The summer rush may be over but September and October are still a great time to visit. Enjoy a relaxing Autumn break in Cornwall at Porth Beach Holiday Park and avoid the crowds, the queues and traffic jams!
The county is as magical out of peak season as it is during the height of the summer. Autumn is a unique and special time to visit Cornwall. It’s a season of dramatic skies, stormy seas and red sunsets and for those who like nothing more than enjoying the great outdoors it’s arguably an even better time to visit than summer.

- Falmouth is the location for an extremely popular event from October 13-16. The Falmouth Oyster Festival is packed with cookery demonstrations by leading local chefs, oysters, seafood, wine and local ale, sea shanties, and marquees brimming with Cornish produce.
Explore the Cornish coast and countryside
Away from the local events, Cornwall in the Autumn is the perfect time to explore the county’s many beautiful destinations, without having to fight for car parking spaces or beat the queues!
Just a short drive from our holiday park is the pretty harbour town of Padstow, made famous as the home town of celebrity chef Rick Stein. Further along the north coast is Port Isaac, a beautiful seafront village that’s better known by its on-screen name of Portwenn from TV’s Doc Martin. Both are well worth a visit.
Some of our other favourites include:
- Bodmin Moor: Just a short drive away, Bodmin Moor is a walker’s paradise. Put your best foot forward and tackle the peaks of Rouhgtor and Brown Willy or discover the ancient Hurlers and Cheesewring. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covers a large expanse of North Cornwall and is well worth a visit…
- The Camel Trail, which runs between Padstow and Bodmin, is extremely popular with tourists. Visit in September and October, however, and you can beat the summer crowds and enjoy this 18-mile stretch of disused railway line which takes in beautiful countryside and estuary views.
- Head west to see the iconic landmarks of St Michael’s Mount and Land’s End. Visit in Autumn and you will avoid the queues and the crowds. Enjoy a fish and chips on the beach looking out at St Michael’s Mount… what a way to end the day!
