Special Interest Breaks
A collection of special holidays to inspire you, based at the Toorak Hotel.
Hosted by professional artist Arnold Lowrey, these holidays will gently lead you into painting, taking you through the basics of good composition, using techniques so you can create a painting of your own. Whether you choose “Winning with Watercolours” or “Actually it’s Acrylics”, Arnold is an expert on both fields. Staying at the Toorak Hotel, the holidays are ideal for beginners and for those who would like to improve their techniques. Non-painting partners are welcome to come and stay and enjoy all of the alternative leisure and entertainment available at TLH.

It’s off to the races on these mid-week breaks at the Toorak Hotel. Your stay includes a session with a professional tipster, a copy of the Racing Times, plus a visit to the races at Exeter. Transport and entry fees are included in the price.
Walking For Pleasure
The emphasis of this break is very much on enjoyment. New for 2013 the break is for a whole week giving you plenty of time to explore the hidden treasures of the English Riviera which hosts Gerald and Margaret Thompson look forward to sharing. Walks are split into “easy” and “more challenging” with coffee stops en route. Good walking shoes or boots are recommended. The break also includes a welcome drinks reception and a final evening social get-together.
Agatha Christie Breaks
The South West's Queen of Crime is the inspiration for these midweek breaks. Included is a vintage bus tour to Greenway House & Gardens, her much beloved holiday home on the banks of the beautiful River Dart and now owned by the National Trust. One of the highlights of these breaks is a Murder Mystery evening when you will get the chance to put your own powers of deduction to the test.
