Clovelly & Bude
We spend the morning in picturesque Clovelly. This charming fishing village, which overlooks Bideford Bay, has had no motorised vehicle access since the 1920s. Whilst we wander the cobbled pedestrian streets, we’ll meet the resident donkeys and sledges used for transportation. After lunch, we enjoy free time in seaside resort, Bude. With its wild coastline and pristine beaches, a coastal stroll is a wonderful choice here, perhaps accompanied by a traditional Cornish cream tea or Cornish ice cream. Back at the hotel, dinner awaits.
Boscastle & Tintagel
We continue our exploration of quaint Cornish fishing villages this morning with a visit to Boscastle. We take time to explore the historic harbour, which at one point was the only harbour along 40 miles of Cornwall's craggy north coast. This afternoon, we have free time in Tintagel, so you may wish to see the beautiful medieval Tintagel Castle, which is entwined with the legend of King Arthur. (Please note: visiting Tintagel Castle itself is not advised for any passengers with limited mobility and not included in the tour cost.)
Lanhydrock House & Garden & Padstow
This morning we make our way to the magnificent Lanhydrock House & Garden. We explore the 'upstairs and downstairs' of Victorian life, from the servants' quarters, to the luxurious elegant dining room and living areas. Outside, we stroll around the extensive gardens with fabulous blooms. After lunch, we move on to Padstow for the afternoon and roam around the charming fishing port. You may know Padstow as a famous foodie destination – indeed Rick Stein opened his first seafood restaurant here in 1975. We’ll have our own dinner later tonight at the hotel.
After breakfast, we make our way home.
