6 Simple but Strong Reasons to Love Cornwall in Autumn:

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.

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.

4. Watersports in the crisp sunshine

Many also love to visit the inner waterways, where wide rivers and estuarys accommodate tiny pleasure boats and watersports activity centres. Here you can try the exhilarating watersports on offer, including kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding and sailing.

3. Cornish fishing villages

Cornwall's many harbours keep the working fishing boats safe and protected from the storms, but they're also a vibrant hub of community, with many independent shops, 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.

2. Explore the woodland walks
