    It just rains down this way. The west is wet.

    Surely the east would be a bit better in term of weather?

    Seriously, this time of year (and all year long) you'll just get rain and wind.

    Although saying about the bad weather...last few days down here has been stunning, was out in the garden shooting in t-shirt, but yes, generally winter Cornish weather = mild (compared to rest of UK) + wind + rain.

    I fear he's being serious. As everyone else says there's a reason why we have the phrase 'Good old Cornish weather.'

    Unless the aim is to come to the south west and endure our weather for a week, then go home with the realisation that where he lives isn't bad at all. Proceeding with a new found love for the north, and higher satisfaction in life.




    Perhaps.

    Notice how everyone who's replied is in/from Cornwall/Devon? Perhaps their opinion is the truth? :yep:

    in all seriousness, Cornwall is obviously on the Atlantic coast, and therefore gets alot of rain (just ask any geographer), best stick to the summer if you are planning a trip.

    south east is a much better place if you like the dry (albeit colder)

    A quick search on the BBC Weather website shows that there are just a couple of degrees difference between the temperatures in Truro and Cambridge

    I really doubt the statistic you just quoted is accurate, it would make Cambridge an abnormally cold town for that region...
