Spring in Cornwall is a time when nature awakens from its winter slumber. The landscape erupts with vibrant colours, new growth, and fresh scents. From the rugged coastlines to the rolling countryside, The Headland is nestled in a region that celebrates the arrival of spring like no other.

One of the most iconic symbols of springtime in Cornwall is the sight of fields filled with daffodils. These golden beauties blanket the hillsides and valleys, creating a stunning display of yellow petals that seem to glow in the sunshine.

Another favourite among locals and tourists alike is the sight of magnolia trees in full bloom. Signifying the first signs of spring these delicate pink and white flowers are scattered across the county, adding a touch of romance and enchantment to the already breath-taking Cornish scenery. Caerhays Castle, a 50-minute drive from The Headland has one of the largest collection of magnolia trees in the UK with over 40 species.

The wildlife in Cornwall also comes out to play in spring. Seals bask on the rocks in the nearby ‘Gazzle’ while seabirds soar overhead. The coastline is a haven for birdwatchers, who flock to the area in search of rare species such as ospreys, peregrine falcons, and choughs. As well as springtime visitors choughs are also an emblem of Cornwall featuring on the county’s crest. Inland, the moors and woodlands come alive with the chatter of birds and buzzing of bees.
