The leaves are falling from the trees, the days are cooler and the Summer seems a long time ago…. But don’t give up on holidays just yet.
Now is the perfect time to visit Cornwall, when the roads are quieter and the beaches are empty. There are loads of woodland walks where you can take the kids for a scuff through the leaves. The pubs light their open fires and serve fresh wholesome dishes with local real ales.
But if you still need reasons to visit Cornwall in Autumn, we’ve got a full list to inspire you. Feel free to print this out and read it to the family when you reveal their surprise break…
5 reasons to visit Cornwall in Autumn
5. The beaches
Cornwall has almost 300 miles of coastline, lined with beautiful beaches. From the white sands and dramatic surf of the north coast to the pebbled shores of the south coast, you’ll have no trouble finding a peaceful stretch of sand to walk the dog, and build sandcastles with the kids.
4. The pubs
You’ll struggle to find better views than those from the windows of Cornwall’s pubs. Many of the pubs serve award-winning locally sourced food, with Cornish real ales, ciders and wines. You might also want to leave room for a dessert, served with Cornish clotted cream of course.
3. The food festivals
Love food? Then you have to come along to one of the county’s food festivals in September and October. There’s the Great Cornish Food Festival in September, the Oyster Festival, the Falmouth Beer Festival and Newquay Fish Festival. All include cooking demos, fresh local produce, as well as live music, craft stalls and tasty treats.
2. The attractions
Ride the roller coasters, feed the animals, squeal as the waters splash you on the log flume, race through the air on a zip wire and touch the clouds on the sky-high rides. There are loads of theme parks and attractions to choose from, including Flambards, Camel Creek, Newquay Zoo, Paradise Park and Adrenaline Quarry.
1. The quirky seaside towns
You don’t have to spend money to enjoy your holiday in Cornwall – keep your cash in your pocket and instead just wander along the beaches in Newquay, explore the rockpools, scuff through the Autumn leaves in the miles of woodland and go window-shopping around the independent shops in the coastal towns.
