You’ll explore Devon the old-fashioned way on this trip. You’ll begin by riding a grand steam locomotive from the seaside resort of Paignton to Kingswear, a charming village on the banks of the River Dart. You’ll chug past sandy beaches and dramatic cliffs, lush countryside and wooded hills as you follow the river through the Dart Valley. A quick ferry ride is up next, as we cross the water to Dartmouth, a historical town backdropped by steep, wooded hills. You'll want to have your camera ready for your stop here. Then it’s back onto the river for a 12-mile trip to Totnes, snaking past rolling hills, chocolate-box villages and tree-edged banks. Keep your eyes peeled for darting kingfishers and playful seals, and have a camera handy as we pass the former home of Dame Agatha Christie. Adult price from £74.
Agatha Christie’s holiday home and a cruise down the River Dart – this trip will take you right back to the 1950s. The star of the show is Agatha Christie’s riverside escape, Greenway House, which she described as the loveliest place in the world. It’s no wonder the author fell in love with the place – romantic gardens are crisscrossed with rambling paths scattered with primroses, bluebells, and towering ferns. You’ll have plenty of time to appreciate the river views, as well as the family’s collection of botanical books and archaeological finds. After visiting the house, you'll make your way down to the river's edge to set off on a short, scenic cruise down the River Dart to Dartmouth. Adult price from £56.
This trip takes you to Wibecombe, a village into Dartmoor National Park in Devon. But everything starts with a scenic drive through Dartmoor National Park. This is hallowed ground for hikers, who come to ride the waves of heather-fleeced hillside that cover more than 900 square kilometres of Devon. Your first chance to stretch your legs will come in Widecombe. Patchwork fields, a 14th-century church and a cosy cottage-style pub make up this village’s look. After just under an hour you’ll be back on the bus blazing a trail to Buckfast Abbey. Peel your eyes for the Dartmoor ponies that run wild in this part of the national park. And, when you arrive at Buckfast Abbey, you’ll have time to take in the camera-worthy views. Adult price from £27.
