2021 - Cornish Smugglers Adventure
2021 - Priory Lodge Hotel - 3 Days (CU3ABJ)
Follow in the footsteps of Cornwall's smugglers on this mini-break!!
The unofficial capital of Cornish surfing is also one of Cornwalls busiest towns. Newquay’s cluster of beaches remains as glorious as ever, and if you’re looking to learn how to brave the waves, this is the place to do it. Apart from the twelve golden beaches, Newquay has many hidden gems to explore on this delightful break.
We’re staying at the Priory Lodge, where you will find patios and lawns with plenty of room for everyone to relax and enjoy the views. The attractive lounge has a big screen TV and overlooks the pool (heated May to Sep) and the stunning Cornish coastline. For indoor leisure there is a sauna, solarium and a small games room with a pool table. The restaurant has fabulous views of the coast and has a very relaxed and informal atmosphere. Guests are most welcome to visit the kitchen at any time, where they can see the care and attention given to the preparation of food. Entertainment most evenings with plenty of fun for everyone.
You'll have a day to explore Newqay at leisure, plus you won’t want to miss the Smugglers Ghost Walk in the evening. On the way down to Cornwall, we stop off at Bodmin too.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
Priory Lodge Hotel
Originally a vicarage, the Priory Lodge Hotel stands in its own grounds just a 2 minute walk into the town centre and a further 2 minutes to the closest local beach. The hotel offers free WiFi in all ground floor areas. The Olde Worlde bar is always a popular venue for a tipple or two and there is also a lovely restaurant with great sea views. The attractive lounge has a big screen TV and overlooks the pool (heated May to Sep) and the stunning Cornish coastline. For indoor leisure there is a sauna, solarium and a small games room with a pool table. Entertainment most evenings with plenty of fun for everyone.
After joining us at one of our pick-up points we head to Cornwall, stopping at Bodmin along the way with time to explore. Rejoin the coach as we set off for Newquay. We arrive late afternoon, so you have time to check in, unpack and relax before dinner and the evening entertainment.
Start your day with a tasty English breakfast. You then have free time to explore Newquay, but don’t miss out on the evening Ghost Walk to learn about Cornish smugglers. There will also be dinner and entertainment at the hotel.
After breakfast, we say goodbye and head home. There will be convenient stops along the way for coffee/lunch.

Newquay is a favourite holiday resort for many in Cornwall, with its golden beaches, surfing and great seaside shopping. You’ll have a whole day free to explore and enjoy the town.
