  • Most accommodation in Britain is charged on a Per Person basis (rather than per room basis). The price you see here for this tour is the Price per Person.
  • If you request a Twin Room there are two single beds (usually 3 feet wide) in the room.
  • If you request a Double Room there is one bed in which two people usually sleep (usually 4 feet 6inches wide).
  • Both the Double and the the Twin room are sometimes available for Single Occupancy (one person in the room), usually with a supplement to compensate the provider who would normally have received payment from two people.
  • If the accommodation offers Single rooms (one bed of 3 feet wide), this will normally be priced higher than half of a double or twin room. Unless space is limited in the village or accommodation we usually avoid these as the rooms tend to be older and less space to move about.

Tour description

A single centre, self-guided walking in England tour at Land's End, Cornwall. 3 nights bed and breakfast in en-suite accommodation, 2 days walking, maps, transfer from Penzance rail station and return and to from walks where required.

This Explore Britain walking tour in the South West peninsula of England is based on the coast near Lands End, Cornwall. Here is presented on its coast some of the finest cliff-scenery and walking in England, while the interior abounds in ancient monuments. In between the cliffs lie hidden sandy coves and tiny hamlets such as Zennor and Morvah, which seem to grow organically out of the rocky landscape. You end your Cornwall coast journey by crossing Whitesand Bay to pretty Sennen Cove and walking gently along the cliff top to Lands End itself. Here you can dream about doing the ultimate hike - Lands End to John o'Groats - you've already done some of it. Your final day spent walking in Cornwall is from Pendeen to St Just through a diverse landscape of industrial archaeology from the tin mining days to the incredible beauty of watching Atlantic waves re-shaping the coast of Cornwall.

We provide notes for two walking days, but if you have the use of a car, you could spend from dawn to dusk discovering many of Cornwall's ancient monuments "littered" through this landscape, as well as visiting St Ives and perhaps taking a boat or plane out to the nearby Scilly Isles.

Cornwall's mild climate ensures that this rural walking break can be done at any time of the year, while remaining not too hot for summer walking.

You stop in a country hotel perched on the cliffs on Cape Cornwall, where accommodation is available in twin, double or single rooms, all with private facilities.

Advantages of a Single Centre Tour (staying in one place).

  • No need to unpack and pack your bags every day.
  • You are not walking because you have to get to the next place that is booked for that day.
  • If you feeling tired or not up-to walking - fine take the day off and enjoy where you are.
  • You have more time to build up a talking relationship with the guesthouse owners or people staying at the accommodation.
  • Handy if you would want to plan to meet up with somebody whilst visiting Britain.
  • Normally you are allocated a better room than single-night stay customers.

This is Jennifer who went from Upway to Bournemouth last month on a walking tour with her nephew. I just want to thank you for a fantastic vacation. Everything was perfect!

Our favorite places were Upway at the Manor House. Helen and her husband were so gracious and absolutely on top of everything. She made our lunches for hiking and did our laundry. She and her husband picked us up everywhere as scheduled. Our room was fine and the breakfast room was gorgeous.

Our other favorite place was the Ammonite Guest House in Corfe Castle. What an incredible place! Yvonne made us feel so welcome and breakfast at her table in her dining room was so special to us. We felt like part of a family - not the usual tourist experience.

The maps and other information and tickets you arranged were excellent and made for a trip where we could concentrate on the beautiful sites. They were beautiful, indeed - like a picture postcard!!

I really want to praise the Corfe Castle taxi service and their associates. They were wonderful. You made a good choice in picking them to get your guests around and about.

You may want to warn your guests there are some mean cows on the path to Swanage. Haha!

In short, thank you. You are welcome here in Utah anytime.
