How can it be half term already I hear you cry?! It was only Christmas last week! This half of the school term has flown by and next week will see 7 days of finding things for the children to do and praying for good weather (fyi its looking like rain the first few days!). As always Cornwall is a wonderful place for children and there is always something to do come rain or shine for every budget and age.
First stop is of course where to stay if you fancy getting away from it all for a last minute break we have a few houses available; there’s Josiah’s Cottage – a gorgeous house that sleeps 4 and Waggon House next door which sleeps 6-8, both just by Port Isaac – home to ITV Doc Martin and a short distance from the popular Rock, Padstow and historic villages of Tintagel and Boscastle.
Or, if you fancy the South Coast, Badgers and Polwartha House which sleep 5-6 people are situated 400 yards from a country pub near the lovely village of Constantine and a short drive from the popular seaside town of Falmouth.
So you’ve settled into your gorgeous Forgotten Houses cottage, donned the wellies and hoped for dry weather – what to do next? Heres a round up of things to do near these houses:
