West country Rail and Sail

Door to Door Service

A midweek tour combining a relaxing cruise along the Grand Western Canal, a railway journey, and time in the coastal resorts of Somerset and Devon. A morning in Tiverton gives us some free time before a gentle canal cruise by horse-drawn barge. Enjoy the tea and scones which will be served during the journey. Join the West Somerset Railway (Britain’s longest Steam railway) at Bishop’s Lydeard, for a scenic ride through the Quantock Hills to the resort of Minehead and, here, too, we will have some free time. A tour of the delightful villages of Devon is next on the list as we head North to the market town of Barnstaple, with an interesting stop at the Quince Honey Farm en-route.

Thursday

Your holiday starts with a pick-up from home by one of the vehicles in our Door-to-Door service and this will bring you through to our coach. Once everyone is on board, we'll make our way to Devon with suitable comfort breaks during the journey. We'll aim to arrive late afternoon to give you time to unpack and freshen up before dinner.

Friday

A morning free in Tiverton before a gentle cruise along the Grand Western Canal by horse-drawn barge. During the journey you will hear some tales about the canal and often there is a minute's silence, so you can experience the true peace and tranquility of travelling by horse-drawn barge. Tea and scones will be served during the journey.

Saturday

Join the West Somerset Railway, Britain's longest steam railway, at Bishops Lydeard for a scenic ride through the Quantock Hills to the resort of Minehead. Time at leisure in Minehead before continuing your journey by coach along the Somerset and Devon coast or head across Exmoor to return to the hotel.

Sunday

A tour of the delightful villages of Devon. Head north to the market town of Barnstaple with an interesting stop at the Quince Honey Farm en route

Monday

After breakfast we check out of the hotel and return home. A suitable stop will be made on route and we hope to arrive back in Beverley back 7pm where one of our Door to Door vehicles will be waiting here to take you back to your front door.
