Here's why you should visit Cornwall in January
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
Our boutique hotel, Cornwall, is the perfect place for it too. You can enjoy a relaxing stay in our luxury rooms with stunning views of the River Fowey, scrumptious dinners made of local Cornish produce you don't have to prepare yourself and a delicious glass of wine to help you leave the stress of the holidays behind.
Cornwall in January is a magical time too, as the moors sparkle with frost, the coastline is bathed in a winter sun that illuminates the yellow gorse flowers and you will feel as if you have the whole county to yourself.
January is a great time to:
Wrap up and brave the outside with a walk along the beach, and not meet another soul but the sun and sky.
Take a ferry ride across river estuaries to get a better view of the winter landscapes on the shores and see the mist roll down from the cliffs.
Warm up with a mug of hot chocolate in a cosy café or have a pint in a friendly pub by a roaring fire and fill yourself up with some hearty Cornish grub.
Get a taste of Cornwall's rich history with a visit to a medieval castle or Victorian mansion and discover the amazing heritage that makes Cornwall the place it is today.
Explore the cobbled narrow streets of the coastal fishing villages and do a spot of shopping. Cornwall is great for picking up a bargain in a quaint little boutique shop, especially after the Christmas rush has gone.
Discover Cornwall's artistic side if the weather gets a bit too uninviting. Cornwall has lots of fantastic galleries and artistic centres including painting, pottery and sculpture.
Wander the country trails found across Cornwall taking in the breath-taking scenery and seeing history, nature and wildlife all in one day.
Get up early and watch the sunrise at 8 am from the beach, just remember to take your camera so you can capture the perfect shot and have a wonderful memory of your peaceful getaway.
