We know how important uninterrupted, quality time with your loved one is. We also know how difficult this can be, with day-to-day life often getting in the way. This Valentine’s, escape from it all and make time for one another on the expansive Cornish coast. We have the key to your secluded retreat moments from the shoreline, where you can have the space you need to be together. Here’s our pick of six retreats perfect for a Valentine’s getaway.
This unique and cosy converted folly is the dream retreat for two. Hidden amongst trees and shrubbery sits an adorable courtyard, featuring a firepit for cosy evenings and an outdoor roll-top bath for romantic al-fresco bathing. Head out on long, bracing walks along the coast path towards Porthtowan and Chapel Porth, before snuggling up on the sofa back at your retreat for an evening in.
If you’re looking for something modern and sleek, this sophisticated fourth floor apartment overlooking the picturesque Gyllyngvase beach is perfect for you. Gaze out towards the bobbing boats from the water-facing windows and enjoy spectacular sea views from the wide balcony. Step out of your door and explore the buzzing town of Falmouth, or simply take the 30 second walk to the beach and relax.
Enjoy a romantic weekend in a town rich in mysticism and folklore at Harbourside Cottage in Boscastle, famous for its tales of witchcraft, fairies and piskies. Take gentle strolls through secluded woodland, towards Pentargon waterfall and St Nectan’s Glen. If you are looking for a peaceful setting with a touch of magic, then Boscastle is the place for you.
Slow mornings beckon lazy lie ins, before your morning coffee stroll. At Pilots Cottage, a cosy fisherman’s cottage, time is yours to spend however you like. Because when you’re just 60 metres from Mousehole’s harbour and sandy beach, what’s the rush? Pilots Cottage comes complete with a log burner for romantic evenings in.
Make your time together count at Samphire Cottage, a beautiful rural cottage tucked away in the Bude countryside. If you’re looking for uninterrupted time ‘away from it all’, this is the place for you. With wildflower planted gardens and views across the rolling hills to the ocean in the distance, hand-in-hand coastal walks await.
Sennen Cove is seeped in romance, with a wide, sandy beach, tiny art galleries and traditional pubs serving comforting home cooked meals and fresh fish. This cottage, set in the heart of the town, is perfectly styled to maximise comfort and cosiness whilst still having a contemporary edge. It sleeps six, meaning you can still enjoy a romantic Valentine’s getaway with the kids in tow.
