Founded by Angus Drummond, who was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy in his early 20s, Limitless Travel is a travel operator run by people with disabilities, for people with disabilities. This means we understand your requirements as a traveller.

Our friendly, specialist advisors will help you to plan and book every aspect of your holiday, tailor-made to meet your needs and personal tastes. Be it a romantic break in Paris, a group getaway in Spain or a luxury coach trip to Scotland – our team will do the hard work, so you don’t have to.

Discover Devon – a five-day tour

Accessible Devon seasideSpend five fabulous days exploring the wonders of the Devonshire countryside, travelling in style and comfort on one of our luxury accessible coaches. Devon offers some of the most beautiful countryside and sea views in the UK and this trip is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the surroundings.

Each area of the county offers something different to explore. In North Devon, you’ll be well placed to visit some of the UK’s best beaches. In South Devon there is a whole host of quaint fishing villages and the popular city of Plymouth. Mid Devon is home to the county’s capital city, Exeter, where you’ll find a rich history coupled with a modern, cosmopolitan feel.

The county is also home to two National Parks – Exmoor and Dartmoor, which includes lots of accessible walks. Other popular areas include the English Riviera, which encompasses the seaside towns Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, and the South Hams, which has a rich maritime heritage. They’re both considered among the best holiday destinations in the country.

Our accessible tour of Devon

All of our coaches are wheelchair accessible, via a lift at the side. The interiors are modern and spacious, so there’s plenty of space for your wheelchair to be clamped into place in the back, removing the need to transfer from your chair to a seat.
