Cornwall under the Stars
The night sky is always changing with the seasons and phases of the moon.
To get the most out of your stargazing experience you’re after as dark a night sky as possible before the moon is full. This means that these areas are free enough from light pollution to stargaze with the naked eye. Dark Sky Discovery Sites are only awarded to locations that are accessible and free enough from light pollution to be able to view the Milky Way. Best spots for Stargazing during your Elopement in Cornwall.
Best Places for Stargazing
Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps
The first site is Carnewas, a popular clifftop location with views stretching out across Bedruthan Steps and beyond. There is a National Trust car park and the sky can be enjoyed fully from the nearby grassy picnic area, making it super accessible and great for kids. Elopement Wedding Cornwall
St Agnes Head
On the north coast. This is one of the few places in the United Kingdom which has been deemed a Dark Sky Site. This makes it one of the finest spots in the country, where you can lie back on a blanket looking for shooting stars, with the sound of the sea below you.Elope, Elopement Wedding Cornwall
Porthcurno is a small village to the north but its lights aren’t visible from this location. As there are dark skies all around, this is a wonderful spot for observing the sky. There are viewing spots, away from the car park along the coastal path.
Here’s a handy checklist of items to take with you when you elope. Wait for a clear night, pack a blanket and a bottle of fizz, lie back and enjoy the display. Don’t forget we do full moon and under the star elopements so please get in touch for more information or check out our Cornwall Elopements Website

The Cornish Pasty
Surveys have shown that one of the top three reasons people visit Cornwall is the food. The Cornish pasty is the food most associated with Cornwall. Cornish folks joke that the pastry on a good pasty should be strong enough to withstand a drop down a mine shaft. The barley flour that was often used makes hard, heavy, dense pastry. In the tin mines of Cornwall, pasties were associated with knockers . These spirits were said to create a knocking sound that was supposed to indicate the location of rich veins of ore or to warn of an impending tunnel collapse. To encourage the good will of the knockers, miners would leave a small part of the pasty within the mine for them to eat. Sailors and fishermen would throw a crust into the water to appease the spirits of dead mariners, though fishermen believed that it was bad luck to take a pasty aboard ship. A Cornish proverb, emphasised the great variety of ingredients that were used in pasties by saying that the devil would not come into Cornwall for fear of ending up as a filling in one. Nowadays, you can still find a Pasty in many varied flavours, something to suit everyone’s taste. The world’s largest Cornish pasty was made in August 2010, measuring 4.6 metres (15 ft) and weighing 860 kilograms (1,900 lb).
