Bedruthan Hotel & Spa, Magwan Porth, Cornwall

Overlooking one of western Cornwall’s most magnificent beaches, the ultra-child-friendly – and also eco-friendly – Bedruthan Hotel & Spa is a stylish spot for family holidays and breaks, combining opportunities for parental relaxation (kids’ clubs, a spa, evening baby-listening) with lots of activities, some run by its Surf Shack.

A perfect blend of luxury and informality, this is a place that has thought of everything parents might need, especially those with younger kids. The only thorn is occasional issues with restaurant service; the food itself is good.

The Bedruthan Hotel & Spa is between Padstow and Newquay (with its train station and airport) on the west coast of Cornwall.
