1)The beaches are quiet – and who wants beaches to themselves, right?!
2)The summer sun shines for longer in Cornwall. – Our unique position within the gulf stream often provides us with an Indian Summer while the rest of the country looks on enviously. Awful.
3) There’s nothing to do. Not. A. Dot.

4) The local areas top-quality restaurants turn their attention to warming, Autumnal produce.
Hearty dishes, seasonal veg, rich meats and sublime flavours? Not for us thanks!
5) The sun sets earlier. That means you can catch the most striking hues without having to stay up half the night. Terrible.
6) The leaves begin to turn… and who wants to visit a Cornish Garden at its most enchanting?
7)The swells come in. There’s absolutely no joy in watching some of the best surfers in the country take to the famous Cribber, no, none.
8) Indian summer views. Nah, not for us…
