People often believe that Cornwall is just a summer holiday destination – but we all know that’s just not true! It’s the perfect place for year-round getaways!
So, how should you spend your time in Cornwall this September or October? Here’s a few of our favourite things to see and do…
- You can’t visit Cornwall in the autumn without taking in some of the fantastic local events that take place in the autumn months. Some of the most popular include the St Ives September Festival, which runs from the 14th-28th and sees over 300 events taking place at various venues across the town. This is a music, poetry, art, theatre and cinema extravaganza! If you’re looking for something little different then head to the south coast for the Falmouth Reggae Festival, held at Falmouth Cricket Club over the weekend of September 28th/29th.
- Nothing blows away the cobwebs quite like a walk on deserted beach on a blustery autumn day (or of an evening, as the is setting). Wrap up warm and head down onto the sands of nearby Holywell Bay, Perranporth or zip up the coast beyond Newquay and stretch your legs on Watergate Bay or Daymer Bay and enjoy plenty of those wind-in-your-hair moments! For serious walkers why not put your best foot forward on the South West Coast Path, which you can pick up from close to our Newquay holiday park?
- Are you ready for an adventure? Whether you’re a seasoned visitor to Cornwall or you’re planning your first trip to the far west of the UK, there is always somewhere new to discover. It’s the reason why people come back to these shores year after year, after all! So, why not go on an adventure on your Cornwall autumn break and head somewhere you’ve never been before? Why not visit the idyllic villages of the Lizard Peninsula, take a trek up Cornwall’s two moorland peaks of Roughtor and Brown Willy or head to the far west and visit the isolated villages of St Just In Roseland, Sennen Cove and Porthcurno in West Cornwall?
- Occasionally the weather can be a bit unpredictable and for the odd time that the heavens do open it’s always handy to have a few things to do up your sleeve. Handily, Cornwall has no shortage of top family attractions that are ideal for rainy days. Newquay Zoo, Blue Reef Aquarium, Camel Creek Adventure Park and Flambards are all fantastic days out – and great for keeping little ones entertained!
