Celebrate Valentine’s Day in Cornwall with our Top Picks

Love is in the air in Cornwall this month. Here is some inspiration to treat that special someone.

From exploring Cornwall’s stunning wintry landscape to pottery painting, roller skating and romantic meals, there are plenty of lovely ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year. Read on for our ideas!

1. Afternoon Tea at The Alverton

Monday 10th – Saturday 15th February
The Alverton Hotel, Truro

For a tea-riffic treat in Truro, head to The Alverton for the ultimate elegant afternoon tea experience. With views across the manicured Cornish gardens, graze on delightful finger sandwiches, home baked scones with lashings of Cornish clotted cream and jam, and miniature cakes perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Afternoon tea at The Alverton changes with the seasons. So in the summer, indulge in high tea on the sun-drenched terrace with refreshingly fruity flavours, and cosy up by the roaring fire in the winter months for a festive twist on this wonderfully British past-time.

The Alverton’s afternoon teas are served on Mondays to Saturdays from 12pm to 5pm and on Sundays from 2:30pm to 5pm.
