Family Days Out

Cornwall is the place for families! And Ekopod is so close to some of the very best family fun the county has to offer!


Families are so very welcome to our little corner of Cornwall and there’s plenty to keep kids big and small entertained. We’ve got some fantastic family attractions right on the doorstep and with the A30 close by, the rest of Cornwall is within easy reach so you really can think big when planning your Cornish adventures! And of course if the great outdoors is more your scene, we’ve got plenty of that on offer too across the Tamar Valley and beyond! 


This was one of our favourite stays ever, and
we have since recommended it to everyone we know!

Hidden Valley

Hidden Valley is a unique adventure park offering great family entertainment whatever the weather. Solve puzzles, mysteries and missions on different adventure trails. Ideal for older children although younger ones will enjoy the gardens and miniature train. It’s dog friendly outdoors too so the whole family can enjoy!

You’ll no doubt have heard of Tintagel – maybe even read the legends and stories about King Arthur and his Knights  – but there’s nothing quite like soaking it up in person. Walk the footbridge to the castle ruins and take a guided tour from an Arthurian expert. There’s something for the whole family.

The Milky Way Adventure Park

Fancy an award winning day out?  Head for The Milky Way Adventure Park. Devon’s biggest family attraction is an all weather day out with soft play, thrilling rides, dodgems, trampolines, a bird of prey show and so so much more. You can get food and drink there too so can stay and explore all day long.

Miniature Pony Centre

Of course there are miniature ponies at Dartmoor’s Miniature Pony Centre but there’s so so much more too!  Micro pigs, sheep, donkeys, a unicorn experience, indoor and outdoor play, not to mention its beautiful location in the heart of Dartmoor – a really lovely family day.
