Five romantic spots for Valentine's Day in Cornwall

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, the ever-romantic Andy and Hannah Elford of Degembris Farmhouse and Cottages highlight some beautiful spots near their farm, perfect for a declaration of love.

Degembris Bear Bench 

Well, you couldn’t get much closer than our very own bear bench overlooking our stunning lake. Having already been the setting for an engagement, it’s obviously a romantic spot. The perfect place to watch the world go by with the one you love.



Trenance Gardens & Boating Lake 

Situated just on the outskirts of Newquay Town Centre you will find the picturesque gardens known as Trenance Gardens. Ideal for a romantic stroll among beautiful rose bushes and colourful flowers with a backdrop of magnificent old trees. Just next door is the impressive boating lake, maybe a little pedal boat trip for two is for you, explore the lake from the water, just don’t fall in!

Little Fistral Beach in Newquay 

Little Fistral beach is on the western side of Towan Head in Newquay. It is generally a lot quieter than neighbouring Fistral, which is one of the most popular beaches in the area. With the famous surfing reef ‘The Cribbar’ sitting just off the beach the waves can be huge and fantastic to watch from the little car park just above. It is the most beautiful spot to sit and watch the sunset. 



Bedruthan Steps, Newquay 

This is a incredible stretch of the Cornish coastline, the ideal location for idyllic coastal walks with your loved ones. The landscape is synonymous with shipwrecks and smugglers. With spectacular clifftop views looking out over Bedruthan Steps, there are a rank of colossal, pointed stacks marching out of the atlantic waves, stepping stones for the Giant Bedruthan. 

St Agnes Head & Wheal Coates 

St Agnes Head is set on the cliff tops high above the Atlantic and in the shadow of the Beacon. You can walk past the old look-out station and gaze out over the patchwork carpet of yellow gorse and purple heather, with the brilliant blue of the sea beyond. The perfect, peaceful place to spend time with that special person in your life. If it’s good enough for Ross Poldark and Demelza it’s good enough for us!
