We are returning to this area after 15 years and want to stay in self catering accommodation in medium sized towns near natural beauty and be able to drive the areas from these bases.
We will book 3 different locations and want advice on which towns would be the most enjoyable to stay in for 3 nights each. We are happy to drive each day to other places.
We are thinking of booking near Exeter to explore that area, but aren't sure which other 2 locations would work best for a relaxing holiday and experiencing the local way of life. We like Padstow area, Fowey, Clovelly area but not the town. We will drive to St Ives from a base only.
Which of these towns would suit our needs and work best together. We will be travelling in May.
Any local advice would be appreciated as our previous trip was quick and we didn't get to stay in any of these places.
