Romantic Outdoor Date Ideas for Valentines Day

If you and yours love the outdoors, why not spend this Valentines Day doing something a little bit different. We've put together a few of our favourite outdoor date ideas to make this year even more special. Take a break from the routine date night in a restaurant and find your adventurous side together.

1. Rent a Cottage in the Cotswolds

Explore what the Cotswolds has to offer this Valentines Day and spend a night or two in a stunning local cottage. Whisk someone special off to a countryside retreat where you'll be able to spend some quality time together. Westley Farm is surrounded by acres of woodland for you both to get lost in. If you're the adventurous type, there's a local gliding club down the road so you can take in the surroundings from the air. But, if you'd rather spend Valentines Day with your feet up and a glass in hand, there's an equally wonderful selection of local pubs for you to try out.

2. Take on a Valentine's Day Hike Together

Why not avoid the crowded restaurants and bars this year and instead enjoy a hike in the countryside together. Take the time to enjoy the beauty of nature while you spend some alone time in each others company. You could even make the hike a little more romantic by watching the sunset alongside one another in the countryside. Take a look at the National Trust Map to find a hiking route near you.

4. Cosy Up in Clumber Park

Why not combine a scenic walk and romantic meal this Valentines Day and visit Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire. Get lost together within the many pathways and woodland areas.

Over the Valentines Weekend, you'll be able to enjoy a specially designed Valentines Menu.

Make this Valentines Day one to remember by finding somewhere quiet to see the stars together.
