Destination Cornwall

Back to Blog

King of the ‘Stay-cation’, Cornwall has been voted the top British tourist destination for the last 7 years running, but the thought of 5-6 hours trapped on the M5 can be a little too much for some. With Flybe’s daily service to Cornwall Airport Newquay though, you can reach the Cornish coast in just an hour’s flight time from Birmingham International.

So, with the summer months nearly upon us, we have some great tips on how to plan your Cornish Getaway.

Getting there

Flybe operates a daily service to Newquay, with weekday flights departing Birmingham at 10am, so you’ll be basking in the Cornish sunshine before it’s time for lunch! Even if you’re just after a quick weekend break, with flights scheduled every day until the end of October you can plan your trip to suit you, using this flexibility to maximise your time and spend it enjoying your holiday! Prices start from £24.99 one way.

Where to stay?

There are a number of great hotels within a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport. If you are travelling with the family try the Watergate Bay Hotel or the Bedruthan Hotel, or if it’s some spa time or adult only peace you’re looking for, the Headland Hotel or The Scarlet might fit the bill. 

For a foodie experience try The Seafood Restaurant in Padstow (a Rick Stein restaurant with rooms) or why not hire a car and head a little further afield to the Polurrian Bay Hotel in Mullion, with a restaurant championing local produce and also close to the growing foodie Mecca of Porthleven and access to the stunning coastline of The Lizard peninsula. 

Cornwall has a great range of self-catered, B&B and Hotel accommodation for every budget, see VisitCornwall.com for more options.

What to do?

There are some spectacular tropical and ornamental gardens to visit such as Trebah, near Falmouth or the Lost Garden of Heligan in Mevagissey. Relax as you make your way around the spectacular grounds and lose yourself among the flowers. For families looking for fun there are many great attractions across Cornwall, from the Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay, to the spectacular Eden Project and Flambard’s family theme-park in Helston. 

But for a truly Cornish experience, nothing quite beats a long walk on the beach, filling your lungs with the refreshing, cool sea air before making your way back to a comfy bed and sleeping more soundly than you thought possible.

When to go?

It’s fantastic for whisking the family off on their summer holidays to enjoy the sun, sea and sand of the south. June and July are usually the best months for weather, although September-October is highly recommended for couples or anyone not tied to the school holiday calendar. The weather at this time is almost as good as in summer and you’ll be able to really appreciate the beauty of Cornwall when it’s a little quieter…
