Day 3: Mousehole - Porthcurno - Land’s End - St Ives - Falmouth
After a restful night in Falmouth, we’ll make our way to Mousehole where you’ll have a chance to explore this beautiful little fishing village, which has retained its original character and charm. We then continue to Porthcurno and the Minack Theatre - an unforgettable stop, the open-air theatre has breath-taking views of the Atlantic Ocean. We’ll then continue west to Land’s End, England’s most westerly point. You can enjoy a cliff-top walk here and take in the striking views. Our final stop of the day is in St Ives, before we return to Falmouth.
Please note: If Falmouth is exceptionally busy our overnight stay will be in Newquay.
Day 4: Port Isaac - Tintagel - Boscastle - Ilfracombe - Bristol
This morning you’ll say goodbye to Falmouth as we make our way to Port Isaac, the filming location for Doc Martin. Even if you’re not a fan of the show you’ll love this stunning village with its picturesque whitewashed cottages. Next, we visit Tintagel, legendary birthplace of King Arthur and a place to get lost in the myths of the past. Then it’s on to Boscastle for lunch, home to an unspoilt harbour village and the perfect place to enjoy a Cornish pasty! We continue to Ilfracombe for more impressive coastal views. Our overnight stop is Bristol, home to Clifton’s iconic suspension bridge – free to walk and offering stunning views of the Avon Gorge. This bustling city is a perfect overnight stop with numerous restaurants and bars to enjoy in the evening.
Please note: If Bristol is exceptionally busy we may move our overnight stop to the city of Bath.
Day 5: Cotswolds - Oxford - London
Our final day takes us into the Cotswolds, first to Cirencester, the largest town in the Cotswold District. We will also visit some of the smaller Cotswold villages, so you have a chance to immerse yourself in the sleepy beauty of these limestone villages. You’ll spend the afternoon in Oxford, aptly nicknamed the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’ by poet Matthew Arnold. This handsome city is bustling and beautiful yet still holds clusters of tranquillity amongst the 38 colleges that you can explore here. Famous literary figures, such as JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis and Oscar Wilde once walked the cobbled streets here. We’ll enjoy an afternoon here to take in the stunning buildings this city has to offer before we return to London.
