Tour Details

This is my home in Cornwall, Padstow to be precise. I will share with you all my favourite places that I have discovered over the years.

Port Isaac

Starting the day in Port Isaac, we should avoid the busiest part of the day here. Port Isaac has been put on the map internationally by the Doc Martin TV series which portrays Port Isaac as Port Wenn. A small working fishing village with some of the narrowest streets including Squeezy Belly Alley.

We can walk through the streets of Port Isaac and spot the now famous locations used for the popular TV series.

Tintagel

From Port Isaac we will wind our way through neighbouring Port Gaverne on our way to Tintagel.

Tintagel has much to offer, the ruins of Tintagel Castle, along with the legend of King Arthur, a characterful 14th century house used as a post office in years gone by. Not to mention breathtaking views along the rugged north coast from spectacular cliffs.

Boscastle

Just along from Tintagel we will find Boscastle with it’s picturesque harbour at the bottom of a steep valley. The site of a terrible flood in 2004 but now completely restored, we can learn about what happened that day.

There is also the famous museum of magic and witchcraft here for those interested.

Valency Valley and Minster woods in Boscastle is where a young Thomas Hardy courted his first wife Emma.

Padstow

We’ll then take the Atlantic highway to my home town of Padstow where I will show you the best of this historic fishing port. There is much to choose from including Padstow harbour, the Camel Estuary, Prideaux Place Elizabethan house with the same family still living there or the beautiful St Petroc’s Church.

We can stop for lunch half way through the day at a venue to suit your taste and budget. There are many excellent venues in and around Padstow to choose from. Alternatively we are fortunate to have a great choice of old Cornish Inns on this route as well.
