Kynance Cove in Cornwall
Kynance Cove

A smuggler’s haunt now perfect for lovebirds, Kynance is the perfect place to stroll hand in hand across glorious sands as you take in the wonders of the Cornish coast. 

With impeccable views, this beach is the out-of-season spot for all romantics. Enjoy a secluded picnic wrapped up warm, or let out your inner children as you splash in the surf. No matter your Valentine’s plans, this is one of the best walks in Cornwall to add to your agenda.

St Nectan's Glen

Hidden away in the mossy glades of North Cornwall, St Nectan’s Glen is an unmissable hike for two. Imagine you are in your own fairytale as you wander your way through the glen to find the cascading waterfalls that bring into question the existence of piskies, fairies and other mythical creatures.

Feel the magic of nature together, enjoying each other’s company in your own little world.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan

Get lost in the flora and fauna and hide amongst the trees for a moment alone.

Once lost itself to the passages of time, the Lost Gardens have been refound, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t the most beautiful place to get lost in together.

Cross the rope bridge, explore the Pleasure Grounds or take a moment on a secluded bench for romantic seclusion in the great outdoors.

Gyllyngvase Beach

Walk from beach to beach and take in the white sands of Gyllyngvase as you watch the waves lapping against the shore. Explore hidden rockpools in search of precious treasure, or sit together and watch the sun as it makes its move across the sky, basking in its golden glow for a few moments of peace and serenity.

Looking to get out of your comfort zone? A refreshing dip in the cool, clear waters is the perfect bonding exercise. But remember to wrap up warm afterwards!

Frenchman's Creek on the Helford River in Cornwall

Take a leaf out of Daphe Du Maurier’s romantic novel and explore the beauty of the Helford River together. Walk from the village of Helford, just off of the Helford River, and begin a gentle stroll through the woodlands to this secluded area surrounded by wildlife. 

Continue your walk to the villages of Helford or Gweek to enjoy more of the peace and nature this path along the Helford River brings.

St Michaels Mount

Go on a hunt for the legendary Giant’s Heart at St Michael’s Mount. Walk along the causeway at low tide before weaving your way up the Pilgrim’s Path on your search for that unique, heart-shaped stone. 

Once you have found the heart, if you listen very closely, can you still hear it beating?

All of these romantic walks are the perfect way to spend time together, exploring the stunning Cornish coast and countryside, and enjoying that quality time that sometimes gets missed.

Extend your romantic walk into a romantic break with a cosy night for two in one of our luxury rooms. Add a delicious dining experience or sumptuous spa day to your plans and make the most of the month of love.
