Best Places in Cornwall For Bluebell Spotting

In a couple of weeks time the woodlands of Cornwall will be filled with a sea of blue. One of the best parts of spring is taking a stroll on a sunny day and seeing the bright blue sky, the fresh new green leaves and a carpet of beautiful bluebells. We've put together the best places in Cornwall for bluebell spotting...

St Loy's Cove nr Penzance

The most amazing secret cove with a beach covered in rocks that look like giant dinosaur eggs, incredible views, crystal clear blue water and a beautiful wooded valley leading down to the sea which is filled with bluebells. Walk down from the car park on the B3315 or if you fancy a longer hike then follow the coast path round from Lamorna Cove for one of the prettiest walks of your life!

Tremayne Quay nr Helford

A walk through the woods along the banks of the Helford River to Tremayne Quay is filled with gorgeous river views, gnarled old oak trees and carpets of bluebells. Tremayne Quay is the perfect sunny spot for a picnic.

Porth Farm nr St Anthony

Another riverside walk, this time on the Roseland Peninsula. There is parking at Porth Farm or you can even park in St Mawes and get the Place foot ferry across to add a little excitement to the day! Just follow the path at the edge of the river for a journey into peaceful woods with just the sound of birds calling, the water lapping at the shore and the rustle of leaves in the breeze.

Idless Woods nr Truro

Did you know that this is listed by the Forestry Commission as one of their top 10 sites in the UK for bluebells? That's enough for us to be heading there as soon as we spot the first signs of blue!

Tehidy Woods nr Redruth

This is a classic spot to see the bluebells in Cornwall, but as it is so close to our shop we just had to include it! It's a great spot to explore, walk the dog or tire out the kids on their bikes. Pop by and say hello to us afterwards!

Penrose Estate nr Helston

Wandering down to the sea through the beautiful Penrose Estate, around the edge of the huge lake and onto the beach is one of our favourite walks in the spring. The woodlands are filled with bluebells, the lake is busy with birds and the calm of the woodland slowly gives way to the rush and roar of the ocean as you reach the shore.

Godolphin Estate nr Helston

An amazing National Trust house and estate that feel untouched by time. Always quieter than other NT properties in Cornwall, there are over 500 acres to explore along with the incredible house and medieval gardens.

Enys Gardens nr Penryn

You can't mention bluebells in Cornwall without mentioning Enys Gardens! Famed throughout the county for their incredible bluebell display, if you only visit one place make it this one!
