Terrible tusks and terrible claws and terrible teeth in terrible jaws will be scattered around the grounds of Tregenna Castle Resort when a Gruffalo hunt takes place at the St Ives hotel.

Youngsters and their families are being invited to track down the Gruffalo by following a trail along the resort’s Woodland Walk, through the Castle’s impressive grounds, on Saturday, July 18.

The family friendly event will see the children join in the hunt and along the way they will create their own Gruffalo to take home with them.

Clues will be placed along the walk so hunters can use the quick wit of the mouse to track down the terrible parts that make up the fearsome creature – because don’t you know, at Tregenna there is such thing as a Gruffalo.

After the treasure hunt the hotel is offering a selection of food for the youngsters, including a sandwich, drink, and three extras, from orange eye melon to carrot stick tusks.

Keira Beattie, Conference and Banqueting Manager at Tregenna, has organised the event and said she hopes the day will be fun for the whole family.

“We’re a real family venue here at Tregenna and we want local families to come and enjoy the resort as well as visitors,” said Keira.

“The Gruffalo hunt should be great fun, there will be plenty of clues for the children to find and at the end they will have created their very own Gruffalo. Not only that, for very young guests, we will also have a soft play area to keep the younger brothers and sisters entertained, courtesy of Karen from www.perfectpartycornwall.co.uk

“And to make sure mums and dads feel welcome on the hunt it’s adults go free – unless of course they fancy a drink or a bite to eat while they are here.”

The event is taking place on Saturday, July 18, from 12pm until 4pm and it costs just £2.50 per child to take part including their lunch. A family ticket for two adults and two children to include lunch is £15 and children under two years old go free.
