4 Nights dinner, bed and breakfast
Once collected from your home, we head for the West Country, stopping en-route for lunch and arriving at our hotel in time for dinner.
St Ives & Penzance
A leisurely day as we make our way to lovely St Ives, a beautiful seaside town, set in breath-taking coastal scenery. The town arcs around the harbour and you have the morning to explore the winding cobbled streets, galleries, restaurants, the St Ives Museum or The Tate St Ives. After lunch we travel to Penzance for the afternoon. There's Morrab Gardens or Tanglewood Wild Garden showcasing how the Cornish weather helps many subtropical and Mediterranean plants thrive. You could also visit the Egyptian House, Penlee House Museum or why not just wander down Chapel Street, with its brightly coloured church restaurants, galleries and boutiques leading you to the quayside.
Christmas Day at the Hotel
'Merry Christmas'! Spend the morning at leisure and then enjoy a special visit from Father Christmas! Later sit down to a traditional Christmas Day lunch followed by a relaxing afternoon or take a Christmas day walk and explore St Agnes with a wander along its main sandy beach Trevaunance Cove.
Henry VIII commissioned Pendennis Castle to be built on the entrance to Falmouth's natural harbour where it still stands today and is open to visit. (Entrance fee not included). Falmouth is also the home to the National Maritime Museum Cornwall and for those feeling the need to stretch their legs there's the 111 stone steps of Jacobs ladder to climb, or if your wanting a bit of retail therapy there's Targo Mills, the South West's original discount retailer, offering bargains on thousands of products across 38 departments.
We commence our journey east after breakfast and return to the local area where your taxi will be waiting to return you to your home.
As our itineraries are written many months in advance, hotel entertainment programmes and inclusions are still to be confirmed and may be subject to change without prior notice.
