Perfect weather conditions through the Spring and Summer have resulted in a spectacular bloom of colour this Autumn, with golds, reds, ambers and yellows bursting into life.
Long sunny days in the Spring followed by occasional nurturing Summer showers are producing some of the most vibrant Autumn displays in years and Cornwall is one of the best places to experience the magic for yourself.
Feel the crunch of Autumn leaves beneath your feet, breathe the crisp cool air and delight in the sights, sounds and smells of a new season.
The South West coastpath opens up the county's 300 miles of coast, from the rugged north coast with its crashing waves and dramatic cliffs to the calmer south coast with its springy heather and golden beaches.
Many also love to visit the inner waterways, where wide rivers and estuarys accommodate tiny pleasure boats and watersports activity centers. Here you can try the exhilarating watersports on offer, including kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding and sailing.
Cornwall's many harbours keep the working fishing boats safe and protected from the storms, but they're also a vibrant hub of community, independent shops and memorable tea rooms and restaurants. Wander the narrow streets, dip in and out of the quirky shops before choosing one of the many eateries to indulge in a Cornish cream tea and watch the world go by.
Cornwall is home to many woodland walks, trails and forests, from the thick valleys of Cardinham Woods near Bodmin to the level trail from The Cornwall Hotel to Pentewan Village and Beach, all offering access to a whole world of nature.
And then there are the beaches - wonderfully deserted now the peak season has passed, there are hundreds of beaches huddled around Cornwall's extensive coastline. From fine white sand to tactile round pebbles and jagged rock faces, there's plenty to discover as you travel to the coast.
We love Cornwall all year round, but the landscape takes on a magical quality in Autumn. Take a look at our latest special offers for details of Autumn breaks in Cornwall and join us to make the most of the vivid colours of this very special season.
