Itinerary

Relax and enjoy a luxurious break in the heart of the English Riviera, one of the most temperate areas of the UK. This hotel offers excellent quality and is the epitome of comfort and style

Saltram House
Discover a house full of treasures, secrets and intrigue, a secret garden and beautiful parkland to explore – Saltram is one of Britain’s best preserved early Georgian houses and has a large collection of paintings, including several by Sir Joshua Reynolds.

The current Georgian facade was built around a much earlier house and was designed by Robert Adam. It was deemed by architectural critic Pevsner to be “the most impressive country house in Devon”, and the drawing room is considered to be one of Adam’s finest interiors

Dartmouth by steam train & river cruise
We enjoy a scenic steam train journey from Paignton to Kingswear, where we take the foot ferry across the river to Dartmouth. A circular river cruise is included before some free time to explore this beautiful town, famous for the Royal Naval College and Bayard’s Cove, filming location of TV series the Onedin Line. We return to Paignton via steam train

Brixham
Explore this quaint fishing village with winding streets and a traditional harbour featuring a replica of Drake’s ship, the Golden Hind

Your hotel 
The Palace Hotel is a luxurious 3-star hotel in a superb seafront location, a short walk from the high street and promenade. It offers ensuite bedrooms and a superb restaurant featuring 5 course silver service, swimming pool, gym and health spa, with a lift to all floors
