10 Reasons to book a staycation in Cornwall this Summer

atlantic-hotel-newquay

The Summer Holidays are here.

Here are 10 reasons why a Staycation in Cornwall is the best choice this Summer…

1: Beaches

Cornwall has over 400 beaches, with 14 beaches in Newquay alone.

Stunning golden sands, crystal clear blue seas, with comparisons of California or the Caribbean, and World-class surf breaks, Cornwall’s beaches rival destinations overseas.

With many beaches patrolled by the RNLI, Cornwall offers a safe environment to enjoy a swim, try out the fantastic watersports on offer, or take a boat trip.

Simple pleasures, such as buying fishing nets, buckets and spades from the local shops, enjoying a picnic (our luxury hampers are nice!) and watching the sunset will make memories forever.

           

 2: Cuisine

Cornwall is England’s Cuisine Capital, with its fresh produce shipped all over the world.

Home to World famous restaurants and celebrity chefs, Cornwall has 1000’s of restaurants, cafes and deli’s to enjoy.

Nothing beats a piping hot Traditional Cornish Pasty overlooking the sea, and of course, England’s favourite Fish and Chips tastes all the better when the fish is freshly caught and enjoyed on the beach. Afternoon Teas have raged into fashion, with Cornish Clotted Cream, and Jam playing it’s the famous role (always Jam first!!)

Locally caught seafood from Newquay Harbour offers delicious fresh Lobster, Crab, Oysters and Mussels, to name just a few- you don’t have to travel abroad to try something new!

Cornwall is also home to many fine wineries and breweries- Skinners, and St Austell Brewery are producing first-class ales and beers, while wineries such as Camel Valley are winning International awards for their wines.

 

3: Travel

Hands down a tank of fuel is cheaper than flights for the family, and with children having to pay for a seat from the age of 2 on most airlines, suddenly many families become priced out when looking at travelling abroad. With rail options, and Cornwall Airport’s range of domestic flights at affordable rates from Manchester, Edinborough, London Gatwick, London Heathrow and Dublin, you can be in Cornwall within an hour.

Listening to “Are we there yet” from the backseat, packing snacks, arguing with the sat nav, and finally arriving right outside your hotel form part of the holiday and family memories.

                                                                                               

 4: Places to visit

With so many places to visit during your stay, the only thing to do is research and prioritise, the World famous Eden Project is an absolute must for first time visitors.

There are also 100’s of theme parks and family friendly days out ensure that little ones are catered for rain or shine, with discounted entry booklets available in our hotel, the hard part will be deciding where to visit.

Tate St Ives, The Minack Theatre, Land’s End, and Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro offer stunning exhibitions and live performances for a family friendly arts and culture fix.

5: Events

Cornwall has a packed programme of events planned this Summer, from music festivals to food and sailing.

Why not team up your summer holiday with Boardmasters Festival in August (check out our photo below by Tim Borrow!) with Headliners Florence and the Machines, The Foals and Wu Tang Clan. At Fistral beach, live surfing, skateboarding and surf village packed with stalls (look out for our Silks Bistro & Champagne Bar stall!) and bars just a short stroll away from our hotel, this event is for all the family and is not to be missed.  Day tickets are available, so that you can enjoy all the music and events and be home to your luxury sea view room within 15 minutes.

For the foodies there are weekly Farmers Markets all over Cornwall and various famous food festivals, including the famous Rock Oyster Festival in July, and Newlyn Fish Festival in August.

Fowey Regatta and Carnival Week is one of Britain’s Premier Sailing Events, with spectacular firework displays, gig racing, live music, and an appearance from the red arrows.

 6: Watersports

How would you like a coasteering lesson? Surf lesson? Stand up paddleboarding? Kayaking? Kayak fishing? White Water Rafting? Jet-skiing? The list is endless, and all available in Cornwall, just steps away from our hotel. Escape Surf School are our go-to for both large group and one on one surf lessons from professional surfers and instructors and top of the range facilities.

7: Accessible for all

Travelling in your own vehicle can be the easiest, and least stressful way for families with members who have disabilities. Being able to travel with everything they need, parking outside the entrance to their accommodation, and avoiding long waits, queues, and vast airports can be worth so much.

With full disabled access and our facilities on the ground floor, the Atlantic Hotel can accommodate any guest’s requests and are happy to make any arrangements necessary in the interest of our customer’s comfort.

Our chefs and waiting staff are allergen trained and can adapt our extensive menu accordingly, we are dog-friendly, with allocated rooms for dogs, and we allow guide dogs in all areas of the hotel.

 8: Cost

The cost of staycation can be far cheaper than a holiday abroad, without the costs of flights per person, airport parking, etc, booking a break on your doorstep is often much cheaper for families. With the Sterling at now 1.15 vs the Euro*, gone are the days when you would make double on your cash exchange. By holidaying in the UK you are actively helping the British Economy and supporting the British Tourism industry.

 9: Wildlife

Cornwall is rich with natural wildlife, and offers a wonderful opportunity to educate, and enjoy nature with your children.

Go Dolphin spotting on a boat trip from Newquay’s Harbour, just minutes away from our hotel, and take snaps of sea birds, sun fish and hope to see pods of dolphins jumping in and out the water.

Rockpooling is fun for all ages with crabs, shrimps, starfish, and lots of species of little fish to catch.

Cornish Seagulls often a little too friendly (hold onto your Patsy with a firm grip!) are an iconic image of Cornwall, and waking to the gulls calling in the mornings will stay with you long after your holiday is over.

 10: Accommodation

 Voted “Modern Luxury Hotel of the Year 2016” the Atlantic Hotel offers 4 star luxury, with first-class facilities.

As soon as you arrive at our private headland the panoramic ocean views will leave you stunned, everywhere you turn, you can see the sea, and our Art Deco theme, with black and white marble flooring, sweeping staircases, and twinkling chandeliers rival any luxury accommodation World wide.

With a friendly welcome from our reception team, who will personally give you a tour and take you to your sea view room, the Atlantic Hotel is family-friendly without compromise, with children’s menus, leisure facilities and friendly staff on hand to help, this is the perfect break for all the family.

Our rooms sell out each and every Summer so book early to avoid disappointment. Give our friendly reservation team a call today and discuss your luxury staycation needs.

dog friendly hotel

Sandy paws welcome – we’re dog-friendly at the Atlantic Hotel

dog friendly hotel

Cornwall and Newquay are a doggie paradise, and with several long, sandy beaches that are dog-friendly year-round right on our doorstep, it hardly seems fair to leave your four-legged friend at home. Great news, when you’re staying at the Atlantic, there’s no need to; dogs, and their well-behaved owners are always welcome.

To make Fido feel at home, we’ve got pet beds and bowls for your room, so you don’t have to pack them, and we’ll have a special doggie goody bag waiting for him when you check-in.

Dogs are welcome throughout the hotel, except Silks Bistro and the breakfast room. (You can always bring Fido with you and dine on the breakfast terrace if he doesn’t like to be left alone – just let us know). And we’ve got extra beds, bowls and treats in Cafe Atlantica, so your pooch can relax whilst you catch up on the papers with a freshly brewed coffee or a crisp, refreshing beer.

With plenty of holes to be dug, beaches to explore and ocean to romp in, plus a comfy bed for when he’s finally exhausted himself, we bet Fido can’t wait to stay with us at the Atlantic Hotel.

Our Celebrity Guest- Austin Armacost

We welcomed Celebrity Big Brother runner up and ALLSTAR Austin Armacost on our VIP Spa Package this month.

Read our exclusive interview on his first impression of Cornwall, his thoughts on our Hotel, and his 2017 plans……

Austin, We hear this has been your first visit to Cornwall, what do you think?

I found it beautiful even though it was a bit of a foggy day. The fresh sea air blew through the windows and rejuvenated me every couple of minutes. Listening to the sea gulls outside the window also just added to the coastal ambiance. The people were also extremely friendly, inviting, and entertaining. 

You certainly deserve a VIP Spa break after such a busy start to the year- what made you choose the Atlantic Hotel?

First and foremost was the price. I am always nervous about finding a “package deal” that seems to have everything you need with an incredible price. However, the Atlantic went above and beyond in all aspects (food, treatment, facilities) and I thought what a wonderful weekend getaway. The Atlantic is much more than just a hotel & spa… You can truly spend the entire day on the property with so many amenities at your fingertips.

As part of your Spa package, you enjoyed lunch in our AA Rosette Restaurant, Silks- what did you order?

We started with the oysters and followed with the belly pork and sea bass pasta. Everything was hot, tasty, and done with it’s own twist. The champagne and wine selection was impressive. The dining room itself also offered a view everywhere you turned and so much natural light. I enjoyed several cocktails throughout the day sitting in different parts of the dining room / bar area. 

We hope our Spa treatment left you relaxed and refreshed, what was the best bit?

I had a full body massage and enjoyed every second and every inch of it. She was calming and relaxing herself and that helped me to relax. Also getting a massage while overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is something I had never done, PRICELESS! Then taking a dip into to the pool and jacuzzi truly helped me get into a “zen zone.” 

Any exciting plans for the year ahead we should know about?

Unfortunately in my business (television) we aren’t always aloud to discuss upcoming projects but you will be seeing me on television again soon. I also am singing with a new film agent in London so may be on the big screen here in the UK sooner than later. In my personal life, my partner and I are headed to America in a few days for him to meet my family for the first time. 

*Big thanks to the entire staff as it was lovely from check in to check out, well done team Atlantic!

Our VIP Spa Break is available until 7th April 2017
