    Set beside the harbour, in an enviable position, the Ship and Castle Hotel is full of the charming atmosphere of nautical St Mawes and is an ideal base for a leisurely holiday. From this peaceful spot, with its winding streets and ancient Tudor castle, a short ferry trip (weather permitting!) is a lovely way to reach Falmouth and its range of interests. Delightful country and cliff-top walks are on hand, or you may prefer to take to the road and escape to a deserted beach, try your luck at sea angling, or cruise up pretty creeks and rivers. Whatever you choose to do, the Ship and Castle is one of the best equipped hotels in St Mawes for you to simply sit back and relax, and is a perfect complement to all that Cornwall has to offer.

    Eden Project
    Full Day: Eden Project including introductory talk
    Today we make our way to the Eden Project. Giant biomes, big enough to contain the Tower of London, act as the world's climate zones, containing thousands of important and beautiful plants from every corner of the world. A short introductory talk on arrival is included to make sure you get the most out of your time here!
    Lost Gardens of Heligan
    Half Day: Lost Gardens of Heligan

    Today we embark on a magical mystery tour around the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Exotic plants, lush greenery and a blaze of colour combine to create a wonderful horticultural haven. The Lost Gardens of Heligan were first established in Mevagissey by the Tremayne family in the mid-18th century. They surround the Heligan estate, on which is the beautiful Jacobean Heligan House.

    The public gardens around the house are filled with wonderful scenery, as the plants here have been perfectly preserved and tended to. There are a number of gardens to wander through, including the Italian Garden, the Jungle, the Vegetable Garden and the Waller Garden. We’ll see gigantic rhododendrons, aged camellias, and Europe’s last pineapple pit.
