“A beautiful area to visit, lovely market towns like Buxton and Bakewell (and the yummy Bakewell Pudding), historic houses and heritage railways. We travelled on a Rail Discoveries tour which was excellent, all trips included and a great tour manager to ensure it went without a hitch.

“Great holiday made even better by the fantastic weather. The itinerary is just right, packing plenty in with 1 free day to do as you please. Our tour manager Colin was knowledgeable about the area which is an added bonus of course. As regular customers with the company we're very aware that this is not always the case, they are after all tour managers not tour guides. The 3 star Barnstaple hotel is only let down by it's location, a half hour walk from town with an industrial estate behind it. This made it a bit noisy at times as they worked through the nights. If it wasn't for that I suspect this would be a 4 star hotel as everything else was excellent and the food outstanding, best choice and menu we've ever had on a Rail Discoveries or Great Rail Journeys holiday. I believe that next year they're using a hotel closer to the town centre by the same hotel chain, so hopefully that will help make a great holiday into a perfect holiday.

The Isle of Man

“An interesting and well organised trip. It was quite often possible to ‘do my own thing’ rather than follow the planned itinerary in every detail. The hotel was comfortable and the food varied between good and excellent. It was very helpful to have pre-paid tickets for all public transport and many museums etc. The Isle of Man is scenically varied and the trams and railways are delightful.
