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 – Springer Spaniel, Treburley
This pub was taken over by professional Masterchef winner Anton Piotrowski and given a make over to upgrade it from basic pub grub to fine dining. The food is unique and stunning. The menu is seasonal, but has included cocoa marinated venison, pork crackling king prawn and lamp rump with baba ganoush. Several of our guests have said it is the best pub meal they have ever had. The Masterchef (2012) winning pudding, “Trebys gone carrots”, is surprising, it is served looking like a carrot growing in a pot. I’ll leave it for you to discover the rest…
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.
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.
