Autumn in Cornwall.

When you think of Cornwall, fish and chips at the seaside, stunning sunsets and surfing may all spring to mind, all of which are best enjoyed in summer, right? Wrong!

This and so much more can be enjoyed in the autumn months, and with the bonus of no summer crowds! 

Here's what you can enjoy about autumn in Cornwall…

Heligan Night Garden 300x225

Visit popular attractions without the crowds

Autumn is truly the best time to enjoy some of the county’s best attractions and get a real taste for life in the local area. 


Marvel at Heligan’s captivating gardens, rediscovered and restored from the ruins of WW1 - and even more magical in the golden autumnal glow.

Autumn at Heligan includes harvest celebrations, Halloween activities and enchanting lantern-lit night walks in the gardens.

Pssst… Enjoy discounted entry to the Lost Gardens of Heligan when you book a Hoburne holiday. Details here

Bodmin Jail 300x225

As if a visit to Bodmin Jail wasn’t spine-tingling enough, autumn sees the return of themed paranormal walks including ghost hunts and Victorian séance evenings. Do you dare join?

If the paranormal tours don’t tantalise your tastebuds, why not take a step back in time and discover the jail’s colourful inmates and executions? 


From October 15th, the ice rink returns to Eden with family, parent and toddler and general skate sessions available. November also welcomes Cornwall’s biggest Christmas fair to Eden, which is the ideal place to get into the festive spirit and find one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts. 

Polzeath Autumn 300x225

Paws back to the beach!

The end of September sees the lifting of restrictions for dogs on the beach, so if you’re hoping to visit Cornwall with your four-legged friend, then autumn is the ideal time to visit and still make the most of some of the county’s most stunning locations.

Our top dog-friendly beaches include:


A stone’s throw from Padstow,the soft sandy beach of Constantine Bay is sufficiently sheltered for the most beautiful autumn and winter walks.


A popular patch that’s packed in the summer months, but a natural beauty all year round. Visit when the tide is out and you’ll be able to enjoy a leisurely two-mile walk to the mouth of the Camel estuary, with plenty of village shops, cafes and pubs to visit along the way. 

Cosy coastal & country pubs

Whether you’re on the homeward stretch of a bracing autumn walk, or are taking it easy on a Sunday drive, whittling away a few hours in a cosy corner of a country pub is the perfect way to spend an autumn afternoon, especially in Cornwall.
