Building sandcastles on the beach, flying over The Eden Project on the SkyWire, cycling the Camel Trail, or canoeing down the local Cornish waterways. Whatever activity your children favour, Cornwall has it all.
Sandcastles in the sand
With 80% of Cornwall surrounded by the sea, Cornwall is destined to have some of the best beaches in the world! A few of the best from the Good Beach Guide recommended 2014 are Porthminster Beach - St Ives, Mother Ivey’s Bay – Padstow, Summerleaze Beach – Bude and Polurrian Cove Beach – Mullion. Plenty of golden sand to choose from. Don’t forget if you’re taking the dog (they are family after all!), there are restrictions in place on many Cornwall beaches.
Got the Hump!
Cycle it, walk it, run it, by horseback or get your skates on. Whichever way you wish to see Cornwall’s 18 mile Camel Trail, the beautiful Cornwall countryside is worth the visit. You don’t have to do the whole trail in one go. Why not take a break at one of the charming Cornish towns en-route. Padstow – home to Rick Stein’s ‘Seafood Restaurant’ is the beginning or the end of the trail. Wadebridge, 5.5 miles (8.8 km) from Padstow would be a nice spot for a cream tea. Or if Bodmin’s historic past entices you to visit its monastery, it is a further 5.75 miles (9.25 km) from Wadebridge.
