Long, brisk walks along cliff paths, dipping your toes in the (admittedly chilly) sea, and harbourside fish-and-chip dinners – the UK coast is just perfect for honeymooners. Here’s three of our favourite hotels by the sea in the UK:
Set on the beautiful Roseland Peninsula, The Lugger boasts a gorgeous harbour-side position, surrounded by cliffs. You’re in the perfect position here from which to walk some of the fabulous Cornish Coastal Path – or, if your honeymoon needs are a little more sedate, to just soak up the views from one of the hotel’s terraces, or to wind-down in the spa – before spending your evening sampling the freshest local seafood in the restaurant.
The infinity pool above the coast here is enough to make this the perfect honeymoon spot, but add in rooms with a classic beach chic, a spa with cliff-edge treatment rooms, and being within stumbling distance of some of the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast’s loveliest beaches, and St Brides is a honeymoon treat of a hotel that’s hard to resist.
Another Cornish seaside choice, the Gurnard’s Head has an amazing setting on the Atlantic Coast between St. Ives and St. Just, and is the perfect place for a relaxed honeymoon stay. This is a proper old-fashioned Cornish pub – a great place to cosy up at the end of a day walking the coastal paths – with fabulous food served up in an unpretentious, relaxed setting.
