Love is in the (sea) air

Cosy-up to the roaring sound of the Atlantic Ocean with these romantic beach-side boltholes for two.

With long, sandy beaches, rugged coastline and charming fishing villages, Cornwall is the perfect destination for a couple’s escape. Summer brings lazy days, sunset beach strolls and alfresco dining under star-filled skies. Whereas, winter grey clouds mean wrapping up warm, curling-up and watching the storms in front of a roaring log fire.
