Spring In Cornwall: What To Look Forward To


Although we are yet to be graced with warm sun, we have plenty to look forward to now spring is so close.

From admiring beautiful bluebells to visiting little piglets, we have so much to get excited about! 

Explore a garden bursting with colour


Spring is a beautiful time of year, and the perfect chance to experience the beauty that surrounds us. Due to Cornwall’s warm climate, we can really appreciate the stunning flowers that bloom during this time of year.

Look forward to spring flowers such as Magnolias, Camellias, Rhododendrons and Hydrangeas. Catch sight of them at Trelissick garden, where you will be surrounded by bursts of colour and stunning sights.

This woodland garden is a great day out, especially when the sun is shining. Look over the stunning Fal banks and admire the lovely maritime views. The garden is filled with flowers and trees reaching back to 1870 - so take a walk among paths of flowering cherry trees, and look over luscious lawns.

The best time of year to admire the beauty is in May, when exotic flowers will be blooming with colour and hopefully baby blue skies.

Get your camera out because you will have loads of beauty to capture!

Meet piglets at Trevaskis and have a cream tea


Head to Trevaskis Farm for a countryside experience like no other. There’s a huge farm to be explored, all for free. Pull your wellies on and bring along the little ones, because they are going to love what’s in store.

Stroll around the farm, and meet many farm animals on your travels – they’re all sign posted so don’t worry about not finding your favourite! Our favourite thing to do is visit the piglets, they will be probably playing around in the mud or hanging out with mumma pig!

When spring truly arrives you will be able to pick the many fruit and vegetables in the farm, simply pick and pop into a basket – then take to the shop to pay for your goodies.

If you’re still wanting more of Trevaskis, head into the restaurant and why not treat yourself to a cream tea? They are an excellent treat, with fruity jam and the creamiest cream. Tuck in and enjoy!

Fancy a cream tea elsewhere? Check out some of our favourites here.

Walk among the woodlands and meet new friends


Woodland walks are a must during spring. With beautiful flowers making an appearance, and don’ forget to keep an eye out for wildlife.

Tehidy is a fine spot to admire just this. It’s the largest woodland in West Cornwall and provides a whole range of paths to discover. Including, ponds, lakes, streams and towering trees – you will find endless discovery around every corner.

If you enter Tehidy via the South Drive, you will access a beautiful part of the woodland. Towering trees, winding paths and glistening lakes are all here waiting to be admired. There’s tons of wildlife, from cheeky squirrels, birds, ducklings and elegant swans! It will be a glorious walk, and a perfect afternoon to spend with the family.

Don’t forget your wellies! It’s going to get muddy. And if you’re fancying a hot brew or a tasty treat, there’s a café just beside the car park to keep you warm!

Easter Eggs!


One thing we are super excited about it Easter! This year you can make a difference, with our Easter Egg Appeal with CHICKS Charity.

Easter Egg Trails: St Michael’s Mount, 25th, 27th, 28th March


Alongside Easter eggs, we are also excited to get stuck into an Easter egg hunt! St Michael’s Mount are holding story-telling, an Easter Egg Trail and a great family day out filled with exciting activities!

It will all be held within The Mount’s village. What a magical setting to experience this family day out!

Falmouth Spring Festival: 10th – 28th March


Falmouth will be celebrating spring in style this year. The festival brings the community together for a fun filled day of bursts of colour, dancing and loads of community spirit.

Whether you want to take part in a beach clean, run half a marathon in aid of Cornwall Hospice Care or attend the Spring Flower Show – there’s a little something for everyone to enjoy.

There will even be music to dance to at the Folk and Cider Fayre. Listen to brilliant bands, and enjoy the best ciders around.

That’s not all! So head to Falmouth’s website for all the latest events – get that diary out!

Head to the beach


When the evenings grow lighter and the sun shines a little more, a visit to the beach can be such a treat.

Walk and admire the sea, feel the sand between your toes and maybe you could even catch the beautiful sunset in an evening.

Or maybe you would rather go surfing? There are a whole number of great spots to embrace the waves, read here for surfing locations worth the visit.

Cornwall Spring Flower Show: Boconnoc House, Lostwithiel – 2nd & 3rd April


In April, Spring will have well and truly arrived. Head on over to the Boconnoc Estate, it’s a beautiful setting with an 18th century mansion, home to 100 deer and this very location was used for our beloved Poldark.

They're holding Cornwall's Spring Flower Show and you don't want to miss it.
