Here at Merchant House hotel Truro, we’re always keen to get our walking boots on and explore some of Cornwall’s gorgeous landscapes! So we’re suggesting two of our favourite walks to inspire you to get active this spring…
A Beautiful Spring Walk in Cornwall – Enys Gardens
If you’ve ever dreamed of stepping into a field of bluebells, Enys Gardens is the place to go for a spring walk in Cornwall. A Cornish secret, Enys Gardens offers you the opportunity to have a beautiful walk surrounded by flowers from all over the world while nature revitalises the soul.
The gardens span over 30 acres and showcases breath-taking carpets of bluebells, ponds with a waterwheel, flower gardens including a New Zealand garden, and woodland areas for you to explore.
There’s also Enys itself (the house), which is available to view on weekends when there’s an Art Exhibition or craft fair. The house has been restored in areas while the model farm buildings and stable blocks provide visitors the chance to view the history room, which has plenty of information for heritage lovers.
A Historical Spring Walk in Cornwall – Caerhays Estate
If you’re in the mood for a long walk steeped in history, pay a visit to Caerhays Castle and its massive 140 acres of gardens. The castle is situated on a beautiful part of the coastline, which has stunning views, steep valleys, floral history, and plenty of activities to make it a fun day out!
Enjoy a castle tour and step on the bricks of history, or wander around the internationally renowned gardens that hold a ‘world class’ reputation. What’s more, if you fancy braving the cold water, you can even have a paddle and a stroll on the sand on one of the stunning beaches!
