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 the next three days in the fabulous seaside resort of Newquay during which time we will take two included excursions to explore 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.
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)
Time to say goodbye today; we depart after breakfast and make our way to the interchange before returning home. (B)
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.
Jaunt to Falmouth
Enjoy an included excursion to Falmouth which is renowned for its spectacular beaches and stunning harbor. You’ll have time to take in the sights of this beautiful town, Pendennis castle is a short walk from the town centre and after being built by Henry VIII in the 16th century, saw military use for over 400 years before being decommissioned in 1956. Another must see is the Cornish branch of the National Maritime Museum which contains fantastic exhibits detailing national and particularly Cornish contributions to life at sea.
Scenic drive to Padstow
Scenic drive to the pretty village of Padstow which is packed with colour washed houses that lead down to the quayside.
