is it too cold in november to visit cornwall? i'm planning on going with a 2 year old but if it's going to be too cold for us to enjoy the outdoors would there even be a point in going?

Well, we all live here and venture outdoors every day!

Plan some indoors activities / places to go for rainy days would be my advice for November. Just check the weather forecast before you pack. These guys are much more reliable than the Met Office:

No, it’s not too cold. Cornwall is generally the least cold part of the U.K. in winter. It is, however, very likely to be wet & windy for some of your stay. As always in Britain, dress appropriately for the weather and you will be fine.

It will be slightly milder than more northern parts of the UK, and will probably be a bit wetter. It's less crisp than you'd expect at the end of autumn.

Yesterday - rain and wind all day. Today - beautiful - that is Cornwall for you. Pack for wet weather, bring wellies, and a waterproof but still chance of sunny spells.

I mean it's not going to be warm but Cornwall is generally mild in November. It doesn't get freezing cold here often! Imo best time to visit - not too busy or manic. Just bring coats, woolies, wellies etc.

Invest in a decent pair of waterproof dungarees plus wellies plus waterproof coat plus wool hat and a pair of reins for the two year old.

Lots of layers will serve you all well!
