Explore some of the historic Castles, Houses and Gardens to be found in Cornwall


Cornwall has many historic and beautiful castles and great houses, as well as many famous gardens. This tour is designed to let you visit and explore a number of these locations. I formerly worked for the National Trust and am able to give you a fully guided experience around the various sites. I will pick you up from your hotel, cruise ship or location of your choice from where we will head to our first location. We will spend the morning exploring your chosen location and learning about it's history before lunch - a luxury Cornish picnic hamper filled with local produce including a bottle of award winning Camel Valley Brut, sandwiches and a cream tea from Baker Tom's Bread & a selection of local cheeses is included. We will then head for the second location of your choice for the afternoon. I will then return you to your start point. Depending on locations chosen it may be possible to visit 3 venues in a day.
Some properties are only open at certain times - please ask when booking.
