Fancy a short break in Cornwall in September?
If your summer holiday already seems like a distant memory, here are five reasons why a long weekend in Cornwall could be just the ticket.
Come on in, the water’s lovely…
Late summer is the perfect time to visit Cornwall, particularly if you’ve got a baby or toddler. While it’s usually a little cooler than at the height of summer, you can still enjoy long, sunny days. The water’s also warmer than it is at any other time of year. Anyone for a dip?
Far from the madding crowd
Once the schools are back and the summer crowds have gone, things move at a more leisurely pace in Cornwall in September. Forget about getting stuck in traffic jams or finding a parking spot and simply r-e-l-a-x.
If music be the food of love…
Cornwall’s burgeoning festival scene has gone from strength to strength over the last few years. There’s a whole host of events happening throughout Cornwall in September, including the ever-popular Looe Music Festival (23-25 September 2016) which features big names such as Wilko Johnston, Bryan Ferry, Fun Lovin’ Criminals and Seth Lakeman and many more…
Little Orchard Cider and Music Festival is a laid-back affair at Healey’s Cider Farm (9-11 September 2016). There’s a great line up this year including local bands and up-and-coming artists alongside headliners Reef and Land of the Giants.

Food, glorious food
Tempt your taste buds in Truro at Great Cornish Food Festival (23-25 September). This three-day gastronomic extravaganza celebrates the best of Cornish food and drink.
Just down the road from Bosinver, the Eden Project’s Festival of Food (9-11 September) features demos from top chefs, wine tasting and a chance to sample delights from some of the best local and regional producers.
And if seafood’s more your thing, don’t miss Newquay Fish Festival (16-18 September).
Walk this way
There’s nothing like fresh sea air, a gentle breeze and the feeling of the sun on your back as you walk the coast path. If you’d like to join a guided walk, take a look at the South East Cornwall Walking Festival (10-16 September 2016).
Or how about joining the Fal River Walk on 25 September? This charity walk (organised annually by the Rotary Club) includes specially organised ferries and a cream tea at the end. The full walk is 15 miles, but there’s also a shorter six-mile version. It’s a great way to explore this beautiful area of Cornwall, meet other walkers and raise money for a good cause all at the same time.
