Have Fun this October in Cornwall

That quiet lull between the busy months of Summer and the rush of Christmas is the ideal time to get away to recharge your batteries.  There are loads of things to do in Cornwall in October, whether you’re a foodie, a festival goer or just love the outdoors.

October is such a fun month in Cornwall. The weather is certainly getting cooler, but we are still making the most of the crisp day-light hours before the clocks go back. The nights may be drawing in but the fun hasn’t stopped, with festivals, events and plenty of Halloween themed fun throughout half-term.  Enjoy the last of the sun before winter sets in – let’s get spooky!
