Golden light, a blaze of colour in the trees and piles of crunchy leaves on the ground to kick through. Wrap up against autumnal drafts, pull on those wellies and let's go for a walk…
Just a short stroll from Gwel An Mor you’ll enter the magical woodland of Tehidy. 250 acres of ancient trees and peaceful lakes to explore and you might get to meet the famously tame Tehidy squirrels!
Choose from a gentle amble around the gardens taking in the sweeping views across the parkland and out to sea, or set off around the woodland path for riverside stomps through a tunnel of autumnal colour.
If it's stormy out then Sennen is one of the best places to watch the drama unfold. Follow the cliffpath up towards the old Coastguard lookout hut and round towards Land's End to see the biggest waves swooshing up the cliffs.
A different take on autumn, but there is a hidden secret in Mounts Bay – an ancient petrified forest lurking in the sea bed! Thousands of years ago a forest covered the area and these petrified stumps can still be seen on low tides around Wherry Town (just before Newlyn) and Chyandor, just to the east of Penzance.
Happy trails galore at Loe Pool near Helston with miles of footpaths through the woodland and around Cornwall’s largest natural lake. If you go quietly you might even spot an elusive otter as they have been making their home here recently. A fantastic National Trust café at Penrose will warm you up with hot chocolates and homemade cakes!
