The evenings are starting to draw in, the leaves starting to turn, and down in Cornwall the scenery on the wooded creeks, including the Helford River in west Cornwall and the Fowey, become a blaze of colour. Fallen trees left to rot make stunning natural art and are enjoyed by an abundance of birdlife including the common kingfisher, whose wings are cobalt blue and breast bright orange, mimicking the autumnal colours. In contrast the Little Egrets perch in trees with their bright white feathers looking like lanterns.
Cornish food, drink and local attractions were recently the focus of celebration at a special event held at Forest Holiday’s Deerpark location, deep in the West Looe valley. Visit Cornwall’s Chief Executive Malcolm Bell joined South East Cornwall MP Sheryl Murray in praising the cabin holiday business, which Mrs Murray described the location as a “hidden jewel in the crown of South East Cornwall”.
We may be biased, but we consider Cornwall to be one of the finest parts of the UK for walking. It has great variety, from wooded creeks to rock strewn moorland, from country parks to long sandy beaches. Whatever level of walk you are looking for, from gentle stroll to a week on the coast path, you’ll find a walk for you in Cornwall.
