We know going on holiday whilst the children are still small can be a bit of a tricky task. Being away from home comforts, leaving something important behind and keeping them entertained throughout are common worries for parents, especially when it’s your first time.
What may put your mind to rest is knowing that after running family-friendly breaks for over 60 years, we have all the ingredients for a stress-free and special stay. Spend your days simply relaxing in one of our many quiet areas and have lots of cuddles, enjoy a splash around in the pool or discover fascinating creatures whilst rock pooling on Mawgan Porth beach.
The kids will be so sleepy after a great day of exploration; you can have a guilt-free night off together and enjoy some much-deserved time alone to reconnect or simply have an early night. Find the perfect balance of unwinding and making memories as a family during a wonderful break away. From newborns to pre-schoolers, all ages will be entertained and inspired. You’ll leave with happy children, wondering when you’ll be able to come back. Here are some of the reasons we welcome so many young families, time and time again….
Play to your heart’s content
We appreciate the importance of play during childhood and have plenty of places around the hotel where the children can get lost in their imagination, be carefree and creative. Let the ocean be your backdrop whilst your toddler searches high and low for treasure on the pirate ship in our outdoor play area. When clouds start to gather, retreat inside to our jungle tumble soft play to continue the adventures.
Baby listening service
All parents benefit from a break, so if your child is settled for the night you can make use of our baby listening service, whilst you head down to The Herring restaurant to treat yourselves to a romantic meal. Your monitor links to our reception and enables us to listen into the room. If your child cries or needs you, the team can page you from the restaurant or bar, so you can pop back upstairs.
Expanding minds with activities
We have a variety of activities for children throughout our holiday season from arts and crafts, circus skills, surfing taster sessions, football skills, children’s discos, entertainment and much more! You can read one of our sample activity programmes here.
We offer two hours of free childcare for each day you stay with us, as we know taking time to relax is important when you have young children, in order to give your immune system a boost! The skill set of our childcare team ranges from teachers to nannies. They are all highly qualified, so you’ll have a good chance of being able to switch off for a little while.
Whilst away with the children, we know you’ll cherish time together but there’s also lots the children can do on their own. We’ve created kids’ clubs so they can try new activities, meet friends and be entertained by our childcare team.
Couple time is very important and if a date night is long overdue, we provide a babysitting service so you can head to the spa for a treatment together or just find a quiet space to read a book. A babysitter can be booked from 6pm and can sometimes finish as late as after midnight.
Our family rooms have a clever design so you separate yourselves off and happily watch TV whilst the little ones sleep, thanks to the pull down screen. They’re also well equipped with everything you should need, including a microwave on each floor for you to warm milk.
Free equipment hire
We encourage our guests to use the hotel like their home from home, and all equipment is yours to use so you won’t have to bring it along with you. We have cots, buggies, sterilisers, backpacks, highchairs and more. Check this blog for the full checklist.
Food for all
We serve kid friendly meals that are nutritious and delicious. There will be something for even the fussiest eaters! We can provide wipe clean bowls and bibs and we cater for all dietary requirements. If you want to head out for the day, we can make up packed lunches and have them delivered to your room.
