Spring is in the Air!

Spring is in the Air!

AT LAST the evenings are finally drawing out to make way for those beautiful, dusky spring evenings we’ve been missing over winter.  
Whilst we love a cosy cottage in the colder months - lovely woodburners and crisp, frosty gardens - we’re more than ready for spring's colourful comeback!
Say hello to bright mornings, daffodils and a few less layers on your casual coastal treks. Here’s a quick run-down of some of our five favourite things we’re looking forward to this spring.

Not booked your spring getaway yet? Remember that our website has a fantastic range of holiday cottages, perfect for every kind of Cornish getaway - book now to avoid disappointment!

Ready? Lets Get Started...

1. Go Surfing!

Whilst we love our winter beach walks, we’re not brave enough to dip even a toe in the water much before March. So one of the things we’re most looking forward to this spring is getting back into a (slightly warmer) sea for a swim or a surf! Lifeguards start patrolling beaches from Easter weekend, so there's no better time to get out there!

2. Easter Egg Hunts

The Easter bunny has been extremely busy this year, stashing easter eggs in hideouts all over the county. Turn a scenic walk into an exciting egg hunt, giving the family some fresh air and picking up delicious treats along the way! Easter Egg hunts can be found at Lanhydrock House and Garden, Tintagel Castle, St Michael’s Mount and the Eden Project!

3. Falmouth Spring Festival

A huge number of events will be held between the 10th - 28th March as part of Falmouth’s vibrant Spring Festival. Local beaches and gardens will get a spring clean and runners will take on one of the most scenic half marathons in the country in aid of Cornwall Hospice Care. There will be Games on the Moor, a fabulous Spring Flower Show and, of course, the Cornish Folk and Cyder Festival. The full list of events which will be taking place can be found on the Falmouth Spring Festival website.

4. Go to the Theatre

By mid Spring the theatre season will be in full swing and this year Cornwall has a programme not to be missed! The Hall for Cornwall in Truro promises something for everyone: younger audiences will love the all-new stage adaptation of David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny and Peter Pan on Ice.
An Inspector Calls is arriving straight from the West End and the critically acclaimed Father will also tour here. Not to mention a full run of Chicago and A Midsummer Nights Dream by the RSC.
  The Minack Theatre is starting off it’s season of seaside theatre with a production of Oliver! plus a number of musical performances and productions by local theatre companies.

5. The Eden Sessions

Every year the Eden Project prepares a stella line up of musical acts to kick start the festival season. All performances are guaranteed to sell out so you’ll need to be quick about this one! Elton John, Paulo Nutini, Ellie Goulding and Oasis (to name a few) have all graced the stage. So far this year, performances by Lionel Richie and Tom Jones have been confirmed, with more acts on the way. Keep checking their website for more information!
