Sands Resort Hotel says

We’re a family-friendly hotel that really enjoys having kids of all ages to stay – and we have a great offer for single parents.

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

Stay in a two-room Country View Suite with balcony from only £60 per adult per night, including breakfast buffet, with no single occupancy supplement (not available during the Cornish Easter and Whitsun holidays, October half term and the months of July and August).  Children discounts apply depending on their age.

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.

Four Ofsted-registered children’s clubs run three times a day (year-round for children under 8 years of age) and, in the evenings, we have magicians, clowns and visits from the Blue Reef Aquarium.

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.
