The Esplanade Hotel Newquay

Stay and play in Cornwall this October Half Term!

Head to the North Cornish Coast this October half term for a Spooktacular family break in Newquay.

The Esplanade Hotel in Newquay is Cornwall's favourite family beach hotel, located overlooking the famous Fistral Beach in Newquay. The Esplanade Hotel is more than just a place to sleep - it's a place where you can enjoy quality family holidays on the Cornwall coast, splashing about in the heated indoor pool and dining together in our informal family friendly restaurant, Cove where a soft play area is strategically placed adjacent so that you are able to enjoy a glass of wine whilst the kids blow off some holiday-excitement . Our on-site surf school ensures water adventures can be had, with hotel guests receiving a discount on surf lessons in Cornwall.

During October Half term, we've got an awesome array of activities planned to keep the whole family entertained. Take a look at our activity schedule here.
