Spring breaks in Cornwall

We all know that Cornwall is an extremely popular destination for summer holidays, but did you know that it’s also a great choice for a spring getaway?

Springtime in Cornwall is just as picture-postcard perfect as summer but its often much quieter, so you can explore all that our region has to offer minus the queues and congestion that’s so often associated with those peak weeks.

But just how should you spend your spring break in Cornwall? What should be on your to-do list? Where should you visit? Prepare to be inspired as we answer all these questions and more…

Things to see and do on a Cornwall spring break

We can’t talk about Cornwall without talking about its coastline. After all, it’s what makes our region so unique! No holiday in Cornwall is complete without time spent exploring the coast and, here at Hendra Holiday Park, we’re blessed with a great location, just a few minutes’ from some of Cornwall’s best beaches!

During the spring months Cornwall’s beaches are often very quiet so you’re free to enjoy miles of golden, sandy beaches at your leisure. Close to our holiday park you’ll find a variety of stunning beaches, all just waiting to be explored.

The nearest and, in our opinion, some of the best are just a short distance away. The beaches around Newquay are renowned and there’s no fewer than 7 stretches of sand where you can spend your time. From the iconic Fistral Beach and popular Towan Beach in the centre of Newquay to the impressive Crantock Beach and Watergate Bay just outside the town, you really are spoilt for choice!

Many of the county’s beaches also allow dogs during the spring months, so your four-legged friends can stretch their legs too…

Spring breaks in Cornwall are made for exploring!

As much as we love the beaches they’re not the only reason to visit Cornwall in the spring. It’s also a wonderful time to put your best foot forward and enjoy some breathtaking walks.

From the rugged landscape of Bodmin Moor, the heathland of the Lizard Peninsula and the spectacular South West Coast Path, there’s hundreds of miles of footpaths and routes just waiting for you.

Soak up some Cornish culture

Another popular activity we’d recommend on a spring break in Cornwall is to visit one of the many historic houses and country estates– and there’s lots of them!

Many are owned by The National Trust including the likes of nearby Trerice Manor, Lanhydrock House & Estate and Trelissick.

Spend some time wandering around the manicured gardens, learn more about the history of these impressive estates and the role they played in Cornwall’s rich mining heritage past.

Places to visit on a spring break in Cornwall

Located in mid Cornwall, close to the north coast, our Cornwall caravan park is perfectly located for you to explore all that this county has to offer. Whether you want to explore the far north of Cornwall or head west down to Land’s End, there’s just so many places to visit.

In fact, there’s just so many places we recommend that you simply have to come back time and again! To help you plan your spring break we’ve put together five places we think you should certainly consider…

  1. Fowey: Located on Cornwall’s south coast, it’s a striking beautiful place. Explore the narrow streets of this harbour town, browse the independent shops and galleries and enjoy a boat trip on the Fowey River
  2. Mevagissey: Just along the coast from Fowey is ‘Meva’ as it’s known locally. Another picture-perfect harbour town, don’t forget to pack your camera!
  3. St Ives: Head west along the north coast and visit the popular resort of St Ives, which is crammed full of shops, restaurants and galleries. It’s also home to some striking beaches and the Tate St Ives gallery. A great day out.
  4. The Lizard Peninsula: The UK’s most southerly landmass is a place that feels very different to the rest of Cornwall. Dotted around the perimeter of this peninsula are lots of must-visit fishing villages including the likes of Cadgwith, Mullion and Coverack which are well worth a visit.
  5. Truro: Cornwall may only have one city, but it is rather special. With an impressive cathedral at its heart, Truro is an ideal place to explore – especially if the wet weather means the beach is not an option. Truro is Cornwall’s administration hub (with council HQ and hospital located here) and is also a place where you can enjoy some serious retail therapy!

Whether you’re considering a caravan holiday, camping, touring or glamping, Hendra Holiday Park is the perfect place for a spring break in Cornwall.
