A Special Day Out to see the Wonderful Counties that Lie Beyond Devon's Borders


Whilst Devon is my home county, and I think the county that offers the most opportunities to the traveller in the whole of the United Kingdom, I can't deny the uniqueness of the counties that surround it. As a result I have visited Cornwall, Dorset and Somerset many times myself for day trips and longer holidays. In Cornwall we have wonderful coastline, enchanting fishing villages and beautiful gardens of Worldwide renown, as well as, of course, the Eden Project. In Dorset we have the Jurassic Coast with its extraordinary geology and wealth of fossils, as well as incredible natural beauty and unspoilt towns. In Somerset we have the ancient Roman spa town of Bath, the magnificent Wells Cathedral, and one of my favourite places, Glastonbury, which has a truly unique feel.

So, please feel free to come to me to discuss where you would like to go and what you would like to see, and I will organise a special day, or more if you so wish, to Cornwall, Dorset or Somerset.

Itinerary

9. 00 am - collection from you accommodation

You may be staying in Devon, or maybe not, but you have good reason to want to visit Cornwall, Dorset or Somerset during your time in the United Kingdom, so why not let me take you for a day trip to visit some of the wonderful places in these three counties? Whatever your interests, and whichever direction you want to go in, I will organise a great day out for you, then drive you around whilst you sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenery.

5. 30pm - return to your accommodation

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: For this one day tour, I will collect you from your accommodation at 9am, as long as it is within reasonable distance of where I live. If you are intending to take a several day tour, then I can arrange for airport pickups, or collection from other parts of the country.
