Q. Following our Cornish-based wedding, we want to stay in the region for a UK-based family-moon with our two young children. Can you suggest somewhere relaxing and peaceful, but with some activities taking place, and stunning scenery?

A. Jess Trevarthen says: Jess says: Why not explore the borders of both Devon and Cornwall, offering fun for all ages that's ideal for a family-moon? It's a really good idea to consider a camping holiday, with the option of lots of outdoor activities.

Located on a peninsula tumbling into the vast Atlantic Ocean, almost completely surrounded by the sea, Whitsand Bay Fort has plenty to offer. There are extensive views of the sea, city, and countryside, plus being the only camping and touring resort situated on the heritage coastline of Rame Peninsula, there's an outdoor heated swimming pool, bar and on-site restaurant. For those who prefer a touch of luxury, one of our chic Scandinavian style lodges is a great option for adults and kids alike.

The fort architecture displays the original cannons decorating the lining of the cliffs. Discover old tunnels and hand-carved messages engraved in the walls and the hidden beaches that are just waiting to be explored, as well as the rural footpaths of Kingsand and Cawsand Bay. The local fishing villages of Looe and Polperro are ultra Insta-worthy, and make sure you devour a local Cornish pasty, an eat-by-the-sea favourite!

With links to the Adventure Bay Surf School, the entire family can learn to surf, paddle board and kayak on the beach located opposite on the Cornish coast.
