Fathers’ Day is the perfect time to spend some quality time with Dad.
But it’s not always easy to buy him a gift he’ll love – he’s got most things he needs. An experience can be a fantastic alternative to socks, aftershave and books, and has been shown to improve relationships and create lasting memories.
Here are some of the best things to do* with Dad on Fathers’ Day:
Take a wine tour
Don’t just buy him a bottle of something. Take him on a tour of the vineyard where it was made, and share in the tasting experience.
Camel Valley Vineyard in Cornwall offers tours throughout the year, where you can share their passion, see the winery process, tour the vineyard and sample some of the finished product.
Walk the Cornish coastpath
As Fathers’ Day is mid-June, we hope that the weather will behave and give us wall to wall sunshine. With the longest day falling in the week following Fathers’ Day, why not get away to the coast this June.
Walk the stunning coastline, stopping at a little harbour for ice-creams or a cool drink on the way. The views are breath-taking, and you may spot dolphins, seals, basking sharks or even a humpback whale on your travels.
You don’t need to spend a fortune to enjoy quality time together this Fathers’ Day. Sometimes, a simple board game can be the best way to bring the whole family together.
If you can keep the Monopoly rage at bay, playing boardgames can trigger amusing and precious memories from childhood.
Explore the coast by sea
There’s no better way to see the beauty of Cornwall than from the sea. Why not take Dad on a boat trip around the hidden coves and secret bays, or hire kayaks and steer your own way around the coast.
From a different perspective, you’ll be amazed just how peaceful a busy tourism county can be, even in the Summer.
Dine out in style
Treat Dad to a meal out in a restaurant he’ll remember. There are many award-winning restaurants in Padstow, which is less than 15 minutes from your Ocean Blue holiday accommodation.
Many specialise in fresh seafood, all guarantee rich flavours, and some offer far-reaching views across the famous harbour and out to sea.
However you spend Fathers’ Day, make it one to remember this year.
Push the boat out and enjoy a stay in Cornwall to celebrate, checking into Ocean Blue, with its luxury interior, fabulous views and peaceful location.
