Reasons to visit Cornwall in Winter

Cornwall is not just the perfect destination for a Summer holiday. Ice skating, blustery beach walks and hot chocolates by the sea also make it a great choice for a winter break.

Just imagine a crisp, blue sky winter day, blustery beach walks and a hot chocolate with sea view. And with less people visiting Cornwall at this time of the year you will have easy access to museums, family attractions and gardens and the roads won’t be as busy, so you can make the most of your Cornwall short break exploring the county at your heart’s content.

Temperatures in Cornwall are fairly mild all year round so any clear, sunny day is ideal for a walk along the coastal path (600 miles to choose from) or a bike ride. Or if the weather is a little gloomy you can sample the local produce at one of the many country pubs or beach cafés , log fire and live music included. Have you ever tried a Cornish Stargazy Pie?

In the lead up to Christmas there are so many amazing events on offer. Visiting the ice skating rink at the Eden Project is a must and seeing the famous Mousehole Christmas lights should definitely be on your short break itinerary. Other must-sees are the City of Lights Event in November, with hundreds of beautifully made lanterns floating through the streets of Truro and the Victorian Christmas Market in Truro with 70 exhibitors in full period costumes.
