Customized Tours or Itineraries in the West Country
Cornwall and Devon are located at the south-west 'toe' of England. In both these counties you are never far from the coastline. The rugged north coast has been pounded for centuries by the waves of the Atlantic. Here you will find towering cliffs and tiny fishing harbors. By contrast, the south coast is gentler with wooded creeks and river estuaries where you will find sheltered fishing villages and gentle, rolling hills.

The south-west of England has more miles of unspoilt coastline than any other region of England. Inland, the two great National Parks of Exmoor and Dartmoor offer a different perspective with ancient stone 'clapper' bridges, sparkling rivers, heather-clad hills and granite 'tors'.

The climate here in the south-west is milder than elsewhere in Britain. This area benefits from the warming effects of the Gulf Stream with early springs and long summers and a micro-climate along the south coast that is host to a wealth of garden experiences. Visit the 'Eden Project' and the 'Lost Gardens of Heligan' which rank high on the list among the many and varied gardens of Cornwall.

Here too you will discover famous chefs who offer fine food in superb restaurants and traditional inns. Arts and crafts are found in St Ives with 30 other galleries including the Tate. Famous artists and writers such as Barbara Hepworth, Daphne du Maurier and Rosamunde Pilcher have made their homes here, finding inspiration in the luxuriant landscape, attractive fishing villages and historic market towns.

The cities of Exeter & Plymouth are full of history; Packet Ships left from Falmouth to deliver mail to the New World; Camborne and Redruth have a history of tin & lead mining that dates back 2000 years. Wherever you go in this part of England there is an amazing variety of history and tradition to explore.
