Your Tour Itinerary - Corners of Cornwall

Day 1 London – Wells – Dartmoor National Park

From London, we set off on our adventure where our first stop is the tiny market city of Wells, known for its Gothic cathedral with a quirky clock and peaceful Vicar’s Close. From Wells, our path takes us from the quaint country lanes of Somerset to the heather and gorse-clad tors of Dartmoor National Park. Before the day is out, enjoy a welcome dinner together. (D)

Day 2 Dartmoor National Park – Padstow – Falmouth

Today we leave Dartmoor for the sheer cliffs of Cornwall’s northern coast – a gourmet feast set firmly in our sights. For an appetiser, there’s a stroll around Port Isaac, the fishing village made famous by television series, Doc Martin. Next, it’s onwards to the main course: a leisurely lunch at 'The Seafood Restaurant’ – Rick Stein’s flagship restaurant in Padstow. Pick from a menu of fresh-off-the-boat Cornish seafood and international favourites such as Atlantic Crab. Then it's time to take it easy as we travel further west to Falmouth, where our day ends. (B,L)

Day 3 Falmouth – St Michael’s Mount – St Ives - Falmouth

After a hearty breakfast, we drive to St Michael’s Mount, a tidal island just off the coast from Penzance. Stepping ashore in the buzzing village, we witness life through the eyes of the islanders and explore the medieval castle, brimming with treasures and stories from the past. Next, we visit one of England’s prettiest towns, St Ives before we end our day in Falmouth where you can enjoy your evening at leisure. (B)

Day 4 Falmouth - Tregothnan - Fowey

There’s a treat for the green-fingered as we set off to explore Tregothnan – Cornwall’s largest  state and the historic seat of the Boscawen family. A member of the gardening team gives us a private tour of the grounds and the tea plantation, where we learn all about tea grown in England. We then make our way to Fowey, a historic town that hugs the steep banks of the Fowey estuary, before settling into our hotel and enjoying dinner.(B,D)

Day 5 Fowey

We have no set plans today, leaving you free to explore Fowey at your leisure. (B)

Day 6 Fowey – Lyme Regis - Hawkchurch

Leaving Fowey, we make our way along the south Cornish coast, with a stop at Polperro fishing village before we leave the county behind us. After visiting magnificent Buckfast Abbey in south Devon, our road takes us via the green hills and golden sandstone cliffs of Dorset, before continuing to Lyme Regis where we walk in the footsteps of Jane Austen’s heroines. Tonight we hang up our hats in Hawkchurch for a farewell dinner together. (B,D)

Day 7 Hawkchurch – Salisbury – London

The adventure isn’t over just yet. Our last scenic jaunt takes us along the Old Roman road to Salisbury, set in an ancient landscape of grass plains and rolling downs. From a town steeped in history to a modern metropolis, we arrive back in London, where our tour ends. (B)

Why Back-Roads Touring

Mini-Coaches

On the vast majority of tours we travel by Mercedes or Mercedes Vito mini-coaches, equipped with comfortable seats, air-conditioning and large windows for enjoying the view. With the flexibility to go anywhere a car can, we take the smaller roads through beautiful scenery and get right to the heart of tiny villages and buzzing cities.
Along the way, your Tour Leader can offer intriguing insights about the views we see over the onboard PA system. And, with long drives kept to a minimum, you’ll have plenty of time to stretch your legs and explore sites for yourself.

Scenic back roads not motorways

Winding country lanes. Coastal beauty spots. Breathtaking mountain passes. With luxury mini-coaches that take us along scenic roads beyond the reach of large vehicles, the journey is as much a part of the adventure as the destination.

Authentic Local Experiences

Truly getting to know a destination means stepping off the typical tourist trail. From hidden-gem attractions to local favourites, we take time to seek out genuine experiences that take you to the heart of each spectacular region.

Culinary Discoveries

One of the most enjoyable ways to experience a different culture is to sample the cuisine. From visits to local producers to food and wine tastings and even cooking lessons, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to discover new flavours.

Boutique Hotels

Whether it’s a classic country inn or an elegant chateau, each day’s journey ends in a hotel with plenty of character. We opt for accommodation that reflects the personality of the local area, and fits right in with its surroundings.

Leisurely Paced Travel

Forget sunrise starts and long days hopping on and off the bus. We rarely leave before 8.30am and give each stop the attention it deserves – keeping long drives to a minimum. And giving you plenty of time to explore at your own pace.
