It's often seen as a bit of a cliché - but Spring really is one of the best times to visit Cornwall. Although the weather may not look like it's co-operating at the moment - the fantastic climate in the South West alongside the warm atmosphere and coastal location means there's also things to do and stuff to make sure every day is an adventure in itself.
Gardens and Flowers
If you haven't visited the area in the Spring before - how about visiting some of the region's best gardens and areas of natural habitat? It's come of the best in the country, and camellia, rhododendron and magnolia are all out in force. Trebah, Tregothnan, Caerhays and Tresillian Gardens are all good places to start - four of the so called Great Gardens of Cornwall
The variety of walks in Cornwall during the spring are far too numerous to mention here - however if they've all got one thing in common, it's that they are all coastal and all factor in the beach at some stage! The areas around Godrevy, Gwithian, Hayle's 3 Miles of Golden Sands and the St. Ives to St. Just coast-road are sure-fire winners. There are fantastic views, brilliant pubs and fantastic wildlife to make the most of as winter turns into spring. Some of these areas are also home to our beautiful authentic Cornish Cottages!
Try Some Seafood and The Local Cuisine
The sun is still fading fast and there's a chill in the air so you'll want something warming - however the promise of summer salads and beach bbq's are too much to resist. Spring is a great time for Cornish cuisine - seafood dishes are especially popular, fresh and often lower in price during this time of year than they are in the summer!
These are just three examples of literally thousands of different things to do to mark the passing of winter in Cornwall. If there is one reccommendation from us - get out there, soak up the sunshine when we have it, feed off the atmosphere and enjoy the signs of the season gearing up once again. Stay in beautiful Cornish cottages - and let yourself relax!
