The 5 star Self Catering Retallack Resort & Spa on Cornwall's spectacular north coast is gearing up for a scarily good autumn break over the Half Term with friends and family.  There will be plenty of activities to keep the kids amused, from pumpkin carving, Halloween bake offs, ghostly story time and pool activities for the 'tiny terrors'.  Retallack Resort's Kid's Club (for children aged 2 years +)  will be operating every day, providing fun and creativity for the kids so that mum and dad can enjoy the indoor pool, spa, eucalyptus sauna and steam and fitness studio - and if the sun shines there is the added bonus of tennis courts and 9-hole pitch and putt golf course.  From Ducklings swimming classes in the indoor pool and Twinkle Tots music for babies and toddlers, to a full schedule of Kids Club activities there is something for everyone.

Halloweden is taking place at the Eden Project, within close proximity to Retallack. Dare to be scared with their magical craft activities and special guest, Julia Donaldson's 'Room on A Broom' Witch who will be gathering up the ingredients needed to make a special potion that will earn you a ticket to see the film - but watch out, the dragon will be watching! A Little Monsters Hallloween Ball Disco will also be taking place for fancy dress fiends.

The ideal time of year to escape the rat race and breathe in the autumnal air, Retallack gives you the perfect opportunity to cosy up in the warm, fully equipped lodges (or even brave the hot tub on your private terrace!). There is plenty on offer in and around the resort. For dog-lovers this is the perfect season in which to take your cute canine to explore all the beaches and coastal areas of breathtaking landscape. Beaches are more secluded and the dogs are free to explore the resort with their owners and are welcome in the lodges.

If it is outdoor activities you are after then you can push those adrenalin buttons by testing your mettle on the in-resort FlowRider, one of only a handful of artificial surfing waves in the country, and the UK's first. The Flowrider is fantastic for groups, tweens, teens and all the family.  Whether you are an aspiring Kelly Slater or budding beginner, it is suitable for everyone over 5 years of age. Open daily you will have the chance to surf the perfect wave whatever the weather or if you just want to watch the action and catch a glimpse of the pros, there is a viewing balcony and a soft play zone for little ones.

To top off your autumnal retreat, enjoy a family lunch or first class dinner for two at the The Green Room restaurant on the Resort.  Run by ex Masterchef winner, James Nathan, the restaurant offers a fabulous seasonal menu with ingredients all made from locally sourced ingredients - babysitting is also provided by the experienced staff on hand.

A gorgeous collection of self catering lodges with the unique added benefits of a concierge service, Retallack Resort is perfectly positioned only a few minutes' drive from Padstow, Newquay and Wadebridge and just a stone's throw from Cornwall's golden sandy beaches -  the perfect place for long walks and plenty of fresh air.  Each lodge has been beautifully crafted in timber and decorated to the highest standards, from decked private terraces to contemporary cosy interiors; every detail at Retallack has been meticulously thought out to provide the perfect home from home.
