Our A-B Newquay coach left Chester Road at 9.00am for our long journey to Salcombe, Devon where we were visiting the National Trust property at Overbeck’s. We had a much smaller coach to travel in on this visit because we had been pre-warned that the car park there would not take a full-size coach.
As we approached the property, we could see why they had told us not to come in a large coach. The approach roads were steep, narrow and full of hair-pin bends. Amazingly, with a bit of manoeuvring, our experienced coach driver got us safely to Overbeck’s tiny car park. How he turned his coach around, was a mystery.
