Three Reasons to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Cornwall

With its dreamy coastline, windswept countryside and bustling seaside towns, Valentine’s Day in Cornwall is the perfect place to reconnect with your significant other.

And, despite its reputation as a summer playground for beachgoers and adventurers alike, out of peak season is actually one of the best times to visit – no crowds, no queues and quiet stretches of sand all to yourselves.

But, if Valentine’s day at Lewinnick Lodge doesn’t sound dreamy enough and you still need a little convincing, here are just a few reasons why a romantic weekend in Cornwall is exactly what you’ve been looking for.

Nature at your fingertips

If you’re into long walks by the beach, exploring woodlands and discovering new wildlife, Cornwall has an abundance of opportunities to get up close with nature and away from the busyness of everyday life.

In fact, it’s a great time to spot seal pups around our shores, with breeding season from September to March each year (don’t forget to follow guidance here to avoid disturbance), as well as the chance to spot dolphins and other marine life.

But did you know Cornwall is also home to two International Dark Sky Parks? Away from the light pollution of big cities, see the stars like you’ve never seen them before. In fact, head just a couple of miles outside Newquay, and you’ll be treated to a sparkling display that, topped off with a picnic dinner, is a romantic experience like no other.

The perfect place to propose

Speaking of romantic experiences, Cornwall boasts miles of coastline and empty beaches with secret spots that offer plenty of privacy for that life-changing question to your loved one. And, with that awe-inspiring ocean back-drop, you’ll be guaranteed a truly memorable proposal for both you and your partner, no matter the weather!

If you’re not sure where to start, Newquay could be the ideal spot. Why not sneak away to Pentire Headland (just steps from our front door) to celebrate the big moment with views of Crantock Beach and a Cornish sunset at your feet?

Another special local spot includes Huer’s Hut, a 14th Century structure perched on the cliffs overlooking Newquay Bay, that once served as a lookout and is now an iconic landmark.

Our team is full of inspiration, and, when you stay with us, we can help you make your big moment as unforgettable as possible.

If you’d like to add a special local touch, check out Newquay-based South Jewellery’s engagement ring collection, or top the moment off with a bottle of Cornish fizz from Camel Valley!

Romantic days out

No matter the time of year, there are always things happening at the many attractions and landmarks around Cornwall.

From ice-skating at the Eden Project and special exhibitions at Tate St Ives, to meandering through the sub-tropical flora and fauna of Trebah Gardens, celebrate Valentine’s Day with something a little different.

Don’t forget, some sites do close over the winter months – so, check their websites for the latest updates.
