One of the most beautiful seasons of all is upon us, and there are plenty of ways to enjoy it here in Cornwall.
The transitional seasons of Spring and Autumn are my favourite, and they are one of the main reasons why I couldn’t live abroad somewhere where it’s hot all year around – you’d miss out on all the beauty!
Anyway, Spring is truly beautiful in Cornwall; the weather gets warmer, evenings are brighter, and it’s not quite full of tourists just yet!
If you’re looking for some ways to enjoy this spectacular season here, look no further!

Looking forward to this! Thinking about taking Pepper as it looks like a great way to knacker her out with a dog show and activities throughout the day!
Beer and Mussel Festival (with Rick Stein) at The Cornish Arms, Padstow
