Even in winter, as the land is shrouded in mist and the babbling brooks overflow with rains, we have seen an increase in numbers of people who choose elopement in Cornwall. It remains a land where people can relax and soak up the mythology, the history, and the incredible scenery. The perfect backdrop to asking the one you love to be wed.
From the romantic Atlantic shores to the passion of the open seas in places set for storm watching, there is a timeless beauty in Cornwall that can create just the right setting for popping the question. Here, we consider the most amazing places to pop the question here in Cornwall.
Sweeping its way along the bottom curve of the country, Mount’s Bay overlooks the gem of Cornwall: St. Micheals Mount. This beach is so iconic, with its sunken walls and spectacular views: making it a memorable medium for memories made.
The Song of the Sea: Nanjizal
A stunning tall narrow archway overlooking the ocean the Song of the Sea catches waves’ sonorous assets and makes for a remarkably mesmerising location to woo any fiancée. Often deserted, this secluded beach holds different special spots to make your proposal your own and just as special as the one you love.
The Lost Gardens of Heligan
Situated a stone’s throw from our little slice of Cornish tranquillity, the Lost Gardens of Heligan are the perfect place to get down on one knee. With several different zones, from the jungle to the traditional camellias and rhododendrons, there is a part of the garden to suit all people and make your engagement special.
Because of its secret and hidden qualities, vault beach is a perfect hotspot for getting engaged. Again close by, there is a little journey involved in getting there, which gives you plenty of time to prep your surprise and pop the question! See our post on romantic ways to ask.
‘Frog Prince’ Cove
With a name just out of a fairytale, it was actually so named by a journalist from The Guardian, due in part to its proximity to Frogmore, round the corner from Fowey. Secluded, rocky and with fine sand, this tiny beach is one of many where you can find total peace and quiet nearby.
We’re not even kidding! Wandering through the grasses, marvelling at the home from home of our luxury, boutique accommodation in Cornwall, we have seen couples come for a holiday and end up using our Wed Shed to enjoy the perfect runaway wedding. Is there anything more romantic than that kind of spontaneity? We have sumptuous sheets, luxury lunches and a huge hug from our hot tub as a great place to start for starry eyed nights and days languishing in love.
