Late summer escapes in Cornwall

Conor Fletcher

Once the school holidays have passed us by and the summer sun is having one last final hurrah before Autumn sets in, St Ives still offers a peaceful and relaxing escape like no other. With the beaches that little bit more empty, the days drawing from sunny skies to balmy evenings, a late August to early September break is one to remember.

As we move from August into September the variety on offer expands exponentially, as artistic festivals emerge alongside fantastic celebrations of food and drink across the county. Here are some of our top tips to enjoy a late summer escape to Cornwall.

Cornwall is quite simply an adventure, weave your way across the country roads and take a day to discover what's out there. Whether you stay nearby or venture a little further afield there's so many ways to find yourself lost in the wonders of the Cornish coast.

Whether you're into beach days, swimming or something more then you're in the right place. While you're here why not try something a little bit different? St Ives Surf School offer surf lessons, body board hire or even SUPing to enjoy while you're here, paddle your way around the beaches of St Ives and enjoy some fantastic sights back on the town from a stand up paddle board.

Of course a stay in St Ives is nothing without a bit of rest and relaxation so make sure you take advantage of the little things and enjoy a peaceful afternoon outside at one of the many cafe's around the town. Whether it's a morning coffee on the harbour front at Yallah or a cream tea at Olive's you're sure to find something special to enjoy.

This is just a taste of what's on offer in St Ives this  later this month and into September, our luxury self catering cottages in St Ives offer space to unwind on the Cornish coast so why not take a look at our availability and find out when you can be enjoying the best that Cornwall has to offer?
