Winter

November to February

The cheapest and quietest time of year to visit, with the exception of Christmas and New Year when many will flock to Cornwall.

With less visitors you can take advantage of quieter beaches, car parks and attractions. Getting around Cornwall is generally much easier and quicker.

If you like the company of your four legged friend then this is definitely the best time to visit as nearly all the beaches are open to dogs. And what can be better than a good stretch of the legs on fine golden sands…

Winter Events

It’s a romantic time of year to, like an undiscovered secret. With Valentines Day in the middle of February and short breaks widely available, cheeky weekends to Cornwall should be on couples’ agendas at this time of year.

You’ll capture wild skies, stunning backdrops and bursts of colour at sunrise and sunset. So wrap up warm and explore!
