With February fast approaching why not book your stay at Trewince whilst you visit The Roseland (featured in Visit Cornwall’s 5 to try Romantic Spots)
Cornwall could be described as somewhat of a flirt. It captures the heart of everybody that visits and ignites a passionate love affair that lasts a lifetime. So take advantage of Cornwall’s skills for seduction and head to one of these romantic spots… Cornwall sets the scene so all you have to do is find your Valentine!
St Nectans Glen Waterfall – Tintagel
This place has all the ingredients for love and romance; ivy clad trees, a sparkling river and the pièce de résistance, a mesmerising waterfall. As you walk hand in hand through the Glen which has deservedly been bestowed Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty status, you’ll sense the waterfall before you actually see it. A feeling of calm, relaxation and togetherness washes over you and this secret hideaway is the perfect place to share whispered sweet nothings to the serenade of birdsong… just keep an eye out for fairies, piskies and spirits who could be playing gooseberry!
Admission fee applies for visiting the waterfall.
Lusty Glaze Beach – Newquay
We could have picked any one of Cornwall’s beaches and declared them a romantic spot because quite frankly anywhere with glistening sand and crashing waves has the capacity to send couples starry-eyed, but with a name like Lusty Glaze this north coast beach, which is kissing distance from Newquay, has got to be a love highlight. As a unique venue for weddings, the beautiful horseshoe shaped private cove has seen its fair share of romance and for couples that prefer to show their love in less traditional ways, the beach is also renowned for its adventure activities – surely there’s no better way to say ‘I love you’ than on the Lusty 750ft zip wire!
St Michaels Mount – Marazion
This iconic Island has provided the backdrop to countless special moments and has been named one the top places in the country to pop the question, so loved up couples looking for the ultimate romance can’t go wrong by heading to St Michael’s Mount. Cross the causeway where a legendary giant once walked, follow the footsteps of pilgrims or boat hop to an island where modern life meets layers of history. Time it right and catch the evocative castle drenched in the glow of a stunning sunset and end your heart filled experience with a glass of Cornish bubbly in one of Marazion’s many fantastic restaurants that share a picture postcard view of the magical Mount.
St Just in Roseland – Roseland Peninsula
St. Just-in-Roseland Church outside St Mawes has been described as one of the most beautiful churches in the UK and for £3 an hour you can pay for the church to be floodlight at night creating the perfect atmosphere for popping the question. With a magical ‘yes’ ringing in the air, complete the perfect proposal with a moonlit walk along the beautiful River Fal and take your pick of the Roseland’s amazing restaurants and indulgent hotels to celebrate and ‘talk weddings’ into the small hours.
The Tristan Stone and Fowey – Fowey
A stone it may be but this isn’t just any stone, it is an ancient monument marking the grave of noble Knight of the Round Table, Tristan, who inspired one of the greatest love stories of British history. When Tristan, fell in love with the beautiful Irish Princess Isolde who was the wife of his uncle, King Mark of Cornwall, it could only be ill-fated and their tragic affair has inspired poets for centuries. So for Valentine dismissive’s in need a helping hand to get into the romantic spirit, this local landmark and its magical tale is a vital pit stop en-route to an intimate meal in Fowey – guaranteed to fill heads with much needed passion!
