    Just curious, what temperature range does Cornwall have in January? Personally I'm a big fan of five dollar wool blankets that
    you find at the charity shops.

    Whilst searching for winter night time temperatures for Cornwall on the net I found this fantastic statement written by someone who has obviously never been to Falmouth

    Cornwall is known throughout England for its exceptionally mild climate and the weather in the Falmouth area is no exception.

    Visitors arriving during the summer months will be extremely unlucky if they do not experience back-to-back days of solid sunshine and beautiful blue skies.

    Even in the winter, Falmouth's weather is especially pleasant and at this time of the year, coastal trails and beach walks become particularly popular. Many people choose to visit Falmouth out of season, when the weather is still agreeable and the town is considerably quieter.

    Both spring and autumn are particularly good seasons to visit this town, although the night-time temperatures do feel somewhat cooler than the balmy summer evenings.

    I love it and don't forget its Sub Tropical in Cornwall because we have Palm Trees.

    Now if only I could find two together overlooking a beach to hang my hammock.
