Create some essential childhood memories of crabbing and sea life, pirate adventures and Cornish cream teas.Crabbing competitions are a must and great fun for all the family. Flushing quay is the perfect spot to go and we can almost guarantee bacon bait will land you a catch! You could also head on a fishing trip from Falmouth or take a ferry to explore the estuary, stopping off at some of Cornwall’s beautiful gardens as you go. The Smugglers Inn is a great cream tea stop after a pirate trip up the river. (Fancy dress recommended but not essential!) There are some fabulous gardens in Cornwall, Trebah and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are particularly special. There are also some fantastic attractions to visit, Eden Project, Paradise Park and Heartlands will keep you busy for a whole day. Or why not head to Trevaskis farm, pick your own fruit and visit the farm animals, there are plenty of pigs, and sometimes piglets, calves and lambs to see.
Indoor activities close to Caddy’s CornerCaddy’s Corner is close to 101 things to do on a rainy day. We know that the British summer might have a damp day here and there so don’t worry, there are lots of options for indoor fun near to Caddy’s. Head to Geevor Tin Mine or the Maritime Museum. Spend an afternoon enjoying tea and cake in Miss Peapods or a roast at the Golden Lion. And, if it’s raining why not get in the sea? We always enjoy a surf or a swim when we’re wet anyway! There are plenty of soft indoor play areas for the children, and many of Cornwall’s major attractions, Eden Project and Paradise Park for example, still have heaps to do in grizzly weather.
