Cornwall has such a lot to offer, from beachside hotels, fishing villages, manor houses and gardens to rainforests, shipwrecks and Cornish cyder....our itinerary below includes them all, and a visit to the county town of Truro! Get a real taste of Cornwall from our base in one of the UK’s favourite seaside towns, Newquay, and experience them all!
Day 1 Morning collection from your home to join our coach for the drive west. We arrive at our hotel in Newquay late afternoon.
Day 2 Our morning is spent at leisure in Newquay before our afternoon visit to St Austell Brewery Visitor Centre which offers a new and interactive Brewing Experience. The refurbished accessible visitor centre reveals the secrets behind St Austell's award-winning ales and 160 year old brewing process.
The interactive tour includes digital and physical displays, a stroll down Walters Walk which will show us how things used to be done at the brewery, a reconstructed Cooper's Yard and a visit to the Small Batch Brewery with tutored beer sampling and a pint of St Austell's beer to enjoy at the Hicks Bar or a bottle to take home.
Day 3 The Eden Project is our destination today. Nestled in a huge crater, massive Biomes housing the largest rainforest in captivity.
In the afternoon we will make our way to Charlestown with its pristine, unspoilt original Grade II Listed Harbour and its famous fleet of Square Riggers ships. A popular location for films and TV programmes, the harbour and ships are used in film projects from all over the world and are a particular draw for visitors.
Day 4 Today we make our way to Truro, the county town of Cornwall. We will then visit the family run Healey's Cornish Cyder Farm, the largest cider makers in Cornwall where a range of award winning ciders, wines, spirits and preserves are produced.
Day 5 After breakfast we depart our hotel and return home via a mystery stop where we allow free time to explore and obtain lunch before we continue our journey home.
