South West Adventure - Help Wanted

Cowie and I are getting very excited about our summer holidays. We are keeping it local this year and praying for sunshine! We are going on a road trip starting in Somerset and exploring Cornwall, Devon and West Dorset staying in BnBs and putting our tent up to cut the costs.
I've made a little map to plot our intended route. The plan is to drive down to St. Ives and then make our way around to Falmouth, Fowey, Salcombe and then back to Cowie's parents' house via River Cottage.
We've got a few places lined up for good food and interesting adventures, such as the Porthminster Cafe and the Gurnard's Head in St. Ives and Sunday lunch at River Cottage HQ. But what we'd love is any advice you've got, particularly concerning Falmouth, Fowey and Salcombe. We'd hate to miss out on a treat somewhere. Do you know any amazing restaurants, cafes, camp sites, fishmongers, tea shops, walks, golf courses etc. that will turn our holiday into a memorable adventure?
Also, we're really keen to cook some fun stuff on our BBQ whilst we're camping. In the past we've got carried away and tucked into lobster, skate knobs and oriental steamed sea bream followed by a "muffin orange".
So if you've got any exciting ideas for camp site gastronomy let us know as well! Lizzie has already suggested: "How about fish in a biscuit tin with wood chippings? Or burying meat in hay and setting fire to the hay?"
We'd love your help. Thank you.
