Itinerary

Day One: Home to Newquay
We’ll make our way from the interchange to Newquay, where we’ll check in to the Bay Marina Hotel and will enjoy an evening meal. (D)

Days Two to Four: Newquay  
We spend three days in the town of Newquay with two enjoyable included excursions to two of Cornwall’s finest seaside towns. 

We travel over to Cornwall’s south coast to visit the scenic town of Falmouth, set at the mouth of a massive and spectacular natural harbour. Here you can visit Pendennis Castle and Cornwall’s arm of the National Maritime Museum, or climb the steps of Jacob’s Ladder for fantastic views over the town. On the way back we will visit Healey’s Cornish Cyder Farm where we will be able to learn about the traditional cider making process and enjoy a tasting of this delicious local tipple!  

We also travel along the coast to the town of Padstow, an amazing town with a pretty dockyard that has become famous for the number of celebrity chefs that have set up restaurants in town. There are a number of places around town to sample fantastic local produce or take a walk along the South West Coast Path to Stepper Point through pretty little harbours lined with small fishing and sailing boats.

You will also have plenty of time to enjoy Newquay which is a vibrant town with a number of great attractions to keep you entertained throughout your stay. The town has a number of beaches with much variation in size and crowds.  (B,D)

Day Five: Newquay to Home

Time to say goodbye today; we depart after breakfast and make our way to the interchange before returning home. (B)

Marina Hotel

Newquay

  • A Bay Preferred hotel – find out more here
  • Situated just across the road from Tolcarne Beach close to all of Newquay’s attractions
  • Enjoy great evening entertainment in the bar and lounge
  • All of Cornwall’s most beautiful sights and greatest attractions are in easy reach

Enjoy the very best of Newquay’s beaches with numerous places to enjoy the sea and sand within an easy walk of the hotel.

Towan Beach is Newquay’s main spot for all the fun of the seaside, with a number of bars, restaurants and shops close by. For a more relaxed experience head just across the road to Tolcarne Beach, a far quieter and more secluded option than Towan.

Head a little way out of town and you can find the Fistral Beach, which is huge in comparison to the beaches in town and is worth the journey for the space and scenery you will find here. From the town take a day trip to Cornish coastal towns and villages such as Falmouth, Padstow and St Ives, all of which can be reached in an hour by car.

A number of the rooms in the hotel are front facing with spectacular views over Tolcarne beach and to the town centre behind it. In the restaurant you can enjoy fabulous breakfasts and evening meals before enjoying a relaxing evening drink in the bar and lounge.
