Lappa Valley

Absolutely fabulous family day out at Lappa Valley! So much to see & do, something for everyone. A really lovely mix of trains, history & family entertainment. What makes this place even more amazing is the staff. From the minute we arrived until the minute we were on the last train back, being waved on our way by all the staff, each and every staff member really made the effort to engage, an absolute credit to the place.

  • The gardens themselves recommend at least four hours to have a look around. Visit Cornwall suggest you could easily stay there all day! A lot depends how interested you are in gardens, plants, etc and what time of the year it is...

  • Yes, very much so. With a choice of beaches everybody should find something to do. From surfing to sandcastles, Bude has the perfect beach.

    Add to that a golf course, a canal to walk along or explore by kayak, the South West Coast Path and a nice range of places to eat and drink, we think Bude is the perfect family destination.

  • Land's End is the legendary Cornish destination that has inspired people since ancient Greek times when it was referred to as 'Belerion' – Place of the Sun. It's one of Britain's best loved landmarks, famous for its unique location and beautiful scenery and the finishing/starting point of many trips from/to John O Groats.

  • You can drive via either the M4 and M5 to Exeter and then take either the A30 or A38 depending on where in Cornwall you are heading.

    You can also use the M3 and A303 from west London.
