There is loads going on for children this Easter (generally involving chocolate!) including an Easter egg hunt and kids clubs here at Treworgey.  But to save you from total sugar-fuelled chaos, we’ve made sure our tips on the best days out this Easter include plenty of non-confectionary orientated activities! 

With the weather becoming milder and hopefully a greater chance of some sunshine, this is also a great time to enjoy walking or cycling in the splendour of the Cornish countryside, especially after an Easter lunch or before a jam-first Cornish cream tea.  See our other blogs for a host of suggestions for local walks and bike rides, especially if you’re looking for dog-friendly options.

Each child gets a pair of bunny ears, an activity pack, and an egg to take away – with chocolate treats on board for all, child or not!
