We depart and make our way to
Plymouth where we enjoy the next 4 nights with
dinner, bed and breakfast


Our first visit is to the Grade II listed
port of Charlestown, featured in TV’s popular
drama series ‘Poldark’. The harbour was built in
the 18th century to support the china clay and
copper mining industries and we visit the
Shipwreck, Rescue and Heritage Centre. Later we
travel to Mevagissey with its picturesque
harbour and narrow streets with free time to
obtain lunch. This afternoon we make our way
to the Lost Gardens of Heligan, created over a
200 year period, rediscovered and restored over
the last 20 years.


The morning is free for you to
explore the historic city of Plymouth by ‘taking’
a stroll around the famous Hoe, visit the
Mayflower Steps, adjcent to the Barbican Centre
or browse around the city centre shops. In the
afternoon we have an included boat trip around
the harbour and naval dockyards.


For our final day we drive to rugged
Bodmin Moor and stop at the Jamaica Inn with
its Daphne Du Maurier associations and a
museum filled with smuggling artefacts
collected over many years. From here we
visit Padstow which has become a familiar
sight on TV in recent years as the home of
the popular chef, Rick Stein.


After breakfast we depart and head for home.
