Fall in love with a new activity this Valentine’s Day.
With Valentine’s Day looming, we look at whether adventure get-aways or relaxation breaks are the most popular. In this blog, we list five ideas of places/destinations to visit this Valentines Day.
- Take a leisurely walk along the Cornish Coast – with many of the beaches in Cornwall winning awards, its no surprise this comes in at our number one suggestion! There is nothing more romantic than a leisurely stroll, with the wind in your hair blowing off those January cobwebs.
2. Visit a famous landmark photo spot such as Stonehenge – a visit to this prehistoric monument will take you to Wiltshire, two miles west of Amesbury. It consists of a ring of standing stones, each around 13 feet high, seven feet wide, and weighing around 25 tons. Seeing the English Heritage landmark during a sunset and capturing that all important selfie together, can’t fail to be a romantic experience!
3.Discover a hidden waterfall such as High Force in the North East of England – there is something magical about the tranquility of running water, making High Force in County Durham a great choice for a Valentines walk/hike, depending on your preference. The waterfall is within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and European Geopark. The whole of the River Tees plunges 70 feet over a precipice in two stages…
4. Take a stroll around one of the many Welsh castles – by one of many, we mean there are more than 600 castles in Wales, more per square mile than anywhere in the world! Some have been lived in continuously for a thousand years, while others are romantic ruins – perfect for the occasion! Pack yourself a picnic and make a day of it!
5. Spend the day spotting exquisite wildlife in Scotland such as Red Deer and Otters – the Red Deer Range in Galloway Forest Park has a viewing hide, and guided visits where you can learn more about these majestic animals. Otters live along many of Scotland’s waterways, but head for the west coast and the islands for the best chance of spotting them.
