'Door to door'
Our tour is based in St. Agnes a picturesque village on the north coast of Cornwall, nestled in the lee of an impressive landmark which dominates the skyline of the beautiful and dramatic Atlantic coast.
Steeped in mining history, the village still retains a traditional friendly Cornish atmosphere.
Prideaux Place (June Tour) ~ Living history on the beautiful North Cornish coast. Since its completion in 1592 the same family have lived in this charming Elizabethan Manor. Like the real family home it is, Prideaux Place is an engaging mixture of different periods and pieces. Exquisite Italian paintings jostle with family portraits and photographs, porcelain and antiques sit unselfconsciously next to comfortable furniture and assorted Prideaux-Brune memorabilia, every one of which evokes a nostalgic anecdote. While here we also take time to enjoy the gardens, look out for the classical temple, obelisk, a grotto and an exedra, a small stone arbour housing funerary urns whose inscriptions date back to 50AD. We also enjoy an included cream tea.
Falmouth (Februay, March, June & November Tours) ~ Based around a thriving harbour Falmouth is the gateway to the beautiful Fal River. Falmouth’s maritime heritage and coastal culture is a huge part of its charm.
Padstow (All Dates) ~ A charming working fishing port and foodie destination surrounded by glorious sandy beaches, at the head of the Camel River.
St. Ives (All Dates) ~ Attracting artists for decades St. Ives is a seemingly subtropical oasis where the beaches are golden, the vegetation is lush and the light piercingly bright! There are art galleries to discover, relax with a drink at a pavement café, a working harbour and one of Cornwall’s top destinations to visit.
Looe & Polperro (June & August Tours) ~ Looe is a lovely seaside town whilst still retaining a working fishing port. In Polperro it is easy to step back in time to what is largely an unspoilt fishing village where the small harbour offers spectacular views of land and sea.
This elegant 3-star standard hotel is set in over 4 acres of secluded gardens and woodlands and yet only a hundred yards from the main street in the quaint village of St. Agnes.
The Queen Ann style hotel is family run and has been tastefully extended and converted. All the bedrooms have private facilities with colour TV, telephone, hairdryer and tea/coffee makers.
The hotel offers a Restaurant, Lounge, Bar, entertainment and outdoor swimming pool. Sorry no lift.
