Soft Play Indoor Play St Ives Cornwall

Fabulous Soft Play & Indoor Play Centres In Cornwall

The Best Soft Play Places In & Around St Ives Cornwall

Soft Play centres can be an absolute life saver for parents, especially on a rainy day in the school holidays! St Ives itself is a bit lacking in soft play facilities. I dream that one day someone will convert The Malakoff (the massive big empty white building under the bus station) into a big soft play centre. I’m sure that if this ever did happen my kids will be far too old to use it though! However, there are some good soft play places you can visit, all within a short(ish) drive from St Ives.

Paradise Park Jungle Barn, Hayle

Gwel-An-Mor Base Camp, Portreath

LOCATION MAP: Feadon Ln, Portreath, Redruth TR16 4PE

Gwel-an-Mor has a lovely new soft play facility which we love. It has an excellent soft play zone, a clip n climb climbing wall for the older kids, and a nice cafe.

  • Very good soft play set up. It is on 3 floors but only one main entrance, so the kids can’t stray. It is jam packed full of things for them to do. It must be designed by a different company to the usual soft places in Cornwall – we like the variety!
  • There is an additional soft play area for the much younger children.
  • They limit the number of children in the soft play area – I think it is 21? This ensures it doesn’t get too crowded.
  • The clip n climb walls are brilliant for children who need to burn off lots of energy! They are really safe to do and the staff are excellent.
  • The cafe serves lovely coffee, plus some nice food too.
  • The loos are lovely (yes I’m sounding very middle aged). But they really are – nice handwash and art on the walls too!
  • Big, free car park.
  • No gift shop – hurrah!

Brewer’s Fayre Soft Play, Hayle

LOCATION MAP: Carwin Rise, Loggans, Hayle TR27 5DG

The Brewer's Fayre Soft Play is located inside the Brewer's Fayre restaurant at the big Hayle roundabout. We like to go for a meal there and let the kids burn off steam by a run around in the soft play. They have also been to lots of kids parties there, which I have heard is good value!

  • Fairly small, but well designed soft play area. It is a sort of “cage” on 2 levels with a couple of little slides and obstacles to get over.
  • There is a toddler area to one side.
  • Tables and places to sit for the grown ups
  • You can take in your food and drink from the restaurant.
  • You can book children's parties.

    Soft Play Area In Penzance

    LOCATION MAP: St Johns Church, Trewartha Ter, Penzance TR18 2HE

    The Soft Play Area In Penzance is held in St John’s Church. It isn’t a purpose built play zone set up, like most of the other soft play zone. It is more of a set up in a church hall. Albeit a lovely set up – they have a bouncy castle, climbing frame, ball pool, slide, and lots of other bits and pieces.

    Food and drink is available - only food and drink purchased from soft play to be consumed onsite.

    LOCATION MAP: Discovery Quay, Falmouth TR11 3QY

    The Maritime Museum in Falmouth has a lovely soft play zone called The Treasure Island Playzone. If you visit the museum once, you get free returns for a year. This is well worth knowing if you visit Falmouth regularly, as we do. It isn't the biggest soft play, but lovely for a quick pop in (and sit down for us!) for a change from shopping! My children love the maritime museum and there is lots they like to do there as well as the soft play. They love going to the top of the tower and looking through the telescopes, and then going to the bottom and looking under the sea. During the school holidays there is often trails, art activities and little shows for them to see too.

    • pirate-y climbing structure
    • slide
    • dressing up
    • rocking toys
    • cafe, shop and loos (part of the museum)
