Enjoy a sanctuary for the senses in a staycation that combines sumptuous food and spectacular scenery with a spa that inspires serenity.
Sat atop the high cliffs at the final point of mainland Cornwall, Mullion Cove Hotel and Spa offers a sanctuary for the senses and a gateway into the hidden gem of Mullion and its surrounding areas. Having launched a brand new, fully equipped spa this summer, this off the beaten track hotel is the ideal place to warm up this winter.
Explore the Area
The weather may not be ideal for sunbathing or sea swimming, but there is something truly spectacular about walking the South West Coast Path in wild, wintry winds, with stormy seas battering the rocks below. You’ll find the hotel is right beside it, perched amongst the elements. Head west and you can take yourself to Poldhu Cove for a decadent hot chocolate at the beach’s local café, not to mention seeing the Marconi Station World Heritage Site and Carrag-Luz ‘Love Rock’ on the way. Head east and you’ll be treated to views of Mullion Island, the picturesque harbour and, if you’re an experienced hiker, you can continue on to world-famous Kynance Cove.
There’s also the village of Mullion, which is a short walk away, where you’ll find plenty of arts, craft independent shops and a few pubs to pass away the wintery afternoons over a locally brewed pint. There’s also a local chocolatier in Trenance Chocolates if you’re feeling particularly indulgent.
Making the Most of Mullion
Of course, if the weather really isn’t tempting you to step into the outdoors, you needn’t worry. The hotel’s brand-new spa is a serious highlight of this romantic getaway.
