Davidstow Airfield & Cornwall At War Museum

Reviewed By Rachel A

We visited today as a family of 5. We paid £13 entry fee for 2 x adults and 3 x children (aged 12, 4 and 3).
What a surprise! The welcome was great. We were saluted as we entered the car park! The children loved it!! The volunteers were knowledgable and helpful. The museum was full of things that the children could touch as well as look at. We counted guns and animals on the way round too. We enjoyed a coffee and mid morning treat in the NAAFI popping our money in the honesty box. It was like stepping back in time! We will be back

Davidstow Moor RAF Memorial Museum

Reviewed By Julie B

We spent such an interesting afternoon at this lovely friendly museum after stumbling across it one wild and rainy day of our holiday. We were shown around the museum by a very interesting gentleman who recalled lots of stories about the artefacts. The two ladies at the entrance door were equally as helpful and friendly. We walked around with our two little dogs and there were a number of wheelchair visitors who were all made so welcome. The parking is free with no entrance charge just a donation. The museum is run entirely on donations and volunteers. We intend to return again next year.

King Arthur's Great Halls

Reviewed By Sally R

What a serendipitous find! Beyond an ordinary exterior that promises just another well placed house and shop frontage one finds a treasure trove of 72 Arts and Crafts stained glass panels, 6 of which are possibly the most stunning I have ever seen outside of an ecclesiastical building. The stained glass workshop my partner and I have promised ourselves is now a must but oh! to have the skills of the wonderful Pre-Raphaelite influences that inspired the hand of Ms.V.Whall. A must see visit if staying in Tintagel.

Boscastle - South West Coast Path walk

This 3.6 mile moderate walk follows part of the South West Coast Path from Boscastle along the cliffs bordering the ancient fields of Forrabury, before heading inland through Minster Wood,and then along the Valency Valley. In 2004 these steep-sided Valleys funnelled 440 million gallons of water through Boscastle village in 5 hours, causing devastating flooding.

Rocky Valley

Reviewed By Steve C

I've visited here many times from holidays with parents when I was young to asking my wife to marry me at the end of the valley.
It's a beautiful walk through a narrow, rocky valley (the name is a clue) with some ruined buildings with interesting rock carvings (I want one of them as a tattoo).
Great walk, a bit short, no more than an hour round trip. Not good for less fit people.

A walk along the harbour paths to the entrance. The day had a howling gale and upon entering the rocks past the harbour entrance it was a great sight to see the waves crashing in. Felt quite safe and didn't find the rocks slippy. All depends on the footwear !

Crowdy Reservoir

Reviewed By Edna G - Camelford, United Kingdom

I love Crowdy Reservoir. There are plenty of animals around to watch enjoying a natural environment. Always plenty of waterbirds. It is large enough to feel like you are at one with nature. Take a picnic and a camera. Only thing to watch out for is animal droppings though it is not too much of a problem. Ideal place to go when you want to chill out and save the pennies. Recommended!

Port Isaac and Portwenn, Walk & Talk Guided Tours

Reviewed By Nigel C C - London, United Kingdom

May Contain Nuts!!! no that's not the crowd participating in the walking tour of Doc Martin locations in Port Isaac, but the meeting point for the start of the tour. We arrived outside 'May Contain Nuts' at about 10.50am and waited for the arrival of our tour guide Mike Meakins. Mike has participated as an extra in the filming of both Doc Martin and Poldark, another series filmed in and around Port Isaac and Port Quin. It's an interesting walk around the village visiting the well known spots featured in the Doc Martin series, Louisa's house, the restaurant owned and run by the hapless Bert, the quaint cottage of Ruth Ellingham located just across from the infamous 'squeeze belly alley' used as an escape route by Smugglers escaping the clutches of the customs men a few centuries ago. The Pharmacy run by the bonkers Mrs Tishell played by the wonderful Selina Cadel. You'll see familiar sights patrolled by the local calamitous Pc Penhale and of course the iconic surgery which has featured in every episode of Doc Martin and the lane down which the local girls pass the doc and who Inveriably pass some caustic comment. Mike makes the tour interesting, sharing some of the in jokes that we the public would not normally be privy to and he explains some of the difficulties the film crew and cast have to overcome to bring this entertaining and truly humorous series to our screens. A good value walking tour at a tenner? you bet, I would say that a miander with Mike is not to be missed.
