Christmas in the West Country

We are pleased to return to the delightful City of Plymouth with its great naval history, from the time of Sir Francis Drake and the Spanish Armada to today’s ultra modern navy dockyards.

As well as free time to explore the city, we also include 2 half day excursions, one into Cornwall and the second to rugged Dartmoor. In addition to 4 night’s dinner, bed and breakfast, we also include three lunches and entertainment each evening.


Tour highlights:

  • 3 lunches

  • Evening entertainment

  • Free time in Plymouth

  • Looe

  • Tamar Valley, Tavistock & Dartmoor


At time of publication the Christmas programme has not been finalised and may be subject to change.


This tour includes our door to door home collection service.

Day 1

Morning collection from home to join the coach for the journey to the West Country, arriving at the hotel in Plymouth late afternoon. We meet the hotel team for a drinks reception before dinner is served, followed by an evening of entertainment from the resident DJ.


Day 2: Christmas Eve

This morning we cross the Tamar Bridge at Saltash and drive into Cornwall making a visit to the resort of Looe, returning to our hotel in time for lunch. The afternoon is free for you to explore Plymouth, visit the famous Barbican, the Hoe, or look around the city centre and search for that last minute present. Later in the afternoon, tea and mince pies will be available followed by free time to relax before dinner and tonight’s entertainment. For those wishing to attend Midnight Mass details of local church services will be available at hotel reception (transport not included).

Day 3: Christmas Day

Merry Christmas to all! Enjoy a leisurely breakfast, enter the chef’s Christmas cake competition and then perhaps take a stroll in the city or along the Hoe to work up an appetite for our traditional Christmas lunch. We have a relaxing afternoon with tea and a slice of Christmas cake and maybe a few board games before this evening’s buffet. The evening ends with entertainment.

Day 4: Boxing Day

Departing our hotel after a leisurely breakfast, we enjoy an excursion along the Tamar Valley to Tavistock and the edge of Dartmoor before returning to our hotel for lunch. This afternoon is free for you to do as you wish, maybe find a bargain in the sales, which usually start on Boxing Day. Pastries and tea are served this afternoon and tonight sees our farewell Gala Dinner and a final night of entertainment.
