Family Holidays in Cornwall

What will get the children away from Minecraft and Tiktok better than an outdoor adventure on a great big lake? They might not know until they try it but once they’ve tied their first guy rope or paddled their first SUP you’ll struggle to tear them away. But we’re not just set up for the little ones, we welcome family members of all ages and abilities with holiday packages offering discounted watersports activities when you book our purpose-built luxury yet accessible holiday cottages.

The best holidays for kids are those that involve running around in the great outdoors, learning new skills and showing off what they’ve learned to proud parents. Of course there is plenty of opportunity for family competitions, tournaments both in and out of the water to see who will take home their family cup – sure it’s just an oddly shaped stone you found on a local beach, but it’s also so much more than that. It represents the memories made that will last a lifetime (and that time your youngest was better at kayaking than you – shh!).

Family breaks can require lots of planning and itineraries but with so much to do in and around Trevassack Lake, you’ll have the best family adventure holiday without even trying. Whether you come for a family break or a half term holiday, our location in south west Cornwall means if you can tear the kids away from the water, you won’t have to go far to find more to amuse them, with beautiful beaches but a stone’s throw away.

Our family holiday destination is self catering, with an on site café to help with rumbly tummies once you’ve all dried off – it’s located on the water’s edge, beside our learning centre, so you can enjoy a coffee with a view. This part of the world isn’t short of places to eat for even the fussiest child and in particular, we’re not far from Roskillys (ice cream + farm = happy families).

All in all, we’re doing our best to provide you with a family friendly holiday in Cornwall that you’ll want to keep coming back to for years to come.

Bradbury House

The ultimate family-friendly accessible house for a family holiday to remember. Set right on the waterfront where all the watersports action happens, this is the best place to stay for half term holidays, family breaks or holidays with kids. This spacious family house has a large deck out over the water so supervise little ones at all times.

Clare Milne House

With an open air lift taking you up from the centre of the sporting action almost to your front door, little legs will be saved from the wobbles after tiring themselves out on the water all day. This family holiday home is perched above the shore with it’s own private deck and hot tub so the adults can relax when the youngsters have gone to bed.

Lizard House

This dog-friendly family holiday home welcomes every member of the family (sleeping up to eight), with plenty of space for all inside and out. You might just find the toddler curled up with the dog on the heated floor after a hard day’s play, leaving you free to enjoy your private hot tub under the stars in the fresh Cornish air of an evening.  

Serpentine Cabin

Family cabin holidays are becoming more popular, and if they’re anything like a stay at Serpentine then we can see why! Spacious for all the family, with bedrooms at opposite ends of the accommodation for privacy there is even a hot tub on the deck.

Quartz Cabin

Family friendly and dog friendly with a hot tub – this cabin has it all, set in the grounds of our watersports centre in Cornwall. We might be biased but we’re pretty sure this is the best family holiday destination you’ll find, welcoming to all ages, abilities and species!

Calcite Cabin

Whether you plan a non-stop family adventure holiday or will be exploring further afield around The Lizard peninsula and beyond, this cabin is an ideal self catering base to return to for all generations (but the hot tub might just be for mum and dad only!)
