Excursion 1 – Forde Abbey and Gardens:
Home to the stunning Mortlake tapestries, woven from the internationally famous Raphael cartoons, now housed in the V&A, the Abbey has a rich and varied history spanning 900 years. Walk in the actual footsteps of the monks, and explore the exquisite interior featured in the latest Hollywood adaptation of ‘Far From the Madding Crowd.’
Described by Rachel De Thame in September’s edition of The Sunday Times: “Even the green-fingered are not immune to fads: as with Dahlia ‘Cafe au Lait’ or ‘Labyrinth,’ suddenly it seems everyone is talking about a particular thing. And this year it’s a garden – Forde Abbey, near Chard in Dorset.” Thirty acres of award-winning gardens and the highest powered fountain in the country.
Excursion 2 – Stuartline Cruise Boat trip followed by free time in Exmouth:
Nearly 50 years of award-winning boat trips
Since 1968 Stuart Line Cruises has been one of Exmouth’s top attractions. With boat trips sailing the coast around Exeter, Torquay, Sidmouth and Exmouth, they offer hundreds of thousands of happy passengers a chance to see the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, the River Exe or a visit to a South Devon town.
Stuart Line Cruises has remained a family business with three boats operating in their distinctive bright colours. We have literally become part of the stunning scenery along on the water and are always on the list of “family attractions in Devon”!
Situated at the mouth of the beautiful Exe estuary and at the very beginning of the Jurassic Coast, Exmouth is one of the most picturesque holiday resorts on the south coast.
Surrounded by the beautiful Devon countryside, Exmouth is a bustling little town with a vibrant shopping centre that also hosts a wide range of leisure and entertainment facilities, including a cinema, theatre, sports amenities and a range of excellent restaurants.
