“The Best Way to See Cornwall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2006

We spent two weeks with Mike and Averil Inglefeld at their home, which has three guest rooms in the main city in Cornwall--Truro. In Great Britain, B&Bs are not necessarily posh but clean and comfortable. It is more like spending time with a family you've just met. It was perfect for the three of us (two shared a room and one was by herself).

What makes this B&B special is that Mike Inglefeld provides tours too. So not only was he out host, but he was our tour guide. We started with an overall plan before we ever arrived in the UK through back-and-forth e-mails, but each morning after breakfast we fine-tuned and even changed plans.

Each day we piled in Mike's station wagon and he was our guide to much of Cornwall. We didn't return til early evening most days. Each morning we hiked bluffs or along rivers and saw new country on the way. Since he grew up in Cornwall, Mike had many tales to tell about wherever we went. Each mid-day we stopped at a different pub and tried local foods and brews. Our favorite brew was Bulldog!

Then in the afternoons, we toured lovely historic estakes and gardens and sometimes took another walk. Each day we toured towns and charming villages and had opportunities to shop.

We marveled at the green, green fields of Cornwall and of the historic hedgerows that bordered the fields and narrow country lanes.

The hedgerows are not only beautifu, but fascinating. They are made of stone with multiple plants full of flowers growing so thick you cannot see the stone. And they were often tall, which made it like driving in a two-way, single-lane maze. Fortunatey, Mike was excellent at backing up. Amazing that the cars weren't all banged up in Cornwall! Towns were also full of very narrow lanes. I am so impressed with the Cornish drivers.

With our host being our guide, he was able to show us so much and yet fine tune the trip to best meet our needs as he got to know us better. It was a wonderful way to see the country, and made a trip for us that we will long remember.

There were 3 of us women and we were following a trip that one of us took 30 years ago. We hiked the beautiful Cornwall coast and also some inland hikes and we visited a beautiful garden and home every afternoon. We got to every lovely little town that we have read about in books and also spent two days at the Dauphne du Maurier festival. Our guide, Michael Inglefield, knew the history of the areas we hiked and visited and was able to make the area come alive. He also knew all the best Pubs for lunch every day where we had great food and sampled the local beer.It was also the best way to deal with the very high currency exchange as these meals were large enough to be our dinner and we ended up with tea and light fare in the B&B each evening. His wife, Averil, was very gracious and fixed wonderful breakfasts for us each morning. I would recommend this trip for anyone who would like an active vacation tailored to your fitness level and interests.
