Magical Memories for Children


As parents ourselves, we know that we enjoy our holiday when the children enjoy theirs! Children are free to explore the grounds here at Cosawes – we hope that a few new dens will be built by our smaller guests! They are welcome to come with us to collect the eggs in the morning too.

We have a separate games room in the courtyard well stocked with board games, comfy sofas and a snooker table if time out is needed! We have also installed a Rainbow Play System for the under 10s – out of earshot of the cottages – but with a fantastic view for adults too!

Cosawes is a great base for children to explore beaches on the Roseland, in Falmouth, on the Lizard or on the North Coast. Our children’s favourite weekend activity is just spending hours on the glorious local beaches, digging, running, body boarding and rock pooling. Crabbing at the nearly Pandora Inn is also a must ( – we have a stock of crabbing nets for you to borrow – and you are sure to catch something – even if you are a novice.

Other trips for children that we would highly recommend include (amongst many others):
Pendennis and St Mawes Castles for the swashbucklers amongst the kids,
The Eden Project (,
The Falmouth National Maritime Museum (,
The National Seal Sanctuary just down the road at Gweek (,
The magical trip over the causeway to St Michaels Mount (
The amazing Padstow Lobster Hatchery (
or, of course, enjoying the boat trips and watersports activities nearby (further details mentioned in our “Enjoy the Water” section).
