There’s an electricity in the air in Cornwall during Autumn: beautiful autumnal produce is gathered from the gardens, the countryside turns beautiful shades of gold and we’re blessed with spectacular early evening sunsets.

Why visit the Scarlet in Autumn?

  • Early Autumnal sunsets are simply spectacular, and there is no better place to watch the sun dip into the sea than from the steamy warmth of our clifftop hot tubs with a glass of fizz.
  • We will be serving sunset suppers in the restaurant: two or three-courses of stunning food whilst the sun sets in the background.
  • The Autumn food from our suppliers is sublime: game such as venison, partridge and rabbit, root vegetables such as celeriac, sweet parsnips and beetroot and plenty of sweet wild mushrooms. What’s more we have a very special five-course tasting menu on offer.
  • Our reed-filtered outdoor pool is still warm from the summer sunshine, so you can brave a quick dip and then warm up in our outdoor sauna and indoor steam room.
  • It’s a lovely time to curl up in one of our quiet corners: play pool in the library, enjoy a warming drink in the bar and cosy up with a book next to the fire whilst the autumn storms rage outside.
