Castle Kids

Tregenna is a brilliant place for children. Castle Kids, the hotel’s childcare facility, runs a varied programme of entertaining activities that our younger guests love. Castle Kids is open everyday from 8.30am - 5.30pm excluding Bank Holidays and certain days over the Christmas period. Prices are charged hourly or daily. Castle Kids is one of the first nurseries in Cornwall to achieve the ‘Outstanding’ status in every category under new inspection criteria by OFSTED. There is a hugely varied programme of activities that include arts, crafts, sports and cooking. In addition to the extremely well equipped nursery, children attending Castle Kids also benefit from the supervised use of the two swimming pools on site, not to mention the subtropical gardens, adventure playground and vast open spaces the grounds provide.


There is a wide range of activities for kids and adults alike at Tregenna. From on-site facilities including Castle Kids to partnerships with local surf schools, there really is something for all ages. The estate itself offers 72 acres to run around in, with secret gardens and woodlands to explore. The outdoor pool is a favourite in summer but indoors there are ball sports courts and another swimming pool to enjoy. Children can enjoy the fresh air and let off some steam in the outdoor playground. Ideal for children under 8 years old, this secure play area is set back from the road but also is a convenient walking distance from the hotel for little legs. Featuring toddler friendly swings and slides, the play area is designed to match the look of the castle, a perfect opportunity for children to play princes and princesses.  Additional free activities for kids are offered during half term and school holidays only.

Food and Restaurants

There’s a bar, lounge and two restaurants at Tregenna; the main restaurant and The Brasserie which is less formal. Tregenna’s restaurant offers an impressive menu that showcases the best of locally sourced food from freshly landed fish locally sourced meat and the herbs come from Tregenna’s very own herb garden. The Brasserie Restaurant has been recently refurbished in November 2014 creating a relaxed, friendly and informal dining experience. From delicious coffee and hot chocolate to fine wines and main meals, the choice is yours. The spectacular views of the coastline make it the perfect place to enjoy good food and drink.

A family room for 2 adults and 2 young children (ie, one under 3 and one 3-5yrs) you’d be looking at £190 per night B&B in the winter months,  through to 2 adults and 2 older children (ie 10-15yrs) it would be £310 B&B in the peak of summer holidays.

Location and things to do

Set in 72 acres on high ground, Tregenna Castle Hotel overlooks St Ives Bay and is 20 minute walk to St Ives harbour and town. For surfing, head to the Blue Flag Porthmeor beach.
