Cottages for the whole family to get together
Finding space to fit the whole family on holiday can be tricky. But at Old Lanwarnick we have family-friendly holiday cottages that can be adapted to suit the sleeping arrangements you need. So, you can take everyone away with ease.
And for bigger families, you can book multiple cottages together in any combination – meaning no matter how big your family, you can have a Cornish holiday to remember for anything between 2 and 25 people! And with outside dining options to fit everyone together at once, your summer celebrations will go down in family history.
Everything you need to take your baby or toddler on holiday
We know how you feel. You want to go away with your baby or toddler and make happy memories as a family. But the list of what you need to pack is intimidating, to say the least. That’s why we provide all the essentials in our family-friendly holiday cottages. With travel cots, high chairs, bed guards, plastic tableware and more all available on request, you can set off with ease, knowing the main things are crossed off your list. Plus, with stair gates in all our cottages, and fire guards around our fires, we’ve put the safety of your little ones first.
Things to do for all the family
With grandparents and toddlers and everyone in between, finding activities on holiday to suit the whole family can be hard. At Old Lanwarnick, we have lots to do on site for kids from 1 to 100, so why not try these things, and build happy memories together as a family?
A walk on the wild side
Everyone loves to reconnect with their wild side. And where better to do that than among nature? Luckily we have tons right here on our doorstep. Why not head down to our private woods to explore the Woodland Walk? See kids smile as they stomp among the leaves, clamber over mossy tree trunks, discover patches of pretty wildflowers, listen out for birdsong, spot lambs in the neighbouring fields, and hunt for the Cornish faeries hidden among the trees.
A restful spot to stop and play
After all that walking, parents and grandparents will want somewhere to sit down. Why not find one of our many spots where children can play to their heart’s content, with seats so adults can rest their weary legs in the sun?
Our newly built wooden swing set takes in the views across the whole valley. And a shallow paddling area fed by a natural spring provides somewhere to cool off on hot sunny days. Or why not take your den building kit – received with all summer bookings – to the old quarry in the fields? On this safe, flat patch of grass, children can let their imagination run free while building forts to fight off giants and other mythical creatures, before gathering triumphant at the picnic tables to have lunch all together as a family.
A game for everyone
It’s not just the little ones who get to let loose and play at Old Lanwarnick. If you’re feeling left out, why not find a spot in one of our many open fields to have a football match or see how far you can throw a frisbee? You can even bring the whole family together for a game of rounders than will soon get Grandmas, Granddads and teenagers alike fighting for the winning trophy!
And lots more..
Whether it’s meeting the chickens and ducks and hunting for freshly-laid eggs, raiding the board game library and crowning the holiday’s Monopoly champion, or having a picnic in the gardens while spotting the resident wildlife – you’ll be so amazed at what you can do at Old Lanwarnick you won’t want to leave.
Family friendly places to check out nearby
Cornwall is full of family friendly activities for your holiday. And many of them are just a short drive away from Old Lanwarnick. So you can spend less time in the car, and more time making memories as a family.
Fun on the beach for the whole family
For endless fun for all ages, there are numerous stunning beaches within a 30-minute drive. You’ll find miles of sand to play on, clean water to swim, bodyboard and surf in, and cafes to provide respite and fill little bellies – as well as a chance to eat some all-important Cornish ice cream. Many beaches have lifeguards on duty in the warmer months, so you know children will be safe in the water. And we’ve made you a list of dog friendly beaches too, so the whole family can come along.
Family fun come rain or shine
No one likes it when it rains on holiday. But it can be a chance to discover something a little different, and thankfully there’s still lots to do as a family when the clouds gather over Cornwall. Kids and grandparents alike will love discovering the famous biomes of the Eden Project – with activities for little ones and lots to learn for nature enthusiasts. Bodmin Jail is perfect for lovers of gruesome tales and history buffs. And even teenagers will love Adrenalin Quarry, with an aquapark, go-karts, zip lining, a giant swing, axe throwing and more!
