FOR OPERATING REASONS WE HAVE DECIDED TO AMEND OUT TIMETABLE FREQUENCIES SLIGHTLY – NOTE THE YELLOW TIMETABLE WILL OPERATE DAILY 1ST AUGUST UNTIL 3RD SEPTEMBER – AND REPLACES THE RED TIMETABLE, MEANING THERE WILL NOW NOT BE AN AXMINSTER OR PECORAMA LINK – WE SINCERELY APOLOGISE FOR THIS.
Welcome to Mendip Mule Motorbus 2017 and, especially for our third season, our extended, enhanced and rebranded sightseeing tour route 124 in East Devon and W Dorset. Now known in the area as The Jurassic Mule we are running on most days across a full 4 month season between 27th May and 28th September and covering the lovely coastal area between Newlands Holidays and Beer, via Charmouth, Lyme Regis, Rousdon, Axmouth and Seaton – with even a chance to add an inclusive discounted trip on the Seaton Tramway (visit www.tram.co.uk). The round trip once again takes 2 hours but includes the chance to hop on/hop off as many times along the way as you please, for an ‘all day’ ticket price. In peak season we have a fleet of 4 heritage open toppers (running as often as every 30 minutes at the busiest times!) waiting to take you on your travels, and on selected days a new link from Axminster Rail Station (connecting with South West Trains from both Exeter & Yeovil directions) offering a full day out on our route, as well as long days out from Colyton on a regular basis, and on 32 dates the chance of a 4 hour visit to Pecorama & Beer Heights Light Railway. We do also offer shorter tour options on selected sections of the route, for those with less time to spare. Please select our seperate JURASSIC MULE page from the menu for full timetables and fares – you simply pay the driver as you board, plus we will be announcing a prepay system via our agents for those particularly wishing to pay by debit/credit card.
Once again we will also be making a special visit to the Isle of Wight with The Mendip Mule herself (TDL 564K) over the weekend of 8th & 9th July. Make sure you take advantage of either the Saturday or Sunday itinerary – or better still make a full Island weekend out of it at a discounted price – as this could very well be the old bus’s last ever visit to her erstwhile home. Check out our separate ISLE OF WIGHT page from the menu for the Saturday ‘bus interest’ day and the Sunday ‘rail interest’ day. Pre booking is strongly advised as demand is expected to be high.
On top of these exciting plans we do have a fair few private hires booked but can still accommodate plenty more. We do have a few premium weekends still available and plenty of high season evenings still spare (we can offer particularly competitive rates in E Devon & W Dorset from 1800 onwards). So come on group organisers – get in touch now for a quote – you will find we offer a very friendly and helpful service and can usually tailor make things to suit your requirements. We also plan to attend a few special events and carnivals during the season. For both PRIVATE HIRE and SPECIAL EVENTS please select the appropriate page from the menu.
Whether you join us on the Jurassic Mule route, the Isle of Wight, a private hire or a special event, all the friendly staff at Team Mule look forward to extending you a warm greeting – see you there!
