Ideas for a romantic Falmouth Minimoon

Several brides tying the knot at the Greenbank have a romantic minimoon in Cornwall at the same time! We even have couples tie the knot elsewhere in the South West and even in London who escape to Falmouth for a minimoon break so we’ve put together a list of romantic suggestions for things to do in and around Falmouth when staying at the Greenbank Hotel!

Private boat trip

When staying on the water, where better to be than on the water! You can barely get closer than our luxury hotel but to touch the sea, why not hire a private boat and have a trip around the coast and coves that make Falmouth so special. Hire a boat from £95 for half a day, stopping off at the stunning Pandora Inn for lunch or perhaps choose the option with the Cornish hamper!

Pendennis castle

For a slice of romance and history, we recommend a visit to Pendennis Castle. Built by Henry VIII circa 1540, this romantic castle is truly magical. Climb to the roof and look at the panoramic views across Falmouth, imagine you are 16th century royalty looking down from high up on your turret!

Champagne afternoon tea

For days when you don’t want to stray too far, enjoy an indulgent champagne afternoon tea on the Greenbank terrace, watching the sun dance on the water and the boats bobbing on the waves.

Picnic and day of exploring

Why not let our chefs prepare you a picnic hamper to take on a coastal walk? Explore the local beaches and Cornish coastal path or visit one of the nearby gardens such as Trebah with its variety of trees, flora and fauna and even a private beach!

Romantic candlelit dinner

Nothing beats a romantic candlelit table for two in our Water’s Edge restaurant. Dine on fresh fish caught on our doorstep, succulent steak and fresh local seasonal produce all served up by our expert kitchen team. Pair with a nice crisp glass of something chilled and make sure you get a good table… no need to worry about that, we’ve updated our restaurant so whether you prefer a seat by the window or a cosy booth for two, you’ll be able to dine in style with a side order of superb sea views!

Breakfast in bed

Some days you don’t want to get out of bed and on honeymoon, you shouldn’t have to! Relax and enjoy a day of nothing, starting with breakfast delivered direct to your door!

Go horse riding

For a more active day, why not try your hand at horse riding? Enjoy a couples lesson at nearby Bosvathick and, for those a little more experience, why not go out on a hack to explore the countryside on horseback? How very Poldark….


Whatever you decide, Falmouth is truly romantic at all times of year. Make sure you check out our Romance Break and don’t forget to let us know if it’s a honeymoon, we’ll be sure to make you feel extra special!
