AUTUMN TIME STAYS
September, October & November
It’s not unusual to experience an Indian Summer in Cornwall, the sea has had all summer to warm up and the season usually extends way past the August Bank Holiday weekend. Many of the activities both out on the water and on land are still very much possible, and there are still many events taking place across the county. Once the autumn does set in, the county takes on a golden glow, the beaches are empty and the trees, beaches and water are beautifully vibrant.

A PERFECT AUTUMNAL DAY
Staying in Cornwall gives you access to one of our great assets, the South West Coast Path. You are never very far from it, especially when staying at The Rosevine, it is literally at the end of the lane. There are many different walks for varying abilities in the local area, and are a fabulous way of taking in the local attractions, scenery, plant life and sea life.
Pack a picnic, which you can book in advance with our reception team, don walking shoes and head out to explore. What’s more, many of the beaches accessed via the coastal paths are dog friendly, our closest beach, Porthcurnick is open to dogs all year round.
A popular all day circular walk from our doorstep:
Take the path alongside Porthcurnick Beach heading towards the pretty fishing village of Portscatho and then follow taking in sites such as the St Anthony Lighthouse, spectacular views of Falmouth, Pendennis Castle and its world famous harbour, St Mawes Castle, down to Place House, a replica French Chateau, and enjoy amazing clifftop views and unspoilt beaches. Pick up a map from the House – we have plenty!
Alternatively, the county is much quieter at this time of year and so heading to our top attractions in autumn means less crowds. The Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are about a half an hour drive from The Rosevine, with their world famous flora and fauna. St Ives is a little further west but is well worth it. Famed for its art, visit galleries and museums galore! Notably, the Tate St Ives spectacularly situated overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden.
