Your Holiday Centre

Located on Cornwall's Atlantic Coast, Newquay has previously been voted as 'One of the Nation's Favourite Seaside Towns' in the prestigious Which Holiday Survey, Newquay also has some of Cornwall's finest beaches! Newquay's laid-back charm is here for everyone to enjoy.

Newquay has been a major tourist destination for more than a century, principally on account of its coastline and nine long and accessible sandy beaches, including Fistral.

Newquay was originally the fishing port of Towan Blistra before the new quay was built in the fifteenth century. Among other things, the quay was used for the import of coal and the export of mined ore during the heyday of the tin and copper mining industries.

For many years, the main industry was pilchard fishing and salting. Even before this, it was the site of an Iron Age fort. Although the pilchards disappeared long ago, there are still a few boats fishing from Newquay and there are plenty of pleasure craft here as well.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Depart Local Area

After boarding your luxury coach, your holiday has now started. You start your journey by travelling westward with stops en route for lunch. Continuing your journey through beautiful countryside, to the Cornish town of Newquay and the Fistral Beach Hotel, where you will spend the next 4 nights with dinner, bed and breakfast. On Arrival a Cream Tea will be served in the lounge, where you can unwind after your journey and take in the beautiful views of Fistral Beach. At 6pm join the others for a glass or Cornish Cider, then into dinner in the Beach View Restaurant.

Day 2: Truro & Skinners Brewery

After breakfast our trip takes us to Skinners Brewery. In 1997, armed only with his own surname, a chap called Steve Skinner dreamed of setting up a community brewery in Cornwall. On the banks of the Truro River, he and his family brewed ground-breaking golden ale, and named it after the tin-mining faeries of local myth. With Cornish Knocker, Steve set out his stall for concocting trailblazing ales, following it with another legendary brew, a brazen amber ale called Betty Stogs, which CAMRA named Britain's best bitter. Countless barrels and hundreds of awards later, the company has grown, but they're still a family business. A tasting of some of the Ales is provided. We will also have a pasty lunch.

Day 3: Eden Project

Today is a full day's visit to the Eden Project. Depart after breakfast for the Eden Project. (Admission Included). Millions have already visited this 35-acre crater overlooking St Austell Bay, a phenomenal success. The awesome geodesic structures are the world's largest greenhouses, accommodating a fascinating array of plants from everywhere - tropics, rainforests, Oceania, the Mediterranean - and outside, whatever grows under the warm Cornish sun. And not to be overlooked is the Eden Project's role as a new scientific institute and forum for the 21st Century, a centre of communication, education and participation. After a great day out, we return to our hotel for our evening meal.

Day 4: Half Day to Healy's Cider Farm

Healy's is a working cider farm steeped in history, which has been brewing award-winning ciders, wines, and fruit juices for over 25 years. You will have a chance to sample some Cornish ciders along with an Orchards Tour (weather permitting). We then return back to the hotel to relax before our 5 course taster menu sampling some of the best seafood Cornwall has to offer with a glass of Camel Valley's sparkling wine. Followed by live entertainment.

Day 5: Depart for Home

After breakfast and cases have been loaded on to the coach, it is time to wave goodbye to our hosts at the Fistral Beach Hotel and head for home. There will be comfort stops en route, and you should be back in your local area by late afternoon.

The driver/guide will do their professional best to ensure that you enjoy this tour. It will be at their discretion to rearrange the itinerary to better the tour for your comfort.
