Very Special Tours of Cornwall

for one person on their own, up to eight people

Tour Four

Port Isaac (Port Wenn in TV series 'Doc Martin'!), Tintagel, King Arthur's Castle and the wild North Coast.

The Legend of King Arthur continues to fascinate and attract people from all over the world.

At Tintagel, the evocative remains of a Norman castle conjure spirits of Knights in Shining Armour, Ladies wearing floor length dresses and pointed hats - with a colourful swatch hanging from the top - (and perhaps imprisoned in loft garrets and in obvious distress).

And these ruins are built on the foundations of a much earlier stronghold occupied by a Cornish King. Small fishing villages inhabit sheltered inlets all along this rugged, inhospitable coastline, with spectacular views everywhere including Port Isaac (aka Port Wenn in the Doc Martin TV series).

Pentire, Newquay

Pentire Newquay

We start our tour at Pentire Head, Newquay, where we see beautiful beaches, wild cliffs, and crashing waves (when stormy). We take a good look at Crantock beach, Fistral Beach (where the surfer is king), the Headland, Town Beach, Tolcarne and all of Newquay's famous coast line.

Padstow

Padstow Harbour

On up the coast towards Padstow, Port Isaac (Port Wenn) and Tintagel going through Porth, Watergate Bay, Mawgan Porth, Bedruthan Steps, and visiting Treyarnon en route.

Port Isaac

Port Isaac

Through Wadebridge and on to Port Isaac (Port Wenn in the TV series 'Doc Martin')

Tintagel

Tintagel

Legendary Home of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table - where they were all equal around that table! (the real life tale of William Marshall ... the most famous Knight of all time ... is most interesting and there are obvious parallels).

In any event, the site of his castle is certainly impregnable on three sides - and the fourth side would have looked a bit intimidating to a would-be attacker. Take the Landrover vehicle down to the castle to save your legs - and again on the return.

Boscastle

Boscastle

On now to Boscastle (where there is a witches museum) and through lovely wooded valleys through Lesnewth.

Boscastle and the steep, wooded valleys

Jamaica Inn

..... perhaps visiting Dozmary pool, where King Arthur's famous sword 'Excalibur' last saw the light of day before sinking below the water, Temple Church (Knights Templar site) - possibly Lanhydrock House - Roche Rock - Castle-an-Dinas and HOME!
