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. This year’s fun is all about woodland creatures and offers lots of fun family craft activities and games.
3.) Explore the children’s garden trail at Lanhydrock house, a Victoria country estate not far from Bedruthan with enticing gardens and ancient woodlands. There are off-road cycle trails too with special routes for facilities and novice riders and it’s easy to hire bikes there.
4.) Save an alien at The Eden Project. Puzzle lovers can attempt one of the most perplexing team challenges ever in Eden’s ‘live escape room’. Alien Rescue is an interactive game where players are locked in a room for 45 minutes and have a to solve a variety of puzzles and obstacles to save an alien from extinction. This immersive experience is ideal for families, as well as puzzle and gaming fans.
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.
