We have had the most wonderful week away in Cornwall. We were so incredibly lucky with the weather and we made the most of that by getting out and about everyday. There were so many thing to do down there, that I thought I would share our favourite things to do in Cornwall.

We stayed at Coombe Mill – and for anyone looking to stay in Cornwall with kids, I highly recommend Coombe Mill. We stayed in one of their lodges, and it was perfect. The lodge itself was incredible, a spacious upstairs play area filled with toys made my daughter’s stay all the more special.

The lodge itself was amazing and really can see the thought that has been put in to making the best possible space for a family holiday. I will be sharing more about our stay at Coombe Mill next week – so do pop back.

The highlight of our Cornish holiday for my daughter was getting out on Coombe Mill Farm and feeding the animals, she loved the lamb, Lambo and the chickens. She became quite adept at catching chickens by the end of her stay. There were also several play areas and even a fairy forest on the Coombe Mill grounds and lots of grass to play on too. It really was the perfect place for a young child.

Make the most of the coast
We also made the most of the location and managed to visit Tintagel, Bude, St Ives and Padstow during our week away. I just love spending time on the beach and we went on lots of walks, built lots of sandcastles and did lots of shopping is some really great shops. My daughter also had a great scooting about, the hilly coastal path out of Padstow was perfect for her scooter and she picked up quite a lot of speed.Things to do in Cornwall - Padstow

The beach, however, is not so great for scooting, and at one point I thought we would have to replace her scooter. I even found this amazing rainbow team dogz scooter which I know she would love, as rainbows are a big thing at the moment but her current scooter ended up being ok.

Learn something and make a difference – The Eden Project
It’s been many years since I visited The Eden Project, but it was top on our list of things to do during the holiday. After a bit of a late start, due to a flat tire, we made it to The Eden Project just after lunch and spent a fantastic afternoon there.

The biomes were even more incredible than I remembered and the brand new, kid focus permanent exhibit ‘Invisible Worlds’ was amazing. Even as closing time drew near, we didn’t want to leave and there was more than enough to see and do that we could have spent the whole day there.
