Hello from a very cold Cornwall. Buy the 'West Briton' when you arrive and look in the What's On pages. I've just spotted a 'grand opening' of a 'living aircraft museum' at St Mawgan near Newquay, Truro Festival, various Easter egg hunts, Oyster gathering local food harvest at Flushing,

The Mineral Tramway Trail is from Portreath to Devoran and is suitable for families, if you google it there is lots of information but here is one to get you started.

Hello again from a still cold and windy Cornwall. You could try Tehidy Woods, a large wooded area with lakes and birds and squirrels and lots of nice walks, but a bit sheltered, very near Portreath.

You don't mention the ages of your children but if they are very young there is a soft play place called Snappies at Bridge, between Portreath and Redruth.

If you want sand but it is too cold or windy for an open beach, you could head for Gwithian, on the coast road from Portreath to Hayle where there are some brilliant sand dunes which are a bit sheltered from the worst of the wind.

Have a nice break whatever the weather

Paradise Park at Hayle is interesting if you like parrots and birds of prey. Don't miss penguin feeding time because children can go in and help. The flying display is excellent (not sure if it's on yet). There is also a very good indoor play area. Sometimes there are very good local pasties in the cafe or the pub next door used to do an excellent pint and lunch (not been in for a while).
