Newquay is ideally located for those who wish to explore Cornwall's broad and varied places of interest. Ranging from fantastic sandy beaches to stunning sub tropical historical gardens and picturesque working harbours. Newquay is the perfect base from which to explore both north and south coast. The Eden Project is about a 20 minute drive and even a trip to Lands End is under an hour away. Padstow is about a 15 mile drive north up the beautiful Atlantic coast road or St Agnes and Perranporth are a similar distance in the opposite direction.
Cornwall has a large number of National Trust properties and English Heritage attractions. Lanhydrock House near Bodmin is a facinating time capsule, St Michael's Mount boasts an incredable location which is unique to this country and the castles of St Mawes and Pendennis are a must.
Newquay Airport offers a daily service in a small aircraft down the north coast to the stunning Isles of Scilly. The views from the journey are incredible as you fly over St Ives Habour, Lands End and beyond. This is a trip that we would recommend. Alternatively why not take the open top bus trip from St Ives to Lands End along the stunning coast road.
