Q We want to enjoy a Cornish mini-moon after our summer wedding in Truro. Where can you suggest?
A Catherine says: Why not whisk your loved one away somewhere truly special with this one-of-a-kind World War 11 must-see which has been inventively redesigned into a romantic hideaway like no other. Situated in an unrivalled location, The Gun House offers panoramic sea views with luxury interiors throughout and provides the perfect property for a mini-moon at any time of year.

Creatively converted, the property has been completed to ensure your every comfort. There's also an attractive courtyard garden, where you can relax, enjoy the sea air and admire the views. With prices for seven-night stays starting from £794, it's a luxury hideaway like no other, situated in an unrivalled location with an inspiring interior boasting numerous mod cons creating the perfect retreat all year round.

Stroll just 50 metres from the retreat to the beach to swim, paddleboard or catch a ferry over to Teignmouth, where you can shop for local produce, browse in galleries and dine out. Amble 500 metres and through a former smugglers' tunnel down to spend time on the secluded beach at Ness Cove. www.marsdens.co.uk/cottage/

Q We want to enjoy a Cornish mini-moon after our summer wedding in Truro. Where can you suggest?
A Claire Ridley says: Fall in love with the Roseland Peninsular on your honeymoon with a stay at The Nare Hotel in Carne Beach. Part of the PoB Hotels collection, this stylish property is packed full of Cornish charm, with hand-picked antiques and traditional interiors while the gardens are fringed by palm trees and uninterrupted views of Carne Beach and the English Channel.

A visit to the Spa at The Nare Hotel isn't to be missed, and access to it is included with all overnight stays. A highlight is the sea-view hot tub, the indoor pool with a jet stream and the selection of tailored treatments available using Dermalogica products.

Guests of The Nare Hotel are invited to enjoy a private charter aboard the hotel's classic wooden motor boat, the Alice Rose, the perfect experience for honeymooners. During a bespoke sailing trip, explore the calm Cornish waters of the Fal and Helford Rivers, and discover the hidden beauty spots that are only accessible by boat. The team at The Nare has curated a full-day experience for guests that includes a delicious seafood picnic with Portloe lobster and local fish whilst at anchor in a quiet cove that is surrounded by one of the UK's most stunning Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The private charter is entirely bespoke and can accommodate guests' preferred routes or special occasions within the Roseland Peninsula.

Q We want to combine a mini-moon and babymoon in Cornwall, where do you suggest?
A Carbis Bay says: Carbis Bay Holidays, based in St Ives, provide luxury hand-picked self-catering holiday cottages, perfect for a staycation mini-moon in the region, a relaxing hen weekend or a babymoon getaway which in Cornwall alone, has seen a 100% increase in Google searches this year.

The idea of a babymoon is to spend quality time as a duo before becoming a trio and many couples are looking for a staycation spot if it's a double celebration and wedding bells are also on the horizon. Carbis Bay Holidays provide the perfect base.

Belyars Penthouse offers a luxurious stay in St Ives. The property is flooded with natural light through its large floor-to-ceiling windows and the balcony, which acts as a suntrap, showcases breathtaking panoramic sea views while the open-plan layout provides a home-from-home feel.

The cosy cottage named Whistler is ideal for those escaping during the winter months. This three-bedroom Victorian house has been lovingly rebuilt, preserving its original features.

Positioned on the ground floor, the Coast apartment boasts mesmerising maritime views across St Ives Bay to the Godrevy lighthouse and comes with complimentary spa passes while others feature decked terraces and open-plan living areas.

Last but certainly not least, the one-bedroom contemporary Hepworth apartment is only a short walk away from the town centre and Porthmeor Beach with a private patio and far-reaching views. There's no need to leave your fur baby at home with this property because it's pet friendly.
