Spend long afternoons on warm sand, knowing that food awaits back up the hill. And packing can be light, as we have buggies, bottle warmers and more to hand.
Family dining at the Wild Café
Food for when all are peckish
Our clifftop kitchen always prefers to cook everything from scratch. Summer squash curries, thickly-crusted pies, bright seasonal salads. We’re about the kind of natural, nourishing cooking that leaves you knowing you’ve given your body something good. You’ll also find plenty of sturdy high chairs to borrow, alongside a strong stock of unbreakable plastic bowls, cups and cutlery.
And each morning, an artisan bakery breakfast will be available for you to enjoy together; as an example, each basket includes a selection of fruit, sweet pastries and a savoury option, granola and cereal as well as fruit juice and coffee and tea.
Younger eaters also welcome at The Herring in the early evening.
Childcare & babylistening
Time together, time to yourselves
We are no longer offering child care services at Bedruthan; however we still know that sometimes grown-ups may want some time just to themselves. When that moment comes, we recommend trying our intimate Herring restaurant’s new menu or time in our sea-view spa.
To help you keep an eye on the young ones while you’re eating, we’ve partnered with the babysitters at the Parent & Child Nanny Agency - their registered babysitters have all been checked with DBS Enhanced Disclosure and are trained in paediatric first aid. We ask that you organising any babysitting with the agency directly before heading to Bedruthan.
We also have complimentary baby listening available.
Calling all adventurers
Discover a natural playground for kids of all ages. There's plenty to do in and around the hotel and even more just a short stroll or drive away...
Stay here & play
Our indoor soft play area has now closed; however around the grounds there’s an outdoor area for children to explore, an assault course to conquer and a trampoline to bounce on. Our extensive gardens make a beautiful location to run about and discover the abundant wildlife that calls our coastal hideaway their home.
The large meadow overlooking the sea also makes the perfect place for our range of lawn games including giant Jenga and croquet. And don’t forget our indoor and outdoor swimming pools and tennis courts - adventure’s only ever a quick sprint away.
On rainy days, retreat to our indoor cinema room to re-discover old classics or challenge each other with the Xbox console, or simply hunker down together with blankets, hot chocolates, books and board games.
A natural playground
From here, the wide Mawgan Porth beach is just a short stroll down a sandy path away. Discover rock pools or learn to surf with a surf school like Kingsurf. From there you’ll soon come across the South West Coast Path - ramble north for Bedruthan Steps, Booby’s Bay and the lighthouse at Trevose Head or go south to Watergate Bay and Newquay. And just around the corner is Carnewas, a Dark Sky Discovery Site perfect for evening stargazing with budding astronauts.
And when you return back up the hill, you’ll find plenty more to do.
Basing yourself at Bedruthan is perfect for exploring the surrounding areas. Nestled in the quiet fringes between the popular towns of Padstow and Newquay, there’s plenty to do for all ages. Enjoy a cycle trip along the old railway line of the Camel Trail, have an unforgettable experience at the world-famous Eden Project or even day trip further afield in St Ives, Newlyn, Falmouth and Lands End.
