Western Discoveries has a simple aim. We want to give you a great time while discovering Cornwall.
Our personalised tours and holidays are designed to bring you the best, most interesting and most beautiful of Cornwall’s charms. Hassle free visits along well trodden paths and around quiet corners are our speciality.
Who we are
Western Discoveries is run by Russ & Sabrina Peake and their colleague, Matt Frost, from their office just outside of Penzance. In this far western part of the county the natural beauty is outstanding, ancient stones dot the moors and folklore touches everything. A fascination and pride in the region is only natural and having returned home following time abroad (over the Tamar and beyond), Russ set up Western Discoveries in 2008 to share his enthusiasm and knowledge.
Local knowledge is paramount if you want to make the most of what Cornwall has to offer and this is where we excel. Having grown up in the region and covered a good part of the county a good many times, Russ developed an understanding and intimacy with Western Cornwall that now forms the basis of Western Discoveries. From the geology to legends of the giants that lie underneath the granite hills, he has the local knowledge to make a Cornish tour special.
Our self led walking holidays make use of B&Bs that we visit personally, our itineraries are planned along routes that we have walked ourselves and everything is designed to add a personal touch that makes your walking holiday special. Our tours and walks are marked by the same personal touch and an intimacy that is difficult to beat.
We love Cornwall and love sharing it with you!
