Spring is a beautiful time to visit Cornwall – the flowers are blooming, the birds are singing, and there is nowhere better for enjoying a blustery clifftop walk topped off with a pub lunch or afternoon cream tea. If you are considering bringing the family for an Easter break there are plenty of activities to keep the whole clan occupied.
