Visit Cornwall and Devon and you'll find rugged moorland and beautiful beaches, with cosy villages and harbors nestled in between. St. Ives is home to some of Cornwall's leading tourist attractions, including its own Tate gallery. Seafood lovers should head to Padstow, which boasts a range of internationally renowned seafood restaurants. Our Travel Experts provide personal advice and ensure every Tourlane trip is tailor-made trip from beginning to end.
1. Dartmoor National Park
Start your tour in Wells, a tiny town that’s home to an enormous gothic cathedral. Take a bracing walk over the Dartmoor Tors, windswept hills with boulders at their peaks, before reaching Padstow. Here you can refuel with some of the world’s finest seafood, ranging from monkfish curry to fresh crab. The food is perfectly suited to a glass of Cornish rosé—a surprise addition to your Cornwall trip.
2. St. Ives and Falmouth, Cornwall
Next on your tour of Cornwall is St Michael’s Mount, set above a cobbled path that is submerged at high tide. Drive north to St. Ives, a picturesque town with an international reputation for art, housing a Barbara Hepworth museum and its own Tate gallery. Spend your afternoon at the Viscount of Falmouth’s Tregothnan Estate for a pot of England’s best tea and scones in immaculate gardens—it doesn’t get more English than this.
3. St. Austell, Cornwall
St. Austell is home to one of England’s best beaches, so take the path down from the cliffs and explore the rock pools. Just outside of St. Austell is the Eden Project, a revolutionary ecological experiment that houses a rainforest underneath its geodesic domes. Head back to St. Austell and settle into a cosy pub by the fire, and enjoy tales from the local St. Austell Brewery—they’ll see you through the night.
4. Jurassic Coast, Devon
Drive your way east along the beautiful Jurassic Coast, where dinosaur fossils and rock formations compete to capture your gaze. Finish your Devon and Cornwall tour along a Roman road to Salisbury, home to one of the four original manuscripts of the Magna Carta, admired in its beautiful cathedral. This elegant town is the best place to end your trip across a land of ancient history, homely coziness, and rugged beauty.
