Potential visitors to holiday cottages in Devon & Cornwall were being reminded, prior to half-term week, that just because the rail lines are closed, the rest of the South West is not.
The delightfully scenic line that serves some key towns along this stretch of the country’s coastline could possibly take six weeks before services resume, however, access is still more than available via road and there’s plenty for the whole family to do!
Coastal towns in England’s South West are hoping that the February half term will see an influx of visitors, and with that, some much-needed income, after an eventful start to 2014 in terms of the weather.
Paul Conibeare, general manager of the West Somerset Railway, said: “We are getting a lot of questions from potential customers at trade shows and people are asking: ‘Will you be open for half-term?’
There was more news ahead of the school half-term from neighbouring Somerset. The message from John Turner, of the Somerset Tourism Association (STA) stated: “We are concerned as most of the county is unaffected by the flooding.” Meaning that they are concerned people will stay away because of what they have seen or heard in the news.
Fortunately, here at Higher Bowden Holiday Cottages we are joining many other local businesses in declaring that it is indeed business as usual, and potential visitors are being urged to come and enjoy the region during the half-term period.
