Activities for Families
The Metropole is an ideal family holiday base from which to explore the beautiful north Cornwall coast.
There are plenty of local attractions, including the National Lobster Hatchery, Newquay Zoo, Dairyland Farmworld, and some of Cornwall’s most beautiful gardens. Further up the coast you can explore the legend of King Arthur at Tintagel or visit the stunning St Nectan’s Glen near Boscastle.
There are miles and miles of beaches, with golden sand and lots of rock pools to explore, together with plenty of opportunities to enjoy sailing, surfing and sea-kayaking.
Nature lovers will enjoy a day out cycling the Camel Trail, and the South West Coast Path is right on our doorstep.
Families are welcome to dine in our Harbour Restaurant or, for less formal dining, your family may prefer our Estuary Room or Café Bar. At the Metropole we like to make family dining as accommodating as possible and also provide high chairs for children on request.
We offer a special children’s High Tea from 5.30pm each day in our Café Bar, so all the family can enjoy a traditional Cornish cream tea!
