We are coming to Cornwall for a month in the August.
We are a couple with 4 children aged 11,9,and twins aged 3.
We are looking for recommendations for things to do and places to stay, and a general list of do's and don'ts as we have never visited the area before.
At the moment we are considering staying at Holywell Bay (park-dean holidays) for 2 weeks, and a week at either Sun Valley Holiday Park or Pentewan Sands, then perhaps somewhere near St Ives (perhaps Riviere Sands by Haven. These have all been found on-line so any local ideas would be great (and probably cheaper!)
I would really appreciate any views on these places or recommendations on other family- friendly holiday parks or cottages etc. We would like to spend at least 2 weeks very close to the beach, and would also like to spend a week in a site with some animals.
Also if anyone can recommend, bearing in mind the ages of my children, any places worth visiting (and avoiding!) I would be grateful.
At the moment we have made a list of the monkey sanctuary, the Eden Project, Tintagel, Crealy Adventure Park (Have read terrible reviews of Flambards). The older children are girls and love crafts and little shops, does anyone know of the gem place where you can collect gems and make your own jewellery? I had read about this in another post.
I know this is a long post but I wanted to give as much information as possible to get help!
