Dairyland Farm Park
Dairyland Farm Park is now one of the oldest farm parks in the UK, having been established back in 1975. The park continues to grow, and alongside its farm animals, such as cows, sheep, pigs, goats, and ponies, families can enjoy a Bug Zone, a Digger Zone, a nature trail, and a zip wire.
The indoor play area is one of the best in the county, with ball pools, slides and climbing frames, to name just some of the attractions.
Mel Dougherty, who works at Dairyland Farm Park, told us what families can enjoy during a visit and why Cornwall is a great location to visit regardless of the weather.
“Dairyland is a fun-filled day. We have lots of farm animals to meet. We have a small animal area, Pat a pet, where you can meet and stroke a rabbit or guinea pig!
“We have exotics too! We have indoor and outdoor play areas. All our activity areas are undercover; just walking from place to place isn’t.
“Our indoor soft play area boosts a nearly 500 sqft area across two levels. We have drop slides, tunnel slides and plenty of space to climb and spin! We have a separate toddler area, with its own two-level play area with a ball pool and slides.”
The whole of Dairyland Farm Park will be open from 1st April to September, with regular events and extra activities throughout the season.

Speaking to us about their offerings, Claire from Kidzworld said: “We offer a superb range of activities that will keep you entertained for hours – from soft play, slides and a cannon arena to our interactive games zone, roller skating & trampolining indoors, then outdoors (open seasonally) we’ve got climbing frames & playhouses, dodgems & mini-golf – we’ve got the lot!
“Your kids will love it, you’ll love it, so why not bring the whole family along – there’s fun and entertainment for everyone.”

Super Tramp Park
Super Tramp Parks in Bodmin has so many family-friendly attractions that you could spend an entire day here and still find more activities to do.
We’ve listed some of the main attractions at the Super Tramp Park in Bodmin:
- Free jump area – comprised of flat interconnected trampolines and incline trampolines, which are perfect for first-time bouncers to develop their skills.
- Air bag – there are two trampolines that you can bounce your way down on, and when you gain some height, you can launch into the air and land on the large airbag. You can practice your somersaults here.
- Dodgeball – this is a game where there are two teams, and you try to throw a ball at your opponent and hit them. Once they are hit, they are out. It is a great game to play on trampolines as you can gain extra height that allows you to throw from a different angle.
- Basketball – there are basketball hoops ranging in height so people of all ages can practice their slam dunks.
- The wall – this new sport is a bit like Parkour, but instead, it is done indoors and on trampolines. There are wall running classes you can get involved in that are for beginners and advanced runners.
- Soft play – this safe play area is the perfect place to come if you have younger children, as there are ball pits, slides and lots of other attractions.
The Venue in Bude is a great indoor attraction if the weather is not great. There is a play zone that includes four levels of soft play for children and adults to enjoy. The extensive seating around the soft play area means adults can opt just to watch their children play whilst enjoying a quality cup of coffee or tea.
There is a separate area for toddlers which includes a padded slide, boat swing, ball pool and an interactive area that plays animal noises.
The Venue also boasts ten-pin bowling, a fully licenced bar, and a variety of arcade games that you and your family can play.
