Why stay in Cornwall in October?

Thanks to the temperate local climate, October in Cornwall is often very mild and refreshing - sometimes even warm enough to delay putting your shorts away for a few more weeks. We think it’s one of the best times of the year to visit. Imagine all the beauty of Cornwall with less traffic on the roads, almost-deserted beaches, wonderful autumnal colours and - as it’s not as busy as other holiday times - greater choice of where to stay.

You won’t struggle for things to do in October in Cornwall. Go hiking across Bodmin Moor and take advantage of the dramatic scenery bathed in a wonderful Autumnal glow. Explore some of Cornwall’s popular heritage sites like the Cotehele Estate near St Mellion, with its beautiful house, garden and quay. Discover Cornwall’s art scene in St Ives, with many of the galleries such as the Tate St Ives open throughout the year. There is always plenty going on to entertain the children, with lots of attractions offering half term activities and spooky Halloween events.

Make October half term a memorable one with a Cornwall cottage holiday.
