The crowds might be drawn to the south-west in summer, but Cornwall still has plenty to offer visitors in the shorter autumn days. The milder climate Cornwall has provides peaceful days for walking the Cornish coast and countryside, the gardens are blooming with autumn flowers, and there are fewer people at popular attractions.

What to Do in October and November in Cornwall?
When you have booked your stay at our boutique hotel, Cornwall, you may be thinking about the things you can do when you visit.
There are plenty of events taking place in the coming months, from Truro’s Oktober Fest on the 6th and 7th October, to the Mid-Century Vintage Fair at Bedruthan Steps Hotel on the 7th and 8th October. One unmissable event is the Falmouth Oyster Festival from the 12th to the 15th of October, where you can get delicious seafood, and other local produces. There will also be cooking demonstrations, music entertainment and craft stalls. Falmouth will also be hosting a beer festival on the 19th to 21st October where there are 200 real ales, ciders and more to sample. Tickets are £10 and include a souvenir glass and tokens for two pints.
In November there will be Bonfire Night celebrations taking place, where you can enjoy spectacular firework displays and Christmas is just around the corner, so there will be festive shopping and Christmas markets including the Fowey Christmas Market which this year takes place from Friday 30th November to Sunday 2nd December.
Of course, not all the days will be clear and bright, but the autumn storms are a magnificent sight to behold. Head along the coast to watch the waves crashing on the rocks, then head back to our hotel for some delicious food and warm up by the log-burner we have lit in the colder months. We also recommend staying to watch the sunset, as the pink hues, fiery oranges and stunning violet colours you see in the sky is at its best in October and November.
Many of the attractions near our Fowey hotel are open all year round, such as the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan and Lanhydrock House and Gardens. The Lost Gardens of Heligan host their Annual Plant Sale between 29th September and 4th November, so any budding gardeners can pick up a unique plant at the end of the season, and you might be able to pick up tips from other gardeners too. Before choosing which plant you want to take home, be sure to wander the gorgeous garden to enjoy the autumn colours starting to come through.
