Autumn in Cornwall


 As summer makes way for autumn, the county’s colours turn to mellow tones of orange and yellow, whilst people living and staying in Cornwall begin to enjoy a more sedate pace of life

September may technically signal the end of the summer but you can still expect to enjoy some sunshine and warmth before autumn's crisp chill begins to form in the air.  If you prefer fewer crowds and more space, it's the perfect time to explore.

Cornwall in winter


 Cold, crisp and magical – Cornwall offers beauty, excitement and festive fun during the winter months

Head off along the coastal footpaths to view dramatic winter waves, explore wild moorland landscapes or hunker down in a pub in front of a roaring fire.  Cornwall has so much to offer when the wind blows, the spray flies and Santa visits. For many, winter is the very best time of year.
