Grannie Day Care

Today Grannie Day Care is full to capacity with all three grandchildren insitu.  We have Jessica who is 2 1/2 years, Bethany and William who are both 10 months.  It is mayhem I am sure.  In fact the very reason I am able to write a blog is because I do not have a baby or toddler trying to help me type right now – so thanks Grannie!

Grannie herself has been very busy preparing the cottages for the half term visitors.  As usual we have had our winter makeover with painting happening throughout, new curtains, plastering and lights in various cottages.  It is always a mad dash in January to get everything done but we are finished and ready to welcome guests for the February Half Term.

Spring is really springing in Cornwall, it is getting warmer and there are flowers out left right and centre.  If you are visiting in the next few weeks here are some great ideas of things to do:

  • The Lost Gardens of Heligan – not only do children get in free in February but you can try your hand at making a wildlife hotel, explore the garden and try out the rope bridge.
  • The Eden Project – try your hand at survival skills at Eden
  • Cardinham Woods – one of our favourite pushchair family walks with a fantastic cafe and children’s play area
  • The Maritime Museum – discover the history of tea this half term – you might even get to enjoy a cup!
  • Spring coast walk – enjoy a refreshing stroll on the north coast followed by lunch at Lenwinnick Lodge watching the waves crashing, both child and dog friendly.

Coronavirus Update – 24th March

We wanted to give you a quick update if you’ve booked with us or are wanting to in the coming months.

At the moment we are closed until the end of April and will continue to monitor the situations.  This is to ensure we can do our bit in helping to stop the spread of the virus – now is a time to stay at home and spend time with family there.  If you have a holiday booked with us or have any questions then please do give us a call or send us an email to

 Whilst now isn’t the time for you to come to Cornwall, it’ll still be here when we get through this – we’ll see you again.

Take care and stay healthy

Judith and Family.
