Cornwall is a magical place to visit any time of year: in fact, when we were not tied to school holidays we loved visiting out of season. Each takes on its own personality, from sunny beach days and ice cream, to brisk walks, log fires and hot chocolate. So if you’re lucky enough to be able to take your little ones on a family break outside of the peak season why not try the Baby and Toddler Holidays at Sands Resort Hotel and Spa in Cornwall.
The hotel sits majestically on a cliff overlooking the sea between Newquay and Padstow. It offers a wonderful base from which to explore the Cornish villages and family-friendly attractions or even just to chill and enjoy the beach, sea views and facilities at the hotel. At off peak times during the year their special three-night baby and toddler breaks are perfect for a little family time away.
The nearest beach is just a 5/10 minute walk depending on toddler speed and Holiday Tots guests receive a complimentary bottle of wine when mentioning ‘Holiday Tots’ when booking.
The Malcolm family has been running the hotel for over 40 years and welcomes families with open arms. It’s easy to see why Sands Resort won TripAdvisor’s Travellers Choice Award for the past five years as one of ‘The Top Family Hotels in the UK’.
Baby and toddler holidays at Sands Resort are available on various dates from 23rdApril through to 24thNovember (excluding school holidays) from £294 for two nights. Prices depend on dates, weekend supplements and ages and number of children.
Included in these baby and toddler breaks:
3 nights’ accommodation in a Country View Suite with balcony (cot can be added FOC)
Hot and cold breakfast buffet
£30 voucher to spend on extras
Complimentary daily morning childcare session
Complimentary 3 course dinner on one night
There is a soft play area, games room, kid’s clubs (Ofsted approved) and a spa for the grownups. In the hotel grounds you will find tennis, crazy golf, an outdoor pool with toddler splash area (during summer) and two play grounds plus a couple of bouncy castles!
If you want to travel light the hotel can also supply pushchairs, kiddie carriers, bottle warmers and sterilisers and a baby listening service as well as babysitting. And for a bit of offsite fun the hotel offers buckets and spades, wet suits and bodyboards to hire.
