Spring has Sprung!
Well, here in Cornwall, Spring has well and truly sprung! Colourful flowers are eagerly erupting from their winter slumber and colour is added to the countryside once more. As the air fills with warmth, it slowly feels like the world is coming back to life. It is a beautiful time of the year and provides the perfect chance to get back out and about in Cornwall!
Kicking off April is the Cornwall Spring Flower Show, hosted by Boconnoc Estate on 5th & 6th of the month. Described as a ‘fragrant celebration of Cornish garden mania’, the show boasts exuberant displays with camellias, daffodils, rhododendrons guaranteeing a colourful spectacle.
If it’s animal antics that you’re after, then head to Newquay Zoo who will be offering a variety of Easter themed activities including duck races and daily animal work shops! Ideal for those with children, Dairyland Farm World will be running their Easter Egg Hunt whilst Cornwall’s Crealy Adventure park are opening three new rides, in celebration of their 25th anniversary!
For those fortunate enough to be holidaying at Retallack Resort and Spa this Easter, we have an abundance of Children’s activities on offer.
For the ultimate way to entertain even the most adventurous child, we are offering Archery Afternoon’s on Wednesday 9th and 16th April. Under the supervision of our Master Bowman, your budding Girl on Fire or Robin Hood will be able to learn the basic skills as well practising various ways to hit the target.
Returning on Saturday 19th April, is our ‘Quacking Easter Egg Hunt’! A truly fun way to explore the resort, the hunt will be led by one of our Kids Club team leaders who will entertain and inform, whilst you and your child keep your eyes peeled for the colourful foil of the chocolate eggs which have been hidden away from view!
Spring is also a great time to hit the beach and, as Cornwall is surrounded by the sea, you can’t visit and not get sand between your toes at least once during your stay! By Easter, the sea has started to warm up and many life guards return to their ‘Baywatch’ duties. Why not make up an Easter picnic hamper, complete with hot cross buns, and head to the beach to enjoy the breath taking scenery?
With all of this and more, why would you go anywhere else? On that note….there’s the sun so er, I best be off! Well, I couldn’t possibly recommend these things without trying them…could I?!
