Departing Henley-in-Arden we head for Plymouth, arriving at our hotel in time for dinner and our 4-night stay.


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. Here we visit the Shipwreck, Rescue and Heritage Centre, telling the story of the port, ships and wrecks along this part of the coast. We continue to Mevagissey with its maze of narrow streets around the harbour.


The day is free for you to explore the historic city. Take a stroll around the famous Hoe, visit the Barbican Steps and browse around the city centre shops.


We drive to rugged Bodmin Moor and stop at Jamaica Inn. With its Daphne Du Maurier associations and a museum filled with smuggling artefacts collected over many years. From here we travel to the North Cornwall coast and Tintagel with its dramatic castle ruins.


After breakfast we head for home.
