Sunshine over Portholland Beach Cornwall

Cornwall has the mildest and sunniest weather in the UK due to its southerly position and the influence of the Gulf Stream. Cornwall is also subject to sea mists and rain, sometimes in the form of ‘mizzle’ so it is always a good idea to pack a rain coat when exploring outdoors! From May to July we can expect an average of 7 hours sunshine a day.

As a result, Cornwall boasts several species of plants that grow nowhere else in the UK creating a sub tropical feel to some of its Gardens and sheltered valleys.
