Staying at The Best Western Livermead Cliff
6 DAYS | 18th August 2017
The jewel of the English Riviera, Torquay is a sophisticated holiday resort with a truly international flavour. The palm trees and colourful flower beds, with the glistening yachts in the busy harbour, give Torquay its unique atmosphere. The resort boasts a host of amenities with smart shops, places of interest and all types of entertainment.
The Best Western Livermead Cliff is set in a perfect location on the waterfront in Torquay. This traditional hotel boasts a stunning sea view lounge and bar overlooking Torbay. There is also the recently refurbished Oceanic Restaurant and the new Riviera Terrace. All rooms have private bathrooms, flatscreen TV, telephone, hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities. The hotel does have a lift.
Depart Macclesfield calling for coffee en-route to Cadbury Garden Centre. We then continue on our journey and aim to arrive in Torquay late afternoon.
Morning orientation tour of Torquay with remainder of the day at leisure. Why not take a stroll along the seafront or perhaps catch the local bus to Paignton or Brixham? There is a bus stop directly outside the hotel.
This morning we venture to Totnes for the Good Food Sunday Market, enjoy free time to wander and have lunch before our afternoon visit to the Benedictine Monastery of Buckfast Abbey. Take a stroll through the grounds and why not partake of a Devon cream tea in the café before we return to the hotel.
Today we venture to Dartmouth with its ancient narrow streets, its museum, shops, art galleries, cafés and pubs. Take time to wander at leisure before our afternoon treat. Firstly we board the boat for a trip across the river, then join the steam train for our scenic journey to Paignton. The coach will be waiting to take you on the short journey back to the hotel.
A day at leisure in Torquay. Why not walk to the pretty village of Cockington Forge for lunch or perhaps catch the local bus to the model village in Babbacombe?
Sadly we say farewell to Torquay and head north calling for coffee en-route to Tewkesbury. There will be time for a stroll around the local market and have lunch before we continue north making a quick comfort stop en-route. We aim to arrive in Macclesfield early evening.
