The Old Dairy Tregavethan, Truro, Cornwall

We've received this wonderful review from recent guests at The Old Dairy Tregavethan, they enjoyed it so much they're already thinking of returning for a second time this year...


"Thank you for making our booking and our stay last week so special. 

We holiday in Cornwall an awful lot as it's where I come from and where my family live. With three children we often book cottages rather than descend on my parents and as such have stayed in lots of different places...I have to say the your dairy is one of, if not the best place we have ever stayed. It just felt like home, from the lovely Easter cakes you left the children to the well equipped kitchen, flowers, playroom, clean travel cot, amazing garden, the list is endless. The location was just perfect with my Gran living in truro and my parents down west we were perfectly positioned to get everywhere, and we did! 

Apart from all that, wandering down your lane when the baby was tucked up and playing pooh sticks by the stream, watching the silly pheasant in the opposite field and drinking a glass of wine watching the sunset was just lovely, we didn't want to leave. We really hope to come back and stay soon. Hope you will have us again. 

With the very best wishes,

Gemma, Daniel, Daisy, Olivia and Noah"

Easter Holidays in Cornwall

Aside from all the wonderful activities Cornwall's natural landscape has to offer the visitor, here's a list of some of the more seasonal activities available to all ages across the region. 

As always the National Trust offer great easter activities across the whole country, here's the best Cornwall has to offer:

Glendurgan near Falmouth, are hosting easter egg trails form the 3rd-6th April, with prizes. If you're not a chocolate fan, but fancy losing a few children for a few minutes, their serpentine laurel maze is an added bonus. Unfortunately losing children is not guaranteed! 

Trelissick Gardens near Truro, have not yet advertised their Easter activities, however they do have great circular walks available which do not require entry to the gardens. There is a great cafe and woodland walks available all year round. You can see down the River Fal towards Falmouth. It's one of our favourite places to visit, especially with your four legged friends. 

At Cotehele in East Cornwall their easter trail is around the garden, so the adults get to enjoy the wonderful walled gardens while the children get to follow clues. Fun for all the family. Charges apply.  


Other activities over the Easter period...

If you are holidaying in St Mawes Arts and Crafts by the Sea are hosting events at Hotel Tresanton. Workshops are held on the 1st, 3rd & 5th April. See their Facebook page for details. 

Helston Museum has a rather interesting event running, celebrating the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carrolls 'Alice in Wonderland' adventures. A maze in the museum, navigated by your nose, to find your way out! Many themed events and prizes. 30th march - 8th April. 

Newquay Zoo have the a traditional egg hunt around the zoo with clues, with prizes available. 

It's best to see the 'What's on Cornwall' guide for activities closest to where you're staying.
