What to do in Cornwall in September

It is a common misconception that August is the best time to visit Cornwall, as that’s when all the fun happens. However, September is just as jam-packed with activities to suit every family, from festivals to competitions. Here at Trevornick we also have September plans, we are offering guests who book a week’s camping & touring holiday up to seven extra nights half price! Or if you fancy more luxury accommodation, choose from our Static Caravans, Cornish Cottages or brand-new Holiday Lodges.
