Cornwall Banks on Bank Holiday
7:01am 17th April 2014
Could an Easter weekend of sunshine help Cornwall make up for the storms?
Thousands are set to descend on the Duchy for the double bank holiday.
There were reports of a 25% drop in bookings - but now some places say they've had a flurry of last minute calls.
Some of that is being helped after the rail line at Dawlish got fixed, leading to a flood of positive publicity.
Clare Reynolds from Trevornick at Holywell Bay reckons things are looking up: "Two or three years ago people were booking a year in advance for their holiday. Now we find that people are hanging on to see what the weather's like - and then booking quite last minute.
"But the bookings are coming in - which is positive."
Teresa Greenaway runs Down Ende B&B in Widegates, near Looe and said: "Now the sun's out actually the holidays are looking pretty good.
"We've had a very bad two or three years leading up to this. But we're cautiously optimistic we're going to have a better year this year. The sun being out and Easter being late are all good things."
