We love the Easter holidays in Cornwall. Here on the Roseland we welcome visitors all year round, but Easter is when you start to feel that little buzz of excitement.
Around Easter is when cafes and holiday activity centres open up for the season, or those that have been ticking over through the winter fling open their doors for longer hours. The lighter evenings bring more choice of things to do and with any luck there will be sunshine, tempting us all onto the water. It's a little early to go in the sea for most of us, but many of our visitors love wild swimming. The other option is a wetsuit, of course. Right now I'm keeping quiet about the weather given how very British it's been lately, but it's always beautiful here.
Visitors love short breaks on the Roseland year-round and coastal cottages are ideal for couples looking for a quiet break, or even writers and artists looking for a snug hideaway to work without distractions. Being on the eastern side of Cornwall makes the Roseland easily accessible for short breaks as well as longer holidays, and most of our cottages can be booked for a few days as well as full weeks or longer.
But the Easter vacation signals the arrival of families, and I love to watch kids (of all ages) having fun outdoors and discovering all the Roseland has to offer. Rockpooling is just as much fun in wellies as barefoot! For indoor activities, why not start with the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, at Falmouth? As well as the permanent exhibits I think the Pirate School (until 15th April) is a must, don't you?
Before long we'll have the May bank holiday too, and then we know summer is really starting to take shape. Our holiday cottages are deservedly popular so I do advise booking well ahead, although we always try to have some late-availability cottages and special offers for you. Come try us!
