The twin towns of East Looe and West Looe sit either side of the river and form a vibrant and picturesque base for our tour.
Day 1 We pick you up from your door before joining our tour coach to travel across country and into Cornwall, making suitable refreshment stops along the way. We are greeted at our hotel with tea or coffee.
Day 2 A beautiful excursion through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, first to Mevagissey, with narrow streets leading down to the protected harbour. We then visit Fowey on the west side of the Fowey Estuary, an old town packed with medieval and Georgian buildings. A minibus runs from the coach park down to the town (£2.50 round trip).
Day 3 After a leisurely breakfast, we visit Lanhydrock House and Gardens, to discover 50 rooms, including the extensive kitchens, the lives of those in service, and the lives of those living in the Victorian luxury of the family rooms. The garden is packed with rare trees and shrubs, glorious flowerbeds and winding woodland walks.
Day 4 A free day to relax and enjoy Looe, or you could take local transport to Polperro.
Day 5 Our day is spent on the rugged north coast starting with the remarkable new project at Tintagel, where for the first time in 500 years, the two halves of the castle have been reunited with a footbridge. We then have a short visit to Boscastle before returning to our hotel.
Day 6 A half day excursion to Antony, a much-loved early 18th-century house with lovely gardens and sweeping views to the river.
Day 7 We travel homewards with suitable refreshment stops, before reaching the local area early evening.
