Kynance Cove

Located on the western side of the Lizard Peninsula, Kynance Cove is arguably one of the most naturally beautiful locations in the whole of the county and has been captured by photographers and artists looking to showcase this on numerous occasions. As you approach the coastline, you are greeted with an absolutely spectacular view of the sea and beyond, around the cove you can explore the rugged landscape.

Walk hand-in-hand along the rocky path before reaching the beautiful cove and azure sea where you can enjoy a romantic picnic together before setting off and exploring more of the surrounding coast path where you can be assured of more stunning scenery.

Godrevy Head

Similar to the offering at Kynance Cove, Godrevy Head offers visitors seeking romance a touch of seclusion a beautiful and craggy spot just waiting to be explored. Located close to the town of Hayle and St Ives in West Cornwall, you'll be able to follow the meandering coast path along the edge of the cliffs which offer panoramic views of the surrounding area and Godrevy lighthouse.

Alongside the natural fauna, you may also see seals basking on the beaches below at the right time of year. Godrevy Head is a great place to enjoy a picnic and create unforgettable memories together.

Tintagel Castle

Located on the North Cornwall coast, the historic and mythical village of Tintagel is a wonderful location to explore during romantic breaks in Cornwall. In the winter months, you'll be able to wander along the rugged paths and get a sense of the enchantment surrounding the place which is renowned for its connections to King Arthur and Merlin the wizard.

You'll be able to enjoy the spectacularly picturesque scenery together and don't forget to capture your day and treasure the memories.

St Michael's Mount

Marazion on the southern coast of Cornwall is another fantastic location for a holiday for two and you will find a wealth of idealistic things to do. One of the most romantic things to in Cornwall is to go and visit the splendid St Michael's Mount in Cornwall where you are sure to get lost in the splendour and beauty no matter the time of year.

At low tide, walk hand-in-hand along the causeway to the island or alternatively, at high tide, arrive at the island by boat. Once there, revel in the historic house that sits atop the hill and enjoy time together in the colourful sub-tropical gardens.
