A Father’s Day to remember

13th June 2016    News

We all struggle thinking of gifts to give our Dads on Father’s Day, and end up reaching for the traditional socks, ties, sporting accessories and chocolates. Why not make a change this Sunday 19th June and take your Dad on a great day out? It’s the perfect opportunity to get the family together and show that you appreciate your Dad. We’ve rounded up the best Dad-friendly days out – take a look and choose something special for the Dad in your life:

1. Father and child adventurers can find out how to emulate Bear Grylls, one of the world’s most renowned survival specialists at a 24-hour survival academy on Dartmoor!

2. For petrol-head fathers, drive over to BHP Fuel Fest this June 18th-19th to get up close and personal with vintage and classic cars & motorbikes, live shows and static displays throughout the day, as well as trade stands, children’s entertainment and a food village, the entire family is provided for.

3. Take to the skies with a Hot Air Balloon flight from Exeter or Tiverton with Aerosaurus Balloons. Take an unforgettable flight over the beautiful Devon countryside and landing with a champagne reception. What a great way to treat Dad this Father’s Day!

Flights from Exeter, Tiverton and the South West are available on request – call the booking office to enquire 01404 823102.

4. Head down to the pub for a pie and pint with your Dad to escape the rush! The Mill on the Exe is a spectacular pub in a beautiful location. With tranquil waterside gardens next to Blackaller Weir and the Millstone footbridge, it’s easy to forget that the pub is only a stone’s throw away from the bustle of Exeter city centre.

5. For wildlife enthusiasts join the RSPB for a walk around the stunning Labrador Bay, enjoy the sea views of the south west coast path and keep your eyes peeled for gannets!
