As I’m getting closer to the BIG MOVE over to Cornwall (woop!), I thought I’d share some of my recommendations for romantic getaways. Whether you’re planning an engagement, pre-wedding or anniversary shoot, you couldn’t ask for a prettier setting than the quintessentially British seaside town of Padstow, or the wild and rugged coastline around Newquay, with its multiple beaches, such as Watergate Bay, which is the perfect place to stay if one or both of you would like to try your hand at surfing!
Cornwall is a stunning county, set on a peninsula completely surrounded by the sea, with a dramatic coastline, stunning cliff-tops, miles of sandy beaches and picturesque fishing harbours. It offers so many things for a perfect couple’s getaway – from the art scene to the food scene, walking trails, water-sports and amazing Celtic history. It’s also easy to reach by air with its own airport and regular flights from London and other European cities (with Exeter airport only a short drive away with even more flight destinations), or by train and car.

My recommendations for romantic places to stay in the north Cornwall area (where I’ll be based) include:
Watergate Bay Hotel
Perfect for a beach holiday, especially for keen surfers – this hotel offers a little bit of everything for everyone. Be active or just chill and enjoy – everything is designed to offer you the best of Cornish hospitality.
