Cornish Proper Job

Our day starts walking Cornwall, we have selected a few different locations in North Cornwall for you to walk Cornwall, have a fresh pasty and finish off on our cider tour of Haywood’s Cider Farm.

The first part of your Cornish Proper Job Tour is a 4 mile round trip through the spectacular Pentire Point ending up at The Rumps which is a stone age settlement enjoying the fantastic scenery and coastal views of North Cornwall.

Or perhaps you would prefer to visit Rough Tor which is a mile from Brown Willy which is the Cornwall’s second highest point and is situated in Bodmin Moor, near the town of Camelford. The tor has a very distinctive contour. The summit of Rough Tor rises to 1,313 feet (400m) above sea level, making it is the second highest point in Cornwall. The De Lank River rises in the vicinity and flows between the two hills. The tor makes an excellent viewpoint over the surrounding area.

We visit one of the region’s most successful pasty makers which is one of the best in Cornwall. See how pasties are prepared and made as well as sampling some of the different flavoured pasties that are sold in their shop. The traditional Cornish pasty,

We then drive a short distance to the beautiful Allen Valley to the Haywards Cider Farm where the Bray family have farmed their land since 1919. Cider has been produced on the farm’s granite cider press for centuries and has supplied the families and labourers with the West Country’s favourite drink. On the final part of the Proper Cornish proper job tour you are given a tour of the cider farm with local cider expert Tom Bray. On this cider tour you will see propagating apple trees and a brief tour of the orchards before you heads back to the cider house for the most important part of the cider tour….. to sample the Cornish cheese board and most importantly cider sampling. A most welcoming end to a compact day and a great way to finish on your proper Cornish day out tour.
