Cornwall Adventure – Newquay Zoo

We have holidayed in Newquay a couple of times previously but had never visited the zoo, so with little ones who are obsessed with Steve Backshall and Deadly 60 it was top of the list to visit. Newquay Zoo looked tiny when we pulled up in the car, and it had just started raining so I was worried it may be a flying visit.  Thankfully the rain cleared quite quickly and we headed off inside. One of the first animals we found were the Lemurs and they had soon encouraged my little (or not so little) monkey’s to do there own …

Cornwall Adventure – Cornish Seal Sanctuary

During our holiday to Trevella Park in Cornwall, we visited the Cornish Seal Sanctuary which is set in the beautiful Helford Estuary.  It was a challenging place to find and we did wonder if we were going in the right direction after going down some very narrow country roads, but it was worth it when we got there.

Eden Project and Skywire

We last went to the Eden Project over 5 years ago and I have to admit I did wonder if Isaac and Eliza would enjoy it, but having seen that you could literally hurtle over the top of it on a Skywire flight, we just had to go during our stay at Trevella Park in Cornwall. Skywire cost an extra £10 on our entry to Eden Project but was well worth it.  It’s an adrenaline-fuelled headfirst ride in the ‘superman’ harness. It’s the longest zip wire in England at 660m and now it’s definitely the fastest. They’ve clocked their test pilots going …
