Trethorne leisure park near Launceston is fantastic and mainly indoor so ideal whatever the weather.

we really enjoyed the Eden Project. If you book online it is a bit cheaper. Then, if you giftaid it you can convert your entry to an annual pass, so if you go at the beginning of the week you can also go at the end of the week.

Martime Museum in Falmoith . entry allows entry again for a whole year !

If you have Tesco vouchers it is a clubcard deal for entry .

DS was deeply happy to get the foot ferry from Rock to Padstow and back again. And not quite Cornwall, but the Big Sheep in Bideford was v popular

Dairyland, Lappa Valley Railway, Crealy Adventure Park and Springfields are all popular with my children and are around Newquay area. Flambards Theme Park in Helston is having a big end of season firework display and a meet and greet with scooby doo one day over half term, thursday I think, if you fancy that. The Camel Trail cycle path is worth doing if you have a dry day, you can hire bikes there. Can think of loads more - just let me know what sort of thing you like doing!

If you get the local paper (West Briton or Cornish Guardian) they usually have money off vouchers for local some local attractions.

yes really, if you gift aid it. you have to give various dtails so only you can use it and not pass to other people, but we went twice in 10 days in the summer, and found plenty to do.

Second Lappa Valley, Dairyland (especially if wet)and Camel Trail with fish & chips at Mr Stein's as the reward! Park up behind Lidl in Wadebridge(might be worth booking bikes as half term). Falmouth Maritime Museum is a longer drive from Newquay (over an hour) but great especially for wet days. Highly recommend Trevilley Farm shop just outside Newquay; wonderful homemade pasties (pre-order by phone - they also have a website) and if you are near Porth Beach, please visit Porth Stores as my DD's godfather owns it and he is lovely! See you down there....or queing on the A303 to get in wink
