Romance in Fowey…

In my opinion, you don”t have to wait for Valentines to plan a Romantic break to Cornwall!   Just take a look at our gorgeous Wild Thyme Barn with it”s four poster bed!  Perfect any time!

If you need Champagne & flowers, petals on a pillow or a table reservation just let me know and I shall organise it for you. 

The ambience and scenery across Cornwall is dramatic, moody and beautiful all year round with Fowey having that extra special feel.  To help plan that Special break or Romantic weekend, here are a few of our favourite places that come highly recommended from us as well as past guests –  and the bonus is, all are within very easy reach of Penventinue Manor Farm!

If you are planning something very special and need help with keeping a secret, please do let me know as I would be delighted to assist you in any way that I can.

Lusty Glaze Beach, Newquay, Cornwall
A privately owned, sheltered cove that has been voted one of the top romantic beach locations in Cornwall.  The golden sandy hideaway can be accessed from the neighbouring beaches or from the clifftop path which gives stunning views.   You will have to reserve a table at the Lusty Glaze restaurant – beautiful on every level.

Strangles Beach, Crackington Haven, Cornwall
Hmmmm you might be thinking, given the name, this place could never be Romantic and we wouldn’t blame you for that,  however the location is incredible and well worth a visit.   It is an isolated, pebbly beach and can be reached by a scramble down from the cliff path – even with the walk back up, you”ll feel it”s worth it.   Apparently Thomas Hardy and his wife Emma walked this beach often when they were courting.   You would need to pack a picnic as there are no facilities but it is what makes it so special as it does not have many visitors.

Zennor, Nr St Ives, Cornwall
The village of Zennor sits on the Atlantic Coast of Cornwall.  A romantic and wild landscape, having been inhabited for at least 4000 years, was one of the last bastions of the Cornish Language.   There is so much history here with recent findings of domestic and mining tools dating back to 3000BC.    During the First World War, D.H Lawrence and his wife stayed at the Tinners Arms, where he wrote Women in Love, very much the perfect romantic background in which to do so.   …and the legend of the love for a mysterious Mermaid sent Mathew Trewella to his disappearance is heartbreakingly romantic…

The Pandora Inn, Mylor
Sat on the edge of Restronguet Creek – parts of the Inn date back to the 13th Century.  Fantastic menu, roaring log fire, flagstone floors, low-beamed ceilings and a thatched roof you will want to spend the whole day here just relaxing next to the water”s edge.

The Rashleigh Inn, Polkerris Beach
A warm welcoming, very typical cosy Cornish pub…right on the beach….and only 2 miles from us.   Great dog beach during the winter months too.  A gastro pub with separate restaurant serving very fresh fish & seafood and great wines and local ales.   Large, stunning terrace making a very romantic place to be as the sun goes down.

Bodhi”s Beach Cafe, Pentire, Newquay
Tucked into the cliffs on Fistral beach, here you will experience some of the best sunsets you are ever likely to see.  The beach is huge with gorgeous golden sand.  The Cafe is a cool, purposely-placed-sand-on-wooden-floor type of venue, serving breakfast, lunch & dinner or you can pop in for a drink; hot toddy, crisp glass of Sauvignon or a take-away hot chocolate to walk along the beach with. 

…  just a snippet for you….we wouldn’t want to give all our secrets away now would we!  

So, the next step?   Have a look at our availability and do not hesitate in contacting me to see how I can help with your break.  We look forward to seeing you soon…
