Tredethick has a fantastic child friendly indoor pool, complete with toys and floats, perfect for keeping little ones of all ages entertained. Families book daily slots to have the pool to themselves, providing a calm quiet environment for baby’s first swim. There’s the option to have a lesson with an experienced swim coach too.
There’s a well-sized soft play centre – with sofas and bean-to-cup coffee for grown-ups – and an indoor play barn with a huge sand pit, table tennis and table football. Outside you’ll find a large farm-themed balance bike, scooter and mini-tractor track, a play park and trampoline.
The highlight for most children is morning animal feeding twice a week – pigs, goats, alpacas, chickens and lambs in the spring – and the chance to ride on gentle ponies, again two rides during your week’s stay.
Tredethick is set in 80 acres of private meadows, streams and woodland, so you can grab a story map and take a wander along the picturesque farm trail with swings, log bridges, climbing frames, a maze and rope balance. If the children have any energy left, you can continue to the nearby hamlet of St Winnow where (April to October) you can buy homemade Cornish cream teas, as well as ice cream.
