Sands Resort Hotel

Amanda's verdict
Cornwall is special. It grabs you in a big sandy hug and won’t let go. If you went there on holiday as a child, you’ll want to take your own children there. A genuinely family-friendly hotel, Sands Resort rolls out the red carpet for its younger guests year-round with everything from adventure play areas to children’s clubs to flexible mealtimes and visits from Blue Reef Aquarium.

Sands Resort Hotel says

We’re a family-friendly hotel that really enjoys having kids to stay all year round.

  • high tea for kids
  • ideal for ages 0-8 yrs
  • indoor & outdoor activities

Based on the North Cornwall coast with some of the south west’s best beaches on our doorstep, there’s plenty of outdoor and indoor space, ideal for a safe and relaxing family holiday post-lockdown.

Discover our 600-metre nature trail and make the most of our playgrounds and sports facilities – there’s even an indoor fun fair. Guests can hire bodyboards and wetsuits (free of charge) and head to Porth beach which is only a 5-minute walk away.

We’re used to kids with energy to burn and have filled the six acres of land that surround our hotel with an enchanted maze, bouncy castle, pirate ship, playgrounds, zip wire, football and tennis. On rainy days little guests can enjoy the indoor pool and playground, bounce around in the soft play area or play table tennis and air hockey in the games room.

New for 2020, we introduced arts and crafts sessions for all the family, unsupervised activities for ages four years and over such as pottery, t-shirt design and bird box painting.

Adventure activities include bodyboarding, rock-climbing, power-kiting and coasteering at nearby Watergate Bay and Lusty Glaze.

The choice of accommodation ranges from a double bedroom with cot, to a three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment suite, with a lounge, TVs and DVD. We aim to be as flexible as we can be with mealtimes and accommodation – and we only use two thirds of our bedrooms to allow for the safest possible environment for our guests and staff. Evening meals (including high tea) can be taken with or without your kids and there’s a free baby-listening service.
