6 romantic places to stay in Cornwall

6 romantic places to stay in Cornwall

For a short break UK honeymoon, you can't beat the naturally gorgeous Cornwall. Cool Places have helped us pick the most romantic places to stay

1.Talland Bay Hotel, Fowey

Forget the romance-killing trappings of spa treatments, indoor pools and distracting sports facilities - here at Talland Bay Hotel  the focus is on sensual sea views, sub-tropical gardens and fine Cornish cuisine. A luxuriously natural experience you'll be talking about to your new significant other for years. There are some beautifully romantic touches too, like sleigh beds, roll top baths and a stunning sea view conservatory.

2. Cornwall Camper Company, St Austell

Not your conventional honeymoon experience, but still one to remember all the same. Instead of fussing over check-ins, room service bills and bog-standard hotel restaurants, you and your newlywed can enjoy the open road together, taking off wherever and whenever you fancy. It's one of the best ways to experience Cornwall. We love the Cornwall Camper Company because it's wonderfully retro, easy and for an extra fee they will kit your camper out to the max, with romantic hampers and other camping luxuries.

3. The Scarlet near Newquay

One thing most newlyweds on honeymoon want to hear is "adults only", so the strictly for grown-ups The Scarlet is an obvious choice to spend your first marital night together in. It's full on eco-friendly, with impressive touches like a solar heated pool, private balcony hot tub pods, your own roof top lounge and an ultra swanky restaurant, serving Cornwall's finest local cuisine.

4. Boskerris Hotel, St Ives

The Boskerris Hotel takes the term 'sea views' to a new level, with gaping turquoise Atlantic vistas, golden sand and glistening white pebbles - and you're just a five- minute romantic stroll from it all. But the real gem lies in the finesse that comes with each room on offer: huge rain showers, king sized beds and roll top baths means you'll have a tough time leaving your bedroom.

5. Hell Bay Hotel, Scilly Isles

As newlyweds, you need some peace and time alone together, if only just to get over the stress and nerves that a wedding can induce. You can't really get more remote and alone than on the wild and beautiful island of Bryher. The Hell Bay Hotel is a beautiful pocket of luxury set against some of the most wild and stunning scenery the UK has to offer. The rooms are plenty chic and modern, but overall it's the peace, quiet and epic surrounding scenery that makes this a great place to spend your honeymoon.

6. Soul Camping Padstow

Picture sharing a glass of champagne, eating fresh strawberries from a hamper underneath the stars and that's what Soul Camping brings to the table. There's no luxury here, but there is peace and quiet - and being under canvas amongst nature has a certain romantic charm you just can't buy from a hotel. Let lovely owner Louisa know it's your honeymoon, and she'll go all out. Expect rose petals scattered across your bell tent, furry rugs to roll about on, tea lights and champers.
