Clovelly & Bude
We spend the morning in picturesque fishing village, Clovelly. This charming place, which overlooks Bideford Bay, has had no motorised vehicle access since the 1920s; instead, we will encounter the resident donkeys and the sledges used for transportation while we wander the cobbled pedestrian streets. After lunch, we have free time in seaside resort, Bude. With its wild coastline and gorgeous beaches, a coastal stroll is a fine choice here, perhaps accompanied by a traditional Cornish cream tea or Cornish ice cream.
Boscastle & Tintagel
We continue our exploration of quaint Cornish fishing villages this morning with a visit to Boscastle. We will have time to explore the historic harbour, which, more than 100 years ago, was the only feasible place for a harbour along 40 miles of Cornwall's craggy north coast. While in the afternoon, we have free time in Tintagel, where the renowned Tintagel Castle, which is entwined with the legend of King Arthur, is situated. (Please note: visiting Tintagel Castle itself is not advised for any passengers with limited mobility and not included in tour cost)
Lanhydrock House & Garden & Padstow
This morning we make our way to the magnificent Lanhydrock House & Garden. Get to grips with the two sides of Victorian life, from the kitchens, nurseries and servants' quarters, to the luxurious family areas, featuring an elegant dining room and spacious bedrooms. Outside, amble around the extensive gardens with fabulous bedding plants and gorgeous blooms. After time for lunch, we move to Padstow for the afternoon to roam around the charming fishing port and famous foodie destination - Rick Stein opened his first seafood restaurant here in 1975.
After breakfast, we make our way home.
