Baby friendly holidays

If you come down to Cornwall outside the peak holiday season it’s much quieter than at the height of the summer, which means less time spent queuing and more time for adventures! Cornwall’s mild climate means spring comes earlier, and warm, sunny days often linger until late autumn, making it ideal for days out with babies and toddlers.

Bosinver’s Nanny Pat has been out and about exploring Cornwall with her grandchildren, and she’s put together a free downloadable ebook, Nanny Pat’s Adventures with her recommendations for where to go and what to do in Cornwall with babies and toddlers.

If you’re longing for a return to a slower pace of life, a holiday in Cornwall could be just what you need. Gather the whole family and set off on a trip down memory lane. Make time to rediscover the magic of the simple things in life. Think sandcastle building competitions on the beach, picnics in the dunes and ice creams all round. Bliss…

Heritage & culture

You’ll find traces of the past everywhere you go in Cornwall. There’s lots to explore, from Henry VIII’s castles, St Mawes and Pendennis, which guard the mouth of the Fal Estuary, to historic houses such as Lanhydrock and Trelissick. Or why not follow in the footsteps of the Cornish miners and experience what it’s like underground at Geevor tin mine?
