Escape to Kenny’s Top 5 Romantic Spots in Cornwall
When I speak to returning guests at our caravan parks in Cornwall, it’s clear that the region creates a love affair SO strong, it tempts people back year after year.
That’s easy to believe if you’ve experienced the county’s endless champagne sunsets, secret coves and intimate picnic spots.
Valentine’s Day is creeping up on us gents, so I’m using my years of experience to play cupid, and reveal the top romantic spots in Cornwall.
We’re truly spoilt for choice, but here are my top 5...
1. Kynance Cove
The Lizard Peninsula’s Kynance Cove has previously been voted the best picnic spot in the West Country.
Picnics and romance go hand in hand, particularly in a setting as magical as Kynance Cove. You can take in the white sand and turquoise sea from the rugged cliff tops, or lay out a blanket and candles on the beach.
There’s also a beautiful 2 mile walk around the coast to Lizard Point, with caves and islands just waiting to be explored along the way.
2. St Michel’s Mount
The landmark is synonymous with Cornwall and provides the perfect setting for a romantic day out.
Make your way across the cobbled causeway, where a legendary giant once walked, and you’re greeted by a fairytale castle and magical grounds.
You can also admire the Mount from a bit further out, which leads me perfectly to spot number 3...
3. Mount Haven Restaurant
Arguably there is no restaurant deck more romantic in Cornwall, than Mount Haven’s.
You and your partner can sample the fresh and stylish Cornish cuisine under candlelight, while the silhouette of St Michael’s Mount impresses beneath the sunset.
For couples that are in Penzance for Valentine’s Day, I’d suggest booking in at Mount Haven Restaurant. Their young and dynamic chef has created an irresistible menu which includes Line-caught Cornish sea-bass followed by a special ‘Desserts of the year’ sharing platter.
4. St Nectans Glen
The scene of many a marriage proposal, St Nectans Glen has all the ingredients for love and romance.
Stroll hand in hand past ivy clad trees and the River Trevillet – you’ll sense the waterfall before you even see it.
The Glen, one of many areas of outstanding natural beauty near our holiday parks in Cornwall, is a place where animals play and romance is created under the tune of bird song.
Wonder down to the Waterfall, the pièce de résistance, and experience one of Cornwall’s hidden treasures.
5. Tintagel Castle
My final romantic destination is a 30 minute journey from Widemouth Bay Caravan Park, but the dramatic location you’re treated to makes the drive well worth it.
In the beautiful village of Tintagel, set on a rugged headland is Tintagel Castle. Thought to be the home of King Arthur, the ruins are steeped in myth and mystery.
You might be wondering where the romance comes in, but your breath will soon be taken away by the panoramic views on offer.
Sit and watch with your loved one as the waves crash against the rocks – a must during your Cornwall holidays.
