Romantic Walk – Bossiney Haven to Rocky Valley

Take a breathtaking walk along the award winning South West Costal Path. Quiet field paths lead to a hike down an ancient valley and back along the dramatic coastline.  Not a good one for you if you suffer from vertigo, the cliffs provide lovely views. The colours of the sea, the sky and the fields are really nature at it’s best.  Rocky Valley is no disappointment either, and was cited as a place of exceptional beauty as early as 1897. The slate valley is 70 feet deep, and was carved by the Trevillet River, whose name means Dark River in Cornish. (If you want to do this walk ask at the Farmhouse and we’ll give you the details and a map!) Dogs will need leads.

Romantic Meal – BREAK BAR at the Beach House, Widemouth Bay

Boasting “Seafood, soul food, sunsets and starry skies”, this is our current favourite place to eat out. With sea views, quirky decor and a fabulous menu this place is hard to beat. It has a very relaxed beach bar vibe and is popular with locals and visitors alike. The drinks menu is as good as the food menu (we love the coastal cocktails), the tunes are great and dogs are welcome. But don’t just take our word for it?

Romantic Day Out – Tintagel

Step back in time and enjoy a day out in the historic village of Tintagel. Lose yourself in history, myths, and legends of King Arthur and his knights. Set high on the North Cornish Atlantic Coast the sea views are amazing. Explore the ruined castle, if you can handle a few (148) steps! Don’t forget to check out the roof of the Old Post Office while you’re there.

Romantic Beach – Trebarwith Strand

This beach is best for romance with its wild and rugged beauty. Do check the tide before you head out as this beach is inaccessible at high tide! At low tide however, it is hard to beat. Wide expanses of golden sand, rocky outcrops, caves and rock pools make this beach very striking indeed. You can always pop into the Port William pub on the cliff for a cheeky drink with a great view. Dog friendly.

Romantic Picnic Spot – High Cliff

On the cliffs between Boscastle and Crackington Haven at the highest point, you will find the straightforwardly named – High Cliff. Cornwall’s highest cliff is 224m above sea level. Given the size of the cliffs, as you would expect the views are massive. It feels like you can see the whole of Cornwall. It’s a beautiful spot well worth exploring. Park on the lay-by opposite the High Cliff National Trust sign, and follow the path toward the sea.
