Exciting activity holidays have been organised at The Manor House since 1988 and offer exhilarating and stimulating experiences for children and adults alike.

A choice of activities are offered and selected in advance for the whole family to enjoy together or for some of the family to try independently. As family holidays are for small numbers we endeavour to tailor activities to meet the specific needs and abilities of the families involved.

Large family rooms provide comfortable accommodation, keeping the family groups together. A large luxurious lounge provides a relaxing meeting area where families can intermingle and socialise after a fun filled and active day! Meals are taken in family groups in either of the dining rooms.

These activity holidays include full board accommodation and all activity instruction and equipment provision as detailed. Additional visits to places of interest (like Eden Project or National Maritime Museum) and even relaxing massages for the adults can be arranged at an additional cost. Our instructors can also offer evening activities and games, which the whole family or individuals can participate in: which could provide time for Mum & Dad to enjoy a quiet visit to the local hostelry or restaurant!

The Garden and Spa Pool are available for quiet relaxation at the end of the day!

The Holiday can be as active or as restful as you decide to make it; full support is offered throughout the week from our qualified instructor team.

You could also choose to use the Manor House as a 'Ski Chalet' type accommodation when you organise your own daily visits and return to the Manor House for full board accommodation. Or maybe you'd prefer the Self-Catered Option.

Why not arrange to stay with a group of families and take over the whole house for an exclusive private holiday, completely tailored to your special requirements.

North #Cornwall has some great spots for #SeaPaddling, the protected south shore is perfect for those just getting to know their boats!
Only in a #Kayak can you navigate into those tight spots to get an up close view of the nature and wildlife in Cornwall's most scenic spots!
After some Michelle Obama arms?? #Kayaking will definitely sort you out! It's great exercise & works all of those upper body muscles.
