Activities To Do On A Romantic Getaway To Cornwall

Times are still strange due to Covid-19 and travelling abroad is still very much a struggle. Everyone deserves to enjoy a holiday, especially couples who have missed out on celebrating, whether that be an anniversary, a birthday, or just some well-needed couple time.

Romantic Getaways In Cornwall

Although Cornwall is a perfect destination for families, it can also be a romantic dream. Cornwall truly is one of the most romantic spots in the whole of the United Kingdom. There’s so many different activities you can do together whilst in Cornwall and here are a few of the most romantic.

Watch The Sunset

One of the most romantic things you could do together whilst on holiday is sit on the beach and watch the sunset. Cornwall is famed for its stunning coastline and sandy shores. If you were going to watch the sunset anywhere, or wish to enjoy coast walks together this is where you should do it.

One of the most stunning places to watch the sunset in west Cornwall is Porthmeor Beach, in St Ives. The atmosphere is electric but relaxed as surfers often use this beach in the evening. There truly is nowhere better to watch a sunset than with a sea view and the noise of the waves crashing, so take a blanket and cuddle up to keep warm and enjoy eachothers company.

Relaxing Couples Massage

What better way is there to relax than a massage ? Cornwall has many different luxurious massage parlours for you and your partner to visit and relieve some stress, whether that means a hot stone massage or a swedish full body. 

A spa day is the perfect activity for a couple enjoying a romantic break. It is also something you can do at any time of year due to the fact that it is an indoor activity so it is feasible rain or shine. 

Star Gazing

Although the night time scene in Cornwall is buzzing, sometimes quiet alone time is what is sought after by couples. Why not visit one of the parts of Cornwall that has been awarded the Night Sky Status. This means that there is a very little amount of light pollution in these areas that you are able to stargaze with the naked eye. 

One of these areas is the Minack Theatre. This is an open air theatre which is a perfect spot for stargazing. They also run a dark skies exhibition which highlights the beauty of the night sky. 

You can keep a lookout for shooting stars whilst listening to the calming sounds of the waves hitting the shore. It would be the perfect end for a romantic evening on a couples retreat

Enjoy The Food

Cornwall has over 40 restaurants that have been awarded a Michelin star which is one of the highest culinary awards a restaurant can receive. Why not have a romantic meal on the beachfront and enjoy some fresh seafood straight from the ocean. 

Or, if you want something more intimate, why not make your own picnic. You can walk hand in hand along the cliff tops to find the perfect picnic spot. Cornwall has so many independent businesses so you can purchase your picnic food and know that it will be locally sourced and as fresh as possible. 

Take A Vineyard Tour

For those wine lovers out there, one of Cornwall’s hidden treasures is its vineyards. Many of which offer tours along with wine tasting. Camel Valley is extremely popular with visitors to Cornwall and this activity isn’t too pricey so it is a great day time activity to enjoy with your partner. Camel Valley also has a vast range of awards for their wines, so this really will be a treat and a great experience in the Cornish sun. 


So although you may wish you were travelling abroad, Cornwall will make you think you are. The beaches, the food, the romantic spots, there really are no negatives. Take your partner and see for yourself that Cornwall really can be a romantic haven.
