Take a break from the norm and spend some time in Cornwall this Easter. You’ll be spoilt for choice of things to do. And with the evenings getting lighter and spring in the air it is a wonderful time to visit.
Cornwall’s gardens will be in bloom and you can make the most of quieter beaches and local attractions. Take a picnic to the beach or if the weather sends you indoors, head for a cosy pub or café for some lovely local food.
If you are heading to Cornwall, there is plenty on offer. Here are a few ideas:
