Festivals & Events in Cornwall
Depending on the time of year of your visit, there are festivals and events which are definitely worth a visit, in June there’s the two day Golowan Festival in Penzance; August is busy with Newquay’s Boardmasters – a local music and surfing festival, and at the end of the month there’s the Newlyn’s Fish Festival; then later in the year, in October, there’s the Falmouth Oyster Festival – a must for seafood lovers.
Here are a few of our selections a little in advance so you have a chance to make arrangements. For those that enjoy their food (who doen't) then you must go to the St Ives Feast. If it is flowers and gardening that you enjoy head to Falmouth for the Falmouth Spring Flower Festival; later that month St Endellion, Port Isaac celebrate Easter. Finally at the end of April the beautiful fishing village of Porthleven celbrates their food festival.
The beaches are empty in winter...well there are still the surfers and kite surfers that enjoy the great outdoors in all weathers. You cannot beat taking a brisk walk on an empty beach and then enjoying a hot chocolate or something stronger in a beach cafe. The Watering Hole at Perranporth has a great beach vibe and the Blue Bar at Porthtowan Beach is where all the cool surfers hang out! Both are well worth a visit.
So whatever you’re choice of holiday and if you like beaches at anytime of year then we believe you will experience it at Lanyon Manor the perfect Christmas holiday destination.
