Putting luxury into adventure


A bespoke luxury adventure holiday service is launching in Cornwall.

The Cornwall Adventure Butler Concierge Service will start later this month and comes from luxury adventure holiday specialist AdventureTemples.

While the Bodmin-based company has been offering luxury adventure holidays around the world since 2009, this is the first time it has extended its activity breaks into the UK.

Guests will stay in hand-picked luxury cottages, boutique hotels or and B&B’s, and can choose from a wide range of over 90 activity sessions, delivered either one-on-one or in small groups.

Steve Kessell, from VisitCornwall, said: “I am thrilled AdventureTemples have decided to launch their unique service in Cornwall; it helps both the busy B&B, hotel and holiday home owners provide more for their guests and increases business for the hundreds of passionate activity service providers who showcase the best of our region, making Cornwall such a fantastic place to take a holiday.”

The Adventure Butler Service will be available in 500 locations in Cornwall this season, and is set to expand to cover over 500 more, in Devon and Dorset, by the summer of 2013.

The pioneers of AdventureTemples are Rob and Nadia Pendleton, a former London based business transformation expert and a duty manager of a multi-Michelin-star restaurant group and published food writer, respectively.

They left the rat-race to follow their passion and return to Rob’s childhood home of Cornwall.
