PLACES OF INTEREST
Prussia Cover – Cornwall Prussia Cove owes its romantic name to John Carter who lived here, one of England’s most successful and notorious smugglers in the later 18th Century. As a boy playing soldiers with his brothers Harry, Charles, James and Roger, John would pretend to be the heroic contemporary Frederick the Great, King of Prussia. It seems John Carter was equally charismatic and his nickname rechristened the cove, or rather the area, since no one cove is actually called Prussia Cove.
Lost Gardens Of Heligan – Cornwall Lovingly restored you will be amazed at the diversity of these incredible gardens.
The Colonial, Tolcarne Beach, Newquay, Cornwall Offering a stunning and relaxed colonial style this beach bar and restaurant serves simple and great food with a twist rooted in authentic flavours and using freshest ingredients. Whilst enjoying the stunning sea view take the time to quench your thirst with their signature rum cocktails, served up with a generous sprinkling of friendly beach side service and of course sunsets to write homeabout.
The Stable, Pizza, Pies & Cider One of the most scenic Stable with breathtaking, panoramic views over one of Britain’s most famous beaches, Fistral Beach, where you can watch the surf from the balcony or nestle beside the log fire inside and catch the dramatic winter storms. A truly stunning location with an abundance of fine local produce and a plentiful supply of cider.
The Concho Lounge, Newquay, Cornwall You don’t have to go to far to enjoy a chilled, family & dog friendly environment, as the Concho Lounge is located right in the heart of the action, on the pedestrian shopping bit right in the centre of Newquay.
No many people know this either, but the rather handsome historic old building just happened to supply the whole of Newquay with water from its well. Yes, really.
You will find a fantastic range of food and drinks (including full kids, gluten free and vegan menus) in the really relaxed, welcoming space running across two floors and out into a huge sun trap of a courtyard at the back. Definitely worth a visit.
