Holiday Activities

Grab your band at check in, get in line and become part of the festival as we host a brand new schedule of awesome family experiences!


We love children at The Esplanade Hotel, and it’s our job to look after you and your family, ensuring that you have an excellent time at our family hotel in Newquay.

In addition to the indoor soft play area, heated pool and pirate ship adventure playground we also offer a fun schedule of family friendly activities during school holidays and weekends - all free to join.

Choose from a range of festival-inspired activities and get stuck in, The Esplanade is the place to be seen at this summer in Cornwall...

Activity Schedule

Our holiday activity schedule changes all the time, so even if you've stayed with us before, there's always something new to do. It doesn't matter if you're not sure what your plans are just yet, you don't need to book, you can just sign up for activities at reception once you're all settled in.

As a family hotel in Newquay, we always offer something to do during the school holidays and weekend, whatever the weather. We adore getting messy and generally having lots of fun...The Esplanade Hotel in Newquay is the kind of place where childhood memories are made!

Take a look at our sample schedule here.


Coming to stay over the school holidays? We are very excited to introduce to you our complimentary Build-My-Bear family activity included in our FREE family activity schedule! Your tickets to the party will be ready for you to collect on arrival so be sure to bring those along with you. Each child will be given their own teddy bear to make and a t-shirt to decorate, which will then be theirs to join your family on your holiday adventures...
