Give UK Couples Credit
Love in a credit crunch? It may seem hopeless when there are still couples around you flashing the cash on weekends abroad. But, every challenge presents an opportunity and you are ready to embrace one. So pity those with more money than romance as they race down the motorway, shuffle through the airport and snatch a hurried weekend away. While they are squeezing the last out of their credit cards, you can be breathing life into your new relationship closer to home.
Here is some inspiration from one of our very best romantic poets:
I love your hills and I love your dales,
And I love your flocks a-bleating;
but oh, on the heather to lie together,
With both our hearts a-beating!
Hills and Dales
In this green and undulating land no one has to go too far before they can head into the hills or dally in the dales. From the South Downs in Kent, Sussex and Hampshire to the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District, the hills are alive with life. And at this time of year they are full of flocks a bleating.
What could be more inspiring to a blossoming romance than the sight of Scotland’s dark moorlands swept up in a summer blaze of purple heather? Add the gently lapping waves of Loch Ness or Loch Lomond and complete the picture with the white turret of a fairy tale castle. From dating site to what a sight!
For those who prefer their great outdoors less wild, summer is a time when most show gardens are open to the public. From the mighty arms of an ancient oak to the delicate fragrance of an English rose, love is in the air. Take a picnic and spread your blanket in the shade with hearts a beating!
But if the thought of the great British pollen count brings tears to your eyes, then the great indoors offers plenty of opportunities for romance under a roof:
From country house hotels to stately homes and art galleries, there are many romantic connections. Great houses have been built for love affairs, and the wood panelled corridors whisper of secret trysts. For those living near Cardiff dating sites close to home include the extravagantly romantic Castell Coch.
