September 05th, 2016

The summer holidays are over and the kids are heading back to school, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything going on across Cornwall. If you are taking a wonderful cottage break in the Duchy, be prepared for a fun filled September!

There are loads of fantastic events happening throughout the month, many close to out luxury cottages, so take a look below at some of the fab things taking place:


September is a month of music, with loads of tribute bands heading to Cornwall as part of their tours. Bands like The Illegal Eagles, The ELO Experience, The Good Old Fashioned Lover Boys, a Tina Turner tribute, Elvis tribute act and more can be seen at places like the Hall For Cornwall.

For any festival fans, Looe Music Festival is happening from September 23 – 25 with Bryan Ferry, Wilko Johnson and Fun Lovin’ Criminals headlining.

Food and drink

A holiday in Cornwall has to involve the delicious food you can find down here, and there are plenty of foodie events to attend. From Friday, September 9 to 11, head to the Eden Project for their Festival of Food. The three days have a packed programme featuring TV experts and Bake Off to get you inspired. Also this week until the weekend is the Little Orchard Cider & Music Festival, at Healey’s Cyder Farm. Music, cider, pig racing and a silent disco along with some glorious food is on the menu.

The Great Cornish Food Festival at Lemon Quay Truro will be bringing you the best Cornish produce on Friday, September 23. Over 100 food experts will be attending and you will have no doubt why Cornwall is the UK’s no.1 foodie destination.


From Monday, September 12 to September 16, Arthur Miller’s The Crucible is playing at the stunning Minack Theatre. The timeless classic play has electric dialogue and is really brought to life at the open air theatre. Even if you aren’t seeing a production at the theatre, it is definitely worth a visit!


When you are enjoying your dog-friendly holidays in Cornwall with your four-legged friends, take them along to the Bark in the Park fundraising event at Wheal Martyn, St Austell in the afternoon. The event includes a dog show, an agility course, a BBQ, a treasure hunt and more. There are loads of great dog-friendly places around Cornwall, and with quieter beaches in September they will sure to love running about in the sea and sand!
