Winter Dating Ideas For Countryside Lovers

We’re past the shortest day of the winter and the days are, very gradually, getting longer. It may be cold and dark but we believe that January is a wonderful time for love in the countryside, and on our rural online dating site we love nothing more than making country introductions and getting you rural singles together and dating. So, without further ado, we present to you our favourite ideas for winter dates this January. Pull on your muddy wellies, wrap up warm and get out there!

1. Sledging

Any snow is an excuse to get out on the ‘slopes’ of England. Even if you’re in your 50s, there’s something about the magic of snow that lets your inner child loose and the lure of the fresh, crisp air is irresistible. Let your cares go and show your rural date the countryside-loving you.

2. Frosty hikes

There’s no such thing as bad weather…. so pull on your hiking boots, don your waterproofs and head out and about. Great if you both have dogs, you and your country date will have lots of time for them to get to know each other as you chat and share stories too.

3. Antique hunting

The British countryside is full of beautiful and quaint market towns, bursting with the treasure troves that are antiques shops. Meet your rural match there and while away a happy few hours searching for unusual pieces, then warm up after over a cup of tea and a scone.

4. Winter gardens

Rediscover the beauty of the landscaped gardens in winter. We always tend to think about visiting gardens as a spring and summer pastime, but these gardens look breathtaking in winter too. We love the parks and gardens owned by the National Trust and Royal Horticultural Society, and the added bonus is that they are safe places to visit with lots of staff and other visitors around, as well as easy parking!

5. Hit the beach

There’s nothing more exhilarating than stretching your legs on the beach, and thankfully we have a whopping 17,820 km of coastline here in the UK (according to the Ordnance Survey). If you have dogs or horses, take them for a run there or, if you’re more two-legged-inclined, then a long walk on the sands or cliffs followed by a cup of coffee will blow the cobwebs away and get the two of you talking.

6. Romantic afternoon in

If the weather truly is awful and getting outside just isn’t on the cards then get set for a romantic date at home. Dig out and dust off your favourite board games then settle down for a competitive gaming session. Who knows; you might get to see a different side of your date ? If games aren’t your thing then choose your favourite film EVER and share it with your date. We’ve got all the hygge vibes going on right now….
