Family time at Bedruthan

What to expect

Time together, time to yourselves

We'd like to think that after all this time we have perfected our family experience for guests staying with us as well as for those who are not. We understand the importance of having fun together but also the need to have a little time to yourself. Our team on site have developed an array of family experiences that hopefully ticks all of the boxes you need for a restful break or day out.

Under 5s

The Play Space Creche

We understand that sometimes grown-ups may want some time just to themselves. Our Play Space Creche has been created with that in mind.

Here at the Play Space your children will enjoy a two hour session with our wonderful creche team. Our emphasis is on the fun whilst sneakily encouraging their learning, and developmental growth through child led exploration. We will play, create, sing, and dance and wind down with some wonderful stories! Your children will be in the safe hands of our Enhanced DBS team and you will have some much needed time to relax and unwind ... after-all you are all on holiday!

Our creche is only available to guests who are staying with us.
Once you have booked your stay you will be sent a link to book your Play Space sessions online.

For children 5 and over we recommend booking into our Kids Club sessions which are guided action packed creative session too. (Kids clubs are available throughout the school holidays and daily crafts run all years round are available for anyone staying or not staying with us)


Family arts and crafts

We have an exciting daily programme of workshops, classes and artist-led sessions. For families, these events help at getting everyone involved. Do something different together and learn something new. On our schedule you'll find messy play, canvas painting, lino printing, clay coiled pots and more. Our focus is on having fun and creating memories.

Our Crafts are open to everyone and can be booked online.


Play, swim and explore

Bedruthan is home to Jungle Tumble, our very own soft play area, the perfect place for children to burn off some energy on rain days. We even have sofas for grown ups, so you can chill out while the kiddies entertain themselves. Jungle Tumble is available for our overnight guests to use or those joining us for lunch and dinner or an event. And don’t forget our indoor and outdoor swimming pools and tennis courts - adventure’s only ever a quick sprint away. On drizzly days, retreat to our indoor cinema room for family classics or challenge each other with the games console, or simply hunker down together with blankets, hot chocolates, and board games.

Food & Drink

Fabulous food for peckish people

Our clifftop kitchen always prefers to cook from scratch; Summer squash curries, thickly-crusted pies and bright seasonal salads. We love the kind of natural, nourishing cooking that gives little legs the energy to go again. You’ll also find plenty of sturdy high chairs to borrow, alongside a strong stock of unbreakable plastic bowls, cups and cutlery. With a hearty artisan bakery breakfast, there is something to fill all tummies before a morning of fun-filled memory making.

From 9.30am daily our bakery opens, serving up cakes, pastries, sarnies, coffees, milkshakes and more. Perfect for refueling before the next adventure.

From 2pm we have afternoon tea, including a perfectly sized kids tea.

Our Wild Cafe opens for dinner at 5pm.
