This seaside holiday is based in Newquay, surfing capital of England and home to colourful fishing boats and golden sands. Relax on Fistral beach, enjoy a nostalgic trip on the Lappa Valley steam train, be amazed at the Blue Reef Aquarium watching sharks and octopuses from an underwater tunnel or explore Trenance Leisure Park where you’ll find crazy golf, a mini railway and pitch and putt. Perhaps watch the big cats devour their lunch at the award winning zoo, set in tropical gardens and housing endangered animals. Maybe wander down to the old harbour to take a cruise around the coast or head to the National Trust’s Trerice House - a romantic Elizabethan manor with fine interiors, formal gardens and an enchanting tearoom. We venture out to discover the maritime town of Falmouth and historic Truro, Cornwall’s only city. We also explore the coastline discovering the picturesque ports of St Ives, Padstow, Carbis Bay, Port Isaac, Land’s End and Penzance.

Your ExcursionsFalmouth & Truro
Falmouth is steeped in maritime history and home to the world’s third largest deep water harbour. The town has inspired countless artists, sailors, explorers and musicians. Near the entrance to Falmouth Docks you’ll find the lifeboat station where guides are happy to give you a tour of their boats and explain the activities of the RNLI. Above it, on a headland, is imposing Pendennis Castle, built on the orders of Henry VIII to defend this important harbour. This original Tudor keep features a round tower, underground passageways and a WWII battery. Perhaps visit the National Maritime Museum Cornwall with its twelve interactive galleries and a flotilla of model boats. We continue to Truro, Cornwall’s only city and home to a stunning gothic revival cathedral with three soaring spires that dominate the skyline. Its south aisle is what remains of St Mary’s Church and is said to be one of the finest pieces of medieval architecture in Cornwall. Inside its grand walls, you’ll find a treasure trove of stained glass
St Ives & Carbis Bay
Our first stop is St Ives where you might like to meander through the narrow streets, relax in a pavement café or watch the world go by from the harbour. We move on to Carbis Bay, one of Cornwall’s award winning beaches with turquoise waters surrounded by subtropical flowers.
Padstow & Port Isaac
We travel to Doc Martin country, our day split between the quaint fishing villages of Padstow and Port Isaac – Portwenn of the popular television series. Padstow is a tourist hub with narrow streets and where private yachts bob in the picturesque marina. Port Isaac is its quieter neighbour with a sprinkling of friendly pubs and eateries.
Penzance & Land’s End
Penzance is an attractive town with exotic gardens, art galleries and handsome granite architecture. Chapel Street runs from the heart of the resort down to the harbour and is lined with shops, quirky pubs and historic buildings including the distinctive Egyptian House with its sphinx-like adornments. Land’s End features wave battered cliffs towering over churning seas and gives views as far as the Scilly Isles on a clear day.
