Four reasons to visit Cornwall in September

September 07th, 2016

Cornwall cottage breaks, UK, can’t be missed and we have already given you the low-down on what’s happening in September but we think there needs to be extra incentive to book a last minute luxury cottage break in Cornwall. Take a look below at why September is a great time of year for older families and couples to visit.


As the school holidays are over and the kids are heading back to school, visitors have the chance to explore a calmer Cornwall and visit the popular tourist spots when there are less people around. Beaches are also a lot less busy in September and with the warm weather Cornwall is expecting to get, a day on the beach will be lovely!


It’s a great month for food in Cornwall, and there are lots of great food festivals and events on. This weekend, you can celebrate the iconic Cornish pasty at the Mining Festival in Redruth, or the Great Cornish Food Festival at Lemon Quay and the Newquay Fish Festival next week. Cornwall is a top foodie destination, and it is easy to get out and about trying all the delicious local produce.


From the 10th September the South East Cornwall Walking Festival takes place, giving you a chance to explore traditional Cornwall and discover more of the stunning scenery the county has to offer. Later in the month there is the Fal River Walk taking you along the banks of the beautiful River Fal estuary, and it’s in a perfect location for those staying at our dog-friendly cottages near Falmouth.

Heritage Days

Every year in September over four days, a number of cultural and historical buildings throw their doors open for Heritage Open Days. This year, from the 8th to the 11th, you can get the chance to learn more of Cornwall’s rich history and its cultural heritage at a variety of places. The places open close to our cottages include Glendurgan Gardens, Moseley Mining Museum and Kresen Kernow at Redruth.
