Best Proposal Spots
7 April 2017
We do love a good proposal and there's nowhere better to pop the question than beautiful Cornwall.
Here are five of our favourite suggestions for places to ask that all-important question. Romance factor guaranteed!
On the Water
When we say ON the water, we mean as close to it as you can get! The four star Greenbank Hotel is a great place for surprising your partner (and based on the surroundings alone they're bound to say yes!) Four-star decadence, sea views everywhere you turn and private pontoons make this an unrivalled location. We highly recommend booking Room 101 and running a deep bubble bath overlooking the sea to celebrate après-proposal, dial down to Reception to get Champagne brought to the room!
On the Beach
Where else would you pop the question in Cornwall than by the shore? With so many beaches to choose from the world really is your oyster. One lesser-known beach that we think makes for the perfect sandy spot is Carne Beach on the Roseland. Pop the question there and make it an even more magical occasion by booking a night at leading Cornish hotel, The Nare. Enjoy fine dining, sandy strolls, sea views and relaxing in the hot tub overlooking the beach. Even celebrities have popped the question on Carne Beach so you're in good company!
On a Sea View Balcony
We are truly spoiled for choice when it comes to sea views in Cornwall. But one of our front runners has to be the Hotel Tresanton in St Mawes. Their terrace has the finest views and you can celebrate in style afterwards with a Champagne afternoon tea for two. Hey, if it's good enough for The Telegraph, The Independent and Conde Nast Johansens...
In a Cornish Castle
Well, when in Cornwall, it makes sense to propose somewhere ridiculously romantic doesn't it? Pay a visit to Pendennis Castle and get down on bended knee in the romantic circular stone lower gunroom. Or why not climb the spiral staircase to the roof and take in the panoramic views before asking the all-important question? Afterwards, stroll around Pendennis Point (enjoying a proper Cornish ice cream at the top). Why not make a weekend of it and book one of the pretty cottages in the grounds of the castle? You could even walk around the grounds at night and propose in front of a floodlit Pendennis Castle. It doesn't get more romantic than that!
On the Fal River
For the ultimate in romance, head straight to Fal River! Whether you get down on bended knee on The Enterprise or perhaps hire a private charter... We can sail around the river with Champagne on ice and even a jazz band to serenade you. Explore the hidden creeks and coves and make it truly special. For a unique way to celebrate, check out King Harry Glamping; a completely different way of asking those four words, you can explore the river yourselves with a Kayak for two!
