Trethorne Leisure Park

( – 10 minutes drive

A full day out, come rain or shine! Outdoor play area, trampolines, dodgems, ten pin bowling, crazy golf, climbing wall, indoor soft play (plus a separate area for under 3’s), farm animals, pony rides…. You name it, it’s here!  The Sunday carvery is also exceptional value for money, and although the décor leaves much to be desired, the food is great! As season ticket holders, we can thoroughly recommend!!

Pirran’s Playful Piskies

Indoor soft play for under 7’s at Callington (20 minute drive)

Clean, spacious indoor soft play for the little ones, with the added bonus of great coffee (served in actual coffee cups!) and tasty food that you actually enjoy. Best soft play for little ones I’ve ever been to. Beware, in winter take your thermal socks – it can be really cold! Also, parking can be an issue so best to phone ahead to check there are spaces (01579 370939)

Tamar Otter Park (15 minute drive)

Lovely little otter & wildlife park with otter, birds of prey, tame fallow deer & a wood full of wallabies! Probably not enough to do for a full day out, but a great option if the weather is looking unpredicatable.

New Mills Farm Park & Launceston Steam Railway

Take the steam train from Launceston to this quirky little park. Basically like a huge garden with zip wire, trampolines, go karts, sandpit, a few animals, huge chickens wandering around & a stream to paddle in (take spare clothes & a bucket). Take a picnic, or get a snack from the café.

You can also drive here without getting the train (5 minutes from Landrends).

The Eden Project – (45 minute drive)

A brilliant day out for all the family. Massive Biomes housing the largest rainforest in captivity, stunning plants, exhibitions and stories serve as a backdrop to the Great Gardens, summer concerts and an exciting year-round family events programme. Great food, AMAZING pasties & ice cream. You’ll regret taking that packed lunch.
