Research now shows that 61 per cent of us enjoy active family holidays, so with this in mind The Manor House Activity & Development Centre has put together a program offering a Retreat Weekend, with a difference - ACTIVITIES!!

For the more daring, there is a choice of surfing, rock climbing and kayaking and for the more sedate then cycling and walking is on offer. Add to this massage, reflexology, good food, good company and comfortable surroundings and you have a magical weekend of fun!

Add also the fabulous SPA POOL which has seven seats, a variety of massage options, aromatherapy jets and mood lighting and you have the makings of a fabulous weekend retreat! This pool is situated on the decking in the secluded Manor House garden and is surrounded by low level lighting so that it can be enjoyed after dark ... staring up at the stars... perhaps with a glass of Bubbly! Use of the spa pool is free to our Retreat Weekend guests, who book two or more activities and can be reserved in advance for sole use by your party!

The activity holiday can be tailored around your needs, so if you want more of a relaxing weekend with more emphasis on the holistic side then we can arrange this also.


Surfing - aerobic sport that will get your heart and lungs pumping it is also great for balance and for toning saggy upper arms.

Stand Up Paddleboarding - great fun and giving the whole body a great work out. Fantastic for Core Muscles and flat tummies!

Cycling - a great way to tone those legs and take in some of the beautiful countryside.

Rock climbing - takes you to levels that you may never have been, physically and mentally

Kayaking - great fun and giving the upper body a great work out.

Walking - stride out and fill your lungs with all that fresh sea air.

Back, neck and shoulder massage - muscle conditioning and beauty treatment for total relaxation, coupled with Aromatherapy!

Whether you choose all or some of the activities or just go for the massage, we can guarantee you will return home feeling rejuvenated - and you will also have lots to talk about regarding your weekend!!


Dinner, Bed, and Breakfast are provided each day (you will just need to purchase your lunch unless you opt for our full board option). And for that special treat, a traditional Cornish Cream Tea can be waiting for you on return from your chosen activity. Fantastic Three Course Dinners can be provided in the luxurious period Dining Room. You may also choose to include A Healthy Eating Regime whereby all the foods would provide a healthy contribution to a well balanced diet.

Great for Hen Parties and Ladies 'get-away-from-it-all' Weekends without the blokes! Groups of 15 or more may book exclusive use of The Manor House, by prior arrangement. Minimum Group Size of 8 applies.

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.
