At Fowey Hall we put family life at the core of your luxury holiday: Kids can eat bangers and mash, bounce on the trampoline, paint pictures and play Wii. Grown-ups can dine by candlelight, sip fine wines, soak up sea views and relax with spa treatments. Together, families can explore the gardens, get sand between their toes and enjoy leisurely meals while the dog snoozes by the fire. We never expect you to compromise on quality because you have children in tow.
Our excellent facilities inspire quality family time both indoors and out: zoom down the zip wire, make a splash in the pool and collect eggs from the chickens. However, we understand that parents need time out to relax on holiday too. Our complimentary crèche facilities, baby-listening system and games rooms ensure that children of all ages are entertained and cared for, leaving adults to chill out in the spa, dine together, stroll in the gardens or sink into a sofa and read the papers.
These are just some of the things we do to make life easy with children:
Crèche and children's activities
Each day of your stay we offer up to two hours free childcare in our Ofsted-registered Four Bears Den – suitable for babies and children up to 8 years old. There’s toys galore, art equipment, dressing up clothes and Syd the goldfish (who especially loves story-time).
If you fancy a lie in, our unique breakfast club is available on Sundays and selected days during school holidays. The children will be whisked away by our friendly nannies to collect eggs from the chickens, while you curl back up under the duvet with your partner, a coffee and the newspapers.
As well as plenty of space to run wild in the grounds, there’s a giant trampoline and a zip wire for hours of fun. There are also wellies, fishing nets and buckets and spades to borrow for your beach adventures.
Older children can meet friends and play video games in the Blue Room, or watch the latest movies in the cinema room.
We welcome children in our 12-metre indoor pool, and have armbands, floats, noodles and pool toys for all ages. There are even poolside beanbags to flop out on for a rest, and a terrace and outdoor hot tub to enjoy on balmy days.
Children's High Tea and Family Dining
To make meal times easy, children's meals are served all day. It’s up to you whether you eat dinner as a family or feed the children early and settle them into bed before enjoying a grown-up dinner. Children will love the party ambience of ‘High Tea’, served between 5pm and 6pm. Nannies are on hand so that parents can kickback from the mayhem and enjoy a gin and tonic. If you prefer to eat dinner as a family, we offer family dining in The Garden Room from 6pm.
Baby listening and babysitting
Once the children are tucked-in, switch on the complimentary baby-listening system and you can relax and enjoy a sophisticated dinner – sipping fine wines, sampling Cornish cuisine and catching up on much-needed time as a couple. If your child wakes up or makes a noise, the listening panel at reception will be immediately alerted. If you prefer, we can organise a babysitter – often our own nannies. Please note that there is an additional charge for the babysitting service – call us to discuss your requirements on 01726 833866.
We like your holiday to start before you’ve even left home, so we make packing easy. We will we liaise with you before you arrive to ensure that your room is equipped with everything you need, from cots and bottle warmers to bed guards and potties.
We can heat bottles and bring fresh morning and evening milk to your room (free of charge). Our chef is also happy to provide puréed food from 7am to 10pm.
