Cornwall’s Most Affordable Romantic Hotels
- History and literature can both be extremely romantic, so The Old Rectory, where Thomas Hardy met his wife, makes for a wonderfully romantic option. It’s also in a secluded and tranquil spot, and has just four rooms and a lovely walled veggie garden which is where much of the beautifully cooked local food served here originates. Rooms start from around £85 per night.
- Botelet is another four room property with a secluded, yet stunning, location and a very reasonable room rate. Botelet is a converted family farm with extremely comfortable and stylish interiors, which haven’t lost their old world charm. There are also cosy yurts if that sounds more romantic to you. You’re about 45minutes from Polzeath Beach.
