We’ve gathered our favourite Christmas dating ideas, perfect for country people, to help you kickstart a romantic festive season and have a Muddy Little Christmas.

1. Carol concert

Head online and have a quick search to find your local carol concert and head their with your date. It’s a safe, friendly place to meet full of people having fun and coming together. Having a singalong will break the ice, and there’ll be plenty of time after to chat and get to know each other over a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie.

2. Christmas light switch on

What could be more cosy than to wrap up warm and head out to see the lights switched on in your town or village. They often come with some Christmassy market stalls and food and drink too so you can make a night of it.

3. Pantomime

Sometimes you have to embrace your inner child and what better way than at a panto? Not as formal as theatre, they make a great date location – lots of people, something to laugh at, and you can continue the fun after in the theatre bar.

4. Christmas movie

We’ve got a list as long as Santa’s address list of cosy Christmas films and you don’t need us to tell you how romantic this date can be. Even if you’re muddy through and through, you can’t resist the allure of snuggling up together in front of a magical Christmas film.

5. Escape the winter crowds

If Christmas isn’t a happy time for you and you want to escape the hectic nature and commercialism, this is a winter date idea to warm your soul. Meet in a local, country pub then head out for a long walk in the countryside.
