Forget the typical 18-30s, multi-generational holidays are the new travel trend and The Esplanade Hotel in Newquay is totally tapping into this. During October and November 2016, this uber cool, family-friendly, coastal hotel is offering all guests staying the chance to extend the fun by bringing along the grandparents for free*.
With The Esplanade Hotel overlooking Newquay’s iconic surf beach, Fistral, there are loads of coastal adventures awaiting all members and generations of the family. Rooms start from £80 bed and breakfast, what could be better than some special bonding time on the coast with those that matter the most?
Although traditionally considered a summer destination, Newquay is a sensational place in the autumn. There is nothing more magical than snuggling up with a glass of deep red wine as you enjoy the remainder of the autumn months within the cosy environment of Pebbles Bar or the Ocean View Restaurant. Here is a list of top multigenerational autumn activities here at The Esplanade Hotel:
Beach fun for the kiddies: Charge through the sand dunes to the shore at the famous Fistral Beach. Explore the nooks and crannies of Cornwall’s coast with a low tide rock pool adventure. Creepy crabs and sneaky starfish; swaying seaweed and wriggly worms will delight young seafarers as you uncover marvelous marine life where the land meets the sea.
Take the leap: Don’t wait until the summer to experience the refreshing nature of the sea. Zip into your wetsuit and get ready to plunge into some fun ocean adventures with the on-site Quiksilver Surf School – it’s the ultimate natural high.
Sensual mum/grandma time: Relax and enjoy some much deserved ‘me’ time. Sink into the hot tub, steam up in the sauna and pamper yourself with an indulgent spa treatment at The Esplanade’s sister hotel, the Fistral Beach Hotel and Spa. There is also a 10% discount off treatments for guests.
A wild swim: Immerse yourself in nature with a wonderfully wild swim. Hidden coves, rocky inlets and with the sun sparkling off the sea, a refreshing ocean swim will leave you feeling totally revitalised.
Dog walks: Cornwall is dog friendly all year round as it’s not a holiday without all of the family, even the furry members! The Esplanade welcomes dogs and given its sensational setting, is the perfect place for man and beast to roam and rest. Located on Pentire Headland, enjoy stunning coastal or garden walks with absolutely no crowds. A stone’s throw away from both Fistral and Crantock beaches and also a great place to base if you want to explore the rest of beautiful Cornwall.
For dad and/or granddad:
Become a wild wave warrior, and surf the famous Cornish swell. Quiksilver Surf School offers lessons for all ages and actively encourages multigenerational fun. For the more adventurous, the school also offers coasteering – explore the rocky coastline by climbing, jumping and swimming.
