January 19th, 2018
With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, many romantics are gearing up to pop the big question. As this is such a big step, you want this to be a moment to remember, so what better way than to propose in the beautiful scenic landscapes of Cornwall?! We run through some of the most perfect proposal spots in Cornwall:
Overlooking the stunning golden sand and turquoise waves of Porthcurno beach, you will have unparalleled panaromic views of the across the coast. Visit in the day for the incredible views, or sit under the stars during the evening performances for a truly romantic experience.
Why not give your partner a ring whilst stood next to this slightly bigger ring made of stone!? Men-An-Tol is a small formation of standing stones found in Cornwall on the Penwith peninsula. Some people consider it to be a great proposal spot due to the magical properties it is said to have. According to local folklore, if you can squeeze through the hole it will ensure fertility!
Set in the breath-takingly beautiful Lizard peninsula, the cove has been visited by many a famous face, and was even enjoyed by Queen Victoria. It has also featured frequently in the BBC series Poldark. You’ll soon see why it is so well liked, with the secluded beach making an idyllic spot complete with a white sandy stretch framed by the deep azure waters and stunning 200ft cliffs. After asking the big question, begin your adventure together by embarking on the two-mile walk to the equally impressive Lizard Point!
What would be better than asking your partner to marry you in an exotic rainforest, without having to jet off to the other side of the world!? The tropical biomes of the Eden Project provide the perfect proposal location, with so many hidden away private spots. Alternatively, the Mediterranean biome presents a more relaxed opportunity to get down on one knee. Either way, the excitement and exotic nature of the Eden Project will truly reflect the incredible adventure you and your loved one are about to embark on!
Lost Gardens of Heligan
Being out in nature can be one of the best ways to create the proposal of your dreams. The mystery of these gardens just exudes romance. Having been lost to brambles and ivy after the First World War, the magnificently restored area provides plenty of magical spots to pop the question; with sculptures, bamboo tunnels and gorgeous walkways aplenty!
St Mawes Castle
Cornwall has a rich history and heritage, with an abundance of castles lining its coastline. There are so many interesting sites throughout the county that would be perfect for a proposal, that it is hard to choose! One of our favourite heritage sites, however, is St Mawes Castle, boasting amazing views out over Falmouth Bay. This castle isn’t as well known as the popular tourist attraction of Pendennis Castle, meaning that it is likely to be a little quieter there! What’s more, you can even return to this spot for your wedding, as they host civil ceremonies!
