Spring is just around the corner in Cornwall. From mid-February onwards, you can really notice that the days are finally lengthening after the darkness of the winter months. With the increase in light, we begin to feel our spirits lift. The land cracks open and new life springs forth in the form of snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils, bright heralds of the changing season.

Shake off the winter gloom and get outside and discover the magic of spring in Cornwall. These are dozens of gardens to choose from. At Bosinver, we’re lucky to have several, including the Lost Gardens of Heligan, right on our doorstep.
