We stayed at Trecco Bay caravan park, and so got a voucher for £10 off a visit to the Showcaves, we are a family of four (but our children are both under 3 years old, so we didn't have to pay for them to get in), so we only paid around £17 to get in. It was a drizzly day, and we didn't fancy the gales on the seafront, so we took our voucher and went off to see the dinosaurs and caves. It was brilliant! The kids loved the dinosaurs and the caves - it was a real adventure for them. We really enjoyed it too - the two larger caves are amazing; the cathedral cave is beautiful and the first cave is really long with some stunning formations in the stalactites/mites. The kids enjoyed both 'panning for gold' outside the cafe, and the 3D computerised 'paint the dinosaur' feature in the museum. We stayed for around 3/4 hours, and were just leaving when we thought we'd check out the Shire Horse Centre and found lots of animals there, not just horses. I think they were closing for the day, but the staff welcomed us and were really friendly and helpful. Our children were allowed to visit the Shetland Ponies before they were turned out into the field. Staff explained that the horses are rotated, so that one day the boys are out in the field whilst the girls meet the public and vice versa. The animals looked very well cared for and were content to let our little ones stroke them. It was a lovely day, the weather didn't spoil it at all- and as we got another £10 off with our entrance ticket we will probably visit again!
