Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, seeking a romantic getaway, or just in need of a serene retreat from wedding planning, Cornwall’s majestic coastline, charming villages, and vibrant food scene offer the perfect escape. A mini-break guide from a wedding florist working in Cornwall. I, Antonia, Operations Director at Fleur Provocateur, have a special affinity for this stunning region, having called it my home once. Allow me to guide you through a few must-visit spots that promise to make your mini-break unforgettable.

En Route at Duchy of Cornwall Nurseries

Take a detour to revel in the beauty and serenity of the Duchy of Cornwall nurseries. Offering stunning flora and quaint garden accessories, it’s an ideal stop to stretch your legs surrounded by nature’s beauty and to pick up a keepsake plant to remember your trip by.

Watergate Bay – Where the Ocean Meets Gastronomy

At Watergate Bay, the Atlantic Ocean sprawls before you, offering a breath-taking view that’s best enjoyed with a meal at The Beach Hut or the exquisite dishes prepared by Emily Scott at her eponymous restaurant, Emily Scott Food. The coastal charm here is unparalleled, and the ambiance, a perfect blend of serenity and elegance, is just right for couples.

Fowey – A Port of Pure Enchantment

This thriving harbour town is more than just picturesque; it’s filled with culinary gems that I must insist you visit. Start at North Street Kitchen for a cozy atmosphere and local produce, and then try Fitzroy for an innovative menu that captures Cornwall’s essence. If Italian is your preference, Appletons is where you should head for heart-warming dishes. Don’t miss taking the Mevagissey ferry for a charming boat ride, and consider staying at the exquisite waterfront The Old Quay House Hotel.

Exploring Fowey truly reminds me of the quaintness and allure of Cornish towns. For a step into an enchanting past, wander the Lost Gardens of Heligan, once forgotten but now lovingly restored.

Penzance – A Blend of Tradition and Trend

Penzance, a gateway to West Cornwall, features a cornucopia of sites beginning with the historic Jubilee Pool, a geothermally heated seawater lido. For food, Lovetts is a must-visit for great coffee and local delicacies. Don’t overlook Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens for a unique visual treat. Nearby, the fairy-tale-like island of St Michael’s Mount springs from the sea, accessible from Marazion by foot or boat. And witness modern creativity at its finest at The Minack Theatre. Top it off with a gorgeous stay at the quirky yet chic The Artist Residence.

Off the Beaten Track – Trelowarren

Venture off the standard tourist trail and head towards Helston where lies Trelowarren, a private estate rich in history and nature. Here, you’ll find The New Yard Restaurant, where sustainability meets sublime taste—definitely a spot for couples craving a quiet corner amidst lush landscapes.
