The Ten Best Places to say 'I Love You'

Share some outdoor space with that one person you just can't live without. You don't have to be soppy about it, just tell them you love them and it makes you happy when they're there. But it would be extra nice if 'there' was one of these 'here's', as suggested by Classic staff (a surprisingly romantic bunch):

Fall in love all over again

> Looking down on the beach at Loe Bar, watching the waves from the clifftop. Maybe take a picnic. But don't go too close to the edge - Laura, Property Department

Golden Cap is the perfect place to propose... - Adam, Marketing (who proposed to Juliette there and she said 'Yes!')

> Porthminster Beach Cafe at table by window looking over beach and sea. Fall in love over an oyster. They're the best in the world - Katie, Marketing

> Sitting on top of Sharp Tor on Bodmin Moor where you can see both coasts on a clear day. Collapse exhausted into each other's arms and make up with a hug after arguing over orienteering skills.

> On ferry from St Mawes to Falmouth. There's something romantic about holding her hair back and showing her how kind and caring you are...

Mistletoe kiss

> Under the lighthouse on Cape Cornwall on a windy day and protect each other from the storm - Jacqui, Property

> Walking along the Rock side of the Camel estuary at low water. The epitome of romance, strollinghand in hand along the sands - Jacqui (again), Property

> Walk to the cliffs over Port Quin having visited St Enodoc church where John Betjeman  is buried. Poetry is romantic (graveyards not so much), so write your own love letter and let her read it when you reach the top - Jacqui, Property (many a romantic idea!)

> Lansallos Beach, near Polperro - nothing there except a small sand and shingle beach so pack a hamper, and maybe a small tent for the ultimate 'nothing but you, me and the sea' experience - the last suggestion from Jacqui, Property

> Sunset from St Agnes Beacon, Chapel Porth (that’s where I got my Mrs from!) - Joel, IT Manager

Cheers! (I love you)

So, we did say the Ten Best, but we felt we couldn't stop there. So, here's a couple more...

> Hawker's Hut as a destination shelter to huddle in.

> Valley of the Rocks to be blown away by scenery and enjoy an awe-inspiring moment.

> Wistman’s Wood for a kissing backdrop to remember.

> Draw it in the sand at Mount's Bay and take them to the top of St Micheal's Mount to see it - Pip, Property
