For lovers of the ‘golden hour’, (that time when the low slung sun slants across sea and land bathing everything in a hazy glow), you have the chance to drink it in twice a day without getting up at four in the morning, or going hungry until nine pm just to be sure seeing that magical light.
In the hours between, you can feel as though you have the place to yourself. No sad rows of closed shops and shuttered cafes remind you of the lost summer, however. These days, Cornwall stays open ‘out of season’ for residents and visitors alike. All that you will miss in autumn are the queues and the harried expressions of the staff!
