October Half Term in Cornwall
Once you and the family are back at work and school, the summer holidays can seem like a distant memory. Why not give yourself something to look forward to with an October half term break in Cornwall?
Thanks to our temperate local climate, October in Cornwall is very often 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 an 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, many of the galleries such as the Tate St Ives are open throughout the year and make a welcoming spot to avoid possible changes in weather. There is always plenty going on to entertain the kids, with lots of attractions offering half term activities and spooky Halloween events.
