What if it rains?

Believe it or not, Cornwall does sometimes experience a bit of liquid sunshine! This, however, needn't mean hours of being cooped up your holiday cottage with your very frustrated kids!

Many of the attractions above are kitted out for all weathers and have indoor play areas.

Rain is the perfect weather for watersports - you're in the sea, you're already wet - who cares if it's raining!
