4 reasons to visit Cornwall this Spring

With blooming coastal flowers, crowd-less beaches, and lots of events and things to do, spring is indeed a special time to visit Cornwall. To bring you out of the winter blues, take a look at our top 4 reasons to visit Cornwall this spring.

 

1. Cornwall is the first place to feel spring

Aquilegia At Glendurgan, Cornwall

The Cornish peninsula is the first place in the country to experience spring’s rejuvenation, with flora and fauna appearing much earlier than you expect. Gardens also have a more exotic feel and cultivate species of plants you won’t find anywhere else in the country. Here are a few places for the itinerary:

  1. National Trust Glendurgan (pictured above): a microclimate with palm trees near the tranquil banks of the Helford River
  2. The Lost Gardens of Heligan: beautiful gardens restored in the 90’s after being neglected since the First World War
  3. The Eden Project: the famous bubble greenhouses that house plants from all over the world

TOP TIP: don’t miss the bluebells in Cornwall! Best places to go are Lanhydrock, Penrose Estate or Godolphin House (bring the National Trust membership card)

2. Coastal walking

Walking Holidays in Cornwall

As it gets warmer, why not add a spring in your step and go walking down the coast path? Experience the season unfold before you with colourful wildflowers blooming on the cliffs and hedgerows. Here are three of our favourite walks:

3. (Almost) Dog friendly beaches

Dog bans come into effect after the Easter weekend, so make the most of it until then. Never fear though, if you want to bring the dog there are some great beaches that remain dog friendly all year round:

  • Gwithian/Mexico Towans (pictured above): plenty of space for you and your four-legged friend to play
  • Fistral Beach: arguably the best beach in Newquay…
  • Kennack Sands: the Lizard’s best kept secret

4. Events!

Eating A Pasty

There are plenty of events happening during the spring, which gives you lots of reasons to visit. Here are just a few:

  • 29 February: World Pasty Championships at the Eden Project
  • April: Easter Egg Hunts — try National Trust places
  • 5 March: St Piran’s Day — celebrate the most Cornish date in the calendar
  • 8 May: Flora Day, another typically Cornish event in Helston which you won’t find anywhere else

If you do feel like making a visit to Cornwall this spring, stay in one of our coastal cottages, chalets, boltholes and barns.
