There will be no better place to be than Cornwall this Easter, and with a four-day weekend, there are many things for you to enjoy doing with your loved one when staying at our luxury Fowey accommodation, located on the bank of the River Fowey. With spring finally here, the sun shining and no children to worry you, you can sit back and relax with some Easter activities.

Have an Easter picnic

Before indulging in a delicious meal at our restaurant on Easter Sunday, then why not head to a local shop, stock up on some cold meats, hot cross buns and any other fun picnic food - with an Easter theme - and head for the countryside or the beach for a relaxing Easter picnic. Soak up the sunshine and explore some beautiful parts of the Cornish countryside in the afternoon.

Take a beach stroll

The sun seems like it is here to stay, and we think you should make the most of the lovely spring sun and head to the beach. Though the water is still too cold to take a dip in, the beaches are lovely at this time of year, and even though it is the school holiday, not too crowded. At any time of the day, head to a beach near Fowey - Lantic Bay is a favourite - and stroll along the golden sands, or hike up to the neighbouring cliffs and headlands to enjoy a breath-taking panoramic view.

Catch a ferry boat ride

Take a ferry or boat ride on a day out. There are many places in Cornwall, some close to our hotel in Fowey; there you can hop on for a short boat ride. Venture along stunning estuaries, or go further afield out into the sea. Even the shortest boat ride can be a lot of fun, and you could even spot some interesting wildlife when out to sea, such as porpoise or dolphins!

Visit a garden in bloom

Now spring has officially arrived, it seems all the flowers have too. Many of the local gardens are in full bloom and are great to visit over Easter weekend. Try the ever-popular Lost Gardens of Heligan or Lanhydrock near Bodmin, which is home to a wonderful collection of 130 varieties of magnolia, which flower later than other Cornish gardens. You might even see some early bluebells emerging in the woodland areas of these gardens around Easter.

Go on a spring countryside walk

If you want to avoid all the Easter egg hunts taking place at various attractions around Cornwall, then head off the beaten track and go on a countryside walk. There are many lovely walking routes to choose that are near to Fowey, and there is also the South West Coast Path which offers many delights. Keep an eye out for some wildlife such as cuckoos in the woods to seabirds on the cliffs, and enjoy seeing wildflowers in bloom along the hedgerows.

Explore a stately home

It is always good to have a backup idea if the weather turns, and one of Cornwall's stately homes is a great place to start. Places like Port Eliot House and Garden, Cotehele House and Gardens and Caerhays Castle and Gardens are fun to explore when the rain comes, offering another side to Cornwall's history. And if the weather stays nice, the gardens of these grand country homes are great to wander through, as there are mazes, formal gardens and parkland to see.
