Thursday 8th August


The route is rural and goes through some pleasing countryside to Tiverton.

Post Run
Tiverton Castle is just north of the town. It looks a bit like a manor house with battlements drawn on, but looks a popular visit. National Trust property Knightshayes Court is also an option.

However a drive to Dunster Castle through the Exmoor National Park looks a great option and from there a night in the seaside resort of Minehead looks like a tantalising opportunity to try a night at Butlins.
