With the kids now back at school we are now starting to get that lovely autumn feeling in Cornwall.

It’s a popular time here. Apart from the odd week, we had solid bookings right up to the end of November last year and already this year September is full and a couple of October weeks have gone. So what is so special about autumn in Cornwall?


The Boscastle gig returns to harbour on an October afternoon.

Well, with the crowds long since departed you can now now experience Cornwall as the locals do – peaceful, relaxed and contented. You can park where you want, eat where you like without having to book days in advance, stroll around the towns and villages without fending people off with your elbows, and best of all, you get to see Cornwall in it’s wild and natural beauty.


Cliff-top fun for dogs!

For dog-lovers, it’s the perfect time of year! Any restrictions have been lifted from the beaches and the autumnal sniffs on the cliff-tops will be heaven for your faithful four-legged friends!


Moody autumn scenes on the coast.

Instead of swimming costumes and beach towels, pack your walking boots, fleeces and waterproofs and come and explore the coast in a way that a summer visit can’t. The autumn swells will be picking up and hammering at the cliffs, giving off an intoxicating, salty sea-scent that really makes you feel alive. The coombes and wooded valleys that lead down to the sea will be mellowing into their golden hues and we have some glorious circular walks that combine  the best of coast and countryside – including a few that you can start straight from The Beach Haven without needing your car.  And, of course, that means that you can enjoy a lunchtime drink at  those  irresistible country pubs!


Big autumn swells at Bude

If you like your surfing, again, this is a great time of year to visit.  You don’t have to fight for your wave and at some of the smaller breaks, you might even get the place to yourself, and to top it all, the fact the water is still lovely and warm!

Aidan Turner filming Poldark in Cornwall

You might bump into Aidan Turner filming Poldark in Cornwall this autumn!

Poldark filming at Botallack

The second series of the smash TV series, Poldark, is being filmed in Cornwall this autumn.

For some people, Cornwall is going to be even more popular this year as they will be filming the second series of Poldark! With Tim invited to be an official photographer, we should also be able to give you a few tip-offs as to when and where you might want to go to see some filming  – or perhaps bump into Aidan Turner – if that’s your thing!

The cosy lounge area with electric, recliner sofas.

The cosy lounge and real open fire at The Beach Haven.

At the end of the day, no matter what adventures you’ve had, at The Beach Haven, you can come back to a lovely warm home and light the real open fire. We provide you with some kindling, a scuttle of coal and a net of logs to get you going.  You can then settle down for a night of watching films or listening to music on the 42in tv with surround sound system. We have a huge and varied selection of CD and DVD’s for you to choose from.

Best of all though, during the autumn and winter, we price The Beach Haven as if it sleeps four, meaning you get all the lovely facilities of a larger property but at an extremely competitive price!

We currently have some availability for October and November (although September is fully booked) See full availability here: Online Booking

The Beach Haven is a luxury self-catering holiday cottage, sleeping up to 8 in four bedrooms, in Bude, north Cornwall.
