Seashells in September and October - a fantastic time of year to visit
We have a couple of rare weeks available this Autumn (22nd September and 6th October)...such a lovely time of year to visit. The summer crowds have gone home but the weather often remains warm and sunny, with that lovely gentle golden light you get in the Autumn, and the village enjoys a welcome spell of calm after the hectic peak summer months. It's so relaxing to take a stroll on the beach or coastpath, before returning to the village for a lovely meal or drink at one of it's fantastic eateries, and if the weather isn't kind you can just snuggle up on the sofa and watch the spectacular rough seas, with no pressure at all to do anything or go anywhere.
While you might be lucky and get a few beach days in, Autumn is perfect for coastal walks or for visiting the many beautiful gardens near Seashells, with the trees in full autumn splendour and a hint of woodsmoke and autumn mists in the air. Try lovely Trelissick, on the banks of the River Fal, where you can stroll through spectaclar gardens to the riverbank and catch a ferry across the river or to Truro or Falmouth if you wish. Or Glendurgan, on the banks of the Helford Estuary, with its cherry laurel maze and fun rotating rope swing. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are also wonderful to discover at this time of year and are a poignant reminder of a lost generation during WW1 when their workforce went off to war.
We would thoroughly recommend a visit at this time of year, and really hope someone takes advantage of our free weeks. Get in touch now and treat yourself to a lovely Autumn break!
