“It’s very special to me this place, I think some of the happiest times of my life have been spent in and around this river. So for me, it means more than I can find words for actually, I simply adore it here.” Caroline Quentin 
Caroline Quentin returns for a second series of Cornwall, spending the summer in Britain’s most westerly county to take us further into the heartland of its scenic beauty, meet the people at the heart of its community and to discover yet more of its hidden gems. 
Caroline truly immerses herself in Cornish life and during the series she takes to the seas with the crew of the Padstow RNLI, goes lobster fishing with Callum from Fresh From The Sea café, and learns the art of sheep herding with the Williams family. 
Caroline revisits one of the places she stopped off at during series one, Simon and Jemma at The Hidden Hut, Portcurnick beach, to help them serve up one of their famous beach feasts and to find out some surprise news. 
Also this series, we join Caroline in iconic villages such as Newlyn and Port Isaac where she mines deeper into the area’s rich heritage, investigating the legends and landscape of this historic county. 
This week, farmer and coasteering enthusiast Sam Williams takes to the water with some intrepid tourists. 
Trebah Gardens green fingered head gardener, Darren Dickey, gets his hands dirty for the annual hydrangea harvest. 
Caroline drops in on the crew of the Padstow RNLI and takes to the water with them on a training exercise, a boat trip she’ll never forget.
