Join us at this elegant country house hotel situated in the lovely Cornish resort of St. Agnes, offering a traditional atmosphere and congenial company, so highly praised by previous Bluebird customers. A small programme of light evening entertainment is included to brighten your stay and complement an extensive excursions programme. 

Spring comes early to Cornwall and by April the gardens and hedgerows are brim full of colour and life.  This early season break presents a chance to enjoy attractions, dramatic scenery and spectacular coastline without the summer crowds! A tour that was vastly oversubscribed for 2023 and repeated due to popular demand.


MONDAY - Morning departure from Dorset to Launceston with time for lunch. Later call at Jamaica Inn on Bodmin Moor, then on to St Agnes. After settling in dinner is served in the restaurant.

TUESDAY - A wonderful day of sightseeing via Porthleven a popular resort that offers art galleries, shops and tearooms clustered around a pretty harbour. Then to St Ives, whose gaily coloured stone cottages appear to tumble over each other down to the sea. Back at the hotel following your evening dinner you will be entertained by a local talented musician.

WEDNESDAY - Morning visit to Trebah Gardens, a sub-tropical paradise with a stunning coastal backdrop - the result of 160 years of inspired and dedicated creation. A Cornish valley garden bursting with exotic blooms and vibrant tunnels of colour that cascade down to a private beach. This afternoon visit Falmouth, a busy port with charming mix of shops, museums and galleries.
Following dinner a light hearted in-house quiz may entertain you this evening.

THURSDAY - Morning at leisure in pretty little St Agnes. Afternoon visit the the Cornish Gold Centre, an exhibition of Cornish mining based around an ancient tin mill with the ingenious machines and processes that exploited the county's mineral wealth. After dinner this evening there is music and song.
