Top 5 Family Activities This Easter in Cornwall

Charlotte Ballam

The Secret Garden - The Minack Theatre - Porthcurno, TR19 6JU

"When a garden’s kept proper, all weeded and neat that chases the wild away. But when it is left alone, for nature, who knows what secret things’d grow there."

The rolling Yorkshire Dales meet the sea in an unmissable opportunity to see the much-loved classic 'The Secret Garden' brought back to life at this unique and awe-inspiring venue. The Minack theatre is set into the cliffs of Porthcurno (about half an hour's drive from Sail Lofts five star accommodation) and is a sight to behold in itself. Whether you go for the show or just to take a look around, you won't have seen anything quite like it. Visit The Minack for tickets and more information.

Showing April 9,10,11,12,15,16,17,18 at 7.30pm & April 9,11,13,16,18,19 at 2pm.

Cinema on the Beach - Porthmeor Beach

Following great success last year the Cornish Cinema Club will be back on Porthmeor beach this Easter, kicking off with the highly acclaimed Bohemian Rhapsody.

Golden Egg Hunt - Healey's Cider Farm - Truro, TR4 9LW

Cider and chocolate? Arguably something for everyone! Take a trip to the cider farm responsible for the famous Cornish Rattler this Easter. Entry to the farm is free along with parking, be sure to pick up a map from the visitor centre and hunt down the egg shaped signs hidden in various nooks and crannies. Each egg contains a letter that will make up a clue as to where the Golden Egg is hidden! Meet friendly rabbits, goats, horses and pigs on your way around the farm and discover the egg to claim your treat. Dogs on leads are more than welcome to join the hunt so if you're staying in our dog friendly accommodation no one need be left out of the fun. Visit Healey's website for more activities on offer, including tractor rides, apple pressing and much more.
