Best Days Out Cornwall

bluebells in woods

Where can you find bluebells across Cornwall this spring?

Posted in News by Lauren Webb on 12th May 2023

The sight of bluebells in spring is a beautiful experience and with over half of the world’s bluebells flowering in Britain, it’s a true part of our spring rituals here in the UK. We’ve put together some great ideas for the places in Cornwall you can find some incredible bluebell displays.

Our colleagues at the National Trust recently told us:

Mike Beeston National Trust Gardens & Parks Advisor for the National Trust said: “Those winter blues seem to melt away when bluebells are mentioned. These true heralders of spring are as much a key part of our natural heritage as any other flower. Stand at the edge of a bluebell wood breathe in deeply, take in the delicate sweet scent and marvel at one of nature’s truly spectacular events.  Bluebells are slow to establish themselves, so if you stumble upon a deeply carpeted blue haze it’s likely to be ancient woodland.”
