we loved 'dairy land'. on the A3058 4 miles from Newquay. it was quite cheap and we loved the milking parlour.

Old MacDonalds Farm near Padstow is great for the little ones - ony rides, mini railway, trampolines, animals, oys, lovely cream teas

thanks liz, will check out link. looks good.
lila, unfortunately we will be staying in the bodmin moor area so it may be too far to travel.... i think?

that's where we stayed. it wasn't that far at all. maybe you should try doing a routemap on the AA website?

Flarmbards amuzment park?

I hugely recommend this - Good Britain Guide - not just Cornwall, though of course covers that too - it lives in our car and I can't count the number of times it has produced the perfect idea.

There's the Bodmin Steam Railway of course; and you're not that far from the strange hidden little enclave that is Lappa Valley

Can you guess I had a trains-mad preschooler?

My DS loved the visit to Culdrose. You book it in the little cafe/shop next to the airfield. Got to see all the helicopters etc.

Also the Maritime museum in Falmouth is good.

As hayleylou says Flambards is worth a day out!
