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.
February is the best time to visit Cornwall. The beaches are quiet, the sunsets are spectacular and the wild sea is awesome to watch.
