Live like lords and ladies on our six sumptuous nights at Pentillie, reserved exclusively for The Wayfarers. The elegantly restored Pentillie Castle (built 1698) on the banks of the Tamar River (which forms the border between Devon and Cornwall) provides a springboard for visiting the pick of the best features in both counties. The week encompasses a tour of historic Plymouth (Pilgrim Fathers, Spanish Armada), coastal walking, wild walking on atmospheric Dartmoor (home of the Hound of the Baskervilles) and a visit to a former home of Sir Francis Drake. Gentler coastal estates include Tudor Cotehele with its own quay and stewpond, and Mount Edgcumbe with its Grade I Cornish gardens. A highlight of the week is the chance to visit some of the key locations on Dartmoor used in the filming of Steven Spielberg's adaptation of War Horse including the Narracott farmhouse and the field where Joey learned to plow.
