Our Top 5 Romantic Things to do in North Cornwall 2 / 9 / 2014

Camel Valley Vinyard

The children are heading back to school and it is the perfect time for a romantic getaway. At Rooke Cottages we have the most charming self-catering cottages complete with 5* comfort in truly beautiful surroundings. We may be a little biased but we think Cornwall has it all. Here are our romantic suggestions for your holiday in North Cornwall.

1) Camel Valley Wine – Cornwall is famous for its world class food and drink and there are few things more romantic than meandering through a vineyard tasting a great vintage. Camel Valley Vineyards (pictured) offer guided tours or you can simple sip – or glug – a glass of award winning wine in a truly special part of Cornwall.

2) St. Nectan’s Glen – If you want a magical destination then how about a twinkling river, woodland walk and a relaxing waterfall? The glen, near Tintagel, is marked as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and it is clear to see why. There is an admission charge for the waterfall but it is very beautiful, 60 feet of cascading water.

3) Romantic restaurants – There are just so many great quality restaurants in North Cornwall, on our doorstep there is Port Isaac, Padstow and Rock all boasting beautiful situations for a quiet meal together. In Rock we have The Dining Room restaurant where your table is yours for the night and you can sample delicious local produce presented beautifully. In Padstow you can enjoy the ambiance of Rojano’s in the square or Rick Stein’s seafood restaurant is always exciting, try the local catch of the day or something a little more exotic.

4) Take to the moors – The rugged beauty of Bodmin moor is quite special, you can retreat from the crowds and explore the wilds. Then come back to civilization with a stop at a cafe for the essential Cornish cream tea.

5) A Coastal stroll – as the light is changing and autumn approaches the coastal walks are perfect for a romantic getaway. Watching the sun set over the sea takes some beating. Locally, around our village of Chapel Amble is a nice stroll, enjoy our country pub or walk a little further through a wooded valley up stream to St Kew with a 16th Century church and another lovely pub. If you fancy something a little more challenging how about The Rumps to Pentire Head, along the Southwest Coastal path. A stunning stretch of Cornish coastline that is sure to wow.

Then, after all this fresh air we recommend snuggling up in front of the fire, the cottages at our farm are all fitted with log burners so you can warm you hands perhaps with a glass of wine, or a frothy hot chocolate.

We do hope to see you soon, you can check our availability here.
