Explore the Prehistoric Landscape and Stone Circles of the Farthest South West Part of Cornwall


Welcome to Kernow (that's Cornish for Cornwall) - an ancient, magic land filled with historic ruins, customs. . and remains!

We offer this tour as a full day option that can be shortened to half a day or extended to two as required. Travel within Cornwall is slow - it's an isolated, rugged region - and several sites require a bit of trek to access, so we may only be able to visit a few sites of your choice within a six hour tour. Please make contact with any questions, suggestions, dates.

Itinerary

Meeting at your port, station or accommodation, we will take a magical journey around one of the wildest and most beautiful parts of the UK. Our pace can be swift or leisurely - as best suits your needs and schedule. . and the weather on the day!

Stops to include gazing upon St Michael's Mount - Karrek Loos yn Koos, meaning "hoar rock in woodland" in Cornish; moving within ancient stone circles such as the Merry Maidens; passing (if we fit!) through the fertility ring of Men an Tol; going underground in the mysterious fogou at Carne Euny; honouring the waters at Sancreed's sacred well.

We'll stop for refreshments whenever and wherever you'd like, perhaps for fish, chips and a pint in a pub more piratical than any you saw, perhaps for elegant dishes in a gastropub named for an ugly local fish, perhaps for a cream tea in a Methodist converted chapel, or perhaps for a good honest Cornish Pasty by Land's End. .

We'll end the day before you tire too much, returning you to your accommodation, port or station.

A Recent Review of this tour

Zoe took us to many "off the beaten track" places that we would never have found ourselves. She was interesting and we had a great day touring with her. You will be in good hands with her guiding the tour!
