Has anyone taken a shortbreak family holiday to the Eden Project? If you stayed overnight, did you go for Plymouth, or something closer like Bodmin?

I'm thinking it looks like there's some fun stuff for kids in Plymouth, if we make a weekend of it. But also, Tintagel is not that far away, and there's Go Ape near Exeter. We're driving, so no worries about train times etc.

Little Saff is 9yrs, so we're looking for stuff for older kids (which will hopefully be fun for Mr Saff too -- the biggest kid of them all!).

Any thoughts?

At Easter we stayed in a cottage near St Austell, which is in easy reach of the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. We also had a lovely beach day too.

We went to St Austell at Easter too and loved it (have booked to go back in October). There’s a combined ticket for the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan which you can buy online. Heligan was the favourite part of our week down there!

Yes the Lost Gardens are great, also Exmoor Zoo, Healey's Cider Farm has stuff for kids as well as cheap Rattler!

Thanks everyone! Some great stuff here. :-D

I'm now looking at staying in Newquay and visiting Perranporth one day, then Eden Project the next day. I know it seems like a lot of driving, but we're just squeezing this in as side trip on longer visit to friends near Glasto.

Feasible?

We stayed at Poltarrow Farms. It was SO lovely and the family who run the farm are fantastic. The kids can help feed various animals in the morning and there’s an indoor swimming pool, a games room and a toddler playroom.
