Our Cornish Autumn Bucket List

A wide shot of a Cornwall beach on a sunny day.

Pack a picnic and take a scenic drive

For a pleasurable driving experience, take to the Cornish lanes around the beautiful Roseland peninsula. From Bosinver, head to Tregony to start the picturesque journey to discover the hamlets and villages of The Roseland as you travel through the country lanes.

Blow the cobwebs away with an energetic stomp

A 300 mile section of the south west coast path offers something for everything boasting spectacular scenery and a place to discover and learn about wildlife, history and culture. Choose from the Dramatic North Coast or the more tranquil setting of the south coast.


Indulge in a hot chocolate with a view

Poldhu beach café in Mullion can be found on the west facing sandy beach at Poldhu Cove. The owners open 365 days a year from 9:30am. They are well known for their show stopping hot chocolate. Enjoy a stroll around the cove before sitting down for an indulgent treat!

Spend the afternoon in a country pub
On a damp Autumnal day there’s nothing better than spending the afternoon in a cosy village pub. Our friends at the Polgooth are open most days and offer a varied menu using the best produce from local supplier. Settle down by the fire with a hearty meal and a glass of red – perfect!

Woodland Walks

Cardinham Woods has miles of woodland trails to explore for all ages and ability, from shorter routes to longer walks up and down the valley with incredible views along the way. The Woods Café is a great spot for a refreshment after exploring the extensive trails.


Immerse yourself in some heritage
Wheal Martyn Clay Works Museum is just a short drive from St Austell town centre. China clay mining has been part of the lives of people and economy in Mid Cornwall for over 250 years. The museum includes an interactive discovery centre, historic trails, modern working clay pit and collections of working watermills, tools, machinery, and vintage lorries.


Chase the sunset
Vibrant Fistral beach is a hive of activity all year round, both in and out of the water. Set on the North Coast of Cornwall in Newquay Sunsets at Fistral are spectacular – sip a drink in the beach bar or find a spot on the beach and sit back and enjoy the show.
