Well worth the time to slowly drive around the valley and experience the various wineries. Some excellent spots to spend a lazy afternoon.

Loved it all, wanted to stay longer. We saw some fantastic sights. Ran out of time to see the museum and brewery, which was a disappointment but it gives us an excuse to return.

A never to be forgotten exploration of the prettiest valley and little hamlets. Not many coffee shops or cafes but the Rosevears Tavern is the BEST place for lunch or Dinner. Take your camera. The shots are breath taking. I love this part of the world.

We drove ourselves through the beautiful picturesque Tamar valley. You follow signs to the vineyards which are lovely. The only downside is a lot are by appointment so pick up a brochure so you don't get caught out.

The second day we visited... More

So much to see and do in this area! It is so picturesque, and lots of different wineries to visit, although check beforehand that they're not closed (on certain days/in certain periods during the year). Make sure you visit the Tamar Valley Art Shack!
