1 London – Wells – Dartmoor National Park
From London, we’ll set off on our adventure. Our first stop is the tiny market city of Wells, known for its Gothic cathedral and peaceful Vicars’ Close. From Wells, our path will take us from the quaint country lanes of Somerset to the heather and gorse-clad tors of Dartmoor National Park. Tonight, we’ll enjoy a welcome dinner together. (D)
2 Dartmoor National Park – Port Isaac – Padstow – Falmouth
Today we’ll leave Dartmoor for Cornwall’s northern coast – starting with a stroll around Port Isaac, the fishing village made famous by the Doc Martin television series. Next, we’ll enjoy a leisurely lunch at The Seafood Restaurant – Rick Stein’s flagship restaurant in Padstow. Here, you can take your pick from a menu of fresh-off-the-boat Cornish seafood and international favourites. Afterwards, it's time to take it easy as we travel further west to Falmouth. (B/L)
3 Falmouth – St Michael's Mount – St Ives – Falmouth
After a hearty breakfast we’ll set off for St Michael’s Mount, a tidal island just off the coast of Penzance. In the buzzing village, we’ll witness life through the eyes of the islanders. There’s also time to explore the medieval castle and gardens, which are brimming with treasures and stories from the past. Next, we’ll visit St Ives, one of England’s prettiest towns, before moving on to Falmouth, where you can enjoy the evening at your leisure. (B/D) 
4 Falmouth – Tregothnan – Fowey
There’s a treat for the green-fingered today: we’re off to explore Tregothnan, Cornwall’s largest estate and the historic seat of the Boscawen family. A member of the gardening team will give us a private tour of the grounds and the tea plantation, where we’ll learn all about the only tea grown in England. You’ll even get the chance to sample some local produce. Afterwards, we’ll make our way to Fowey, a historic town that hugs the steep banks of the Fowey Estuary, before settling into our hotel and enjoying dinner. (B/D)
5 Fowey
We have no set plans today, leaving you free to explore Fowey at your leisure. (B)
6 Fowey – Lyme Regis – Hawkchurch
Today we’ll make our way along the south Cornish coast with a stop at the fishing village of Polperro before leaving the countryside behind us. After visiting magnificent Buckfast Abbey in south Devon, our road will take us to Dorset, stopping at Lyme Regis – where you can walk in the footsteps of Jane Austen’s heroines. We’ll take in the sweeping views of the Jurassic Coast before we end in Hawkchurch and enjoy a farewell dinner together. (B/D)
7 Hawkchurch – Salisbury – London
Our last scenic jaunt takes us along the Old Roman Road to Salisbury, a city set in a landscape of grassy plains and rolling downs. From a town steeped in history to a modern metropolis, we’ll then head back to London, where our tour ends. (B)

7 Day Corners of Cornwall reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

“A trip that didn’t quite live up to expectations”
- ACT, Australia Oct 2018 7 Helpful Votes View Photo

This was my second trip with Back-Roads - and, while good, it didn’t match the highlights of the Highlights of Britain tour. Group size of about 15, visits to key places on itinerary were good, though impacted by poor weather (no visit to St Michael’s Mount). The highlights were the visit to Tregothnan Estate and Polperro and lunch in Padstow. ...read more

“Corners of Cornwall”
- NSW , Australia Sep 2018 5 Helpful Votes

We did enjoy the tour. The group of travellers were all Aussies. This made for good interaction. However, it could have been pleasant with one or two Kiwis to taunt or North Americans to confuse. We were the only couple to comply with the operator's baggage limit. Our smaller bags were on occasion squeezed in, causing some concern when one of our bags was turned upside down. We were pleased with the operator's coach leader and our very competent driver. Eighteen travellers we thought was two too...read more

“Excellent trip”
- NSW, Australia Sep 2017 6 Helpful Votes View Photo

The whole trip was excellent. We liked our tour guide James and driver Kern. They are both professionals. The accommodation was mostly great, also the food. Cornwall was at its beautiful best and only a little rain on one day. Thank you for a good trip.

“Interesting trip with sensational tour guide”
- Vic, Australia Jun 2017 6 Helpful Votes View Photo

We had an excellent trip with Back Roads. This company provides a driver as well as a tour guide now with each tour. Our tour guide Nic was fantastic with his knowledge of history and his interesting commentaries. Our driver, Tibor was skillful and helpful. The itinerary included a lot of variety and some extra "hidden gems" such as the open air Minack theatre near Penzeance. The accommodation was very good and the hotel at Fowey was outstanding for its quality and location. We would recommend...read more

“'Corners of Cornwall' lived up to its name!”
- VIC, Australia Sep 2015 4 Helpful Votes

'Corners of Cornwall' lived up to its name! The trip did get 'off the beaten track' where possible and I was able to visit the local little villages and walk on tracks and beaches. Having a driver and tour leader was fantastic as each role could enable 'tag team' where parking was an issue. Both Jeremy and Denis were excellent guides and shared their love of the country.
