The iconic palm trees could fool you into thinking you were in the Mediterranean. The coast of Torquay is scattered with beautiful piers and russet-red cliffs. Enjoy long leisurely walks along the promenade and take in the relaxed atmosphere. Make time to walk up the steps of Royal Terrace Gardens. Remember to take in the amazing sea views across the bay at night with the lights reflecting onto the sea. Add an Agatha Christie connection and steam trains and it all adds up to some grand days out beside the sea.

Tavistock is the main town of Dartmoor's western moor. It is an exceptionally attractive town owing as much to some fine Victorian architecture as to its picturesque location on the banks of the river Tavy. It was the establishing of a Benedictine abbey on the banks of the River Tavy that put Tavistock on the map although it had to be rebuilt before it turned into the West Country’s most important Benedictine Abbey around the turn of the last millenium after it was destroyed by Vikings. Now a busy market town, there is no shortage of shops and cafes and it is also home to a purpose built pannier market, possibly the best in the region.

Cotehele Tudor House (entrance included)

The award-winning Cotehele is a wonderfully preserved Tudor house filled with stories and legends, situated deep within the Tamar Valley. Outside, the formally planted terraces, 'Valley Garden', are home to a medieval stewpond and dovecote, the Upper Garden and orchards, all of which offer great opportunities for exploring The house at Cotehele was mainly built c1485-1627. Its granite and slatestone walls contain intimate chambers adorned with tapestries, original furniture and armour. The new museum at the Quay forms part of a complex of historic buildings as well as the home of the restored sailing barge Shamrock.
