Sands Resort is truly a place where you can have a great holiday or mini-break without worrying about what to do / what to eat / how to occupy the kids. It’s all in hand! It really is so welcoming and so nicely done for families that we will very happily book to go back for a future holiday… we can’t wait.

Owner recommendations

  • Nature lovers will love a trip to Newquay Zoo, home to hundreds of species of animals and a lush sub-tropical garden.

  • Lappa Valley Railway has three miniature railways to jump on and explore - a brilliant day trip for kids young and old.

  • Sands Resort Hotel is very close to Porth and Watergate Beach, ideal for a fun day on the beach, rock pooling, snorkeling or trying out body boarding .

  • Kids will love a fun-packed day at Dairyland Farmworld where you can pat a pet, take a pony ride, get hands-on with milking or ride the mini tractors.

  • Slightly further afield but well worth the drive is Kynance Cove on the Lizard Peninsula - an absolutely stunning beach famous for white sand, turquoise sea and hidden coves.
