As we welcome in 2016, the sunny days of July and August can seem like a small eternity away. Jetting off to get some sun might be appealing, but could also cost an arm and a leg. This is where Cornish winter breaks can come to the rescue! Whether it’s an escape from the frosts or floods, a romantic weekend break in Newquay or a family escape, you’ll find plenty to do and some of our best value hotel deals of the year. Here are just some of the reasons why the new year is a great time to visit Newquay.
Entertaining Weekends in Newquay
Whether you’re an avid music fan, a foodie or a surfer, one of the best aspects of Newquay is just how many great things to do, taste and experience there are right through the year. We’ve had an incredibly mild winter for one thing, making surfing a big attraction even if you’re not one of those hardy souls prepared to brave freezing cold seas. Many of our guests love having the pick of local beaches without the crowds.
Should you prefer more urbane entertainment, our nightclubs and live music spots are still well worth a look too. The Woodburner Sessions at Lusty Glaze keep the gigs coming right through the winter, with each Friday evening welcoming another act. Meanwhile, venues such as The Red Lion are also worth keeping an eye on for further live acts and open mic nights in 2016, or try the Lemonrock site for further current gig listings in Cornwall.
Winter Family Breaks and Activities for Kids in Cornwall
Whether youtake a short stroll to find things to do right on our doorstep, or take a short drive, there are plenty of places open year round to keep the kids happy. Don’t say it too loud, but you’ll also often find better prices, shorter queues and a more relaxed atmosphere at all the biggest attractions such as Newquay Zoo and the Blue Reef Aquarium (see our attractions section).
Just a little further, you’ll also find the Eden Project, where there is literally not a dull day in the year when it comes to fun activities and things to see for all the family. It is a fantastic setting to go ice skating, for example, with a rink that remains open right into February 2016. Younger ones will also love the storytelling sessions, while the older teens can find lively interactive exhibitions and showcase events that are not only enjoyable but educational. The site is always worth checking: www.edenproject.com
