Cricket St Thomas offers the wonderful mix of excellent accommodation, daily activities and nightly entertainment that you have come to expect from a Warner’s hotel, and from this excellent base we visit Dorchester, Wells, Sidmouth and Seaton for a ride on the famous tramway.
Day 1 After our morning taxi pick up, we make our way to Dorchester with some free time to get refreshments. We continue to Chard and our hotel, to settle in, enjoy dinner and our ﬁrst night of fantastic entertainment.
Day 2 Today we drive down to the coast to Seaton and board the famous Seaton Tramway for a three-mile journey by narrow gauge tram through the glorious Axe Valley, through two nature reserves, to Colyton. After some free time to get some refreshments, we continue to Sidmouth, for free time in this beautiful Regency town.
