Days Two – Four – in and around St Mawes
Over the three days we have in St Mawes we have included two excursions. One takes us to Flambards Amusement Park with rides, activities and “time travel” experiences. The other will go to the town of Truro, one of the larger Cornish towns, it is still relatively small though, the cathedral and the Royal Cornwall Museum are highlights. The other day is free for you to enjoy at leisure, there are a number of walking trails that pass St Mawes and follow dramatic coastline, often leading to beautiful beaches. Falmouth is also only 20 minutes away via a ferry which leaves from just outside the hotel. (B,D)

Ship and Castle Hotel
The Ship & Castle occupies an enviable position right on the harbour of the sleepy Cornish coastal village of St Mawes with views of Carrick Roads and Percuill River.
At the other side of the village is St Mawes Castle which is at the perfect spot for views over the coast to Pendennis Castle in Falmouth. From St Mawes you will be in a magnificent place to explore the Roseland Peninsula which has a number of beautiful walking trails along the coast.
Taking the ferry across Carrick Roads to Falmouth there are a number of great attractions in town to enjoy including Falmouth Art Gallery and the National Maritime Museum Cornwall. You can pick up the South West Coast Path in town to take in the Lizard Heritage Coast which is a stunning mix of green hills and dramatic seaside cliffs.
Inside the hotel is the perfect place to relax, with fantastic views so why not grab a bottle of wine in the lounge and look out at the boats on the harbour as the sunsets after a busy day?
Flambards Victorian Village
We visit Flambards Amusement Park, which features a number of different themed attractions including aircraft, models and exhibitions. The Britain in the Blitz and Victorian Village Exhibits are the most popular in the park, with the latter having grown into a collection of more than 50 shops and cottages showing what life would have been like during the Victorian Era. As well as these there are other historical exhibits showcasing social history from the past three centuries and even a few rides to enjoy.
Jaunt to Truro
Truro is one of the largest towns in the county, however it is still a relatively small, charming town. Highlights here are the cathedral, a beautiful three spired Gothic Revival design and the Royal Cornwall Museum, which gives a great insight into Cornish life, history and culture. There is also a wide variety of shops here and the Pannier market is open year round with a variety of interesting stalls and small businesses housed inside.
