5 Day Tour

Babbacombe Steam & Cruise

4 Days

In 1846, Queen Victoria wrote: 'It's a beautiful spot... red cliffs and rocks with wooded hills like Italy and reminding one of a ballet or play where nymphs appear - such rocks and grottoes, with the deepest sea on which there was no ripple.'  Over 150 years later, it still feels the same as you stand and look across the beautiful Babbacombe Bay.

 Babbacombe offers all the beauty of the English Riviera without the hustle and bustle of the larger resorts,  In fact, a break here at any time of year is the perfect way to relax and unwind.

What The Price Includes
  • 3 nights accommodation
  • Breakfast & Evening Meal
  • Portarage
  • Dartmouth Steam Railway & River Cruise.

Dartmouth Steam Railway & River Cruise

From the cruise you'll also see Greenway House - Agatha Christie's home from 1938 to 1976, this house featured in many of her novels. Once back in Dartmouth, retrace your steps to board the train and return to Paignton, where your coach awaits.
