Land, Sea and Moor Tea.

Take a trip through the beautiful North Cornish countryside and along spectacular coastline. Let us worry about the driving whilst you soak up the scenery as we amble along narrow lanes and through tiny hamlets. Eventually we turn away from the coast toward Bodmin Moor where we explore the awe inspiring landscape before stopping in a hidden glade where the only sounds are the gurgling of the river, the breeze in the trees and the boiling of the kettle. Choose from a range of speciality teas supplied by the award winning Westcountry Tea Co. Freshly made and served in best china to wash down the Cornish splits and scones, which are served with butter, a choice of preserves and clotted cream. Also on offer is traditional saffron cake and other fresh baked goodies. If you prefer the sound of a popping cork to a boiling kettle, we can pause at an off license along the way.

Don't know what a Cornish split is? You'll have to come along to find out!

DAYTIME TOURS.

 Scenic And Interesting.

(Coming Easter 2021.)

North Cornwall and West Devon have some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK. It's not just pretty, it's an incredibly old landscape and it's history goes back beyond the dawn of civilisation.
Cornwall is littered with stone circles and ancient burial chambers.
Are you intrigued by the legend of King Arthur?

What makes the Bude Canal almost unique in the world?
More recently North Cornwall played an important role in WW2.
Perhaps you'd like to see where Doc Martin practices, or see Ross Poldarks mine?

Would you like to see the landscape that inspired Conan Doyle to write "Hound of The Baskervilles"?
Of course you can make up your own itinerary. Tell me what you want to see and we'll trundle off to see it!

NIGHT TOURS.

Stars, Ghosts and Beasts.

Bude is located between two internationally recognised "Dark Sky Areas". The night skies are absolutely amazing when the weather is clear.  Of course the wild and lonely landscape has its mysteries. Whether or not you believe in the existence of ghosts, there are well documented sightings of apparitions around North Cornwall and on Bodmin Moor. Of course there's also a chance to spot The Beast of Bodmin!
I can't guarantee ghosts, but complimentary spirits are included in the night tour.
(See what I did there?)

(There will be a night tour of Dartmoor starting Easter 2021)

HISTORY OF THE TAXI.

Designed in around 1955 the FX4 was a collaboration between Mann and Overton, who were the vehicle supplier to the London taxi trade, and the British car and van manufacturer Austin.
Designed around the Metropolitan Police "conditions of fitness" the interior head height, step height and legendary turning circle are all requirements for taxis to this day.
Going into production in 1959 the FX4 saw very little change until 1989. The vehicle saw an overhaul of the interior to include wheelchair accessibility, the manufacturers fitted the superb Nissan engine and it was re named "Fairway". A few years later the steering, suspension and braking system were bought up to date. The very last Fairway was built on the first of October 1997.
The Little White Taxi was built in 1995 and had four owners during her twenty year career in London. She was then used as a promotional tool for a firm for around three years before being owned by a taxi trade mechanic for around two years. The Little White Taxi came to Cornwall in June this year and has undergone extensive cosmetic and mechanical refurbishment.

The Little White Taxi is one of around only ten still in public service and one of only 307 currently on the road in the UK. 

Gift Cards Are Available.
