A 5 day drinks inclusive spring break in the picturesque south west of England

Newquay 

Newquay has a rare mix of wonderful coastlines; spectacular beaches washed clean by the Atlantic Ocean; rock pools teeming with marine life; crystal-clear sea for a leisurely swim, or for the challenge of surfing the best sets in Britain; soaring cliffs with magnificent views; and delightful gardens for tranquil strolls.

 

Mevagissey 

The village nestles in a small valley and faces east to Mevagissey Bay. The inner and outer harbours are busy with a mixture of pleasure vessels and working fishing boats, the remains of a once major industry. However tourism has supplanted fishing as the dominant industry in recent years. Mevagissey village centre consists of narrow streets with many places to eat and shops aimed at the tourist trade. The outer areas are built on the steep slopes of the surrounding hillsides and are mostly residential.

Truro

Truro is an historic Market Town full of richness and diversity. In the centre of town, the Pannier Market is the largest of Truro's indoor markets and offers a huge range of goods, with something of interest for every shopper. Cornwall's only city, wander through the streets to discover independent retailers but also national chains. Truro also has two markets open 6 days a week as well as Farmers Markets every Wednesday and Saturday.

Our maritime heritage is important to us, with river trips to Falmouth and to Trelissick Gardens, with its elaborate gardens, wide open spaces and fantastic views. Truro Cathedral dominates the skyline and plays an important part in the City's story. It hosts lunchtime recitals, evening concerts and plays. The Victoria Gardens are near the City centre and provide a haven of peace among the award winning floral displays - a lovely setting for an alfresco lunch, popular with locals and visitors.

 

Penzance

Famous for its pirates, well the singing variety anyway, Penzance is a historic port on the south facing shores of Mount’s Bay and has one of the mildest climates in the UK. There is the abundance of palm trees and gardens full of sub-tropical plants, a sure sign that you have arrived somewhere unique made even more special by the sight of St Michael’s Mount out to sea. Wander the town’s streets and you’ll come across the fabulously decorated Egyptian House, the statue of local hero Sir Humphry Davy (pioneer of mine safety) and art galleries, book sellers and new age shops which add a slightly bohemian feel to the town while down at the harbour boat trips, sea safaris and fishing excursions provide some great seaborne activities.

St Ives

St Ives, the most famous of Cornish holiday towns, loved for generations, is easy to reach by road or by air and easy by train, too, along one of the most spectacular railway journeys in Britain to crystal blue waters, golden sands and a warm welcome. We nearly forgot the mild sub-tropical climate, warmed year round by the Gulf Stream!

Life in St Ives is cradled around the harbour where boats still land good catches of freshest fish for the local restaurants to nourish you with. Brought ashore on the ancient granite quays, the catch is of the highest quality for your dinner plate or for the tables of some of Britain's finest restaurants. A maze of tiny cobbled streets to wander through, lined by fishermen's cottages, with a breathtaking seaside vista to greet you at the end of each one.

 

Padstow

A town and fishing port on the north coast of Cornwall, Padstow is situated on the west bank of the River Camel estuary approximately 10 miles northeast of Newquay. Padstow is now a popular tourist destination. Although some of its former fishing fleet remains, it is mainly a yachting haven on a dramatic coastline with few easily navigable harbours. The influence of restaurateur Rick Stein can be seen in the port, and tourists travel from long distances to eat at his restaurant and cafés.
