Eden Project
Shell:Great day out for all the family. Get transported around the world in the Rainforest and Mediterranean Biomes making sure you check out the cloud bridge...the kids will get wet! You get free entry on your pass for a whole year which is great as every holiday they have different events always fantastic with lots of educational activities for kids. Make sure you try the delicious food in the restaurant where most the home cooked means include produce grown on site!

Shell:If you’re visiting Cornwall book breakfast, lunch or dinner here! Overlooking the stunning Fistral Beach you’ll feel relaxed and will be well looked after. The fish depends on what has been caught that day and the menus change depending on the season. Take a stroll on the beach while you’re there or book a suft lesson then refuel at fifteen after!
Image - Padstow
Shell:A trip to Cornwall isn’t complete without visiting the beautiful harbour town of Padstow. Places to check out... The Padstow Lobster Hatchery where you can see the conservation program of local lobsters! Rick Steins fish & Chips - the best fish and chips you’ll ever eat! Take a boat trip across to Rock or a Seal safari (see other post about this) Enjoy a traditional Cornish Pasty from either The Chough Bakery or The Cornish Bakehouse as they’re the best in my opinion and eat it looking out onto the harbour but be aware of the pesky seagulls!

Flambards Theme Park
Shell:Great family day out! Pay an extra £3 and get a week return pass so makes it better value. Rides for all ages and indoor attractions too if the weathers not great! Definitely check out the Victorian museum very interesting!

Jubilee Pool Penzance
Shell:Definitely worth a visit the Art Deco architecture is stunning and incredible views! Spend the day relaxing pool side and swimming in the sea pool then enjoy crab rolls in the cafe!

Chapel Porth Beach
Shell:Stunning costal line and beautiful cove it’s a must visit summer or winter and you have to get a famous Hedgehog ice cream...if you know you know!

National Trust - Bedruthan Steps
Shell:It’s a long way down but it’s worth it believe me! Spectacular scenery! Bedruthan hotel & Spa is a great place to stay or visit for lunch in the Wild cafe. The spa days are perfect for a little couple time if you get the opportunity!
Image - Kynance Cove
Kynance Cove
Shell:One of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall and maybe the world don’t believe me? Visit and you’ll find out! It’s a bit of a walk down (and back up) so plan a day here!

Cornish Seal Sanctuary
Shell:Love this place! I went 30 years ago as a child and now my kids love it! You also get a free week return with your ticket so go back again! Amazing work for seal conservation. The whole family will have a great day and take a picnic the gardens are beautiful with stunning views!

Trevone Bay
Shell:If you see us say hello as we’re regulars to this stunn blue flag beach. Lifeguards on duty during peak season make this a really family friendly beach. Plenty of rock pools for exploring and the best stonebaked pizzas from the cafe you can take away to eat on the sand looking out to sea!
Image - Constantine Bay
Constantine Bay
Shell:Another of our Cornish hangout spots! Great for coastal walks and sand surfing is the dunes!
Image - Lanhydrock House and Garden
Lanhydrock House and Garden
Shell:Beautiful National Trust set in stunning gardens make this a lovely day out for the family. The house is beautiful and takes you back imagining what it would be like to live there (or is that only me who does that?) Highly recommend! Also a great park for kids and cafes!
Image - St Agnes and Surrounding Area
St Agnes and surrounding area
Shell:St Michaels Mount is such a lovely day out! Get there at low tide to walk across the then catch the boat back at the end of the day as you’ll see the pathway disappear under the ocean! Top tip I do t recommend taking a buggy the cobbles are a nightmare having said that there are places to leave them by the entrance but a carrier is better option if you have it! Beautiful gardens and activity sheets for kids to complete as they go around the house. Highly recommend The Goldolphin Arms on the mainland when you get back!
Image - Padstow Sealife Safaris
Padstow Sealife Safaris
Shell:We booked the hour Safari trip and had the best time! It’s a little scary when you’re going fast across the waves but the kids loved it! Rocco is 5 and Valli is 3 and i would say I wouldn’t take younger than them. We saw seals and lots of different sea birds. You go into caves and around Gulland Rock. Spectacular views and an exhilarating ride! Such great fun if you’re in the local area .

Shell:Great day out for all the family. Highly recommend the full tour where you learn all about the history of Cider making and Healeys farm then get to sample all the fruit juices and ciders at the end! The scones in the cafe are amazing and the kids loved the small farm there too. Take a tractor ride through the orchards and admire the stunning views across Cornwall.

Duchy Of Cornwall Nursery
Shell:Such a lovely place to visit for lunch. Fresh homemade food and daily specials it’s hard to choose but make sure you save room for their delicious cakes! The shop is lovely so many unusual things and a great place for Christmas shopping! The conservatory has such a variety of succulents and cacti I could spend hours and too much money here!
