Born in Lelant, Cornwall in 1924, Rosamunde Pilcher is one of the county’s most famous authors. From The Shell Seekers to Day of the Storm, Pilcher’s books have given readers the world over a glimpse of life in Cornwall, with its stunning, wild landscapes and beautifully written characters that really capture the essence of the Cornish people.
Rosamunde Pilcher creates vivid images of Cornwall in the mind of the reader, and with popular titles being made into films, audiences can now enjoy watching these incredible landscapes on the screen… but why stop there? With a visit to Cornwall fans can actually step into Pilchard’s world and experience the real Cornwall for themselves.
With so many of the stories set around the Cornish coast, what better way to visit the locations in Rosamunde Pilcher’s books than with your own personal yacht charter package? From exciting day trips to relaxed overnight stays, our team can help you design the perfect itinerary, based around the locations that mean the most to you.
For example, maybe you would like to see the charming cove at Lamorna, which features in one of Pilchard’s most popular books, The Shell Seekers. Or perhaps you’re interested in the dramatic backdrop of disused mining stacks and towering cliffs at St Agnes Head that are a common feature. The iconic St Michaels Mount plays an important part in Coming Home, and this fairytale castle that is cut off by the tide is well worth a visit.
Choose a skippered chartered escape if you would like us to take care of all the sailing and navigation; this will allow you to get involved as little or as much as you like, so you can relax and enjoy your adventure. Our comfortable yachts Yemaya, Tivoli and Annie Jo can accommodate you and your guests, with space for between 5 and 9 individuals, depending on your requirements.
