The kids are back at school. At this time of year our Newquay BnB quietens down a little and changes its personality, with fewer families and children on their holidays. They’re replaced by birdwatchers, hikers, watersports enthusiasts, couples, artists, honeymooners, hardy surfers and people who prefer their holidays calmer and more laid back than our wildly exciting, lively summers.
At the same time our lovely little town quietens down a bit as well, but as every off-season visitor already knows, there’s always plenty to do down here on the legendary Cornish coast all year round. And it’s just as beautiful in the autumn as it is in summer.
Here are some things to do in Newquay for September. If you’re looking for a friendly, welcoming B&B in Newquay, you’ve found it. We’ll give you a warm Cornish welcome, and you’ll enjoy a supremely comfortable stay with us.
