Cornwall in July Trip

Jump to last reply

Am starting a new request. I want to firm up some travel arrangements in the next few weeks. Two Canadian couples flying into London Heathrow from Barcelona July 2013. We plan to drive to Bath and stay there three nights (men will golf; women shop and visit spa and we'll all see the local sights). Have reservations at Marlborough House in Bath.
Then we plan to drive to Cornwall for 5 nights. Would love to visit Clovelly but don't know if that is practical distance wise. Am thinking of staying for two or three nights in or around Padstow (we want to visit Port Isaac). Would like to find a hotel within walking distance to town. Any suggestions? Am also thinking of half a day at the races at Newton Abbot.
For the next two or three nights am in a bit of a quandry. Falmouth has been suggested but it doesn't seem that quaint. We like walking to interesting shops and pubs. I was thinking Penzance but have been reading previous forums where people say it is quite tired looking. Would St. Ives be a better bet? The Isles of Scilly seem interesting but maybe we won't have enough time (and my husband suffers from seasickness but recovers fairly quickly once on terra firma!). Plan to visit Mousehole and maybe St. Mawes. Our last night before our flight out of Heathrow back to Toronto will probably be spent at Windsor (have done that before) unless someone has a better suggestion. Thank you so much!
