Secret Spots for an Indian Summer

From 6 September 2013

Say it quietly…but it looks like we might get lucky with the last rays of summer lingering longer than they have done in many a year.

Cornwall is always beautiful during September. The crowds head home, the pace slows and the landscape sighs in the last summer glow.

It's the perfect time to explore some special spots and we've got a round up below of some of our favourites…

Beautiful Beaches

The Roseland Peninsula is one of Cornwall's hidden gems and is home to spectacular beaches. From the long stretch of Carne Beach underneath the imposing Nare Head to the beautiful isolation of Porthbeor, you'll find really special beaches which are perfect for a family day out.

Access the Roseland by ferry by driving across the King Harry Ferry or catching the St Mawes Ferry from Falmouth.

Terrific Trelissick

Trelissick Garden is one of the gems in the National Trust's crown and as summer seeps into autumn it's a great time to visit.

As well as the gardens themselves there are some great walks along the banks of the Fal River.

Get there from Falmouth or Truro on an Enterprise Boat and see the best of the river while you're at it!

Visit Place

The Place Ferry runs across St Mawes harbour and is the gateway to exploring the southern most tip of the stunning Roseland Peninsula.

From Place you will find great walks, dramatic coastline and lush beaches. Head down the South West Coast Path to St Anthony's Lighthouse to be rewarded with one of the best views in Cornwall.
