Cornwall, Devon & Somerset

Drive to Land’s End and back to experience breath-taking coastal scenery, fabulous restaurants with treats of local produce, line-caught fish and seasonal vegetable and wander through a variety of English Gardens. Exploring England is easy. In the countryside, the roads are excellent, well signposted and largely toll free. Distances between towns are short and driving is on the left hand side of the road, same as in New Zealand.

Choosing your Rental Car
Take into consideration the size of the vehicle you require. We strongly recommend a minimum 1.4 litre for two adults. If the vehicle is to be used for day touring from a central base and not for transporting your luggage, a smaller vehicle may be adequate. We suggest you book your car before leaving home as this will save money and ensure you get the car of your choice.

Itinerary
Day 1: London – St Austell (335km)
St Austell is a town which in the 18th century prospered from the mining of ‘white gold’. Explore the Holy Trinity Parish Church and the Italianate facade of the Market House in the historic core.
Day 2: St Austell – St Ives – Newquay (117km)
Discover a castle, a sub-tropical garden paradise and a close-knit island community, stride over the causeway or cross by boat, depending on the tide, to reach St Michael’s Mount. As you go to St Ives, visit the village of Penzance and The Minack Theatre, perched on a cliff.
Day 3: Newquay – Padstow – Tintagel – Barnstaple (117km)
Explore parts of this coastline by kayak or walk the Heritage Coastal Path. Visit the lively surf town of Newquay and the fishing port of Padstow, home of Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant. Immerse yourself in history and the legend of King Arthur at Tintagel. After all this activity, a delicate Devon cream tea in Clovelly is just the thing.
Day 4: Barnstaple
Head to Exmoor National Park which is the ideal place to enjoy the outdoors, everything from coasteering to cycling, horse riding to walking the Coleridge Way or riding the vintage West Somerset Railway.
Day 5: Barnstaple – Salisbury (190km)
Today’s highlights will include a steep walk to the top of Glastonbury Tor to admire the stunning views across the Mendip Hills. If it’s mid-week, stop at Wells for the Farmers’ Market before meandering through the Cheddar Gorge made famous by its Somerset cider and Cheddar cheese. Continue to discover more of the South West or make your way back to London.
