What to Expect on a Romantic Break in Cornwall
My wife and I have an anniversary coming up and to celebrate we have decided to spend a short holiday in Looe, Cornwall, the same place where we spent our honeymoon 22 years ago. Throughout those 22 years we have spent numerous romantic breaks in the southern English county, and still to this day it holds a real charm that we simply love. Whilst many Brits may head to the likes of Paris or Rome for their romantic break, a thought should definitely be spared for Cornwall, and all that it can offer for a romantic break. If you haven’t yet considered Cornwall for a lover’s retreat, here are just a few things which you can expect when you do.
For me a romantic break is about getting away from it all, spending uninterrupted time with your partner without the daily stresses of life. What better way to do this then than by taking lengthy walks across the gorgeous Cornish coast? There are hundreds of miles of coast for you to discover, and plenty of spots where you and your partner can sit down and relax, overlooking the waves crashing against the cliffs, simply bliss.
There is a wide range of accommodation options in Cornwall from camping to high class hotels, but the best way to enjoy a couple’s retreat is to rent a quaint cottage in a calm and tranquil spot. Cornwall has plenty of these cottages dotted throughout the county, many of which are close enough to the action, yet far enough away that you can enjoy each other’s company without any interference from the outside world.
Many people don’t realize just how many restaurants Cornwall has that feature in the Michelin guide, nor that it has 13 restaurants with Michelin stars. Furthermore, Cornwall is the home of Restaurant Nathan Outlaw, which is constantly voted in the top 10 restaurants in Britain by the Good Food guide. Beyond these headline-grabbing restaurants, you and your loved one will also be able to dine on the finest seafood and fish that you will find anywhere in the British Isles, the perfect way for you both to enjoy each other’s company.
There are few things more romantic than walking hand-in-hand with your partner, or relaxing on a picnic blanket at night, staring up at the starry sky. Many of us seldom get an opportunity to do this because of where we live, with light pollution ruining the dramatic night sky. Across most of Cornwall however this is not an issue as the dark nights reveal a plethora of star gazing opportunities across the English Channel. If you book yourself into some accommodation which is set away from the busy towns or cities, you will be able to enjoy the night sky in all of its majesty each and every night.
For a romantic break which you won’t forget, look no further than beautiful Cornwall.
