Easter is the beginning of Spring. We are starting to thaw out after those chilly winter months with the days getting longer and a little warmer. We are looking forward to the Easter holidays.
Early April is a wonderful time to visit Cornwall before the busy summer months. Cornwall is alive with activities – main attractions will all be open for Easter egg hunts, enjoy some early Spring sunshine on the coastal path or spend some time on the beach.
