Now that the staycation summer of 2021 is over, there are many visitors looking to come to Cornwall as it quietens down and enjoy the out of season lifestyle that those who live in the County love.
With winter routes from Airports including Manchester, Edinburgh, Leeds-Bradford and Teesside to Newquay, now might be a great time to book your winter break.
Walking the Coast Path
If you love to walk, the South West Coast Path is one of the most stunning ways to enjoy the Cornish Coastline. There are many sections that you can plan a walk between public transport points, car parks or places to eat and drink, meaning that you can make your walk as easy or difficult as you want.
Starting with some breakfast in Perranporth, you can walk along the coast path towards St Agnes, taking in some incredible views, mining heritage and natural wonders such as the Prison cavern. A collapsed open cave that was mined, it was also rumoured to have been used as a place to keep smuggling informants who couldn’t swim out of the sea entrances, hence the name.
Four miles later you will find yourself at Trevaunance Cove, where you can stop for lunch at the Driftwood Spars Pub and Hotel, before making your way up into the village to take the bus back to Perranporth.
Beach walk, roast dinner and an open fire
One of the loveliest ways to enjoy a winter’s day in Cornwall is to simply go for a walk along the beach before finding yourself holed up in a snug pub enjoying lunch. Taking a walk along the coast path to Prussia Cove, down on the South Coast, at low tide makes for a stunning way to spend your day.
Carry on along the Coast Path and you’ll find yourself at Perranuthnoe and the Victoria Inn, reputedly one of the oldest Inns in Cornwall. An award winning dining pub, it’s well known for it’s roast dinners and if you find your lunch gives you more energy, you can carry on along the coastline for another mile to Marazion and St Michael’s Mount.
Have an evening in our Capital, Truro
With Hall for Cornwall having recently reopened after a £26m refurbishment, there are lots of options to see everything from live music to panto this winter. Whether it’s the Fishermen’s Friends musical, comedians such as Adam Kay and Jimmy Carr or the National Youth Orchestra celebrating the music of Amy Winehouse, there is something for everyone.
Dinner before at one of the many eateries in town, such as Mannings Hotel, a Georgian Townhouse just off of Lemon Quay which has a pre-theatre menu especially timed for each Hall for Cornwall performance, makes for a perfect evening.
