7 Easter Egg Hunts In Cornwall This Easter Holidays

Spring is here and the Easter Bunny plans to be very busy this Easter in Cornwall. We are all hoping for a warm and settled Easter in St Ives which will make days out hunting for Easter eggs all the more joyful!

If you have booked a holiday cottage in St Ives over the Easter period that spans between the 31st March and 17th April this year, then we invite you to take a look at what is going on near you while on your holidays to St Ives. If you have booked a dog-friendly holiday cottage then we have good news for you, the beaches are still all open for dogs with no restrictions and most of the Easter Egg hunts below will happily accept your dog’s participation too (on a lead of course!).

Simply click on the headings below and find out more information on the places of interest and where they are on a map. Our team at Orange Roofs are also really happy to help whether you’ve booked a holiday cottage with us this time or planning on doing so in the future. We can’t help but share our love for Cornwall, so give us a call on 01736 806100 and we will be happy to help.
