Time to finalize NORTH Cornwall drive week

I've reworked this mid May schedule and know presenting an agenda in this fashion is not appealing to some. Yet I've gotten much excellent feedback using this approach in numerous settings. Please avoid anything headed essentially toward South Cornwall including either coast, as we've historically enjoyed lengthy trips in other parts of a much beloved SW England.

For those disinclined to engage the format as presented, please simply ignore and move on. For others more willing to throw in positively constructed itinerary feedback, including any additions, alternatives, criticism regarding specific daily agendas presented below, your efforts are so appreciated.

We've been numerous times to the south of Cornwall visiting virtually anything major and more as well as a little up north (Boscastle, Tintigal save the castle this time Bodmin Peninsula save the jail this time). We're mostly avoiding larger settings in this more leisurely week, set up thus far as presented below following long drive from Biddenden, Kent on Day 1. Each stop is presented in order of appearance on our daily map cycles. Note we have EH and Nat Trust memberships if anything particularly worthwhile's been missed.

DAY 2 Polzeath (base start and return Days 2 - 7) Davidstow Eng Heritage/ Crackington Haven/ (Bude is almost definitely out at this point as mostly yet another big beach town)/ Bocastle (delightfully been already so (may or) may not just stop here/ pretty/ Trevalga/ Trethevy/ Tintigal exclusively or most for the English Heritage castle having been
51miles consensus sources suggest about two hours drive time - shorter w/o Bude addition

Day 3 **Polzeath Day 3 LAUNcestnEH Cstl (Bleventor done previously )/ Bodmin Moor less involvedly as done before/GOlithaFalls as was TrethevyQuoit Done before)/Liskeard currently out as less than compelling/Blisland Inn(a revisit for delightful pub meal)/ Lanhydrock NT/ Bodmin for JAIL(closed last visit to town) 74 mi 2 1/2 hours +

Day 4 Pencarrow House/ Lostwithiel/ Restormel Castle EH/ Lanhydrock House & Church/ St Mabyn 45.3 mi about 2 hours

Day 5 Padstow (Pop19,500 a "biggie" inclusion rule exception at this point)/ St Eval/ NTBedruthianSteps / St Merryn/ Wadebridge for all today or in part as we have options for what's close being including on our free local day ) 47.1 mi about two hours

Day 6 Day 6 HALF DAY Port Quin (a quick redo from the past)/ Port Isaac/ Wadebridge 22.5 mi about an hour +

Day 7 free local for what's been missed or undone and proximate before heading next to Devon repeat & new in the morning.

All good things~
