There are any number of charming pubs with award winning reputations in Cornwall to choose from. Whether its traditonal local produce or something a bit more fancy, you don't need to wait until Valentine's Day for that romantic night out. Find a pub to visit here.
Explore scenic villages and nearby towns
Autumn is a really romantic time of year to visit Cornwall. So enjoy the atmosphere and get all loved up as you stroll around the narrow streets of a quaint town or small fishing village. Visit picturesque Porthleven and explore the harbour with its restaurants and pubs, or in South East Cornwall walk through the unpoilt village of Polperro beloved by artists over the years.
Relax at an award-winning spa
Relax and refresh from the stresses of everyday life at one of the many award-winning spas in Cornwall. Enjoy sea views from cliff top spas as you unwind and reconnect during your stay. Escape as a couple and enjoy some serious pampering along with making full use of the facilities from swimming pools to hot tubs and saunas to relaxation rooms. Discover the spas available for your break here.
Watch the sunset or stargaze in Cornwall
Nothing quite beats the romance of watching the sunset, and in Cornwall there are a number of stunning spots to see the last glimpse of the golden sky for the day as the stars begin to come up to twinkle above you. One of the best places to watch the sunset is the coastline west of St Agnes where the magnificent 360 views offers an idyllic location to enjoy the sun setting over the sea, with the ruined engine houses of Wheal Coates adding interest to your photographs. If you want to stargaze, head for Bodmin Moor, which has International Dark Sky status, meaning there is no artificial light nearby to spoil your view of the night sky. You can also watch the autumnal sun setting across the water on one of the many spectacular beaches all the way down the north Cornish coast from Bude to Sennen Cove including Watergate Bay (pictured above)and Perranporth.
Try something different
How about kayaking up Frenchman's Creek on the Helford as the leaves fall all around you? or exploring follies in Mt Edgcumbe Country Park? Take part in a photography workshop on the Lizard? ... or, why not do some aerobatics high in the sky over Bodmin Moor?
Visit Cornwall this autumn and you'll not only fall in love with our beautiful scenery but you'll fall in love with each other all over again!
