The Plume of Feathers

Lovely pub, great food in a very easy to get to location (just off the A30 in Mitchell). Stylish surroundings with a recently added conservatory which is furnished to the same high standard. Sister pub to the Lewinnick Lodge in Newquay - the Plume of Feathers may lack a spectacular clifftop setting but you won't be disappointed. Good loos too!

Nearest beach

Tolcarne Beach (4 ¼ miles)

Tolcarne Beach joins up with Great Western and Towan at low tide to create a mile-long stretch of sand. A favourite spot amongst families and surfers, this sheltered beach is a short walk from Newquay town centre and can get a little crowded in summer. Access onto Talcarne Beach is via a series of steps in the cliff and there are lots of amenities nearby, including shops, sports equipment hire, cafes and more. For extra peace of mind, life guards are on duty in the summer months.

Nearest walk

St Newlyn East and Lappa Valley (1 ¼ miles)

A walk of just over three and a half miles, brought to you courtesy of iwalkcornwall.co.uk. Park in the village hall car park and head through the Lappa Vally woodland. Check out the website for full directions and other walks in the area.

Nearest town

Newquay (4 miles)

Arguably the liveliest town on the north coast, Newquay caters for young revellers and families alike. Great surfing, lots of busy pubs and cafes and a hub for surf lifestyle shopping.

Great Day Out!

We had a great time at The Lappa Valley Steam Railway and would definitely return. Our toddler loved all the different train rides you could go on, all the different play areas and going out on the lake in a canoe. There were also lots of lovely spots you can have a picnic.

A steamy day out

This venue is a great way for would-be engine drivers to spend a day out when the weather is less than beach-worthy.

A tad expensive for a family, but well run and clean.

Great for children, 3 miniature railways and plenty of space to run and play.

The Eden Project (13 miles)

Be transported to faraway lands at the wonderful Eden Project. An educational charity and social enterprise, the Eden Project teaches visitors all about global environments and the importance of sustainability. Get lost in the tropics before stopping in the Med, who knows where your day could take you.

Worth a visit

Worth a visit but look out for discount codes or vouchers as can be expensive to get in but ticket valid for a year.
Visited a few years ago so wanted to revisit to see what had changed or improved. The plants in the domes have grown in to good sized plants. A few more sculptures & places to eat.

Great for families

We've been several times and always had fun. You can get annual tickets when you gift aid your entry which is very worthwhile as it isn't cheap. Went twice over Easter week once going in as it opened and enjoying the biomes in the pouring rain! Core building also great for kids and not as busy as biomes. We went again later in the day another day and discovered that you can have an evening meal in the Mediterranean biome midweek from Easter to October which was a lovely treat and then they give you a lift back up the hill afterwards! Staying til it closes gives you a quieter time too!

A fun day at Eden

Myself and my two children (aged 4 and 7) visited Eden Project during the school holidays. We had a great day out which was enjoyed by all. The Biomes were busy at times but there was plenty of little hideaway places outside to get away from the crowd and recharge the batteries. We took our own picnic so don't know about pricing / food of the onsite eateries but I can say that the ice creams were lovely and in my opinion great value at £2 each.

September 2012

We went on a rainy day in the summer hols and understandably everyone else had the same idea so it was packed. It was nice to see the iconic biomes and interesting to look round but we thought it was very expensive for what it was - £60 for 4 of us plus we ate there so an extra £40 for that. We also seemed to spend a lot of time queuing for food, to look round the biomes, for the park and ride etc . We would go back but perhaps out of season to have chance to explore fully. We'd also look round for cheaper tickets!!

August 2012

Have wanted to visit here for many years. It was quite interesting, the Biomes were amazing to look at from the outside. We bought tickets from the tourist information centre before we visited which they sell at discounted prices and also went after 3.30pm when entrance is less. The cakes in the cafe were all a bit stale, at nearly £40 for a piece of cake and a drink for 7 of us we thought they would be lovely and were not so good. Maybe it was a bad day for cake. Glad to have visited, would probably only go once.

good value with stores vouchers....

Visited for the first time 10 years ago, and of course in 10 years it HAS changed...more grown up, but we remarked to each other many times that it didn't feel as "magical" as the first time we wound our way down to the domes. The large 'flags' have gone that marked the way down the paths.....perhaps that was it? entrance was £23 each for adults & £9.50 each for kids....So to be honest we really wouldn't have visited had it not been for a certain store voucher scheme that meant we payed £5 each and the kids £2.50 each ...so we did treat ourselves to lunch..£5 for most mains with salad or new potatoes....YUMMY, filling & VERY good value, with free pitchers of water on the tables and help yourself mugs hang above - all very handy. Plenty to see and do although our kids sped around the place and ended up where they REALLY wanted to be..in the shop. A great day out though , as they slept like logs on the way home!

Mrs Marsh April 2012

What a wonderful way to spend a day. The weather was perfect for us, but that didn't matter as it would be okay on a poor day at Eden. It was early in the year when we visited but still plenty to see and do.
Had lunch there and it was very good value for money.
We will be back!

We felt that £20 per adult was a lot to pay, yes there was plenty to see; however, on a wet, cold, windy day walking the outside paths was not great.The two domes well worth seeing, but again not worth £40. We came away saying to each other that we felt the Eden Project to be a great Educational Centre for children, schools and colleges to visit, there were other gardens we visited in Cornwall we felt much better value.

There aren't may concert venues where there are no queues for the loo or the bar! A great venue with staff who actually smile - and if you don't like the band you can always wander around a biome (or two).

The Eden Project really is somewhere very special. Leave loads of time to look around and I would recommend staying for the evening as this is when the place really comes alive. The lighting and scenery in the evening has to been seen to be believed, it’s so beautiful.

A great day out with loads to do for all ages. In winter, skating on the ice rink is great fun and the hot, tropical Biome is a great antedote for the winter blues. There's lots of delicious food to choose from in the cafes and restaurants too.

Fabulous day out

The biomes are amazing, and the educational centre is interesting too. Watch the film on the making of Eden. It's a good couple of hours long but worth it. With ice skating and gigs playing at this exciting venue too it makes a good day out for all the family.

Eden Sessions and Biomes

My trip to The Eden Project was amazing. I visited in the summer to see a band and included in the ticket was access to the rest of the grounds; we went early and took a trip around the Biomes before the gig started. The sound quality from the open-air gig was fantastic, I would definitely recommend going if you get the chance (but remember tickets sell out fast!).

Plants and gigs!

A visit to the Eden Project is a must. The biomes which house the plants from all over the world are amazing! And if you get chance to see a gig then it will be an experience you will not forget - tickets are often sold out!

The Hidden Hut (13 miles)

A beach cafe in the most rustic sense - a beachside shed with some outdoor seating. It is a National Trust-owned hut, but run by a local couple who provide 'Feast Nights' - now made famous by their appearance on ITV's 'Cornwall with Caroline Quentin'. You need to buy tickets, but the hut is generally open to everyone, except during the winter, so check times on their Web site.

Splendid food - some fusion inspired and some more typical local Cornish. Great atmosphere. Also they have now a great Hidden Hut cookbook. Such a happy mix of photos and recipes!

Being relatively local to the area, we felt it was time to see if this often-mentioned beach cafe lived up to it's reputation....and it did! On a sunny August Sunday, the beach was busy and so was the Hidden Hut. Be prepared to queue - for quite a while - but once you've selected which of the mouthwatering options to go for, you've plenty of choice of places to sit and enjoy the really well cooked food and the amazing location. No doubt this will be the first of many visits to come!

Stunning place for a delicious lunch! Pricey but great quality. Locally sourced and freshly made. Busy on Bank holidays but worth the queue. Soups are always fabulous as are the pasties, pulled pork baps and sausage rolls. We were lucky enough to get tickets for a feast night once and it was a most memorable and special event.

Trerice by Candlelight

An idea the National Trust should adopt for every area!
Friday nights in March and October Trerice is lit by flickering candles (not real ones obviously, health and safety would have a fit) and open from 6pm. Such a great idea, and very atmospheric. Gardens quite spooky which is good. Highly recommended.

Trerice, National Trust historic house & garden, near Newquay - 5 stars. Fascinating historic house and garden, very visitor friendly (especially for families/children) - not as well known as other NT properties in the area but should not be overlooked!

The Lost Gardens of Heligan (12 miles)

A true secret garden nearly lost to the ravages of time, the Lost Gardens of Heligan open a door to a magical world. Stroll underneath towering green canopies, past pretty pools surrounded by flowers and view all manner of weird and wonderful plants and shrubs. There's no time for dithering; visit the gardens and see what beauty awaits.

A hit with all the family!

A great day out! The gardens, shop and tearooms had a really upmarket feel about it. Every aspect of the gardens has been put together with real love and devotion. My 3 year old daughter's favourite bit was the Jungle - she loved running down all the boardwalks. It really felt like something from Jurassic Park. A hard walk back up the hill though - especially carrying our 1 year old toddler! My husband's favourite part was the ice cream at the teashop, and mine was the impressive vegetable garden. (Forgot to mention that my daughter cried when she discovered there were no melons growing at this particular time of the year - So that for her was a real show-stopper!!) Would recommend although with caution to wheelchair users - Some of the terrain is quite tricky.
