Top UK Honeymoon Destinations: #2 Cornwall Honeymoon

Traditionally, newly weds jetset off to sandy beaches and all-inclusive hotels. However, UK honeymoons are becoming increasingly popular with the staycation trend happening in a post-COVID world. And there are beautiful places to visit in the British Isles with romantic hotels and activities for new couples. A Cornwall honeymoon is one of the most popular UK honeymoon destinations at the moment.

A Cornwall Honeymoon

Cornwall is undoubtedly one of the nation’s best loved UK holiday destinations. With its frequent warm weather, a relaxed atmosphere and some of the best beaches in the country, it’s no surprise that newlyweds are also choosing Cornwall as a honeymoon destination.

Where To Stay In Cornwall

There’s so many amazing locations and places to stay in Cornwall, but it’s worth deciding where you want to stay based on what you’d like to do and whether you’re bringing your own car to travel around.

If you’re looking for a busier location with lots to do, then a St Ives honeymoon or a honeymoon in Penzance would be an ideal location. They are very popular tourist locations but still offer a little slice of peaceful paradise in Cornwall.

If a quieter, more secluded destination in Cornwall is something that you’re eager to explore, then it’s worth exploring places such as St Mawes in Truro or Housel Bay, as they offer a slice of luxury without having the addition of a large tourist market.
