A lovely treat

We visited Fifteen with our 3yr old and her 78yr old grandma, and both loved the food, setting and attentive but relaxed service. We all enjoyed the fantastic food, with a well-priced children's menu and are glad we booked weeks ahead!

Fantastic Food at Fifteen

We have had excellent food here whether it's lunch or dinner. Do not be put off by the 'taster menu only' for dinner - there is plenty of choice. We would go just for the Italian olives - they are a great start while studying the menu. The atmosphere is very informal and the views are fantastic. The staff are attentive, enthusiatic and clearly well-trained. We would go for the food experience alone.

The open kitchen layout means you can watch your food being prepared, but it's more likely you'll find yourself staring at the stunning views of the coast stretching down towards Newquay. A great setting for some great food - the octopus salad was delicious, as was the chocolate nemesis.

Yummy!

This is a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy with friends and/or family. Lovely lunches or posh nosh in the evening. This restaurant is one not to missed with great views over the beach and within easy reach of Newquay airport. If rice pudding is still on the menu you must try it. It's not the pud as we all know it ......

Bedruthan Steps Beach (4 ½ miles)

Said to be the stepping stones of a giant, the Bedruthan Steps are a series of rock formations soaring from the sea along Cornwall's north coast. Just a few miles from Padstow, the sea stacks are best viewed from the cliffs above Bedruthan beach. Park in the National Trust car park and take a short walk to be treated to spectacular views. The Bedruthan Steps are a sight to behold all throughout the year.

Mr Smith June 2012

We were there in early season and there were very few people on the beach: it felt really wild and pristine. The best time to visit is shortly before low tide, when access to the various parts of the beach is easiest.
Beware: there are 150 (steep) steps going down, but at least double that number coming back up!

Ms Simmonds April 2012

Best cream tea

Walk along the cliffs above Bedruthan steps for stunning views and crashing waves. If the tide is right you can add a walk along the dramatic sandy beach. The tearoom at the National Trust car park at Carnewas served the best cream tea of our holiday - fresh, melt in your mouth scones. Yummy! If you are an NT member the parking is free and right at the cliff edge for starting your walk.

Bedruthan Steps

Probably the most fantastic sandy beach I've been on. Amazing and well worth the climb down. I have Fibromyalgia, a painful muscle/joint condition, but I could not resist going down onto this beach and I was very glad I did. It was overcast when we started the descent but the sun came out for a while. I would imagine the beach would be like paradise on a warm sunny day as it was when overcast!!! There wasn't many people on the beach which added to the feel. Lots of warm pools everywhere, beautiful rocks and little caves. Dramatic and wild. My husband, 21 yr old son and 2 teenage daughters loved it. We had a snack in the lovely tea room at the top that had an extensive menu for such a small cafe and lovely coffee. Really enjoyed the day. It was worth the pain of coming back up, but I did so slowly in my own time. I would definately do it again. It would be very hard for anyone more disabled than me though.

Mrs Thurlby June 2011

Dramatic and beautiful

We visited Bedruthan Steps on a windy and overcast day, parking at the National Trust carpark and following the paths across the heathland to the clifftop. Our 3yr old daughter was just entranced by the rocks and swore that she saw a mermaid...
As the tide was in we didn't climb down the steps, and wouldn't have attempted it with our daughter, but just seeing the amazing rocks and cliffs from the viewing spots at the cliffedge was enough.

Trerice (2 ½ miles)

An Elizabethan manor house with beautiful gardens and many restored rooms to explore inside. Highlights include the ornate fireplaces and ceilings and the traditional orchard containing rare ‘heritage’ varieties of apples and pears.

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!

Newquay Zoo (1 mile)

From African lions to zebras, Cornwall’s award-winning zoo is home to over 300 animals. There's plenty to do, with daily feeding times and talks, a play area, maze, picnic spots, a cafe and, in summer, bbq's by the lake. Young animal lovers can sign up to be a junior zookeeper for the day.

Mrs Darvell July 2014

Newquay Zoo is worth a visit however it is a little on the small side and you do get around quite quickly. However if you take the trail, go around the maze and have lunch/picnic then it does fill a morning/afternoon quite nicely. There are lots of animals for the kids to see and various interesting talks throughout the day. Would recommend the food in the café we had a lovely lunch there.

September 2012

We came here on a damp and drizzly day but the zoo didn't disappoint. It is small but there is a kids trail to do on the way round and interesting talks about the animals. The kids loved that they could pay 50p and feed the penguins!! I would recommend it for a day out but be aware that it isn't big and therefore if you didn't want to spend time doing the trail etc, you could be finished fairly quickly.

Lots to do at Newquay Zoo!

Although comparatively small, this is reflected in the price and there is still plenty to do to make a worthwhile day out. The zoo is well landscaped throughout, with further improvements currently being carried out, making for a lovely walk if nothing else! The animals all looked healthy and were easy to see, and we were given a map, some vouchers and a timetable of the talks/shows upon entry. Considering we went out-of-season, on a very cold February morning, there were at least five feeding times/talks to go and see throughout the day, plenty of picnic benches and a cafe (although the little food stalls dotted around were closed), plus a small shop, packed full of animal-related bits and pieces. All in all, a worthwhile trip out on a budget!

if you've got kids this is a good place to take them if the weather turns. It is quite small but in school hols they put on lots of entertainment and it is generally pretty interesting.

Friendly little zoo, right next to the swimming centre and skate park for those groups with a mix of interests. You won't see the range of animals you expect at the larger zoos, but those that are there are happy and well cared for. You won't see penguins, tapirs, lions and lynx anywhere else in Cornwall!

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!!

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!

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.

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!
