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. It’s packed full of tried-and-tested suggestions for where to go and what to do in Cornwall with babies and toddlers, so you can be sure of a great day out!
