Taste of Cornwall
Start your tour in the tiny fishing village of Port Isaac, home to the famous Fisherman’s Friends and the setting for TV series ‘Doc Martin’. Search out a local guide to point out the most notable filming spots in the area before sampling the culinary offerings at one of the villages restaurants that include Nathan Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen.
Day One Continued:
Next stop is Bedruthan Steps, a stretch of coastline with huge granite stacks, which, if legends are to be believed, were the stepping-stones for the Giant Bedruthan. Take a gentle walk along this stunning swathe of coast, which is always best viewed when the tide's out.
Spend this evening at the iconic Watergate Bay Hotel. Overlooking a vast sandy beach, only a two minute stroll across from the hotel, perfect for dining this evening and for catching the sun as it sets over the ocean.
This morning we journey up to pretty Padstow, home to some of Cornwall’s top eateries. For those with a thirst for knowledge, time can be spent honing culinary skills at celebrity chef Rick Stein’s cookery school, before enjoying your handiwork.
Others may prefer to just wander around the harbour before lunch in any of the other places to eat, there's plenty to choose from.
Day Two Continued:
From Padstow, journey inland towards Bodmin and the gorgeous Camel Valley Vineyard, Cornwall’s largest vineyard and producer of award-winning rose, white and sparkling wines.
Go on a tour of the vineyard and enjoy tasting the wines afterwards, but don't drink too much, you need to head to the south coast for your overnight stay and evening meal in the historic port of Charlestown.
This morning can be spent touring the St. Austell Brewery Visitor Centre, one of the oldest businesses in Cornwall.
Knowledgeable guides lead you on a tour around this award-winning visitor centre, culminating in a tasting session of their latest beers and favourite ales.
Experience a traditional pub lunch before venturing to the gorgeous Lost Gardens of Heligan. One of the most popular botanical gardens in the UK, these fully restored gardens are over 200 acres in size and offer hours of exploring, with fantastic views around every corner.
Spend this evening perched on the tranquil south Cornish coast at a stately hotel with stunning views out to sea.
After breakfast set out for a gentle foraging walk along the local coast, discovering the wide variety of bounty available as you go. Pluck fresh produce and then enjoy watching as they are turned into a freshly prepared meal, all whilst delighting in the beautiful scenery that makes the Roseland peninsula so very special.
There will be the opportunity this afternoon to explore the county on two wheels with a bike tour, or a walking excursion for those who prefer. Both offer a fantastic way to step off the beaten track and sight see from a different perspective.
Enjoy a well earned late lunch before departing the county.
