A PERFECT SPRING DAY
There is so much to do on our doorstep that it is hard to choose some top picks, however a perfect spring day residing on the Roseland would include; waking up with the early morning sunshine, strolling to the beach (Porthcurnick is just a few hundred yards down the lane) for a post breakfast dose of salty sea air accompanied by a hot coffee and perhaps a camera to capture the peaceful and perfect start to the day.
Back for breakfast enjoyed overlooking the sea before packing up the family and friends into the car and ‘commuting’ to nearby Falmouth on the Fal River ferry. Enjoy group paddle boarding lessons (Try WESUP for lessons, hire and trips) to enjoy the Cornish coast from a completely different angle. Once warm and dry stroll into the harbour town to enjoy excellent coffee (Our top pick is Espressini) an exhibition at the fantastic Maritime Museum or simply stroll the streets and enjoy the boutiques and boat views from the many piers.
If the sun is still shining high a couple of late afternoon options enroute back to The Rosevine include, taking in the beautiful bluebells at Enys Gardens in nearby Penryn. Cornwall is renowned for its breath-taking bluebell fields and April/May is the best time to enjoy. Another option is to drive to Truro and enjoy a walk around Malpas park. This is a popular recreation site for many locals including a play area, running track, cricket pitch, football fields, waterside walk and a couple of pubs along the way! Malpas is a wonderful place to enjoy an early evening stroll with a pint of local ale and a packet of crisps overlooking the estuary. There are also many Great Gardens of Cornwall, fabulous places at this time of year to learn about the Plant Hunters that make Cornwall’s gardens so special. The closest to The Rosevine are Trelissick, Trewithen, Caerhays and Lamorran.
