Gwillen, near Newquay

Imagine yourself taking your morning cup of tea in the conservatory at Gwillen, high above Mawgan Porth beach - whatever the weather, the view is always spectacular and ever changing. Situated virtually at the end of a quiet, private road, the South West Coast Path is literally on your door step and can be used as a route to Mawgan Porth - in the opposite direction lies Bedruthan Steps and a chance to refuel at the National Trust tea room, where scones are freshly made for the creams teas every day. Mawgan Porth has a small selection of shops and eateries and there is plenty to see and do in the area - or for total relaxation check out the Spa options at either the Bedruthan Steps or Scarlett hotels.

A bustling seaside resort perfect for the idyllic beach holiday, with plenty of family activities and over 7 miles of sandy beaches.

Fistral beach is one of the world’s top surfing destinations. There are surfing schools and board hire available direct from the beach and a small selection of cafes nearby. Down on the Towan Promenade, overlooking the beach is the Blue Reef Aquarium housing a range of local and exotic species. Just a short walk from the town centre is Newquay Zoo, a fantastic day out with over 130 rare animals and themed trails. A maze, a gift shop and café are also available on site.

The zoo is located within Trenance gardens, which includes swimming pool facilities and a fitness centre in ‘Waterworld’. There is also a skate park, miniature railway, crazy golf and riding stables. Rowing and pedal boats are available to hire, and there is a lakeside café.

Other great days out locally include the Screech Owl Sanctuary and the Lappa Valley Steam Railway. A National Trust house open to the public, Trerice Elizabethan Manor has a café facility and gardens. Dairyland Farm World is a great all weather attraction, there is a large indoor play area, nature trail, pony rides and many more family friendly activities.


Cornwall is the most western part of the South West of England and is a very popular holiday destination with its array of golden sand beaches and dramatic cliff top scenery. The Cornish peninsular is bordered by sea, north, south and west with just one (land based) entrance and exit route over the eastern border to Devon. Traditionally fishing, mining and agriculture were the mainstays of the local economy but tourism has since replaced these. Cornwall boasts thousands of acres of un-spoilt moorland protected as an area of outstanding natural beauty. All year round, the 630 miles of coastal walks (preserved in part by the National Trust and Duchy of Cornwall), are enjoyed by walkers of all ages. Cornwall is known for its mild climate giving rise to the plethora of botanical & specialist gardens like the Eden project, Trelissick and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. By escaping to Cornwall you can thoroughly immerse yourself in the many contrasts that draw visitors year after year. From the picturesque fishing villages steeped in history to the iconic Eden Project, looking to the future. Survey the changing landscape from moorland to the dramatic & varied Cornish coastline. Sample the freshest gourmet offerings from the abundance of local produce or simply find a quiet spot and unwind with a Cornish clotted cream ice-cream! Wherever you choose to hang up your boots, you will never be far from the sea.

South West

England’s peninsula incorporates the counties of Cornwall and Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Bristol. This region is mostly rural so is perfect to escape the everyday hustle and bustle, whether relaxing with the family by the seaside or exploring the wild moors and rugged coastline. The area boasts hundreds of beautiful sandy bays to choose from and fantastic surfing opportunities. The historic cities of Exeter, Bath and Gloucester are definitely worth a visit, and with transport links all the way down to Penzance even the famous Lands End and remote Isles of Scilly can be reached.
