The old smugglers' coves and pirate villages of England's southwest coast blend with rolling countryside and gentle landscapes in this charming corner of the country. Pass through Plymouth and cross the River Tamar to the county of Cornwall.

Pastoral scenery, patchwork, green hedgerows and fine coastal vistas are offered en route to timeless Polperro. This village has a rich fishing heritage and enchanting harbor, fringed by a jumble of whitewashed cottages where smugglers' hauls of exotic cargoes landed in years gone by. Its narrow streets and cellar shops were once crowded with contraband, but are now packed with local pottery and paintings, jewelry and maritime crafts.

Walk into Polperro along the small stream, passing the quaint cottages with neat flower-filled gardens, pubs, shops and cafés. The coach parks at the entrance to the village and you will have free time to enjoy a stroll or sit and watch the world go by in the many cafés and pubs, perhaps tasting a delicious Cornish pasty or Cornish Cream Tea (at your own expense).

End your tour back at the motorcoach, with a scenic drive across the delightful rural landscapes en route towards Plymouth.
