Thank goodness the days are starting to get longer and there’s a real sense of spring in the air!
Don’t you just love this time of year! All the spring plants are wakening up to greet the world with an array of yellow and purple – what a wonderful time to experience nature and all that Cornwall has to offer!
Throughout March and April, ther is a real sense of hope and optimism in the air as all the spring flowers start to put on a show and the trees show the first signs of blossom. If you are able to visit “out of season”, it’s well worth it; many of the local attractions are starting to open their doors and it is a great value time of year to take a holiday.
And best of all, the many natural attractions in and around Bude, such as the miles of sandy beach, the stunning South West Coast path, Bude canal and Sea Pool are free to use and open whatever time of year you visit! And during March and April, chances are you may not have to share them with many people either!
If you are staying in a cottage at Broomhill Manor in Bude during the spring, the gardens are a real treat. Usually the first spring flowers to show are the snowdrops, followed quickly by daffodils, narcissi and crocus. Already the purple heathers, viola, many varieties of primula, hyacinths and winter pansies are putting on a good show and the blossom trees are starting to bud!
If your holiday at Broomhill Manor includes Easter Sunday, you are also invited to the Annual Easter Egg Hunt!
The Broomhill Manor Easter Egg Hunt has become a traditional part of our spring calendar and your children will love combing the grounds of Broomhill Manor for Easter goodies – hopefully not too much chocolate to put them off Sunday lunch!
And when the chocolate is gone, there are all the on-site facilities to enjoy – everything is open (other than the outdoor pool – still a bit chilly for that, even though it is heated!) – including horse riding and the popular archery.
The heated indoor pool, Jacuzzi, gym, sauna, spa treatments, bar and snooker room, provide enjoyment especially for the “grown-ups” and the Under 6’s playroom, outdoor play areas, table tennis, pool and table football are always popular with our younger visitors.
And for tennis fans, our recently resurfaced tennis court is ready and waiting for your ace serves! Not forgetting the In-Cottage Dining service to save you having to cook. It might be a self-catering cottage, but you need a holiday too!
Although Easter weeks tend to be popular there is still availability and excluding Easter school holidays, short breaks are available from March to May.
