Cohort has always been family-friendly and 2020 has taken this to a whole new level. The very nature of how our accommodation is currently organised (private rooms only) has meant that we have become a really viable, very affordable alternative for families wanting to visit St Ives.
St Ives is a very family friendly resort with plenty to do for everyone. If you’re staying at Cohort we are right in the centre of town so it’s a short walk to anywhere or anything you’d like to do.
There are many reasons why families might choose St Ives over a week abroad – easy access, great food, no currency exchange and no airport terminals to battle through (having struggled through airport terminals with two kids under 5 we understand how traumatic it can be!).
OK we don’t have guaranteed 30 degree heat but think how much time you save on applying sunscreen and our beaches are way better than any you’d find in Spain.
From experience we know how important it is to TIRE THOSE KIDS OUT; if nothing else it means you can get some downtime at the end of the day when they’re passed out in the room.
To that end here are our Mumsnet entries for family friendly things to do in St Ives.
[Please email / ask reception for more details of any of these activities, we are happy to help].
While things are a little different at the moment in a COVID-19 world we do provide great, family friendly accommodation. The large, communal lounge has plenty of space for families to chill and while all our board games are in storage you are welcome to bring your own.
There is free tea and coffee served all day and even though our self-catering kitchen is currently shut (government guidelines) you are welcome to bring food back to the hostel and eat in our lounge or courtyard.
To make things easier for your fussy eaters there is a Co-Op supermarket next door (open 7am – 11pm 7 days a week) and a great little independent, general store over the road (Osbornes) which is open Monday – Saturday.
We have free, superfast WiFi throughout the building so bring your tablets, smart phones and laptops to entertain the kids or work during your downtime. Our WiFi can cope with everyone in the hostel all streaming at once!
