Late Summer Fun in Cornwall
With the summer crowds gone and children back at school, September gives visitors a chance to explore the popular areas of Cornwall with lower crowd levels. The extended summer weather means September will be an ideal time to explore.
Late summer colours are starting to appear creating beautiful, colourful sunsets with purple heather and wild flowers adorning the coastal paths. The coastal path heading from Hayle to Godrevy is beautiful this time of year with a warm breeze and unique scenery.
South East Cornwall Walking Festival
A great way to absorb Cornwall is to walk some of it’s beautiful coastal paths. From the 8th September the South East Cornwall Walking Festival gives you the chance to experience natural Cornwall with stunning views and heritage.
Ideal for keen hikers and casual walkers, events run almost every day where hikers can absorb the local scenery including locations featured on Poldark, historic stone circles, beautiful Cornish gardens and the south West Coast Path.
