September 10th, 2021

Love is in the air.

With stunning countryside and the sea at your back, it’s no wonder that Cornwall is the perfect place for an intimate getaway with your partner.

Add that to a stay in one of our luxury Cornish cottages, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for love!

If you’re planning a romantic getaway in Cornwall, why not check out these romantic spots in Cornwall to make your trip magical.

St Michael’s Mount

St Michael’s Mount

If you were after a stroll through subtropical gardens or a wander along the harbour, then St Michael’s Mount would already make our list of top romantic spots. So, why not throw a little love magic into the mix?

At the highest point of the Mount’s bedrock, just to the side of the ancient church, you’ll find a magical spot for romantic wish making. It’s said that if you touch this stone and make a truly romantic wish, it will be granted, especially if it’s wished before a proposal.

We’re not saying this is the perfect place to propose, but… it couldn’t hurt, right?

Porthgwarra Cove

Once used as a private fishing cove, Porthgwarra is now a beautifully secluded and peaceful location surrounded by wildflowers and birdlife. If you visit at low tide, then you’ll find soft sand and beautiful crystal waters perfect for a dip.

So, it’s no wonder that this lovely spot was chosen for one of the most romantic moments in the BBC’s hit show, Poldark.

Whether you want to follow in the footsteps of Ross Poldark and Demelza with a walk along the cliff tops, or you just want to bask in the cove’s natural beauty, this is undoubtedly a spot to fall in love with over and over again.

Lusty Glaze Beach

If we’re being honest (and definitely not biased), we could have picked any number of beaches across Cornwall, and it could have made our list, but we thought we’d be just a little more selective.

And we’re not the only ones who think so. Lusty Glaze beach is a popular wedding venue and has seen its fair share of romance over the years!

If the glistening sand and crashing waves aren’t your idea of romance, then what about a 750ft zip wire? Because nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like hurtling through the air and looking down on the beach below.

Minack Theatre

Ask anyone what their ideal date is and you’re bound to hear a chorus of ‘dinner and a movie’. Well, why not take things to the next level with a visit to the Minack Theatre?

This open-air theatre is carved into the granite cliffs overlooking Porthcurno bay and hosts some of the best live performances around.

Grab a blanket and head down for an evening show; you’ll have the sea spread before you and the stars above. Does it really get more romantic than that?

St Nectan’s Glen

If you’re looking for a bit of magic, St Nectan’s Glen in North Cornwall is the perfect spot for any romantic getaway. With ivy-clad trees, sparkling waters and a stunning waterfall, this little hideaway is right out of a fairytale.

If you’re really lucky, you may even spot a faerie or piskies hiding out among the trees.

We hope this list helps you to make the most of your couples’ getaway in Cornwall. Why wait? Get in touch with us and book your romantic retreat today.
