Toddler art activity in the crèche at Polurrian Bay Hotel


Take time out to relax while your children are in the safe hands of our crèche team.

Babies and children up to 8 years old will love our Ofsted-registered Den, where we offer up to two hours’ free childcare for each day of your stay.

The Den is a spacious, well-equipped crèche where children can play with toys galore, get creative in the kitchen, enjoy stories in the tepee, and get stuck into artwork under the supervision of our brilliant Den team.

Little ones will enjoy exciting daily activities including baking, arts and crafts, and outdoor and messy play. The Den is suitable for children aged three months to eight years, with all the activities carefully planned to suit these ages. The Den offers one complimentary session each day, giving you time to have a relaxing treatment in the Leisure Club or to head to the Vista Lounge for coffee and an uninterrupted read of the papers.


The Den is open daily from 10am to 5pm, with two supervised sessions per day: 10am-12pm and 3pm-5pm. Then, from 12.30pm and 2.30pm, we run parent-accompanied family fun sessions, which give parents and children the chance to play together (these sessions are unsupervised and do not need to be pre-booked). Supervised Den sessions are booked on a first-come, first-served basis and we strongly advise that you pre-book to avoid missing out.

Fancy a lie-in? Take advantage of our Sunday morning breakfast club, which runs from 8am-9.30am (pre-booking is advised.) We’ll whisk the children away for breakfast and games with the Den team, while you take some valuable time out. 

Here, there’s always plenty going on. During the school holidays we run themed activities, incorporating everything from superheroes to mermaids and pirates. From 6pm to 7pm, keep an eye-out for the Den team with games on the lawn, or you can chill out in your pyjamas at our movie nights or get creative in one of our arts and crafts workshops.

Our Blue room gives older children the sense of independence they crave, with Xbox and Wii games, a pool table and table football. Our Cinema room is used to show family films on most evenings, and also hosts children’s Wii game nights on the large screen. Our new Outdoor Play zone is brilliant for families to enjoy giant chess, hop scotch, and giant snakes and ladders; with, of course, the breathtaking views!
