Top 5 things to do on Valentine's Day in Cornwall

14 — 15 February 2013

Here's our top 5 of things you can do around the Fal River to celebrate Valentine's Day with the one you love.

Maybe you're Casanova, maybe you're a hopeless romantic. Whoever you are, we've put together our Top 5 things to do on a Valentine's Day spent around the Fal River.

1. Take a trip on the St Mawes Ferry

Think of it like a romantic cruise. You'll sail across one of the world's most beautiful harbours before arriving in the beautiful village of St Mawes where you can explore with some great walks, grab coffee or cake or have an even more romantic bite to eat at great places like The Watch House and the Hotel Tresanton.

There are bonus points on offer for any couple who can recreate the 'King of the World' scene from the Titantic while on board. (Please check with the Skipper first)

2. Sample the food of love

It's easy to see why the Fal River is getting a reputation as a foodie destination like no other. Go out to eat on Valentine's Day at any one of these restaurants and you'll be in for a treat.

3. Walk on the Roseland

Head across the King Harry Ferry to the unspoilt beauty of the Roseland Peninsula. Wrap up warm, take a picnic and a sense of adventure - romance will be sure to follow. Have a look at our selection of walks on the Roseland.

4. Stay the night

The Fal River is home to Cornwall's highest density of award-winning accommodation and many of them have great offers on for Valentine's Day. The Greenbank Hotel, Hotel Tresanton and St Michael's Hotel & Spa are all worth a look.

5. Take a leaf out of Eden's book

The wonderful folk at the Eden Project have come up with some great ideas of different ways to mark Valentine's Day. Have a look at their blog and see if something takes your fancy. (We'll definitely be making the biscuits!)
