Toddler holidays in Cornwall

Our acres and acres of working farmland are a paradise for toddlers, there’s just so much to see and do.  When you’ve exhausted everything Tredethick has to offer, there’s plenty of toddling to be done outside of the gates too. From family favourite beaches to fantastic adventures just right for little legs. 

The back roads to Royal Cornwall Show, past Ruthernbridge and Lanivet are magical, meandering and lined with wildflowers. They seem which materialise once a year for the annual family day out. There are landmarks like the farm with bright blue gates and the shaded valley garden filled with gunnera. Tim and I are joined by Saskia (2), Bathsheba (7) and Tristan (14) for the trip. Tim’s Dad (like many Cornish farmers) is there too, as a steward, resplendent in his bowler hat and suit.
We like cycling. It may feature somewhat disproportionately in these blogs. Why? Cycling seems to lift everyone’s spirits - with the fresh air and scenery (or sometimes the sheer relief of finishing a ride!). It feels like the golden stuff of family memories. More practically, we have bikes so it’s not too expensive and it’s something we can do with all our children - from 2 to 18.
