Where do we start when there are so many possibilities?! Let’s begin with the places that are nearest to Gospenheale Barn (PL15 8PQ)
Hidden Valley Discovery Park has clues to solve together, a little train to ride on, beautiful gardens, a cafe with delicious food and a forbidden mansion that’s great fun.
Trethorne Leisure Park has a ball pool, pony rides, a soft play area, animals, climbing frames, 10 pin bowling, dodgems, food (book for the delicious Sunday carvery) and much more!
You can travel to New Mills Farm Park on the Launceston Steam Railway or drive there for “a great value day out especially for toddlers and younger children”.
Tamar Otter and Wildlife Centre is also very popular with our guests as you can see a variety of animals from otters and owls to meerkats and wallabies.
Charlie Bears has a free Bearhouse Gallery with hundreds of bears on display and special offers and events. People often combine this with a visit to Jo Downs Glass studio where you can view the workshop as well as be tempted by the beautiful fused glass in the shop.
Launceston (known locally as Lanson) has a good selection of independent shops around a cobbled market square. St Mary’s Church, Lawrence House Museum , Launceston Steam Railway and the Norman Castle (English Heritage) are all worth visiting.IT’S LESS THAN 5 MILES TO ALL OF THE ABOVE ATTRACTIONS!Just a little further away is Dingles Vintage Fairground Centre, Roadford Lake, Cotehele House and Gardens, Morwellham Quay, Sterts Theatre, Carnglaze Caverns, Tamar Donkey Sanctuary and Bodmin Steam Railway.
We are only 20 minutes from the North Cornish coast where you can visit Boscastle, Tintagel (King Arthur’s Castle), Crackington Haven (amazing rock strata), Widemouth Bay (fantastic for families and surfers), Bude, Trebarwith, Port Issac (Doc Martin and Fisherman’s Friends), Rock, Polzeath, Padstow…….
