Cornwall Plus all set for summer lets

14 June 2019

Cornwall Plus welcomes summer guests to Glasney Rooms and Flats after students have departed for the academic year and reinvests profits back into the campus facilities, benefitting students, staff and visitors.

Every year in July and August, special interest groups from the UK and abroad, as well as family and independent travellers, stay on the picturesque Penryn Campus to take advantage of the unique educational setting, extensive conference and event facilities and rooms, and convenient location to explore Cornwall.

The Cornwall Plus team are getting set for a busy summer with over 30 large groups having confirmed their bookings, including educational conferences, summer schools, sports groups, marine conservationists, cultural and religious groups and more.

The team are gearing up to welcoming our annual residents - National Citizen Service (NCS) summer schools, comprising 15-17 year olds, who will be arriving soon to enjoy a packed programme of educational and fun activities. These programmes aim to raise the aspirations of youths, develop their skills and confidence, as well as giving them lifelong memories of Cornwall.

Many of our special interest groups are repeat residential bookings, testament to the outstanding service and dedicated support provided by the Campus and Commercial Events team.

Cornwall Plus partners with local activity providers to provide quality, good value enriching packages for their group visitors ensuring investment in the local economy.

Our family and independent traveller guests also have a positive impact on the Cornish economy, spending money in local attractions, restaurants, coffee shops, bars and retail outlets. When guests check-in they receive a special Saver Card giving discount to a range of local attractions, food and drink places, shops and businesses.

In preparation for the start of season the team have launched a new website, available in different languages at www.cornwall-plus.co.uk and have recently upgraded their accommodation and event management software – Kinetics, to streamline internal procedures and improve efficiencies, and enable seamless connection with country specific online travel agencies.

Local people are offered a 10% discount off rooms for visiting friends and family. A summer getaway deal for July is also underway with discounted rates on three, four and seven night stays.

Contractors are warmly welcomed.
