Devon's  Crealy Adventure Park
Devon's Crealy Great Adventure Park is an award winning family attraction located just minutes from junction 30 of the M5 near Exeter. The Park has over 60 rides and attractions set in over 100 acres of glorious Devon countryside. We are proud to be a park that caters for the whole family, from the smallest children to parents and grandparents alike. There are over 100 animals, 30 outdoor attractions and a variety of other activities to choose from. With heart-stopping rides for thrill seekers to soft-play and animal petting for younger guests, Devon's Crealy is the South West's number one family day out.

Wildwood Escot
Home to the Kennaway family for over 200 years the Escot of today is setting new standards in recreation with its exciting open access red squirrel encounter where visitors can get up close to these adorable creatures, world-class maze, birds of prey displays, otters and wild boar, unique (and scary!) woodland drop slide, saxon village, indoor playbarn and woodland play areas. There's an intriguing letterboxing trail to try and delicious home-cooked food in our Coach House Restaurant.  Known as the natural place for good reason, wherever you go at Escot you will see peacocks and guinea fowl roaming free and maybe the odd chicken or few! will cross your path too. The magnificent champion trees and woodland paths through daffodils, bluebells and rhododendrons are truly beautiful in springtime but whatever the season there is always some aspect of nature to catch your eye and make you stop and wonder for a while. Open all year, we hope you will enjoy the views, the beauty of the park, its quirky playfulness and will leave delighted, inspired and wanting to return again.

Maeve Hamilton Hercod

“I have enjoyed living overseas for many years, but whenever I can I love to come back to Devon, the county of my birth. These days I am happily settled in Bath where I have family and work as a guide. My career has taken me from teaching to broadcasting to running sailing courses and many more mundane things along the way, so I hope that all this experience can help me to keep tours running smoothly.”

Join us in Sidholme’s grand Music Room with its seven Osler glass chandeliers and recently restored Gothic-style Gray & Davison organ. Both are features of historical importance and during this event we celebrate the organ’s recent restoration with special musical performances in the evenings.

Friends of Sidholme Music Room

In 2013 a group of local volunteers came together to raise money to restore Sidholme’s 1855 Gray & Davison Organ, originally commissioned by the 6th Earl of Buckinghamshire. Following their success the committee have undertaken remedial work on the 1905 model B Bechstein grand piano, allowing the organ and piano to once again be played in tandem. The group is now focusing on the seven Osler glass chandeliers, installed in 1848 and originally gas fuelled, which are in urgent need of restoration to regain the original overhead lighting brilliance and the ambience of this magnificent room.

For more information of the events that the committee arrange and to support their projects, go to the Friends Of Sidholme Music Room Website

Discover the delights of Devon with stunning coastal views, unspoilt countryside and historic towns and fishing villages. Our knowledgeable tour manager will provide interesting facts as you sit back and relax en-route to various National Trust properties. We will take a cruise around the beautiful bay, spotting some of the highest cliffs from the Triassic era and the unique sea stacks at Ladram Bay.

Monday: Forde Abbey and Gardens A guided tour.

Forde Abbey in Dorset is a treasure in an area already known for its outstanding beauty. It is a family home as well as a living and breathing working estate, and welcomes visitors all year round.

The house is surrounded by 30 acres of spectacular award-winning gardens. The landscape has developed slowly since monastic times. The monks certainly grew vegetables in large quantities, but whatever dorset gardens they had have disappeared over the centuries.

The only monastic structure that remains today is the Great Pond at the top of the garden. This now brings water into the garden but originally its purpose was to power a mill for grain, which stood on the site of the old sawmills.

Tuesday: Stuart Line Boat cruise.

Exmouth is a Gateway town to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site and marks the start of the unique 95 miles of coastline.

The site was opened by HRH Prince Charles in 2002 and is marked by a Geoneedle at Orcombe Point.

In league with other natural sites such as the Grand Canyon and the Great Barrier Reef, the site exposes over 250 million years of the Earth’s history.

Our Jurassic Coast Cruise takes in the oldest section, known as the Triassic Era, famous for its deep red colour.  Your skipper will give you a live commentary during the cruise covering the changing history and appearance of the area as well as the wildlife and towns.  Tides permitting, the vessel will sail in close to the cliffs for a detailed view and then sail further out to offer a panoramic view.

Wednesday: Free day

Thursday : A La Ronde and Exmouth.

National trust quirky 18th-century, 16 sided house with fascinating interior decoration and collections.

Devon's  Crealy Adventure Park
Devon's Crealy Great Adventure Park is an award winning family attraction located just minutes from junction 30 of the M5 near Exeter. The Park has over 60 rides and attractions set in over 100 acres of glorious Devon countryside. We are proud to be a park that caters for the whole family, from the smallest children to parents and grandparents alike. There are over 100 animals, 30 outdoor attractions and a variety of other activities to choose from. With heart-stopping rides for thrill seekers to soft-play and animal petting for younger guests, Devon's Crealy is the South West's number one family day out.

Wildwood Escot
Home to the Kennaway family for over 200 years the Escot of today is setting new standards in recreation with its exciting open access red squirrel encounter where visitors can get up close to these adorable creatures, world-class maze, birds of prey displays, otters and wild boar, unique (and scary!) woodland drop slide, saxon village, indoor playbarn and woodland play areas. There's an intriguing letterboxing trail to try and delicious home-cooked food in our Coach House Restaurant.  Known as the natural place for good reason, wherever you go at Escot you will see peacocks and guinea fowl roaming free and maybe the odd chicken or few! will cross your path too. The magnificent champion trees and woodland paths through daffodils, bluebells and rhododendrons are truly beautiful in springtime but whatever the season there is always some aspect of nature to catch your eye and make you stop and wonder for a while. Open all year, we hope you will enjoy the views, the beauty of the park, its quirky playfulness and will leave delighted, inspired and wanting to return again.

Maeve Hamilton Hercod

“I have enjoyed living overseas for many years, but whenever I can I love to come back to Devon, the county of my birth. These days I am happily settled in Bath where I have family and work as a guide. My career has taken me from teaching to broadcasting to running sailing courses and many more mundane things along the way, so I hope that all this experience can help me to keep tours running smoothly.”

Dances can be energetic and lively or gentle and reflective. Though the dances chosen reflect the abilities of the group, the aim is always to experience the joy of dancing with others and to create a sense of well-being and community.

The varied walking programme on this break will take you through woodlands and the not-to-bemissed delights of contrasting coastal and riverside routes.

Walk from hotel to the east to the coast path up Salcombe Hill. Then inland to the Donkey Sanctuary. Rejoin the coast path at Dunscombe Cliffs and walk back to Sidmouth via the pretty village of Salcombe Regis. 

Walk from hotel west up Bulverton Hill, then cross Muttersmoor to the coast path at High Peak. Follow the coast path to Ladram Bay. Then follow a route partly along the coast and partly inland to Otterton. Transport back to hotel.

Meals: Packed lunches are provided on walking days

Activity Level: Leisurely, 4 days' of walking, average of 6 - 8 miles

"What shall I bring?" we recommend you come prepared for all weathers, regardless of the month you visit.
