Bucket and Spade Holidays in Cornwall


With all the cheap flights that are available these days, and the package holidays that you can get for bargain prices, people tend to go abroad more often than holiday at home.

However, it can make a really great change to do a traditional seaside holiday with your children. For one thing, it’ll probably bring back memories of many of your own childhood holidays – when airline travel used to be for the exclusive few. It’s also really great for children to see some of their own country and what it has to offer.

One classic family holiday that’s hard to beat is time spent on or near the beach in Cornwall. There are so many beautiful places to choose to visit, and if you pick the place you stay carefully, you can be a stone’s throw from a number of different attractions, meaning that you can combine days on the beach with other activities like theme parks, zoos and other tourist attractions.

There’s a lot of different accommodation to choose from in Cornwall – whether you want to stay on a campsite, in a private holiday cottage or in a hotel. It depends on what kind of facilities you want.

Holiday parks are a great option as you can use all the facilities like indoor swimming pools and kids clubs. Best of all, if it doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, there’s no need to actually camp. Instead you can rent one of the holiday lodges in Cornwall that are located on some of the holiday parks there. Staying in a holiday lodge is really like staying in a home from home – as they have fully equipped kitchens, spacious living areas and comfortable bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.

Cornish holidays are times filled with beautiful beaches, spectacular countryside, fish and chips on the front and clotted cream teas in little cosy cafés – all of which add up to happy family memories.
