Holywell Bay – a thrilling day out for all the family!

Posted on July 13, 2014


Ideal for children (and adults) of all ages, Holywell Bay is great whether you have a whole day to spend or only a couple of hours – although I’m sure no one will want to be dragged away! Operating a pay-as-you-play system, entry and parking is free, and you choose however many or few rides you wish to go on, These range from £1 to £8.50 and offers the added bonus of adults not having to pay top dollar for simply entering the park.

Rides include Blaster Boats and Water Walkers (warning – you may get wet), a Magical Maze, F1 Go Karts (also available for younger children – Kiddy Karts), Jolly Tots Soft Play, Hit N’ Spin Orbitors and an 18 Hole Pitch and Putt. The park really does cater for all ages – use this handy guide to see what’s most age and height appropriate!

After all that excitement you’re sure to be hungry – and with an ice cream parlour, a restaurant and a high quality diner & bar, you’ve got plenty of choice. Alternatively, you can bring your own food.

Newly refurbished in 2014, The Diner offers freshly cooked foods, most famously the park’s foot-long hotdogs! There’s a dedicated kids menu and delicious milkshakes to choose from, along with that probably much-needed tea or coffee for the grown-ups! If you’re still peckish, Daisy’s Parlour is next door, and is the place to go for a delicious ice-cream, a freshly made milkshake or a fruit smoothie. The Parlour uses locally sourced products and the finest ingredients, so why not try an unusual combination with over 18 flavours to choose from?! If you fancy a more formal bite-to-eat, the new in house chef at Woody’s has designed a mouthwatering, sophisticated menu, including homemade speciality burgers and freshly made chunky sandwiches. Be sure to check out the daily specials board and take in the very special view of the Gulls Rocks! Children are covered in Woody’s Mini Dudes selection, with a variety of sweet treats available for dessert. Find Woody’s next door to the 18-hole Pitch and Putt course.

No day at Holywell Bay would be complete without a trip to the gift-shop! Whether you’re looking for a pirate or princess toy, or something more practical like suncream or a bottle of water, it’s worth taking a trip to the gift shop to treat yourself!

The park is dog-friendly provided it’s kept on a lead, and is open from 10.30am until the 13th September. From Newquay, head to the Gannel roundabout and take the A3075 (right exit). After about 4 miles and approaching the Big Dipper, turn right onto High Lanes (this will also say Cubert and Holywell Bay). Drive through Cubert and head towards Holywell Bay where the Fun Park will be signposted on the right.

We hope you enjoy your day out!
