Autumn is upon us and pure excitement for the magical season ahead is setting in. Crisp fresh air, trees tinged with rust and gold, early evenings perfect for relaxing, comfy layers, steaming hot chocolate, open fires, boisterous seas and oh, so much more.
If you are looking forward to spending autumn in Padstow this year, get ready for an enchanting time of year. To help you on your way to autumnal bliss, we’ve put together some of the top things to do in autumn in 2020.
For a real autumnal treat, don your layers, buy some fish and chips and take them to your favourite spot. Whether it’s overlooking the harbour, nestled in a cosy corner or overlooking one of Padstow’s beautiful beaches, the fresh air will fuel your appetite and make your salt-and-vinegar-sprinkled alfresco feast even more delicious.
One of the best things about autumn is the tranquillity. All around Padstow there are stunning beaches – and you and your four-legged friend can have them all to yourselves. Especially lovely at low tide when masses of soft sand are revealed, the area’s year-round dog-friendly beaches are perfect for long walks and games of fetch away from the crowds.
Whether you are looking for a solo retreat to relax and revive, a romantic getaway to reconnect with your loved one or a get together with friends, autumn is a wonderful time for a luxury break in Padstow. Turn off your phone, close your laptop and immerse yourself in a truly unforgettable holiday.
As the days are turning cooler, there’s no better way to warm up than with a plate of hearty fodder and glass of your favourite tipple. Luckily, Padstow is blessed with some of the finest eateries and restaurants around, whether you fancy a long lunch or evening dinner. With lots of restaurants staying open and adapting to the latest restrictions and Padstow-based shops selling local goodies, you can go out or stay in your luxury cottage and tuck in.
If you like getting out and about along on the South West Coast Path, this is a great time of year to grab your binoculars and go seal watching. With mother seals giving birth to pups throughout the autumn, there are loads of places around the county where you can go to see them. Grab a blanket and fill up a flask with hot tea and visit some of our favourite places to seal watch in Cornwall this autumn.
