Cornwall with kids

Cathy's verdict
With kids clubs, activities, baby listening and a spa for weary adults, the Sands Resort Hotel is perfect for single parents looking for child-friendly luxury and a beach on the doorstep. Ideal for discovering the Eden Project, Camel cycle trail and Cornish coastline, the hotel's warm welcome is as impressive as its location.

Sands Resort Hotel says

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

  • bang on the beach
  • exclusive special offer
  • lots of indoor & outdoor activities

With lots of activities, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a great entertainment programme and affordable rates, Sands is the perfect hotel for a single parent holiday in Cornwall. Try out all our facilities, meet other families and enjoy some ‘me’ time with a relaxing massage or a book whilst your children are having fun at our Kids’ Clubs.

Our facilities and range of activities cater for all ages and our position on the coast of north Cornwall means that our guests can enjoy cycling the Camel Trail, visit the Eden Project, try tree-surfing or taking the plunge on the UK’s longest zip wire.

We’re used to kids with energy to burn and have filled our six acres of land with football, tennis, climbing walls and adventure play areas – and for little ones, a maze, sandpit, soft play centre and playboat. We have some really engaging arts and crafts sessions most days for children aged four years and over.

Adventure activities include bodyboarding, surfing, SUPing, kayaking and beach volleyball at nearby Tolcarne Beach.

Evening meals (including high tea) can be taken with or without your kids, and there are lots of child-friendly favourites on the menu. We also offer a complimentary baby-listening service in the evenings.
