Escape on a romantic break to Merchants Manor Hotel

Falmouth, Cornwall

Hot tubs hidden away in a secluded garden, snooze-inducing massages, and an award-winning restaurant serving sublime locally-sourced dishes; welcome to Merchants Manor.

There are plenty of hotels suitable for a romantic break in Cornwall, but this one packages up all the elements needed for an indulgent escape for two and wraps them in elegant Edwardian surroundings.

Whilst the hotel isn't a stone's throw away from Cornwall's famous topaz waters like some competitors, a few rooms have that all-important sea view. The town centre, with its myriad of locally-run shops, cafes and restaurants and the golden sands of Gyllyngvase Beach, are also a 10-minute walk away.

In the summer months, you'll probably spend most of your time at the beach before returning for a dip in one of the outdoor hot tubs, followed by a leisurely tasting menu at Rastella. The hotel's onsite restaurant is a must, not only because of the faultless wine pairings for dishes including plump local scallops with homemade sriracha sauce, but because the staff here are simply superb.

Come winter, the indoor pool and aromatherapy steam room are the perfect tonic after windswept strolls along the South West Coastal Path. Speaking of tonic, why not pull up a plush pew in the Study Bar and enjoy a cocktail in front of the roaring fire. Whatever time of year you book a stay here, one thing's for sure, you'll find it hard to tear yourself away.
