Businesses in the region are counting the cost after another wet and miserable bank holiday weekend.
Heavy rain and strong winds put a dampener on many events that were taking place on the last public holiday of the 'summer'. Normally crowded beaches were empty and many holidaymakers left the region early. Visit Cornwall estimates that around ten million pounds could be lost from the local economy.
It was supposed to be Britain's greatest summer. The Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics were meant to boost tourism across the country. But the bad weather has caused fears that businesses here in the South West won't get the late boost they were hoping for.
Hannah Thomas reports on the summer that never sizzled.
The South West Coast Path has been crowned the country's best coastal path. It is Britain's longest coastal trail, stretching 630 miles from Minehead in Somerset, past Land's End and up towards Poole harbour in Dorset.
It takes in one National Park, five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and two World Heritage Sites. It won the title at the Coast awards in London.
