Spring has burst into life in the Duchy over the last week as the warm air blasted away the frigid winter temperatures and had people all over Cornwall venturing outside to make the most of the sun's rays.

Whether that was taking a bike out on our many cycle paths, lacing up walking boots for a trek over the moorland or simply enjoy a refreshing cider at one of Cornwall's beautiful beer gardens, when the sun shines there is no limit to what can be experienced down here in Cornwall.

With the weather only set to get better from here on out, read our guide on some of the best Spring activities for you to enjoy when staying at our Fowey accommodation below.

Porthleven Food Festival

Taking place on April 21st to 23rd in the beautiful harbour town of Porthleven is their annual food festival, with this year's set to be the biggest and tastiest yet with over 30,000 people expected to attend over the three-day event. The festival is suitable for all ages, from a family field for the young ones, live music, over 150 food stalls showcasing local and international produce, a literary and acoustic tent and live demonstrations from some of the nation's finest chefs make for an event not to be missed!

Walk The South Coast Eastern AONB Path

Whether you take a bike or walk it with your faithful the path that follows this area of the designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is one that should be seen by everyone when staying at our Fowey accommodation

Follow the gorgeous River Fowey where you will see creeks, ancient oak woods that date back to the Iron Age, medieval enclosures and even vineyards... yes, we make our own wine down here in Cornwall, not just award-winning cider! Keep an eye out for the native wildlife such as birds of prey, otters, porpoises and native fauna!

Hidden Valley Gardens

The best way to see how Spring affects the landscape is to visit one of our many public gardens to see flowers and plants bloom into life. Just outside of St. Austell is the Hidden Valley Gardens and has many themes including a Mediterranean area, vibrant herbaceous and cottage garden beds, a 'hot' border and an iris garden for you to gaze at.

The garden is well-labelled so even if you're not clued up on horticultural terms you'll be able to find your way through the vast array of colourful blooms, and you can even bring along your pooch! The garden also has a nursery where you can pick up a large selection of plant species to create your own secret garden!

Bowman Yacht Charters

Experience the open seas by jumping aboard a yacht and cruising the beautiful south coast waters. No experience is needed, with it being suitable for solo travellers, couples and families; as you have a skipper manning the boat so you can sit back, relax and take in the outstanding views. Although the crew will actively try to get you involved to learn the ropes, steer, hoist sails and generally embrace the sea lifestyle aboard their luxurious yacht.
