Lovely trip into the Devon and Cornwall countryside. Hotel accommodations were very good and the guide , Kevin, was outstanding. I liked the freedom and choices for lunches and dinners. There were opportunities for short hikes or to just watch others hike.

Looking forward to another trip on the next England visit.
