Autumn has definitely settled in; the air is crisp, the beaches are quiet and the sunsets are spectacular. It’s the perfect time to take a few days off and escape to the coast.
October is a relaxing time in the south west, the pace of life seems to slow down but there is still plenty to do and see. Take a long, bracing walk along the beach, cosy up by a roaring log fire and indulge in delicious food and drink.
A highlight in Cornwall’s foodie calendar, the Boscastle Food, Arts & Crafts Festival brings together top chefs and local artisan bakers in a weekend filled with live cooking demonstrations and sample tastings.
With leading local chefs demonstrating their gastronomic flair and artists showcasing their handmade crafts, the Falmouth Oyster Festival marks the start of the traditional oyster dredging season in Falmouth.
Experience a broad range of local and national ales, plus a variety of ciders and perries at the Falmouth Beer Festival. Live music, games and other entertainment features throughout the Festival.
