Four female friends are planning a stay in Cornwall for 8-9 days in May 2023. Several of us spent 3 days in Camborne a few years ago to visit ancestral home location. We loved visiting St. Ives for a day by train from there. We are having a hard time deciding where to stay this next trip.
Some things we'd like if it all comes together would be: Staying in one location (or 2 maximum) probably an apartment or home rental; easy public transportation for day trips to sights (we will not be driving); quaint village would be ideal, but if we need to consider a larger town for public transportation options, that would be fine; we are interested in walking paths, shopping, dining, gardens, historical sights.
We will be in London for a few days prior to heading to Cornwall and would appreciate any suggestions on train or bus travel to Cornwall in general. We've done a bit of research on the Riviera Sleeper train, which is intriguing, but will depend on where we book lodging...perhaps from suggestions from this forum!
Traveling from USA,
I'm sure I've missed some details that might help the forum members in making suggestions. Please let me know and I'll reply ASAP!
