3* Rosemundy House Hotel, St Agnes: Padstow, Prideaux Place & Gardens, St Ives, Trelissick Gardens, The Eden Project & Healy's Cyder Farm

Tuesday 2 June

We depart the local area with stops on route for coffee and lunch before arriving at Rosemundy House Hotel late afternoon ready to settle in and get acquainted with the facilities at the hotel before dinner.

 

Wednesday 3 June

Today we travel to Padstow where we explore the town which has become synonymous with Rick Stein.  The harbour is the bustling centre of the town and further along the front, there is the National Lobster Hatchery (admission at own cost), which was set up to conserve the local lobster population and preserve marine biodiversity. Lobsters are raised from eggs through the most vulnerable stage of their life cycle before being released back into the wild.

We then take a very short drive round to Prideaux Place - living history on the beautiful North Cornish coast. Since its completion in 1592 the same family have lived in this charming Elizabethan manor. Take the guided tour around the house then stroll in the tranquil grounds overlooking the ancient deer park.

 

Thursday 4 June

Today we drive to the charming seaside resort of St Ives.  Best known for its artistic connections, the Tate Gallery looks after the Barbara Hepworth Museum and sculpture garden (admission at own cost). 

 

Friday 5 June

We spend the day at leisure at the hotel and St Agnes.

 

Saturday 6 June

Today we head to Trelissick Gardens (NT) which is set on its own peninsula, with panoramic views over the Fal estuary.  You can explore the meandering paths through the garden, leading to exotic plants and herbaceous borders bursting with colour. For those bringing four-legged friends, Trelissick offers woodland walks through dappled sunlight and across open parkland with views down the estuary to the town of Falmouth. The house has a friendly and inviting atmosphere with a rolling programme of exhibitions that reveal stories from its diverse history.  Trelissick has its own renowned art gallery with a wide range of work from local Cornish artists. We spend the afternoon with free time to explore Falmouth.

 

Sunday 7 June

This morning we make the short journey to The Eden Project.  With three climatic zones and over a million plants, Eden never fails to provide anything less than a jaw-dropping horticultural extravaganza.  In the afternoon we travel to Fowey, a delightful harbour town which has become popular with the rich and famous for their holiday homes.

 

Monday 8 June

This morning we take a short drive into the cathedral city of Truro with the morning to explore at your own leisure.   In the afternoon we visit Healy’s Cornish Cyder Farm.  Healey’s is a family-run farm located deep in the heart of Cornwall, near Newquay. They’ve been making the most of their apples for over 30 years, and are now proud makers of an array of award-winning ciders, wines, spirits and preserves. With a guided tour you will be taken on a journey through the press house, jam factory, museum, distillery, and cellars, before climbing the cider vat and enjoying an aerial view of the modern cider production halls. A tractor ride will show you the 20 acres of orchards.  The tour will conclude with a sampling session.

 

Tuesday 9 June

After breakfast we will start the journey home, with breaks on route for coffee and lunch, arriving back in the local area early evening.
