Winter in Cornwall
Here at Court Farm Holidays we are strong believers that Cornwall is just as exciting in Winter as it is during the Summer months- not only do you get the beaches and views to yourself (even if it is a little more chilly!), you also get to experience Cornwall from a different perspective.
Aside from the vastly different landscapes you can visit: the dramatic hills of Bodmin moor, charming lanes of Padstow, any of the beaches (take your pick!), there are also a lot of exciting things going on across the County that might capture your interest. So we have put together a little guide of some of the events taking place this month…
