It is September and I have been wished my first ‘Happy Christmas’ by a departing guest! And so it is hard not to think about the months in front of us. I will let you into a little secret; my favourite time of year lies ahead with the crisp autumnal days, quieter roads and beaches and the array of events to come and enjoy. It really is worth considering a visit to Cornwall over the colder months; it is such a special time and we have some great offers on short breaks and the quieter times. Here are my top ten reasons to visit in the next couple of months:
- Grab yourself a bargain – with one of our fantastic short break offers
- Enjoy empty beaches – it is like someone has turned off the tap and the beaches are suddenly devoid of people. Just last weekend we were sledging down the sand dunes at Holywell Bay with just a handful of people to share the stunning scenery.
- Events Galore – Cornwall is essentially one big community; everyone knows everyone and we love nothing better than a good old get together. So why not make the most of what is one over the coming months from Apple Day at Trevaskis Farm to spooky events at Pendennis Castle.
- Wild Walks – what is better than a windy walk to work up an appetite followed by a good pub lunch sitting next to an open fire? One of my favourite ways to spend a day and with a great circular walk with a pub in the middle for a stop off.
- Winter wonderland ice skating – The Eden Project boasts a stunning ice skating rink and at weekends there are even special ‘Toddler Skates’ where little people can enjoy the ice in their shoes and not worry about falling over too much. A great day out.
- Winter Markets – Truro hosts their annual Victorian Market and Fowey has its yearly Christmas Market which is well worth a visit to get some unusual Cornish gifts.
- Stormy sea scapes – the winter storms here are amazing, and often go unnoticed by the rest of the country. But with strong winds come amazing seas. Why not pop over to Lewinnick Lodge at Newquay to watch the wildest of seas pounding the coast.
- Soft play on your door step – just want to spend some quality time with the children? Then come and make the most of our special soft play and games barn. With complimentary coffee, daily papers and clean, quiet soft play to enjoy you will get to have a little relaxation whilst spending time with the children.
- Meet our new lambs – yes, yes, I said no more animals, but these four curly lambs just had to come home with me. Yet to be named the new gang cannot wait to meet new guests.
- Have a magical Christmas – the most special Father Christmas experience takes place at weekends at The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Why not pop down for the weekend and let the magic begin with a visit to the big man himself.
