Come along on this excellent 5 day holiday to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and dramatic scenery of Cornwall. We are returning to the excellent 3* Esplanade Hotel, a quality hotel which enjoys fantastic ocean views over Fistral Beach on the outskirts of Newquay.
We include some top destinations on the excursions - sample the friendly Cornish hospitality, explore a world class garden and see the culinary and artistic centres of this remarkable county. Wherever you travel in the county you are surrounded by dramatic scenery.
After being collected from your home (approx 8.00am) we have refreshment stops as required before arriving at the hotel late afternoon. Time to settle in to the hotel and hopefully enjoy your first sunset from the beachfront lounge.
Today we will have a half day excursion along the coast to Padstow. We head off mid morning to visit this charming Cornish fishing port home of Rick Stein’s culinary empire. Feel the history as you stroll around the narrow streets and pick out somewhere nice for lunch.
Memorable day out today as we head to the superb Trebah Gardens. These amazing sub tropical gardens near to Falmouth have a stunning location with a staggering variety of plants and trees including 100 year old rhododendrons, magnolias and camellias. One of the most popular gardens in the whole country. Entrance included. Please note there are steep sections in the gardens.
We shall have a lovely drive out through the countryside to St Ives, an artists paradise and one of the most beautiful seaside towns in the county with an array of galleries and interesting shops.
We head home this morning, with refreshment stops as required before being returned to your home via our home collection service around 5.00/6.00pm.
