FAMILY HOLIDAYS IN ST IVES WITH TEENAGERS

The classic British family holiday: a trip to the seaside involving sunshine, sandcastles, and the beautiful sea beyond. Ice creams, fish and chips, and Cornish pasties are bound to be on the menu no matter who you’re travelling with, however entertaining teenagers on a family trip can seem like a challenge. That’s why we’ve put together a little guide of the best things to do with teenagers in St Ives (outside the walls of our 72 acre estate). Whatever type of holidayers your teens are, we’ve got it covered.

SUN WORSHIPPERS

St Ives is known for its glorious sub-tropical climate – that’s why we have such varied and exotic plant-life on the estate at Tregenna –  which makes it the perfect staycation spot for a family holiday in Cornwall with teenagers. Tregenna Castle Resort is just a ten minute walk away from the beautiful St Ives Bay. Once you stroll through our enchanting Woodland Walk and find the beach, all that’s left to do is lay down a towel, sit back, and relax in the glorious Cornish sunshine (don’t forget the suncream). The perfect way to spend a relaxing holiday in St Ives.

BEAUTIFUL CORNISH BEACHES

EXPLORERS

We love St Ives, but Cornwall is such a beautiful area of the country with so much to discover. Just a short drive away from Tregenna Castle Resort you can find Penzance, a town full of fascinating history, gorgeous gardens, and sightseeing opportunities. St Ives and Penzance can inspire any teen’s sense of wanderlust with picturesque coastlines and wonderful countryside. Everything here, from the food to the weather, and the beaches to the sunsets, is picture-perfect (and full of chances for excellent family selfies). St Ives is full of photo opportunities to help you and your teens create lasting memories (and excellent Instagram feeds!)
