Five things to do in Cornwall this Easter

Mingo-Boscowen Fields-Falmouth

Cornwall is a hive of activity at Easter time. Here are our top five things to do over the Easter holiday.
Walk the coastal paths with the dog
In the changeable weather of early spring taking Mole and Mingo for a long walk along the coastal path is a pure pleasure and is a favourite blustery adventure of everyone at Cornish Holiday Cottages. Crashing waves, salty spray and sleepy fishing villages all await exploration. You could pick any section of the Cornish coast and find something unique along the way. The path between Swanpool and Maenporth is a convenient starting point if you’re staying in our Cornish holiday accommodation. There are dog friendly beaches at either end (in the winter), dog friendly cafes and depending on the tide, a lot of rock pools and crevasses to sniff at.

 

Sunday Lunch at the Star and Garter, Falmouth
There’s nothing like a good Sunday roast, especially at Easter. In their own words, at the Star and Garter ‘Sunday lunch is sacrosanct.’ And with chefs that have all worked at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen they are producing one of the finest Sunday lunches in town. With an elevated view of the river Fal and sailing boats bobbing up and down in their moorings, you are treated to a quintessentially Cornish view with your succulent meat, monster Yorkshire pudding and seasonal veg.

The Great Eden Egg Hunt
25 Mar 2016 to 10 Apr 2016

It’s not just your standard egg hunt down at Eden. It’s a regular eggstravaganza. There’s an eggstreme egg and spoon obstacle course, egg rolling, egg hooking, egg cracking and egg hunting. If you like eggs, then there’s something for all ages. If you don’t like eggs? Then they’ll be telling tales of chocolate in the biomes to appease you.

 

Trereife Easter Food and Craft Fair

25 Mar 2016 to 28 Mar 2016

Trereife House’s Easter Food and Craft Fair is now entering its fourth year. The spectacular grounds of Queen Anne Manor House will be home to cookery and craft demonstrations for the adults and an eggs-treamly popular Easter egg hunt for the children. You can go on tours of the house itself, watch demonstrations from local chefs, sample a delectable selection of locally produced food and drink, and browse exquisite arts and crafts. There will also be magic shows, funky food workshops and storytellers.

 
The Truro Festival
2 Apr 2016 to 9 Apr 2016

The city’s annual cultural festival features music, art, exhibitions, theatre, dance, comedy, film, literature and photography.

There will also be an abundance of art and interactive exhibits at the 2016 festival. Daily workshops featuring local illustrators, comic book illustrators, manga artists, screen print-makers and puppeteers will be on offer for children and adults in the festival hub on Lemon Quay. Street art is also a big favourite and the city’s streets will be filled with creative flair once again.

Events will be on in lots of different venues throughout the city. Go to www.enjoytruro.co.uk for further information.

Easter activities at Glendurgan and Trebah Gardens

Springtime is a unique time for Cornwall’s gardens. Daffodils, magnolias and tulips create a canvas of colour and each of these gardens has something special for the children over the Easter period. Glendurgan has a Cadbury’s sponsored egg hunt, while Trebah have Bunnie Bungalows Drop in Workshop. We’re not sure what it is yet, but we do like a surprise.
