This very child-friendly hotel has seven acres of grounds leading down to the beach to romp around in; for rainy days, there is a small games room that features a PlayStation. There's also a library with books and board games. There are beautiful coastal paths to walk; nearby family-friendly attractions include the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Falmouth's Maritime Museum. You could also try surfing at Newquay.
Deliciously healthy early suppers are served for children (£10 each), featuring fresh fish and seasonal produce – 'not a chicken nugget in sight' is their motto. The restaurant can also pack you hamper of tasty treats to take with you and enjoy on the beach (or wherever).
