Romantic Ways to Spend Valentines in and around Cornwall

Cornwall is a truly beautiful county providing a holiday destination for families, adrenalin junkies and foodies from across the country. It’s one of Britain’s favourite romantic holiday destinations and a perfect location for a romantic weekend away with your loved one this Valentines.

You and your loved one could wake up together on Valentine’s morning and enjoy a home-cooked breakfast in one of our beautifully appointed rooms overlooking the Tamar Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty that boasts a stunning landscape of peace and tranquillity.

Stunning Views

Put on your walking boots and head off to enjoy a romantic exploration of the Tamar Valley, that will lead you through woods to breathtaking views, or stroll along nearby coastal areas.  Polperro Harbour and Peak Rock offer amazing views and relaxing sounds of the waves.  A potential location for a romantic proposal perhaps?! Saltash Town Council has compiled some fantastic countryside walks within the local area of Ryelands.

A Cosy Pub

If spending time together with a glass of wine, a pint of real ale and a plate of delicious food is your bag, snuggling up at one of Cornwall’s cosy pubs is the perfect way to spend your February 14th.

There’s plenty of local pubs and restaurants to choose from, whether you decide to spend your Valentine’s Day in and around Saltash or by visiting one of the nearby counties.​

Extra Special Romantic Experience

Following a day of exploration, a little bit of shopping and lunch in a cosy pub, it’s time to get dressed up for a romantic evening!

The Eden Project is offering a limited number of couples the chance to enjoy an intimate dining experience in the Rainforest Biome this Valentine’s, including bubbly, canapes, a three-course meal, and entertainment. Dates include Saturday 10, Wednesday 14 and Saturday 17 February 2018.

Nearby Plymouth is only a 20-minute drive from Ryelands and the National Marine Aquarium could ensure love is in the air (or should I say love is in the water) for your Valentine’s getaway.  In 2017 the Aquarium opened its doors to couples for a special romantic meal in front of their Atlantic Ocean exhibit surrounded by sharks and rays.  Dates to ‘dine under the sea’ in 2018 are yet to be released but would be worth keeping an eye out for this unique experience! 

The Artillery Tower in Plymouth is in a 15th-century tower overlooking the sea.  This Michelin-rated restaurant focuses on sourcing the best local produce, combined with proper cooking, and a relaxed informal service. And the wood-burning stove and exposed stone walls create the perfect romantic atmosphere for your special Valentine’s.
