No car to worry about, no traffic, no parking woes, just a superb 12-night trip, fully integrated with relaxing train travel and authentic activities.

Time is on your side on this brand-new addition to our ‘Slowly’ collection, as you start in the enchanting city of Bath – with a side visit to Stonehenge – meander to North Devon and wild Exmoor, crossing country to Mevagissey, Cornwall’s prettiest fishing village, with a final few days in perfect Penzance. 

Having spent plenty of time on the rails of the west country and southwest, we’ve sought out the simplest, most scenic routes to go alongside engaging excursions and the friendliest accommodation, so all you need to do is go on holiday!

Take a look at our other “Slowly…” holidays for inspiration, if you prefer a leisurely travel pace.
