Join us as we travel to Newquay, one of Britain’s most outstanding resorts, reputed to have the finest coastline and beaches in Europe. This very attractive and popular resort enjoys a host of facilities, including a busy and picturesque harbour and a lively town centre offering a good range of shops. There really is so much here to delight the visitor, a superb combination of visual beauty and all the fun of the seaside. We include visits to the famous Trelissick Garden and Lanhydrock House & Gardens, along with a relaxing cruise to lovely Falmouth.
This 4 star hotel is located just one minute away from the beach. The hotel features beautifully designed en-suite bedrooms, all with a TV and tea/coffee making facilities. Hotel facilities include panoramic views of Fistral Bay, an indoor swimming pool, a spa, steam room, Jacuzzi and a fitness centre. A lift serves all floors.
Sunday Our door to door service takes you to the waiting Club Class coach as we travel south. We then travel by way of Oxford and Swindon arrive in Newquay late afternoon with time to settle in before dinner.
Monday A full day tour of the picturesque Atlantic coast visiting St Ives with its charming harbours and cobbled streets and famous for its collection of art galleries including the Tate. This afternoon we journey on to the busy port and market town of Penzance to spend time before returning to Newquay and our hotel with time to relax before dinner.
Tuesday A visit to the wonderful Trelissick Gardens, where tender subtropical plants thrive in sheltered glades. Located at the head of the Fal Estuary, the tiered garden takes full advantage of stunning views of Falmouth Harbour and the wide waterway known as the Carrick Road. Later we enjoy a boat cruise to Falmouth, where the deep water harbour is guarded by the castles of Pendennis and St Mawes. We have time here to wander around before making our way back to the hotel for dinner.
Wednesday After breakfast we make our way to Padstow, a charming working fishing port surrounded by glorious sandy beaches at the head of the Camel River. Watching the everyday ebb and flow of harbour life is a perfect way to spend time here. It has now also established itself as a ‘foodie destination’ with popular eateries such as TV chef Rick Stein’s Seafood. This afternoon we visit Lanhydrock, a magnificent late Victorian country house with extensive servants' quarters, gardens and wooded estate with a stunning 17th-century gatehouse and long gallery - the ultimate 19thcentury 'Upstairs/Downstairs' experience! The house was also the film location for scenes from more recent version of The Three Musketeers and Twelfth Night. We return to Newquay with time to relax before dinner.
Thursday A leisurely ride to the cathedral city of Truro with this afternoon spent at leisure back in our resort.
Friday We depart Newquay after breakfast and begin our journey home. Using the motorways we arrive in our home areas late afternoon.
