From Jurassic Coast to Stunt Car in England’s South West

England’s Southwest region is a swathe of gorgeous countryside that includes four world heritage sites, three national parks, and the epic Jurassic Coast. Wherever you go, you’ll find verdant English landscapes, secluded stays, and fantastic adventures.

When to go:
All Year Round


Your week discovering the charismatic counties of the Southwest begins on the Jurassic Coast. It’s a place of long sandy beaches and rugged cliffs where 18 million years of geological history feels remarkably present.

A world heritage site, it’s also a natural haven for wildlife. Either in a speeding RIB or a cruising sail yacht, search for dolphins at sea or, alternatively, engage with conservation efforts to regenerate the local oyster population.

For something more energetic, embark on a coasteering adventure to discover this coastline’s beauty from every angle. Round off a spectacular day with a sundowner before a fabulous dinner in an out-of-the-way gem on England’s romantic south coast.


Traveling inland, to the undulating hills and wood-beamed villages of the West Country. You’ll discover incredible monastic sites and learn about King Henry VII’s dissolution of the monasteries.

In one of the lushest regions of the country, you’ll wander magnificent English country gardens attached to historically important stately homes. Glastonbury is an island of spirituality connected with the Arthurian Legends. You’ll soak up its fabulous ambiance while staying for four nights at fabulous Camp Kerala situated near the town’s namesake music festival site.

With Camp Kerala as your base, try your hand at a James Bond-style stunt driving experience on a former WW2 airfield. The airfield will be entirely at your disposal for the day, and, regardless of your experience, you’ll learn driving skills employed by stuntmen and close protection driving specialists. Think evasive driving, high-speed chases, advanced car control, and even how to elude a driving ambush.


Your return to West Country nature sees you experience this region’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in a variety of thrilling ways. Hike romantic Exmoor; go spelunking in Cheddar; test yourself with clay pigeon shooting; paraglide or glide over Blackdown Hills and the Quantocks.

Finally, go foraging with experts who will cook a delicious meal for you from your finds, the true flavors of the West Country in your dish.

While you’ll have no doubt fitted in an afternoon cream tea on your journey, it’s not a visit to the West Country without a tasting of its specialty cider. After a cider farm tour, taste test cider and—why not—some cider brandy as well.
