Turkey & Tinsel in
18th - 22nd November 2019

Our second festive tour is to Ilfracombe, the premier holiday resort in North Devon. It enjoys a setting of rare beauty amongst the breath taking scenery of Exmoor and the North Devon coastline. The town nestles in the hills and cliffs of Capstone and Hillsborough which overlook the recently re-developed harbour.

Tuesday (alias Christmas Eve) We start our day with a visit to Barnstaple, largely unchanged in over 150 years, with it’s historic Pannier Market. After lunch we visit the Dartington Crystal Factory and enter the Factory Experience for the chance to  watch the craftsmen at work, perfecting an art that's 3000 years old. We return to the hotel in plenty of time for a Gala Dinner followed by dancing and entertainment.

Wednesday (alias Christmas Day) is a free day to enjoy Ilfracombe, but before you go out try your skill and guess the weight of the Christmas cake. Make sure you return to the hotel in time for the Christmas Day Traditional Grand Festive Lunch with a visit from Santa. You will also enjoy afternoon Tea and minced pies with games. In the evening there will be dinner followed by a Christmas Party

Thursday (alias Boxing Day) After breakfast we will enjoy a scenic drive to Exmoor National Park and Lynton & Lynmouth, known by the Victorians as Little Switzerland. Enjoy a ride on the 600ft Victorian cliff railway before we return for a pre-lunch glass of punch and the Grand Boxing Day Lunch. You will again have some free time in the afternoon before our dinner, followed by a Farewell Fancy Dress Party (costume optional) with prize giving, dancing and entertainment.
