We visited Cornwall as a family for the first time last October, and fell in love with it.
We stayed in Mullion, situated on the Lizard Peninsula and just a stone's throw from two breathtakingly beautiful National Trust sites - Lizard Point, and Kynance Cove. There was no shortage of things to keep us and the children happy and our simple family holiday there enjoying woodland walks, local farms & Cornish ice cream, and tranquil sandy beaches is one that we will remember fondly for many years to come.
Cornwall is the ideal location for a family holiday in the UK with an abundance of attractions to suit the whole family, from cliff top walks to watersports and surfing, gorgeous gardens, historical tours and museums, Flambards theme park for the kids (including the big ones), as well as the iconic St Michael's Mount, and The Eden Project.
The Valley in Cornwall offers the perfect base for your Cornish getaway - a unique collection of two and three bedroom holiday cottages tucked away in 13 acres of gardens and woodlands only a few miles from the city of Truro and port town of Falmouth.
With its own fitness suite complete with spa pool, indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, and tennis and squash facilities in addition to guests-only bar and restaurant Café Azur, The Valley offers a complete holiday experience in a tranquil, rural setting.
With seven of us to keep entertained and the children ranging in age from 17 down to 5, The Valley with its central location is ideally placed for us to venture out and explore the wonders that Cornwall has to offer while ensuring that on days we choose to stay and enjoy the quiet gated woodland complex we will be spoiled for choice with the exclusive activities and amenities at our disposal - although I'm sure they would happily spend all day every day swimming, and H & E would certainly enjoy the playground.
There are five styles of 5* luxury accommodation available, each one offering spacious open plan living, large bedrooms & all boasting contemporary, stylish interior designs, and with each cottage having a minimum of two bathrooms hopefully we will avoid the age-old problem of the teenagers hogging it! Seven of the Villa Galleries and one Croft cottage are also dog-friendly so there is even the option to take along our beloved Chorkie and Miniature Dachshund, Florence & Joseph, to enjoy the holiday with us.
Cornwall will tempt you back year after year with its outstanding natural beauty, hidden treasures and family-friendly atmosphere, we certainly cannot wait to visit again and make many more happy family memories.
