Perched on the cliffs of the North Cornwall coast, Sands Resort Hotel & Spa is the answer to perfect family weekend breaks. Cornwall is a long standing favourite in the UK for staycations and at Sands, not only is the location second to none with unrivalled beaches, surfing and scenic coast path walks, Sands has thought of everything families need for relaxing weekend breaks.

Recently named TripAdvisor’s Best Family Hotel in Europe (2012), Sands takes care of every little detail that makes travelling with children fun rather than frantic.  Stylish, family friendly room layouts that give parents and children a little much needed space and privacy, baby listening and OFSTED approved Kids’ Clubs that keep the children entertained and happy. Parents can unwind and enjoy a relaxing spa treatment, a swim in the pool or a walk on the beach, child-friendly meal times and free surfboard and wetsuit hire.

Sands has also thought of all the little details that make travelling with young children easier, with buggies, bottle sterilisers, highchairs and travel cots at hand. The hotel has everything laid on to make family weekend breaks in Cornwall a relaxing and enjoyable.

Britta Hoffmann, Marketing Manager at Sands Resort said: “If you are lucky enough to live in the South West, there really is no place like home for a holiday. In recent years we have seen local families returning to Sands time after time, especially for short breaks, and our bookings from families across the South West are increasing year on year. Travelling for a short-break, especially with children in tow, can be stressful, so why not cut the journey time short and make the most of every minute with a short break on your doorstep right here on the beautiful North Cornish coast. The Sands South West scheme is open to anyone who lives within Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Bath and Avon and we hope guests enjoy the discounts as a thank you to recognise their loyalty to Sands.”
