Whether you want to get away from it all for a rest or if you want an all out activity weekend - we can provide the ideal venue with all the extras to make it special. Minimum Group Size of 8 catered for!

Activity Weekends may be organised to include Climbing, Cycling, Surfing, or in fact any of the activities mentioned on our website!

You may decide you want an all out Surf Dude Weekend and we can provide equipment and lessons for beginners and those that want to improve their technique. Our Activity and Surf weekends will suit all types of groups, mixed or single sex.

Retreat weekends are also popular with fantastic food, gentle exercise (walks or cycling) and a choice of relaxing Aromatherapy Massage etc. These weekends can be as structured or fluid as you wish and often suit a group of ladies wishing to get away from work, family and home for a purely pampered weekend. (see our retreat page)

For all these weekends there is a choice of catering styles from Basic Bed & Breakfast to the Full On Menu (Full cooked breakfast, Homemade or Picnic Style Lunch, Cornish Cream Tea, Four Course Formal Dinner) or any combination in between to suit your budget.

Weekends may run from Thursday Evening to Monday afternoon or anything in between, depending upon availability. Why not stay for a week; ring to enquire regarding our special extended break tariff! Fully Catered Family Activity Holidays are also offered.

Transport may be arranged from Bodmin Parkway Train Station or Newquay Airport, for your entire stay, with drivers and drop off into Newquay or Padstow at night, if required. Minimum group sizes apply.

North #Cornwall has some great spots for #SeaPaddling, the protected south shore is perfect for those just getting to know their boats!
Only in a #Kayak can you navigate into those tight spots to get an up close view of the nature and wildlife in Cornwall's most scenic spots!
After some Michelle Obama arms?? #Kayaking will definitely sort you out! It's great exercise & works all of those upper body muscles.
