Child Friendly Holidays
Child friendly holidays at Whalesborough
At Whalesborough we have everything you need for the perfect holiday with children of any age.
We have two swimming pools which your children will spend hours enjoying. One is a heated indoor pool and the other is outdoors in the sun.
For younger children we have a lovely Pets Corner which has Chickens, Ducks, Pygmy Goats and Pigs for the children to enjoy. We collect the eggs and feed the animals everyday at 9.30am which children can help us do. We also have a people carrying trailer to take children on tractor and trailer rides to the beach and around the farm. We also offer swimming lessons for over 3's in our large indoor heated pool with our instructor Andy, so why not take the opportunity for your children to learn to swim while on holiday?
We have a huge indoor play area with soft play, ride on tractors and other games. There is a pool table, ice hockey, table football, table tennis, darts and much more. There is also a beach volley ball sand court and a basket ball hoop.
We also have an outdoor play area which provides several climbing frames, swings and rocking toys. There is also an outside sandpit called 'Little Widemouth' which means children do not have to go to the beach to make sand castles.
There are two full size tennis courts which anyone can use free of charge
Down at the Weir, 500 yards from the cottage, there is a lovely adventure playground for children, based on a wildlife theme, just by the fishing lake.
Play and climb on the birdhide lookout or use the tunnels of the Badger set to hide from your family and friends or swing on the Heron's nest swing with your brothers and sisters. There is also a rocking frog and otter all within viewing range of the picnic tables, so parents can keep an eye on the little ones while enjoying a coffee, cream tea or meal. There is also an interactive wildlife center inside the Weir, with lots of fun games for children to play on, along with Hearne Falconry who have several different species of Owls and Birds Of Prey for people to view. Please see the separate website for the Weir.
The farm is criss crossed with safe walking and cycling paths so your older children will keep themselves busy for hours exploring.
The beach and coast path are very close to the farm so older children can take themselves to the beach quite safely.
There are so many fun experiences to share with the kids - canoeing on the canal, sea kayaking, swimming in our large indoor or outdoor heated pools, sea or river fishing, surf lessons, cycling around the farm or exploring the cycle path which runs alongside the farm.
