Countryside Escapes to Devon

Countryside Escapes to Devon

Enjoy relaxation, tranquility and blissful days as we escape to the country in this summer getaway. Discover the history and heritage that surrounds Barnstaple and Bideford, travel by steam on the West Somerset Railway and discover what makes Devon so irresistable.


Barnstaple is steeped with history and is perhaps

 the oldest borough in the United Kingdom...


Enjoy travelling on the West Somerset Railway

 which features miles of railway heritage from country to coast.


Set off from the quaint village of Bishops-Lydeard

 and arrive at the coastal town of Minehead for some free time.



Enjoy the coastal walks and views on offer, leaving only but a trail of steam behind you.


We'll have time to unwind at our elegant hotel in Barnstaple

 which boasts, and rightly so, gorgeous views of the river Taw

 and is just a stones throw away from the town center.
