Family Fun in July 7 / 7 / 2017

kids having fun with ice cream in cornwall

What a welcome to the summer, July is here and the sun is beaming. On the North coast of Cornwall we have a lovely cool breeze and it definitely puts us in the holiday mood!! Here we have a few of our favourite July activities for you and your family, lots to do when you come and stay at Rooke Cottages.

Of course our biggest draw in Cornwall is our amazing beaches, from easy access vast golden sands to hidden quiet coves. We love Polzeath for families, there are surf lessons for those who love to get wet, lifeguards in season and all the amenities a family could need. Leaving the beach and heading up the coastal path is so rewarding, take in the vistas – at every angle you’ll find really great photo moments.

We have every type of beach here – dog friendly, beaches perfect for rock pooling, wild swimming, or sun bathing in seclusion. Greenaway and Treyarnon are favourites for rock pooling!

But what about food, the pasty will completely satisfy after a vigorous swim, or too cool down you can’t beat ice cream and we are spoilt for choice in the county. From Roskillys, Treleavens, Callestick and Kelly’s the choice is yours! Nothing can quite beat fish and chips by the see, head to Padstow and you can try acclaimed chef Rick Stein’s with his oh so lovely batter!!

Leaving the coast behind you could explore the countryside by bike, with the Camel Trail cycle route linking Padstow, Wadebridge and Bodmin. Staying at Harbour House its an easy stroll to hire a bike and your away! There is more than just stunning scenery on offer, for those with young kids, or are just young at heart, we have Camel Creak Adventure Park, the Cornish Pirds of Prey Centre and Screech Owl Sanctuary all near by. Find steam trains in Bodmin with plenty of special days throughout the holidays and the stunning National Trust time capsule that is Lanhydrock close by.

Rain or shine there is just so much to do in Cornwall, you wont fit it all in, you’ll have to come back!!
