This is a private tour for up to six people. You will be collected from your hotel or other accommodation for the trip to North Cornwall in a luxury Land Rover Discovery. The car tour is available to all but there are some steep hills to negotiate on foot, particularly at Port Isaac. Some elements of the Tintagel tour may not be suitable for all as the castle is only accessible by a narrow high bridge, nevertheless, there are many other sites to see.
You will be collected from your hotel at an agreed time for the drive to Padstow. This bustling fishing port as a great choice of shops in its narrow streets, a busy harbor where you can take a ride on a speedboat and great views of the estuary and beaches from the headland walk. Celebrity Chef Rick Stein has a number of restaurants in the town, plus his own fish and chip shop.
You then take the short drive to Port Isaac. This tiny fishing village has found fame as Port Wenn in the BBC TV series Doc Martin and fans of the show will feel they know the village already. There is an excellent fish restaurant here and it’s also the home of Shanty singers the Fisherman’s Friends who mostly live and work in the village. They often give free concerts on the slipway known as The Platt on a Friday evening but dates vary. You may be able to stay for a concert if the dates fit at additional cost. The village is a delight to see in any event but it’s a pretty stiff climb back up the hill. A shuttle service is available.
Move up the dramatic coast to Tintagel, where a visit to the remains of the 800-year-old castle is a must and you can imagine being a Knight of King Arthur’s Round Table or perhaps being rescued by one! Spectacular is the only description for the coastal scenery in this area. If time you move on to Boscastle a further charming coastal village and maybe time for a cream tea before returning to your hotel.
