The Great Cornish Food Festival

This exciting food festival is the largest held in Cornwall between 26th and 28th September and takes place in our quaint city of Truro.  Truro is a buzzing little city which is becoming more cosmopolitan by the day, making it the perfect place to host such a prestigious foodie festival which showcases all the great produce that Cornwall has to offer.  Held on the pretty piazza of Lemon Quay in Truro, the Great Cornish Food Festival is a mere 20 minute drive from Newquay, making it a must to visit during your stay with us at The Atlantic.  What a treat to have seaside and city so close. The best of both worlds!

We are hoping to showcase Silks Bistro during the food festival, with our head chef Aaron Janes doing a food presentation based around a couple of Silks’ most popular dishes.  He is already set to present at our very own Newquay Fish Festival on Saturday 13th September at 12 noon, followed by a cooking presentation at Boscastle Food Festival on Saturday 4th October. The Great Cornish Food Festival will see fantastic Cornish chefs entertaining the crowds, pop up Cornish street food stalls and an array of delicious Cornish products on offer including cider, meats, Chocolate, cheese, ales and baked goods.  All produced in Cornwall with love!  This is a great event for the food lovers out there…team it with a delicious dinner in Silks Bistro for the ultimate in foodie heaven.  Click here to book online or just to check out our room rates for these dates.

Fireworks above the hotel on New Years Eve

Newquay Carnival!

Fireworks above the hotel on New Years Eve

If you have little ones, the beginning of July is carnival time and is packed full of quirky events to keep them occupied.  This year’s Newquay carnival kicks off with a pre-carnival weekend on 4th July at 4pm-8pm with stalls, entertainment and a family friendly lobster pot race around Newquay Harbour.  The 5th July is ‘festival day’ on Newquay’s Killacourt green, running from 10 am until 5 pm and pre-empts the main carnival with frivolous entertainment, a children’s fun fair and interesting displays.  Sunday 6th July’s carnival activities are held at Newquay’s hidden gem, Trenance Boating Lake and Gardens where the theme is Pirates!  Time to don your best Pirate garb and enjoy model boat racing followed by a 6 man canoe race!  Starting at 11am and running throughout the day, there will be stalls, a children’s fun fair and a highly tense duck race to boot.

As if that wasn’t enough fun for the little ones, the main Carnival event takes place on 12th July and starts marching through Newquay at 6pm.  It’s a fantastic atmosphere for the children and with The Atlantic Hotel only five minutes’ walk from Newquay town centre, we offer an ideal location for joining in the fun whilst allowing the adults some relaxing peace and quiet after it’s all over.  Check out our availability and rates for those dates if you fancy making the most of Newquay’s Carnival week!

 

The Atlantic Beauty Rooms

We are all set to open up two on-site beauty rooms in mid-July where our qualified beauticians will be offering a range of facials, massage, pedicures and manicures among other favourite treatments.  Relax and indulge in a daily massage followed by a swim, sauna and Jacuzzi in our indoor swimming pool.  We should soon have the treatment and price list available online on our website and Facebook page.  Watch this space for more info on the beauty room, along with all of the lovely treatments available to purchase as presents for your partner or just pure indulgence for yourself!

Newquay’s Coastal Walks

Now that Newquay’s Summer is well and truly here, the coastal paths that run alongside the Atlantic Ocean seem even more appealing than usual!  With a variety of different routes offering stunning scenery and great natural beauty, you can see something new each day with a daily coastal path of your choice.  Start your walk with us here at The Atlantic hotel and walk the Towan Head where you can take in some of Newquay’s heritage such as the old life boat slip and the white lookout hut, whilst grabbing an ice cream on the way and a few rays on the secluded Little Fistral beach…the local’s favourite.  For further afield try (amongst other routes) the Porth Island coastal walk, spotting impressive blowholes and a rich diversity of Cornish wildlife.   With little eateries and pubs scattered at points not far off the coastal paths, this is a great activity for couples who like to make the most of our romantic scenery and Cornish air.  Check out this link for a few different coastal path options.  Book in with us via our website, and look forward to returning to The Atlantic Hotel to relax in luxury after a day of walking.

Boardmasters 2014

Each year the Boardmasters festival gets bigger and better and this year is no exception.  With astounding views of the Atlantic Ocean and an exciting line up of Chase and Status, Snoop Dogg and Bastille playing the main stage this year, this surf based event is a worthy competitor to other larger British festivals.

With the surf competition taking place all week from Monday 4th August through to Friday 8th August and the beach sessions showcasing edgy acts such as Jettblack, Skindred, Marcus McCoan, Sunset Sons and Thomas J Speight on Wednesday 6th August and Thursday 7th August, this weeklong event is definitely one for the diary.  The Surf comp and the Beach Sessions are hosted at Fistral Beach…a 5 minute walk from The Atlantic Hotel.

For true festival chic, forget Glamping and opt to stay in luxury at The Atlantic in the run up and during the weekend Boardmasters Festival which runs from Friday 8th August to Sunday 10th August.  The Atlantic is just a short taxi ride to the stunning festival site at Watergate Bay. You can purchase tickets for the beach sessions and the festival here and book online with us here for the best room rate.
