Your Tour Itinerary - Corners of Cornwall

Day 1 London – Wells – Dartmoor National Park

From London, we’ll set off on our adventure. Our first stop is the tiny market city of Wells, known for its Gothic cathedral and peaceful Vicars’ Close. From Wells, our path will take us from the quaint country lanes of Somerset to the heather and gorse-clad tors of Dartmoor National Park. Tonight, we’ll enjoy a welcome dinner together. (D)

Day 2 Dartmoor National Park – Port Isaac - Padstow – Falmouth

Today we’ll leave Dartmoor for Cornwall’s northern coast – starting with a stroll around Port Isaac, the fishing village made famous by the Doc Martin television series. Next, we’ll enjoy a leisurely lunch at The Seafood Restaurant – Rick Stein’s flagship restaurant in Padstow. Here, you can take your pick from a menu of fresh-off-the-boat Cornish seafood and international favourites. Afterwards, it’s time to take it easy as we travel further west to Falmouth. (B,L)

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

After a hearty breakfast we’ll set off for St Michael’s Mount, a tidal island just off the coast of Penzance. Here, we’ll explore the village and the medieval castle and gardens which are brimming with treasures and stories from the past. Next, we’ll visit St Ives, one of England’s prettiest towns, before returning to Falmouth. (B,D)

Day 4 Falmouth - Tregothnan - Fowey

There’s a treat for the green-fingered today: we’re off to explore Tregothnan, Cornwall’s largest estate and the historic seat of the Boscawen family. A member of the gardening team will give us a private tour of the grounds and the tea plantation, where we’ll learn all about the only tea grown in England. You’ll even get the chance to sample some local produce. Afterwards, we’ll 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

Today we’ll make our way along the south Cornish coast with a stop at the fishing village of Polperro before leaving the countryside behind us. After visiting magnificent Buckfast Abbey in south Devon, our road will take us to Dorset, stopping at Lyme Regis – where you can walk in the footsteps of Jane Austen’s heroines. We’ll take in the sweeping views of the Jurassic Coast before we end in Hawkchurch and enjoy a farewell dinner together. (B,D)

Day 7 Hawkchurch – Salisbury – London

Our last scenic jaunt takes us along the Old Roman Road to Salisbury, a city set in a landscape of grassy plains and rolling downs. From a town steeped in history to a modern metropolis, we’ll then head back to London, where our tour ends. (B)

This tour can be combined with The Wonders of Wales, Royal Tour of Britain and/or The Emerald Isle.

Why Back-Roads Touring

Smaller groups of up to 18

With a maximum group size of 18 people on Europe tours (22 on French barge tours) and 14 people on Asia tours, Back Roads pride themselves on ensuring that each guest has a personalised holiday experience.


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.

Hand Picked Boutique Accommodation

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.
