Cornwall and Devon: How Many Days? Initial Itinerary Ideas!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning to visit Cornwall and Devon in mid to late October 2010 (probably a little later than ideal but that is when we can go.) We are trying to figure how many days/nights we should plan on. Our starting plan is fly Boston to Heathrow on a flight arriving about 8 PM and spend that night at a hotel at Heathrow. Pick up rental car in the AM and head out. Perhaps spend that night in Wells (we have been to Bath). Then we're thinking sort of circular route gong along the north coast, a few nights in St Ives, perhaps a night in Mousehole and continue along the southern coast spending our last night about an hour or two away from Heathrow where we will have a 3PM flight home.

Including our first and last nights we are thinking a total of ten nights---so we would have eight nights traveling about Devon and Cornwall. Enough time? Our time is flexible so we can add a few more nights if it would be better. We are big fans of coasts, love smaller towns and villages, want to enjoy some of the great walks, good food and a bottle of wine are definite requirements. Do you think we need hotel reservations at that itme of year or could we just meander and see what appeals to us? Any and all thoughts and recommendations--including favorite towns and hotels/B and Bs--gratefully accepted.
