Stay with us or explore attractions in Cornwall this February Half Term. Here are some of our suggestions, so that your kids can really make the most of their week of freedom from the classroom.
1.) There are lots of fabulous free activities to enjoy on Bedruthan’s doorstep. Children can burn off a bit of their youthful exuberance running around on our empty beaches, explore the rock pools and discover the good old-fashioned fun of a welly walk along the shoreline.
2.) We offer our own, brilliant and free in-house entertainment programme at the hotel and you can view a sample programme here to get an idea of what’s in store. Expect lots of fun, family craft activities and games!
3.) Explore Lanhydrock house, a Victorian country estate not far from Bedruthan with enticing gardens, ancient woodlands and lots of space for families to run, play and picnic. There are off-road cycle trails too with special routes for facilities and novice riders and it’s easy to hire bikes there.
4.) For little explorers, Eden Project is putting on a new and exotic challenge which will involve ‘visiting’ five continents in just one day – without ever having to leave Cornwall! From coming face to face with their magnificent polar bear friend to flamenco workshops and carnival inspired fun, this adventure promises to be an exciting one.
5.) Explore the Cornish Alps – the iconic clay mountains near St Austell – with a visit to Wheal Martyn Museum and Country Park. The museum is a time-machine ready to transport you back to Victorian England, where you can discover what life was really like for the children who worked at the pits. The museum is set within 26 acres of wonderful woodland and offers vintage vehicles, a woodland play area and exciting nature trails to explore.
6.) Be a Tudor for a day at Pendennis Castle and discover what life was like at Henry VIII’s mighty fortress. The castle’s Discovery Centre allows visitors to explore the fascinating history of the castle, complete with interactive displays and activities and an exhibit on Tudor battles. There are also many medieval re-enactments staged at Pendennis.
