Sometimes the best getaways are shared with another couple; they’re not massive family holidays or cosy weekends away for two. They’re you, your significant other and two of your best friends getting away together, eating fantastic food, exploring the Cornish coast and sipping a few glasses of wine of an evening.

All you need is a couple of great friends to share your holiday with; we’ll provide the holiday accommodation. There are some basic requirements of holidaying with another couple though: separate bathrooms, double beds, large living spaces. Well, we have a couple of properties that fit all of those criteria and more. Want to be within strolling distance of some of Cornwall’s best restaurants and pubs? Fancy having your breakfast with a glistening waterside view? Looking for a holiday home that you can launch a kayak from? Then we have something for you.

Gwel-an-Heylyn sits on the banks of the Penryn river with direct access to the water and a vast balcony which catches the morning sun. The building itself marries art deco features with a thoroughly modern sensibility. It’s a high end accommodation perfect for two couples sharing. With Flushing opposite and Falmouth marina down the way you can while away the hours sipping wine and watching the busy river in action and there’s secure storage for kayaks and a small dinghy.

At the other end of Falmouth we have Coastguards, an apartment with a view second to none. Falmouth Bay stretches out before you in all its unobstructed glory, catching the sun throughout the day. There’s a comfortable sun terrace facing the sea and a quaint courtyard garden to the back. It’s a 10 minute stroll into Falmouth and just 5 minutes from the beach. You couldn’t wish for a better positioned holiday home.

So, what are the best parts about holidaying with another couple? A couple’s holiday lets you get two different experiences: a trip with your partner and a guys’ or girls’ getaway. You get the best of both worlds by having couple time with your significant other and a holiday that’s a mini girls’ getaway or a guys’ trip. Perhaps the ladies want to shop, but the men want to surf, or vice versa. You can all split up and do what you want.

Holidaying with another couple can also keep you on your toes. Cornwall may be somewhere you have been many times before, but travelling with fresh faces can bring new perspectives to an old staple. Hanging out with another couple on holiday also helps maintain a fun dynamic and an exciting holiday atmosphere, even when you’re tired.

There’s wisdom in a crowd, too. I can’t count the amount of times my partner and I have entered a world of indecision, walking around aimlessly telling each other we ‘don’t mind,’ when on holiday. Having someone else there makes you plan ahead and be more decisive. More people means more brains figuring out the map and more eyes to spot that tiny backstreet eatery or pub you’ve heard so much about.

If you’ve never holidayed with another couple before, then you don’t know what you’re missing out on. It could be the start of many more adventures to come.
