Magnificent March Dating Ideas
Monday, March 9th, 2020
March is here and spring has arrived! With warmer days and lighter evenings, it really is a wonderful time to leave the norm behind and meet a new countryside single. But what dates can you plan to enjoy March madness to its full? We’ve got you covered on today’s countryside dating blog – we’ve got ten date ideas to make the most of the glories of March springtime.
1. A long walk after work
If you’re lucky enough to have a job with set hours, then planning to meet afterwards is easy. Rather than hole up on a pub or restaurant, make the most of the lighter evenings, wrap up warm and go for a countryside walk (make sure that you don’t go anywhere lonely if this is your first couple of dates).
2. Get in the garden and plant something
Doing something practical together is a wonderful way to make memories. Spring is the time to get outside and sow some seeds, so plan what you want to grow, get your seeds and tools ready then get your date around for a morning or afternoon of planting. Be sure to have some warming lunch or dinner ready to take the March chill away.
3. Enjoy the spring flowers
Spring blooms are beautiful, and as flowers are the ultimate symbol of romance, why not visit a flower field or garden together? Britain is full of flower fields which you can visit. Our favourites? Spring flowers at Greys Court in Oxfordshire, lavender at Hitchin Lavender and Yorkshire Lavender, tulips at Mottisfont in Hampshire and daffodils at Brodie Castle in Scotland.
4. Mini golf
Not just for kids or for holidays by the sea, mini golf allows you to let your hair down, escape normal life and have pure, honest fun (with a healthy touch of competition).
5. Get together for the rugby
March sees the Six Nations Rugby Championships start, and hanging out to watch the matches is a great way to forge bonds and chat. All the dates and information you need are here.
5. Embrace the sun and go on a bike ride
Even if you don’t own your own bikes, you can always find somewhere to rent them. Check out your local national park, National Trust estate or historic town, plan a route and find somewhere to explore.
7. Mark Earth Hour
At 8.30pm on 28 March 2020 we mark Earth Hour, and switch off all our electricals and lights. This is your opportunity for a gorgeously romantic evening. Whip out the candles, play your guitar, spend an hour together with no screens, no lights, no music, just you and your rural date.
8. Create a summer bucket list
If your relationship is blooming, make the most of spring evenings together by planning everything you’d like to do together in the summer. From adventurous days out to lazy afternoons at home, as you’ll both love the countryside, we’re sure you’ll find lots of date and life experiences you can look forward to sharing.
9. Enjoy the blossom
Cherry, apple, hawthorn, horse chestnut… at this time of year, the British countryside is bursting in to springtime joy. Take a drive or a walk deep in to the countryside and soak up the beauty around you.
10. Cook up a spring feast
The delights of spring aren’t just for the eyes, but for your tastebuds too. Artichoke, Beetroot, Cabbage, Carrots, Chicory, Cucumber, Leeks, Parsnip, Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Radishes, Rhubarb, Sorrel, Spring Greens, Spring Onions, Watercress. WOW. What a gorgeous lot of veg to enjoy! Set yourselves a challenge to eat seasonally for a week and see what delights you can rustle up together.
