London – Wells – Dartmoor National Park

After departing from London, our first stop will be the tiny market city of Wells – known for its Gothic cathedral and peaceful Vicars’ Close.

Tonight, we’ll enjoy a welcome dinner together. Accommodation: Two Bridges Hotel or similar. (D)

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 delicious 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. Then: we’ll take it easy as we travel further west to Falmouth.

St Austell – Anthony Estate – Lyme Regis – Hawkchurch

Today we’ll make our way along the south Cornish coast, stopping at the beautiful Antony Woodland Garden before our road takes us to Dorset.
