First Day We follow the Atlantic Highway through Devon to Cornwall with a lunchtime stop in the Devon town of Bideford.
Tours whilst at Resort
A To the south coast of Cornwall and we visit Falmouth in its beautiful position on the estuary, which is the deepest in Western Europe. On our return we make a short stop in Porthleven, an unspoilt fishing harbour steeped in history.
B We pass through Perranporth and travel along the north coast of Cornwall and after enjoying the scenic coastal drive we make a stop in Padstow. Padstow has a lovely setting by the Camel Estuary where narrow streets lead to the harbour. Later, we visit Truro, the county town of Cornwall.
C We enjoy views of Mount’s Bay, overlooked by the beautiful St Michael’s Mount, before arriving at Land’s End where we make a short stop in this dramatic location. Then the coastal route to St Ives. St Ives is described as the jewel in Cornwall’s crown and has a picturesque fishing harbour.
D We call at Charlestown, a pristine unspoiled example of a Georgian working port. Poldark dock scenes are filmed here. Later we call at Mevagissey, a resort much favoured by artists for its great character.
Last Day We return by a different route and remain in Cornwall with a lunchtime stop in the historic fishing port of Looe, where two rivers create a tidal harbour. The bustling harbour is the hub of the town and home to fishing vessels as well as pleasure craft
