Its all about the kids on Holiday

Kids love Cornwall and we've been building up a number of partnerships with local activity providers to put together some suggestions for fun days full of adventure for kids of all ages.

Your adventures can begin without ever leaving Little White Alice.  We have 29 acres of land for you to explore with our climbing frame, new green play area in our nature reserve to create camps in, our studio to get creative in, our firepit to cook lunch in and our animals to make friends with. You might just spend your day playing with our shetland ponies Tango and Zennor grooming them and even having a lead rein ride around our fields. You are also welcome to come with us to feed our pigs, alpacas, sheep and chickens and to help us collect their eggs.

We have also put together a number of kits for you to use including our Dark Skies Kit, Bird watching kit, Nature Dairy and Picnic Kit. Every week we have Art and Craft Activities in The Studio for families as well as kid only and adult only activities. Ask us too about our babysitting service.

At some point we know you will want to get off and explore further afield and these are some the best adventures around, many of which are within walking or cycling distance.

Stithians lake and Watersports Centre

Just a mile away you will find this fantastic centre of outdoor water based activities with Cadet days running throughout the holidays for younger people over the age of 6.  All year round smaller kids love their Pirate Ship play area and the outdoor climbing walls. Parents can either take to the water themselves or just chill out with great coffee and cake in Caffe Nova.

Cornish Riding Holidays

A few miles down the road from us is this horse riding centre that really does stand out from the crowd with miles of off road tracks to explore, day rides and lessons all taught and lead gently from the heart by the owners and their staff. A great place to develop confidence and learn about horsemanship from the ground up if you have out grown our own ponies.
