The most famous open-air theatre in Britain
ne of South Cornwall’s most idyllic boutique hideaway, The Lugger, invites couples in search of romance to enjoy a weekend escape, which includes an evening at the famous ‘theatre under the stars’ – The Minack – the most atmospheric theatre setting in the country tucked right into the rocks on the Cornish coast with the sea the backdrop for every production.
Whilst soaking up the 17th century Cornish charm and culture of The Lugger, once a smugglers’ inn tucked away on the water’s edge in tiny Portloe, make the magical trip to The Minack where classic love stories will unfold under a twinkling night sky. Snuggle together under the warmth of a blanket, whilst sipping on champagne and tucking into a fabulous Lugger prepared lobster picnic.
If music is more your thing, come at the end of the season in late September when the Minack Proms are staged. Once back at the hotel, you can enjoy a nightcap on the terrace watching the boats bob in the tiny bay and consider what kind of treatment you’re going to have tomorrow in the Lugger Spa. Bliss!
