Bringing the kids

Looking for a family holiday in Cornwall? Let us welcome you to Whalesborough. Situated minutes from the gorgeous North coast beaches at Bude and Widemouth Bay, our luxury cottages are surrounded by 450 acres of Cornish countryside. Onsite there’s a family-friendly restaurant, indoor swimming, a spa, soft play for younger guests and plenty of farm animals to meet too.

Luxury family Cottages

Our luxury cottages were made for family holidays. Sleeping 2 – 12, you’ll be able to choose from more than 20 across our site, so what will it be? Fancy one from our hot tub collection? Prefer to be on one level? No matter what it is you’re after, you’ll find an option that’s perfect for your family.

450 Acres to explore

Despite being just minutes from the North Cornwall coast, Whalesborough still has more than 450 acres of countryside around it. That means there’s plenty of places to explore; head down the canal (pictured) for a lovely walk into the bustling town of Bude, or take the Whalesborough trial 5 kilometers to Widemouth Bay, where there’s not one but two beaches!

Animal Feeding

If your children are animal lovers then you’re in for a treat. Whalesborough is home to a wide range of farm animals who you can not only meet, but also hand feed on selected mornings. There’s goats, chickens, pigs, lambs (depending on time of the year) and alpacas too!

A Unique Cow Safari

Whalesborough is home to one of the UK’s only cow safaris! Running at certain times of the year (generally during the summer months) you’ll be able to head out onto the farm and get up and close with some of the cows that call Whalesborough home. This is a really special and unique experience so check if it’s running when you’re staying.

Onsite Restaurant

Just a short stroll down the hill from our cottages is our onsite restaurant The Weir. Overlooking a picturesque lake and serving the very best local produce, much of which is sourced from the surrounding farm, it’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and is great if you’re wanting a few days off of cooking duty! There’s also a large outdoor play area for little ones to enjoy.

Indoor swimming, Spa & GYM

If you’re wanting to swim during your stay then take advantage of our indoor swimming pool, which you’ll find at our onsite spa, The W Club. As well as the pool, there’s a range of spa facilities and treatments. Wanting to keep up that fitness regime while you’re away? We’ve also got a state of the art gym.

Indoor Playroom

The littlest members of the family are spoilt for choice in our playroom with soft play, ride on tractors and all kinds of games to enjoy. 

To The beach

The beaches at Bude and Widemouth Bay are both around 5 kilometers from our cottages. They’re perfect for families, there’s plenty of parking and food options when you get there too.
