Spring in Cornwall

Arriving earlier than in most parts of the country, it’s not hard to tell when spring has sprung in Cornwall.

Beautiful gardens


 Colourful blossoms against clear blue skies, bird song and perfumed air – what could signal the start of spring better than that? There are many beautiful country gardens in Cornwall just waiting to be explored.

Thanks to the Gulf Stream, Cornwall enjoys milder weather resulting in spring arriving earlier in this part of the country. Discover a wealth of colour and vibrancy whilst making your way around one of the many spectacular gardens in Cornwall – and the best bit? At this time of year you’re likely to have them all to yourself.

Enjoying time with your four legged friend


Open space, golden sand and your four legged friend running free – this may be your last chance to make use of many of the Cornish beaches ahead of the dog ban over the summer months.

A great time to visit Cornwall, you’re likely to enjoy some sunshine without having to tackle the crowds. Your pooch will have a lovely time exploring the woodland, coastline and countryside too.

A piece of summer


Cornwall often enjoys a snapshot of summer at this time of year, with warm sunshine gracing the county for periods during the months of spring. This makes it the perfect time to get back outdoors.

Head down to the beach for an early BBQ with friends, set off on one of the many cycle trails with your bike or simply find your favourite outdoor spot at the local pub or café and enjoy Nature’s rebirth in a beautiful, largely unspoilt part of the world.
