st ives with an 8week old baby

We will be going on our first family holiday next week with our 8week old baby. we are staying in central st ives and have been many times before but not with a baby. Any suggestions for things we can do with a pram? we also have a car so could travel places too.

1. Re: st ives with an 8week old baby

Take the pleasant train journey to Penzance (I'm assuming you have some neatly foldable baby pram/buggy and not one of those giant ones?) enjoying the short coastal bit around to St Erth then views across the bay to St Michael's Mount. From Penzance station you have a (mostly) level walk of 1.5 miles to Newlyn with plenty of places to pause for coffee/snacks/lunch/icecreams/fish and chips on the way, according to what time of day it is.

A slight detour 100 yards up Morrab Rd (next to the Queens Hotel) will bring you into the Morrab Gardens, another spot for sitting, relaxing, baby feeding...

Once at Newlyn there're art galleries, a few small shops, a pier to wander along etc - and very good Jelberts icecream near the bridge.

You can walk back or get a bus back to Pz station.

(I've suggest using the train because if you're going at peak holiday time it can be easier than going by car and trying to find convenient parking.)

my daughter and son in law are looking for somewhere to go for 3-4 days in August with what will be their 8 week old baby.

Any suggestions of where to stay?
