Peaceful, beautiful
Gylly Beach

You don't have to go far for this one. Opposite St Michaels lies the blue-flag Gylly beach and in October, you'll find it free of windbreakers, buckets and spades and dog bans lifted. Take a wander along the sand to Castle beach where you'll find rockpools galore.

At Trevaskis Farm
Pick a pumpkin

A true family favourite. Head on over to Trevaskis Farm near Hayle where you'll be greeted by pumpkins as far as the eye can see and a few farmyard animals to boot. Entrance is free, just pay for what you pick. And a little top tip from us, try one of their famous puds!
