Lovely holiday but could be better with a few small changes to the the itinerary ...

The hotel needs a facelift but it is comfortable, situated in a perfect location on flat sea front. Steam train journey was very relaxing, nice country views. Trip to Buckfast Abbey was quite short but it is a lovely building and beautiful grounds. Amazing journey to Mount Edgecombe all along the cliff tops, fantastic sea views. Mount Edgecombe is a lovely place but unfortunatly we didn't have enough time to explore all areas. We should have gone down to the waters edge first and made our way back to the house. Definitely would have been better to stay longer at Mount Edgecombe than to be dropped at Plymouth indoor shopping centre for 1, 1/2 hours. In my opinion Plymouth shouldn't be on the itinerary if there is not enough time to visit The Hoe. One of our optional tours was to Babbacombe theatre, brilliant show, well worth the visit. The other trip was to Dawlish which I didn't go on, instead I went into Paignton centre and sea front. Our driver was very knowlegable about the area which was excellant. Enjoyed the holiday, a lovely part of the British Isles.
