Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular days to get engaged so if you’re looking for a romantic location to “pop” the question look no further, here are 7 of our favourite spots.
Cornwall is, of course, a beautiful county which has so many remote spots and with 400 beaches and secluded coves, a proposal on the beach is the perfect recipe for a romantic memory to remember forever.
Under the open starry skies at night or as you catch a stunning sunset against the crashing waves, sounds perfect to us. You can even surprise your loved-one by writing “will you marry me” in the sand before getting down on one knee.
Just over an hour’s drive from both our Carnebo Holiday Barns and Tresooth Holiday Barns, you will find the small tidal island that is St Michael’s Mount.
A place when myths, legends and cobbles combine with over a thousand years of incredible history.
Take a slow stroll across the granite causeway where a mythical giant is said to have once roamed, or if the tide is in catch a boat across to explore this historic island and a medieval castle. The salty air and spectacular views alone make for an unforgettable proposal.
We also say the top of Carn Brea is a must! The views are not only stunning you have a choice of cool places of where to pop the question!
The Basset Monument, the Cup and Saucer Rock, or the 14th-century grade II listed Castle itself, which is now an atmospheric, Middle Eastern restaurant. Why not book a romantic table for two where you can celebrate as you romantically dine by candlelight as you celebrate your engagement.
Now if you wanting to get it absolutely perfect then this is on our dream list. A mesmerising sixty-foot waterfall through a hole in the rocks at St Nectan’s Glen is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Walk to the waterfall through an ancient woodland and along the banks of the River Trevillet as it sparkles and gurgles busily on its journey to the sea. The ivy clad trees will add a touch of enchantment as you ask for your partner’s hand in marriage in what we would say is a perfect fairytale setting.
Underground caverns and magical woodland walks, this former slate mine that is now Carnglaze Caverns have been hand crafted into three caverns on the southern edge of Bodmin Moor.
60m below ground you will find an underground lake with crystal clear blue/green water. If you would rather propose above ground there is an enchanted dell and woodland walk through the quarry wood with panoramic views of St Neot village.
Set in a magnificent coastal setting Cornwall’s greatest fortress Pendennis Castle offers superb views of Falmouth and Fal Estuary.
With views which stretch across to St Mawes and St Anthony Lighthouse and walks down to the rocky foreshore below, there are plenty of places within the site to plight one’s troth.
Finally one for the adrenaline junkies out there we have one-word skydiving!
Imagine the thrill of doing a tandem jump falling at speeds of around 120mph before your parachute is deployed for you to enjoy the views with the ring (safely stored of course!) in your pocket as you come into land and watch your love follow you down before presenting them with the ring of their dreams! or make a huge sign to be left at your landing point.
