The Best Area to Stay in Cornwall for Families

November 01st, 2021

Cornwall is one of the best places to spend a family holiday, no matter the time of year.

A trip to England’s most southerly county means that UK-based families don’t have to worry about the stress and hassle that travelling abroad can sometimes bring.

With crystalline waters and tropical-feel sandy coves, Cornwall’s renowned landscape will leave you stunned that you’re still on UK soil.

But where is the best area to stay in Cornwall? There are countless must-visit spots across the county, so you’ll want to make sure you’re at the heart of the action!

Our cottages here at The Valley make the perfect base for your family’s Cornish adventure. With child-friendly amenities and a whole host of other great features, you’ll be sure to create some amazing memories when you stay with us.

A Central Location in Cornwall

You’ll want to make the most of your trip by exploring all that Cornwall has to offer – from glorious sandy beaches, historical sites and adventure parks the kids will love, there’s so much to get stuck into.

Where is The Valley in Cornwall?

Our cottages are set in the stunning woodland of Carnon Downs in southwest Cornwall, which is just ten minutes from the iconic city of Truro.

Not only is Truro nearby, but when you stay with us, you’re a stone’s throw away from Falmouth too. A short trip north of the cottages will also lead you to some of Cornwall’s most beautiful beaches, including Perranporth.

A day trip to St Ives, Penzance or the Lizard peninsula is also on the cards when you set up base in such a central location.
