The perfect holiday for families with young children
Cornwall Map

Tredethick is the perfect holiday retreat for families with young children.

It provides fun experiences, in beautiful scenery, whatever the weather. It’s a place to see and hear your young children come alive and for you to relax and recharge.

Each morning on the farm children can bottle-feed lambs, feed the goats, pigs and chickens and collect freshly laid eggs. There’s an opportunity to ride a gentle pony too. Our child-friendly indoor pool is a toasty 30 degrees and the secluded hot tub garden can be fun for the whole family or a quiet retreat for parents.

Children love the soft playroom with its play frames, shapes and ball pool. Grown-ups love the daily papers, current magazines, fresh Lavazza coffee, comfy chairs and views onto sweeping farmland.

The giant sandpit, puzzles, Ping-Pong and pool in the play barn provide plenty more opportunities for play.

There’s lots of scope for outdoor fun too, with the play-park, giant trampoline, ride-on tractors, balance bikes and scooters.

Tredethick is a place where with young children you can relax, recharge, enjoy and long to return.

Portmeirion Village

Gwynedd
The village of Portmeirion stands on a rugged clifftop on its own private peninsula overlooking Cardigan Bay on the coast of Snowdonia. It is surrounded by acres of sub-tropical woodlands and miles of sandy beaches.

Portmeirion was built from 1925 to 1976 by visionary Welsh architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, who wanted to prove that development need not mean defilement. All the cottages in the village are let as rooms and suites as part of the Hotel Portmeirion or as self-catering cottages sleeping up to 8 people. The village has several cafes and eight different shops.

Many know Portmeirion as the location for Patrick McGoohan's classic "The Prisoner" television series. It is also known for the Portmeirion Pottery, designed by Clough's daughter Susan Williams-Ellis. A new contemporary styled brasserie opened at Castell Deudraeth in 2001.

Portmeirion is signposted from the A487 at Minffordd midway between Penrhyndeudraeth and Porthmadog.
