoor National Park, with its atmosphere of foreboding, legend and history, to the dramatic beauty, lovely beaches and charming towns of the South Devon coastline.
We spend the morning on Dartmoor, experiencing the nature, Tors, Bronze Age history and myths and legends of this intriguing place, perhaps taking a short walk or two. What we do can be tailored according to your interests. We will then head to a favourite old Dartmoor inn for lunch, where you can taste the local ale and tasty home cooked food.
In the afternoon we will drive South, down to the coast. Here we give our guests a snapshot of fascinating World War Two history, with a very strong link to the USA, and we can take a wander on to one of the beautiful beaches. We’ll then enjoy driving along the coastal road to the picturesque and historically interesting town of Dartmouth, where we will have time to explore some of the attractive streets of this old naval town, and possibly stop for a traditional Devonshire cream tea. If time allows, we can then drive to Torquay, where we will tell you about Agatha Christie and her upbringing in this old seaside resort.
