There is little better than a long weekend away with a loved one and spending time together away from the grind of daily life. Cornwall is the perfect bolthole for a romantic break. The county is magical all year round and has so much to offer for couples, with plenty of space to find some quiet privacy away from the family holiday madness.
Here are some tips for a great romantic escape here in Cornwall.
Walk the Coast
There are over 300 miles of glorious coast path in Cornwall. The path hugs some of the most breath-taking, awe-inspiring and romantic vista anywhere on the planet, which makes it the perfect day out for couples. The coast path has many well-known walks as well as less accessible and quieter routes, many of which can easily include a romantic picnic spot or cosy country pub.
Swim in the sea
Sharing an experience is truly romantic, sharing an exciting and new experience is even more so. Be brave in 2017 and take a dip in the sea with your partner. Be it quick winters dip or summer swim make sure to bring plenty of warm clothes for post sea warming up and always swim in a safe, preferably life guarded location.
Relax and unwind
Share some quality peace and relaxation time together in Cornwall and escape the routine of the working week. Book yourselves some treatments in a spa and truly unwind together. Recharging and rejuvenating is a must and helps bring you closer together, so make sure a spa visit is near the top of your romantic break agenda.
Indulge and eat
The staple of all date nights is a meal out. Fine wine, great food and a relaxing ambience all set the tone for a perfectly romantic evening. Cornwall is perfect for those couples who love to eat out, with a reputation for incredible restaurants across the county. You'll find fine dining restaurants as well as some of the finest gastro pubs and bistros around. Each establishment will prepare amazing food from incredible, locally-sourced ingredients. If youâre staying at Gwel an Mor be sure to share some tapas in The Terrace Restaurant here at the resort, with authentic Mediterranean dishes inspired by our head chefâs Spanish heritage.
Get off the beaten track
If you want to stray away from the usual then perhaps spend some time together exploring the moors or woods, some of which offer great trails for bicycles. Tehidy Woods around the corner form us has miles of picturesque trails and walks to explore and wile away the hours. If you want something completely different then there is also a theatre company that operates in Tehidy Woods, check out Rogue Theatre and see if they have a show whilst you are here.
Batten down the hatches and indulge in a little hygge here in Cornwall. Our lodges are perfect for romantic breaks, with roaring log burners and bubbling hot tubs. Sometimes the perfect day with a loved one is at home, watching a film and drinking a bottle of wine and generally unwinding. Here at Gwel an Mor our award-winning luxury lodges really do create the most cosy atmosphere for a little down time.
