3 NIGHTS CORNWALL BY TRAIN FOR £375PP
Cornwall, United Kingdom
We’ve teamed up with Byway Travel to bring you an overstuffed pasty of beaches, cliffs, and sustainable eats…😋
You’ll be heading to Cornwall (by train from Paddington) to stay by the sea in a Penzance pad for £375pp 🚂 Grab a mate, that price is based on two people travelling. You’ll spend your days sinking local brews at pirate pubs and exploring ancient tidal islands.
Want to switch things up? These guys are more flexible than Sven, your vinyasa yoga instructor. They can customise this trip to suit you. Pick dates of your choice from September onwards 🧘
Cornwall, eh?Pasties, cream teas, and Poldark. Cornwall’s a tasty snack that punches well above its weight 🥊
Miles of beaches twist round fishing villages where crumbly pubs and craggy cliffs live and underwater sea caves wait to be explored 🐠 Choose fresh fish in a boujee St Ives restaurant or take your pasty to the beach.
Come evening, you'll find the locals hanging out harbourside with a local cider or hitting the surf... Yep, you're officially living in a North Face ad.
The Route🦀 Your journey begins at London Paddington. Hop on the train to Penzance and whizz past Nat Geo scenery for the next 5 hours.
🦀 Arrive at Penzance where you’ll be staying for the next three nights. Psst! Your accommodation will be handpicked just for you. That means you can choose a town or countryside location.
🦀 This is the gateway to West Cornwall. Day trip your way through St Ives, Land’s End, and St Michael’s Mount.
🦀 After 3 nights you’ll catch a train back to London Paddington. Simples.
What will I do?Your base is Penzance where seafood restaurants and pirate-themed pubs shack up together 🦜 Start at the seafront where you can take a dip in the seawater pool and then stroll along Chapel Street for mid-century architecture and cosy art shops. Stop into The Turk's Head for a swift half, it’s where smugglers used to hide in secret tunnels.
You’re perfectly placed for a bunch of day trips. Catch the bus to Marazion where you can scramble across the beach to St Michael's Mount. This pocket-sized island has a crumbly medieval castle and dreamy sub-tropical gardens. You’ll want to tick off Land's End too. You can get here on the Atlantic Coastliner Bus. Spend a day spotting dolphins from the South West Coast Path and working on your Oscars acceptance speech at the open-air Minack Theatre.
Finally, head to St Ives for the day. You’ll need to look for the woman in a shell bikini with a fish for a head and a doughnut around her waist... You’ve found Yallah Kiosk, ideal for morning brews overlooking the beach 🏖 We like One Fish Street for evening eats. These guys do pretty small plates with ingredients sourced from artisan growers. Finish your day at The Searoom for gin cocktails by the harbour.
