Below is a selection of a few activities taking place in April near our hotel in Fowey Cornwall, so why not take a look at see what activities you would like to take part in?

What's On: Gribbin Head Walk

The countryside just to the west of Fowey is a fantastic place to see a large variety of landscapes, beautiful views and many features of historical significance, including the Gribbin daymark, which was built as an aid to stop sailors mistaking the shallow waters of St Austell bay for the deeper waters found at Falmouth harbour.What's On Guide April Fowey Cornwall hotel in Fowey Gribbin Head Amanda Hoskin Incandescendo Antique Fair Cormorant Hotel & Restaurant

A walk around here will take you to many beaches and coves, as well as woodlands and an abundance of wild flowers. Gribbin Head is also famous due to the association with author Daphne du Maurier, and is the setting for many of her books.

The National Trust have outlined a route for visitors to the area to take, which is roughly four miles long, and should take around an hour and half (with longer taken if beach detours are taken!). This can be found on their website here.

What's On: Spring Garden Break

When? Throughout April

Continuing throughout April here at the Cormorant Hotel, we have a fantastic offer for anyone looking to take a spring break. We're offering a 3 night stay including breakfast and dinner, with tickets to two of Cornwall's best Spring Gardens.

Amanda Hoskin has emerged over the past fifteen years as one of Cornwall's leading landscape artists. She has spent many years walking the coast, which provides the inspiration for her works of art. Having lived in Fowey since the late 90's, her works of art come from the eyes of a native, who knows her subject inside and out.
