Scenic South Tour
Harbours, Rocky Coves & Light House
A beautiful harbour and fishing town and popular food hotspot, with the Porthleven food festival taking place each year in April. We will wander the streets in this harbour of refuge, so named due to this part of the coastline being a ‘black spot’ for shipwrecks.
The cove provided the set location for the great shipwreck in the Poldark series. Upon this beach rests a small 14th-century chapel, one of the oldest in the Duchy, known as ‘The Church of Storms’ due to its precarious location close to the water’s edge.
The Hazelphron Inn is a tranquil Cornish pub which dates back over 500 years, with far-reaching views over Mounts Bay.
Another stunning harbour town but with a unique visitor attraction the Mullion Chocolate Factory and Craft Centre. Here we can see the chocolate being made and sample the work of these talented chocolatiers. An art gallery, a glass blowing workshop and a homemade, honey-based cosmetic shop are all here to peruse after.
The only lighthouse that can be climbed in Cornwall. It has guided ships for 260 years and will lead our South West Coast Path walk to Kynance Cove.
One of the most photographed places in Cornwall, where we enjoy our Cornish Cream Tea Picnic, overlooking its rocky outcrops.
