Rolling country meadows and glistening blue sea go hand in hand to create the holiday of dreams for any heritage rail enthusiasts. Keeping close to the market town of Tiverton, we enjoy scenic journeys on no less than five different railways, providing you with your perfect escape. From Buckfastleigh to Totnes, Bishops Lydeard to Minehead, it’s time to sit back and relax as we travel in style through this beautiful corner of English countryside. We promise to make it one you will never forget!
Make your own way to our hotel, where you meet an experienced Tour Manager and enjoy a relaxing evening.
This morning, we board our coach and travel to the picturesque village of Bishops Lydeard to join the West Somerset Railway to Minehead. The route follows over 20 miles of glorious Somerset countryside, with highlights including the distant hills of Exmoor, spectacular views along the Devon coastline, and Quantock Hills – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
From here, we travel to the pretty, historic village of Dunster, which is filled with many listed buildings. Dunster Castle is set on the hills and offers dramatic views over the village.
Today, our coach takes us to Woody Bay Station, where we board the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway for a 2-mile round trip through stunning North Devon countryside before our coach takes us to the nearby town of Lynton. From here, we take the Victorian Funicular Cliff Railway, a unique water-powered lift which offers spectacular views of the North Devon coastline as you glide the 862-foot track to the town of Lynmouth. Explore each town's wealth of quaint curio, pottery and souvenir shops, and be sure to visit the local history museum.
This morning, we join the South Devon Railway at Buckfastleigh and embark on the 7-mile journey which follows a picturesque route alongside the River Dart to Totnes. On arrival, we board the boat cruise service and follow the valley full of natural beauty to Dartmouth. This beautiful fishing port is filled with narrow streets, sweeping steps and medieval buildings. After free time, we join the foot ferry to Kingswear and then board the Dartmouth Steam Railway to Paignton, running 7 miles along the spectacular Torbay coast and through the wooded slopes.
After breakfast, you are free to check out of our hotel and make your own way home or even take the opportunity to explore Tiverton.
