Fall for Fabulous Falmouth

With the south of Cornwall being in such high demand, we have managed to secure a selection of dates in the excellent Penmorvah Manor Hotel which occupies a prime position overlooking the beautiful coastline. Enjoy the fantastic attractions in this beautiful area from the comfort of your cliff-top hotel!
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel with time to settle in before dinner.

Day 2 Coastal Tour – Marazion (St Michael’s Mount), Minack Theatre, Land’s End & St Ives
Today, we enjoy a tour around the beautiful Cornish coastline. We begin by travelling to Marazion, Cornwall’s oldest town, for a short stop to view its fabulous sandy beach linked to famous St Michael’s Mount, where its fairy-tale castle perches majestically. We take in the stunning views toward the Lizard Peninsula and Land’s End before travelling onwards along the coast road to the world-famous Minack Theatre. Perched on the cliffs high above the Atlantic Ocean, the unique Minack Theatre enthrals audiences with the magic of live theatre from its amazing location. We will experience stunning views and hear the waves lapping against the granite cliffs below whilst learning more about the unique history of this spectacular location.

The last leg of our journey is to St Ives via Lands End, where we will have a short stop and an opportunity for photos at the UK’s most southerly point. We arrive in the picturesque fishing harbour and seaside town of St Ives in time for lunch and time at leisure to explore this dazzling jewel in Cornwall’s crown before making our way back to our hotel.

Note: due to its location, access to the Minack Theatre is via shuttle bus (small charge £1pp)

Day 3 Trelissick Gardens (NT) & St Mawes
This morning, we make our way to Trelissick Gardens, fabulously positioned on its own peninsula, with panoramic views over the Fal estuary, one of the best views in the country. Meander along the paths leading through the garden, leading to exotic plants and herbaceous borders bursting with colour and explore the house, which has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere with a rolling programme of exhibitions that reveal stories from its diverse history, as well as a renowned art gallery showcasing a wide range of work from local Cornish artists.

We then head to the charming harbour town of St Mawes, where we will have time to explore the picturesque harbour. If passengers are able, we recommend a visit to Lamorran Gardens in St Mawes which, in addition to boasting fabulous gardens, also serve some of the best scones in Cornwall! We return to Falmouth by the historic Cornish ferry which links St Mawes harbour to Falmouth harbour – one of Cornwall’s iconic boat trips, the 20 minute journey takes in beautiful scenery, including two historic castles and a wealth of marine life in Falmouth Bay.

Day 4 Falmouth
This morning we make the short journey to Falmouth town centre where we have a free day to explore at leisure. Enjoy a stroll around the thriving harbour discovering its fascinating maritime heritage, visit the National Maritime Museum and its huge collection of boats and stories of intrepid explorers or take a river cruise up the River Fal which runs through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – there is plenty to enjoy here.

Day 5 Departure
Today, we must leave Cornwall behind and make our way home.
