Cornwall Autumn Breaks
Cornwall in Autumn
Autumn in Cornwall- a time for a break, exploring, or if summer lingers long, for topping up that tan for the last time before next Year. Coming back to light a log fire in your cottage after a day out, or finding a cozy inn complete with wooden beams and that same log fire in which to enjoy a meal in good company.
In the harbours many of the yachts and cruisers will be lifted out the water to their winter moorings. Estuaries such as Fowey, alive with activity in summer will drift into a slumber, that they will not awaken from until next spring. Only the sound of winter wading birds or the occasional china clay boat gliding to the jetties upstream of the town, breaking the silence. The Beech trees around many churchyards a delight to the eye.
A time for a walk during your Autumn break, taking in the golden hues of the ancient oak woods of many of the valleys. Golitha Falls in the East of the County is one such particularly nice walk. Acorns falling to the ground with a loud plop. The leaves collecting in wind blown heaps several inches thick. Or walking along near deserted beaches and or along the Cornwall Coastal Path. Pink with heather waves breaking onto the beach far below. Chapel Porth. Autumn a nice time for a short or weekend break in Cornwall.
