Whether it’s half term or the summer holidays, more and more families are choosing to holiday in the UK rather than abroad. Though a holiday abroad brings with it the better chance of good weather it can be costly to pay for multiple flights and the travel time is usually considerably longer, which can be a struggle with little ones. One of the top holiday destinations for families in the UK is Cornwall, more specifically Newquay.
As a family-run business, we understand the importance of finding somewhere that appeals to all ages. At Healey’s Cyder Farm we are not too far from Newquay, so we’re familiar with the area and have seen just how many families enjoy their time here. We put it down to the fact that Newquay has something for everyone and all bases are covered; from great accomodation, fun days out and lots of outdoor space to explore Newquay really does have it all.
