There is so much to see in Cornwall, the county is vast, varied and stunning, so it really helps to have local knowledge if you really want to see the treasures of coast and moor.

Barry Pengelly and his company, Cornwall Discovery Tours, are a brilliant way to tour Cornwall. He has the local experience, insight and historical knowledge that makes tours so memorable. You only have to take a look at his Tripadviser page to see that.  His tours are favoured especially by our friends across the pond–American’s can sometimes be stunned by our tiny twisting roads–but anyone from out of county can be overwhelmed when driving here!

His bespoke guided tours of Cornwall can be tailored to your needs. Barry is even happy to collect you from the airport and take you to your accommodation, and he’ll venture out of county if that’s helpful too!


Whether your interest is seeing Cornwall as a film set, at Doc Martin and the Fisherman’s Friends’ Port Isaac, or touring the county’s award winning breweries and vineyards, you can create a unique experience. The idea of being able to sit back, relax and enjoy the trip is really quite appealing to most people!

The real gem though of Cornwall Discovery Tours is Barry himself, such warm host, whose chatter is filled with anecdotes that make your trip so memorable. For instance, Tripadviser shows 109 reviews rated as ‘Excellent’ and just one at ‘Very Good’!  With comments like; “After spending several days with Barry, we understood why he gets rave reviews. Barry is Cornwall!”

Certainly something to consider if you are new to the county or want to really know the locals’ Cornwall.
