The Cream of Cornish Coasts & Country

Indulge yourself on the Cornish Riviera

Whilst the UK’s weather is so often described at rainy and grey, the Cornish Riviera is its own micro-climate! Enjoying warm temperatures and weeks of sunshine, feel like you’ve been transported to foreign lands on this gentle meander through the quintessentially English countryside.

About this journey

Start your journey at Lanhydrock, a beautiful hotel nestled in the rolling Cornish hills. Travel down to Land’s End, Penzance, famous for being the most south-westerly point of mainland UK.

Not quite far enough? St Michael’s Mount is an imposing castle structure built onto a rock, enjoying some of the most diverse horticulture in the UK, and you’ll also take in the wild legends of Padstow and of course, you’ll get to indulge in a traditional English cream tea -but be sure to spread your jam first!

Day 1

Here is where your adventure begins. You’ll travel along the Dawlish coastline and cross over the world-famous Royal Albert Bridge, designed by Brunel himself. The Cornish Riviera Express evokes childhood memories of steam-powered locomotion, dropping you off at Lanhydrock for a four-night stay.


Day 2

Travel to the southernmost westerly point of the UK today as you take a gentle tour through the Cornish countryside to Penzance, taking in some sightseeing of St Michael’s Mount. The pretty coastal town of St Ives will provide you with both visionary and culinary delights as well as shopping experiences aplenty.


Day 3

Today’s journey boasts some of the prettiest branch lines in Britain. Travel on the Bodmin & Wenford Steam Railway and experience a throwback to times long gone. You’ll stop off at Liskeard and travel on the branch line to Looe estuary for sightseeing along the banjo pier before returning to Lanhydrock through the mystical Bodmin Moore to Bodmin Parkway.

Enjoy a relaxed breakfast at Lanhydrock on your last day. Journey homeward through some of the most spectacular landscapes in Britain.
