It's not just our language that makes us unique - we have some of the best scenery and tourist attractions anywhere in the country. That's why Cornwall has been named Best UK Holiday Destination by the British Travel Awards for the past five years in a row. So now you've booked your holiday, why not start planning how you're going to spend your days here!
From your base on the Pentire headland, there is a wealth of natural wonders waiting to be explored - not least the headland itself, which is worth a stroll at any time of the day, but especially at sunset. Why not hire a boat on the lake at Trenance or take a walk on one of the ten beaches surrounding the town. Then there's Newquay Zoo, Blue Reef Aquarium and Dairyland Farmworld, not forgetting zorbing, horse riding and dolphin-spotting on a sea safari. Or why not indulge in a spa treatment or simply tuck into the greatest luxury there is: a proper Cornish cream tea. Click here for more ideas for days out in Newquay and beyond.
The Pentire Hotel is the ideal base for exploring Cornwall, being in one of the most central locations in the Duchy. You can be in Falmouth in under an hour and Land's End in a little over that. Tintagel Castle, believed to be the birthplace of King Arthur, is an hour to the north, while the ever-popular Eden Project is just over half an hour to the east. St Ives, with its many galleries and eateries, is a short drive along the coast, as is Port Isaac, home of TV's Doc Martin, while the Minack Theatre, carved into a cliff near Land's End, is well within striking distance for a day trip.
