Autumn in Cornwall

Well, October half term passed in a blur. We are enjoying Autumn in Cornwall this year. I hope our guests had a good week despite the winds that Storm Brian brought at the start of the break. The weather did get better though! It is hard to believe that it was Halloween this week and we are now into November.

We have had a beautiful, settled, sunny week. In fact the weather is better than it was in July. I’ve had some lovely walks on the beach with the dog and the views from the coastal path are stunning. At low tide you can walk along the beach from Crooklets to Northcott or Sandymouth. It is a long stretch of sandy beach and the cliffs and rock formations are also fun to explore.

The best thing about the clocks going back is the winter sunsets. We have a great view from here and you can see the sun disappearing into the sea. Even better on the beach if you wrap up.
