Step back in time as the village of Dunster lights its Medieval streets with just candles. This magical event, which begins at dusk, is a unique chance to enjoy the village and its magnificent castle illuminated much more softly whilst joining in on the traditional atmosphere.

DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – On our way to our hotel we visit Lynton – set amongst the spectacular scenery of an area known as England’s Little Switzerland – Lynton is a small Victorian town with a selection of shops, tearooms and cafés. After some free time, we continue to our hotel and this evening we will enjoy a dinner there.
Day 2 – After a leisurely morning, our driver will take you on a scenic drive through Exmoor National Park as we travel to Bideford, set on the banks of the River Torridge. Beautiful Bideford is the perfect spot to enjoy a couple of hours. Stroll along the lanes which are lined with quirky little shops and cosy cafés or head to the quay and admire the expansive waterfront. Later this afternoon we will be picked up by a shuttle bus which will take us to the village of Dunster. Every year on the first weekend in December this remarkably preserved medieval village lights up its street with candles; the atmosphere is both traditional and exciting and the entertainment throughout the village includes carol singers, morris dancers, hand bell ringers, a large fairground organ and choirs in the parish church.
Day 3 – Enjoying a leisurely journey home, we have a comfort stop at Clarks Shopping Village, home to over 90 shops to explore before continuing home.
