Spend a Cornish summer amid glorious scenery and fascinating people Cornwall with Caroline Quentin is a rollicking ride through southern England’s coastal playground, where surfers catch big waves, vintners harvest sun-ripened grapes, and pirates swarm over a medieval fortress. Host Quentin brings plenty of charming wit to this wide-ranging travelogue, but it’s the quirky locals and stunning scenery that truly steal the show. The Cornish peninsula stretches into the Atlantic Ocean for hundreds of miles of gorgeous coastline, where aristocrats live in centuries-old manors and beachcombers barbecue lobster by the water. At every turn, Quentin dives headlong into the summer festivities, joining the locals at a quaint village pub and cheering on a regatta composed of not-so-seaworthy vessels. The distinctively English spirit of carefree adventure and conviviality shines through every scene, as Quentin explores its history and attractions. Actress Caroline Quentin starred in the hit series Men Behaving Badly and Blue Murder. Twice the winner of the British Comedy Award, Quentin has also presented several documentaries, including Caroline Quentin: A Passage Through India and Restoration Home.

What spoils it though is a lot of timewasting showing off upper class bed & breakfast establishments instead of concentrating more on the beautiful towns & vlilages and more. For example,there is nothing on the Eden Project,or even a brief look at Lands End,at the very tip of England.
