Budleigh Salterton on the Jurassic Coast and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The beach is pebble like much  of this area but it is safe for bathing. Take a relaxing holiday in this lovely spot.

Lundy, a very recognisable name in the British Shipping Forecast. Where is it? In the Bristol Channel and the largest of the islands there. It is a Natural Character area - different!. This was awarded by Natural England.  The area is also a marine reserve, a marine conservation area and a Site of Specific Scientific Interest. Belongs to the National Trust

Exeter, one of the two large cities in Devon, the other being Plymouth. It is an attractive city with some unique shopping spots. Northernhay Gardens are next to the ruined castle, a very pleasant place.

Clovelly, a lovely little town, hilly cobbled streets, plenty of events, on the northern coast on the Bristol Channel. Lundy is actually part of the parish. There is access to the South West Coastal Path. 

Tiverton, home of the lovely Tiverton Lace still being produced today. Tiverton Castle is open during the summer. The Pannier Market has recently been redeveloped.

Torbay, the English Riviera. Popular with early humans as well, see Kents Cavern. Was a completely different place then, a wooded valley, but now the wonderful bay opens out in front of you. Torquay, Paignton and Brixham are the local resorts.

Totnes is a picturesque market town on the River Dart. English Heritage own Totnes Castle which rises high above the town. The town now has a 'New Age' image alongside the ancient. 

Paignton Blue Flag beaches in the English Rivieria. Lovely place for seaside holidays.

Please note that National Express coach services have been suspended due to the current pandemic.

Why not travel by Coach

If you do decide the leave the car at home and help the environment too, why not go National Express. They run coaches all over the country. Some pretty good fares too.

Just imagine - sit back and relax, no hassling with the traffic!!!

Do you know that you can book on your mobile phone and they will send the ticket as a text!!!!
