Fall in love with Plymouth this Valentine’s Day

Breath-taking sea views, quaint cobbled streets and a fantastic range of eateries make Plymouth the perfect spot for a romantic Valentine’s Day getaway. Whatever kind of break you’re after, there’s a hotel to fulfil your desires.

For a historic getaway, the centrally located Duke of Cornwall Hotel boasts of offering over 150 years of luxury. Built in 1863, it’s a brilliant example of Victorian architecture and the beautiful interior has been carefully restored. The location makes it perfect if you’re tying your trip to Plymouth with a performance at Plymouth Pavilions or the Theatre Royal too.

If you choose to stay at the Duke, don’t miss Tigermilk – the 1920s speakeasy inspired cocktail bar tucked underneath the building. Marked only by a small plaque and a buzzer entry system, it’s the perfect spot for a romantic rendezvous.

For a chance to relax and unwind, you can’t do much better than a stay at Boringdon Hall Hotel, home of the Gaia Spa; despite only opening in September 2016, this haven of wellbeing has earnt a series of impressive accolades, including Condé Nast Johansen Best Destination Spa in the UK & Ireland 2018.

Book a treatment at the spa, enjoy the swimming pool and steam rooms and then dine in style, choosing from the hotel’s 3 AA Rosette awarded menu.

For modern luxury, book a room at the newly renovated Crowne Plaza in the heart of Plymouth. At the top, you’ll find the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill, with panoramic views over Plymouth Sound. Enjoy a cocktail in the bar whilst admiring the view for a romantic evening.

On the edge of Plymouth lies the wild, rugged landscape of Dartmoor. If you have a thirst for adventure and enjoy hiking in the great outdoors, choose a break at the Moorland Garden Hotel. You won’t believe you’re only 20 minutes from Plymouth city centre and all its attractions when you’re staying at this four-star countryside hotel nestled on the moors.

Wrap up warm and head out for a walk – keeping an eye out for Dartmoor ponies – and then snuggle up in front of the fire with a well-deserved glass of wine on your return.

Dating back to the 1500s, Langdon Court Hotel offers an historic and luxurious break away. On the outskirts of Plymouth and walking distance from the beach at Wembury, this four star hotel will make you feel a million miles away from the outside world, so you can relax and treasure your time together. Over Valentine’s weekend, they’ll be providing a five-course tasting menu, so make sure you book in for a meal to remember.

Or if you want to feel like you’re staying in a home away from home, Strathmore House Apartments offer a self-catering option. Their stylish apartments are just a stone’s throw from Plymouth Hoe and a short walk to some of the city’s best restaurants, including Kuku Sushi Bar, The Harbour Seafood Restaurant and the Tanner brothers’ Plymouth offering, Barbican Kitchen.

With a wonderful selection of stand-out accommodation to choose from, we hope you’re feeling inspired to whisk your partner away for an extra special stay.

And there’s plenty to enjoy in Plymouth while you’re here. Create your own gin at Plymouth Gin’s Black Friars Distillery, climb the 93 steps to the top of Smeaton’s Tower for incredible views, indulge in some retail therapy in the city centre, or simply wander the cobbled streets of the Barbican, exploring the rich maritime history. You’ll soon be falling head over heels for Britain’s Ocean City!
