We visited in July 2016. Barry Pengelly, owner and operator of Cornwall Discovery, is a charming, engaging, and attentive host and guide. We arranged for him to pick me up at Newquay Airport and began touring on the way to Port Isaac. I chose to hire Barry for my entire stay in Cornwall, but I know he also offers day trips to pretty much anywhere in Cornwall. For 4 full days, I was treated to the beauty of rugged Cornwall coastlines and idyllic hidden treasures I could not have imagined. Afterward, Barry also drove me to Truro to catch the train back to London. Barry was easy to talk with and has a wonderful sense of humor and first hand knowledge of Port Isaac and Cornwall. I loved the experience of going through small lanes and watching the courteous driving of the locals who reverse and squeeze over on the narrow lanes. (He did also take main roads but some of the best locations are off the beaten path.) Barry is an excellent driver and I felt quite safe and attended to in his charge. There are a lot of hills and steps in Cornwall, so if I felt a site looked too strenuous or steep for me to handle, Barry made accommodations so that I could still enjoy every location. No problem at all. He is so flexible and open to doing whatever he can to make your time in Cornwall enjoyable. He is clearly proud of his heritage and his county and he studies to make sure he provides interesting historical background of the places you are visiting. Barry has first-hand knowledge of cast and crew members of both Doc Martin and Poldark and it was wonderful to visit these beautiful locations. Cornwall is a beautiful place and this type of personalized service is so worthwhile to discover places in addition to the more well known tourist attractions. (We did some of those too!) Let Barry know what your interests are and he can customize your tour to maximize your time and enjoyment. I think it will actually save you money and stress to have Barry take care of the driving! I will never forget this amazing Cornwall adventure! It was my first time abroad and I am so happy that I chose Barry as my guide. You will be too!

Okay, thank you
