TRURO Cornwall TR3 6LQ
With Valentine’s Day looming a new report by Hotels.com shows we’re definitely in the right place for some passion on February 14 with the Duchy being voted one of the most romantic places in the country.
According to the Destination Romance Report, London and the Lakes came top and were joined by the Lake District, Cornwall, Cotswolds, Edinburgh, Stratford-upon-Avon, York, Devon, Bristol and Cardiff.
Hull, Birmingham and, weirdly also London were voted the least romantic places with Hull taking the top spot at the other end of the scale with a fifth of Brits dubbing it the least romantic destination in 2015.
Malcolm Bell from Visit Cornwall said: “If you talk to a lot of people and travel around the country talking about Cornwall they will always tell you their memories of Cornwall – and those memories come from holidays. There is a lot of affection for Cornwall.
“Overall we create those memories because we have such a beautiful part of the world to live in and such a wonderful way of life.
“People want to come down here and experience it and we’re lucky enough to stay here – but they’ve got to go back to their other lives.
“It’s special for millions of other people as well.”
Carolina Annand, from Hotels.com which did the survey said, “It’s always great to see where we want to whisk our loved ones away to for some romance this Valentine’s Day. With numerous new cities now featuring in both our lists, it is clear that those who previously held the top spot are working hard to prove they can be romantic too.
“Last year’s number one least romantic city, Slough, has been able to avoid the top ten list altogether this year – other locations need to show that romance can be found in the most unlikely of places as well.”
So if you are looking to impress your loved one this year then why not head to The Valley, offering some wonderful romantic breaks in Cornwall.
