Family holidays in Cornwall are special, in fact for many of us they’re the stuff that some of our most treasured childhood memories are made of. Sweeping coastline, sparkling ocean, sandy beaches and sea air. Adventure seems to call from every corner of the county, beckoning us to leave behind our fast-paced routines and ease ourselves into the slower tempo of coastal village life instead.

Family friendly holidays in Cornwall

Whether you’re a family with teenagers or whether you’re travelling with toddlers in tow, holidays in Cornwall can be anything you’d like them to be, from breaks that are packed with water or land-based action to stays that are all about relaxation and quiet; the choice is entirely up to you.

At Luxury Coastal we understand that the best family holidays are the ones that bring everyone together in complete comfort which is why our collection of luxury family holiday cottages in Cornwall includes options that range from large villas with room for all generations, to bijou boltholes for couples who have recently become parents.

Child-friendly cottages in Cornwall

Anyone travelling with children, especially those of a younger age, know the challenges parents face when trying to find a perfectly equipped holiday home – one that ensures an easy and relaxing break can be enjoyed by both mums and dads as well as by their little ones.

There’s literally nothing better than being able to pack light for your time away, knowing that all the details have been taken care of, meaning you can unwind from the moment you put your bags down. Bulky sterilisers, potties and highchairs can be left at home along with toys and games (no-one looks forward to the ensuing meltdown of a distraught child who’s left their favourite teddy behind), leaving more room in the boot for boards, beach gear and fishing nets.

Holidays in Cornwall with teenagers

Every parent of older children knows how hard it can be to get kids off their tablets and fact excessive screen time is the bone of much contention within most families. Thankfully there is a solution.

Holidays in places like Retallack Resort and Spa and Roadford Lake Lodges where a host of fun, action-packed adventure (both land and water-based) are on offer, means that kids can get out into the fresh air and delight themselves in adrenalin-charged activities like windsurfing, wave-boarding, climbing and ziplining. Most of Cornwall and Devon’s coastlines are also the perfect spots to take up surfing, SUPpping or kayaking and if your property has a hot tub or games room, there’s a good chance your children will forget all about their screens.

Holiday homes for multi-generational families

There’s something really wonderful about family holidays that invite young and old(er) to converge together under one roof. For most of us it’s what makes times of the year like Christmas so special. But we also realise that babies and toddler’s routines can be very different from those of our more mature members of the clan especially when being away from home for extended periods.

Which is why we love a holiday home that gives everyone the freedom to choose time to be alone as well as the space to bring everyone together. Holiday homes with more than one living area, en-suite bedrooms with TVs, and self-contained annexes all fulfil the brief beautifully, so if you’re looking for the perfect place to enjoy a magical multi-generational break, we think you’ll love these properties.
