Newquay & Eden Project 5 Days - Eliot Hotel
Newquay is Cornwall's premier holiday resort boasting some of the finest coastline and beaches in Europe. Although well known as Britain's surfing capital, there are many other activities and the surrounding countryside has an endless wealth of fascinating places to visit. The town is an ancient one - the "new quay" from which it takes its name dates from the early fifteenth century! The heart of the town is the old harbour but it spreads along the cliff tops which stand behind the eleven magnificent sandy beaches. Newquay offers wonderful cliff and beach walks, a picturesque harbour to explore and the variety of activities one associates with such a major resort, including swimming pools, golf, putting, squash, tennis, bowls, boating, shark fishing and horse riding. There are also the atmospheric smugglers' pubs which are a living reminder of the more colourful side of Cornwall's history!
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
FIVE DAY (FOUR NIGHT) TOUR
Full Day Excursion to Eden Project
The Eden Project is worth visiting for its architecture alone. But of course the plants are the real stars and its collection of tropical and warm temperate plants will fascinate even the non-gardener - and delight and amaze those with a passion for gardening. An amazing experience! (Admission included in the tour cost).
Full Day Excursion to Padstow & Bodmin
We travel north to Padstow, a charming fishing village on the Camel Estuary noted as a sailing dinghy centre and Cornwall's capital of seafood cuisine, made famous by the celebrity chef Rick Stein. We then head inland to historic Bodmin, formerly Cornwall's county town, which features several museums, the largest parish church in Cornwall and quirky independent shops in its quaint narrow streets.
Very well situated close to Great Western and Tolcarne beaches, only a few yards from the sea front and within easy walking distance of the shops and harbour. 76 bedrooms with central heating and bath or shower and WC. All rooms have tea/coffee making facilities, hair dryer and television with radio channels.
There are three lovely airy lounges in which to relax, plus a bar lounge with dance floor where entertainment is provided most evenings. There is also a games room and outdoor swimming pool (heated May to September). The lift serves most rooms although all floors are split level with some intermediate stairs. Large car park.
