4 Reasons to Visit Cornwall in Winter
Winter is the BEST time of the year to visit Cornwall. Don’t believe us? Read on for four excellent reasons to holiday in Cornwall out of season.
1) Mild Winters
Even in the dead of darkest February, there’s a mildness about the Cornish climate that beckons you outdoors. Think bracing walks wrapped in Winter woolies, or watching the waves crash from a cosy beachside cafe. Put your wellies on and clear your central heating head with a romantic stroll.
2) No Summer Crowds
Chances are that whichever Cornish beach, cliff path or moor you choose to explore, you’ll have it all to yourselves in Winter. With no traffic jams, no queues and no crowds, you get to experience a quieter, calmer side of Cornwall, usually reserved for the lucky locals who live here all year round.
3) Exciting Cultural Calendar
There are lots of interesting things to do and see in Cornwall during Winter. Try A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings – a play inspired by a Gabriel Garcia Marquez short story, which creates a world of ruined beauty and magical reality. Running until the 29th January 2017, you can book tickets here (https://littleangeltheatre.com/whats-on/a-very-old-man-with-enormous-wings/)
4) Winter Menus
Food and drink in Cornwall is seriously special in Winter, with fresh-from-the harbour seafood, indulgent Cornish Cream Teas and the obligatory Cornish pasty. For a seasonal Cornish menu, try lunch at the Scarlet Restaurant, where the food and the wine is carefully tailored to the seasons (https://www.scarlethotel.co.uk/restaurant/), or dinner at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen (https://www.fifteencornwall.co.uk/menus/#dinner).
