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?
Full Day: Eden Project
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.
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.
