For Kids (and Big Kids)

Come rain or shine, Cornwall is brimming with activities and attractions for days out with the family. For some inspiration for what to do with the Children, or if you’re just a big kid yourself, here are some activities offering great fun for all!


Watch the big screen

A rainy day, or that one film you've been dying to see? You can walk or drive to the bottom of Redruth Town to the recently refurbished Regal Cinema, where the smell of popcorn entices you in. Sit back, unwind and enjoy the movie!

He's behind you!

Theatre lovers, visit the Hall For Cornwall in Truro and experience top shows, comedy and music! There are a range of different shows, both for the family, couples or friends. Whether you want to listen to Old School tunes or watch a show full of laughter and audience participation...there’s something for everyone. You can check out what’s on, on the Hall For Cornwall website.

Flash from the past!

Retro roller skates, neon headbands and big hair is back in fashion. Listen to 80s music as you skate around the Roller Rink in Redruth, with disco lights flashing around the room. This is the ultimate guilty pleasure if you love a bit of cheesy disco. If you're a complete beginner and have never skated before, here's your chance to pad up and give it a go!

For animal lovers

Close to home, just two miles from Penventon, it’s your chance to ride on horseback! Learn how to trot along the mineral trials and care for your own horse for the day, at Wheal Buller. Or go further afield to Newquay Zoo to watch and listen to the huge lion's wild roar, howls from the cheeky monkeys and other animals from all around the world!

For animal lovers

We would strongly recommend The Penventon Park Hotel to all our friends and family and to people who we meet along the way who are planning their up and coming wedding.The planning and wedding reception itself was absolutely out of this world. On booking our wedding with our wedding organiser Amy Butler we had someone very special to help and guide us plan our wedding with her expertise and knowledge she had all the links and connections to help our big day run smoothly. Without Amy our wedding would not have turned out as amazing as it had. Everything we wanted was taken into consideration and sorted very quickly without any issues or problems. If anything needed doing, Amy would be e-mailing, sorting problems and keeping in touch with Clive and I to ensure our day was well organised.(Thank you Amy for all your help. You certainly are a real asset to The Penventon Park Hotel and we appreciate everything you have done for us.) Also our wedding meal was absolutely fantastic, a lot of our family had travelled down from Surrey, Staffordshire and London they all remarked on how excellent the food, service and overall care was. They also said that it was the best wedding/reception they had attended. Thank you to all the staff for making our wedding day the most spectacular, magical day of our lives.
