April is a splendid time to visit Cornwall. Perhaps the Easter holidays will fall in the fourth month of the year – everyone is desperate to have a break after the long dark winter – and the warmer temperatures and beautiful spring blooms do make Cornwall the obvious choice. The weather is mild, but the beaches are still relatively quiet. Hedgerows and gardens are all breathtaking. Yes, the sea is still chilly, and there’s a good chance of the showers for which April is renowned, but as long as you pack a few layers, with a waterproof outer in case of rain, it’s a pleasant time to be outside.
