35 things we love about Winter in Cornwall

Back to the list

Winter is a very special time in Cornwall that many Summer visitors don't get to experience - here's why we love Cornwall in the Winter months.

Cornwall attracts around five million visitors every Summer, pouring into the county to enjoy its 300 miles of coastline, beautiful beaches, quaint villages and fascinating history. But Winter is normally a very quiet season in the UK's southernmost county, so we wanted to share some of the wonderful things we love about Cornwall in Winter.
