Child friendly holidays

We never expect you to compromise on quality because you’re travelling as a family.

In the right setting, going away with the children, the dog and the extended family can be a breeze. At Polurrian Bay, we put flawless hospitality and quality time at the core of your holiday.

Location and facilities aside, what makes Polurrian Bay an ideal bolthole is our understanding of what you need to relax on holiday. Not only do we offer free childcare, children’s activities, and stress-busting sea views, this is also the sort of place where parents get to indulge in life’s forgotten luxuries – from delicious cuisine using local ingredients to spa treatments and feet-up time. Our friendly Kids’ Club staff will even whisk the children away on a Sunday morning, leaving you to curl up under the duvet with your partner, a coffee and the newspapers.

Our excellent facilities inspire quality family time both indoors and out: children will love hunting stone mice on a Mouse Safari, climbing on the enormous Crocodilla in our Vista Lounge, and heading out into the hotel gardens to search for Cornish Piskies. As well as indoor and outdoor swimming pools, there’s a play area with swings and a slide, tennis court, a family cinema and a games room.

Here are just some of the things we do to make life easy with babies, toddlers and older children:

Baby friendly hotels create baby friendly holidays (and very happy parents). At Polurrian Bay, we’ve thought of everything.

  • Free childcare For each day of your stay we offer up to two hours of childcare in our Ofsted-registered Kids’ Club, open from 10am to 5pm.
  • Baby listening and babysitting Use our complimentary baby-listening system so that you can relax and enjoy a sophisticated dinner and much-needed time as a couple. If you prefer, we can organise a babysitter at an additional charge – often our own nannies.
  • Baby equipment We like your holiday to start before you’ve even left home, so we make packing easy. We’ll liaise with you before you arrive to ensure that your room is equipped with every item of baby equipment you need, including cots, nappy bins and bottle warmers.
  • Bottles and food We can heat bottles and bring fresh morning and evening milk to your room (free of charge). Our chef is happy to provide pureed food from 8am to 9pm.
