Sensational south coast proposal spots!

by | 8 December, 2018

With the ‘Beast from the East’ threatening to shroud us in more nail-bitingly cold weather, we thought we’d brighten up your day with a post about the South Coast’s most romantic proposal spots.

From heady heights to calm waters and spectacular dining experiences, here are three fabulous ideas that you can (subtly!) hint at to your partner…

Golden Cap

At 191 metres above sea level, Golden Cap is the highest point on the South Coast, and a prominent feature of Dorset’s much-loved Jurassic Coast.

With much of the clifftop unfenced, it’s not for the faint-hearted, but the views of Lyme Regis, Lyme Bay and even the very tip of Devon certainly make the precariousness worth it! If you’re lucky enough to be proposed to on Golden Cap, you’ll know that when you uttered the words ‘I will’, you were the highest person on the South Coast!

Long Groyne

You’ll find Long Groyne at the end of a seemingly endless, uninterrupted beach that skirts Dorset’s historic Hengistbury Head.

Because most visitors ride the Land Train to Mudeford Spit, or walk atop Hengistbury Head itself, the beach leading to Long Groyne is invariably quiet and peaceful. With panoramic views across to the Isle of Wight and Hengistbury Head’s craggy cliffs behind you, this is a secluded and rugged spot that will make you feel a million miles from anywhere.

Shell Bay Seafood Restaurant

Tucked on the edge of the Isle of Purbeck, and with uninterrupted views across Poole Harbour to Brownsea Island, Shell Bay is an idyllic spot to dine, wine and (hopefully!) get engaged.

This seriously serene seafood restaurant boasts romantic outdoor dining areas and, on cooler days, an indoor space that ensures the views remain intact. Order some oysters, go for a bottle of fizz and make it a night to remember.
