A rainy day in Cornwall…

Family fun in wet weather

We can’t pretend it’s always sunny here. After all, how would Cornwall have its beautiful gardens without a splash of rain? When you’re on holiday with the kids, the prospect of keeping everyone entertained (and reasonably dry) can be a daunting one. But never fear! There’s plenty to do in St Ives on a wet day.

Here are some of our tried-and-tested rainy day activities for families.

Stocking up with the essentials

If you’re away for more than a couple of days, it is likely you’ll be needing to find a supermarket to keep the cupboards stocked.

In our site shop we carry all the basics, and some lovely treats too, but if you’re wanting to do a ‘big shop’ there’s plenty of options while you’re here.

Some of our favourite Cornish food producers

We produce a lot of food in Cornwall. We’re known for our fish, vegetables, meat and dairy, which are eaten all over the country. Then of course, there’s all the must-eat Cornish foods: it wouldn’t be a holiday here without a pasty, a cream tea, and fish and chips by the sea!
