Our top things to do in Cornwall this Autumn

Autumn is fast approaching, so get ahead of your Cornwall game with our top tips on things to see and do.

Cornwall offers something for everyone no matter what time of the year. We hope this guide gives you plenty of inspiration when holidaying with us throughout the next couple of months.


Go foraging

Make the most of the late summer bounty that can be found in Cornwall's woodlands and hedgerows. From blackberries and Hawthorne berries to rosechips, hazelnuts and chestnuts.

If you're looking for a little guidance on your forage we recommend Fat Hen, a wild food and cookery school in Cornwall. We'll certainly be baking a few blackberry crumbles this September...


Take a surf lesson

If the waves are too busy for you in the height of the summer, now's the perfect time to get suited and booted and ride with the locals. Hire your wetsuit and board from a local surf school with lessons included for all abilities.

Newquay - Newquay Activity Centre.
Watergate Bay - Extreme Academy.
Mawgan Porth - King Surf.



Walk the South West Coast Path

With over 300 miles of stunning coastpath to explore this Autumn, visitors are really spoilt for choice on which direction to take. Whether its the rugged north coast and its hidden coves or the tropical south coast, you'll find something different and exciting each turn you take.

Choose the perfect path for you here.

Storm watch with a hot chocolate

There's nothing better than hunkering down and watching the perfect storm whilst sipping on a delicious hot chocolate...with extra toppings of course. Our top spot for this is The Beach Hut cafe at Watergate Bay, offering both indoor and outdoor seating.

Discover a new beach

Explore Cornwall's beaches this autumn, when crowds don't exist and each day you can sitback, relax and listen to the sights and sounds of the Atlantic ocean.


Visit one of the Great Gardens of Cornwall

Cornwall's not only known for its stunning beaches, its magical gardens are home to a wealth of exciting, rare and beautiful plants and trees just waiting to be explored. Below is a photo of the sleeping giant at the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
