Looking ahead to Valentine’s Day? While Valentine’s Day is likely to be affected by COVID-19 once again, there is still plenty that couples can do to make this a special time and create happy new memories together. Falling on a Monday this year, you could even make a weekend of it and Yorkshire could be the perfect place with so much to offer couples and breathtaking natural beauty.
So, what can you do on Valentine’s weekend in Yorkshire?
Stargazing With Your Spouse
Stargazing can be a deeply romantic activity with your partner and a chance to spend quality time together talking about the universe. The Yorkshire Coast is the perfect place for this, especially Kettleness which benefits from very little light pollution. You could even go to the Bruce Observatory on Whitby for a proper stargazing experience.
Parks With Your Partner
Strolling hand-in-hand with your partner around a park is always a romantic experience and you are spoilt for choice in Yorkshire. Here you have major highlights like North York Moors National Park and Yorkshire Dales National Park, which will be ideal for nature lovers that want to spend their time exploring breathtaking natural areas with their partner.
Another good option for those looking for more of a city break is Roundhay Park in Leeds. Roundhay Park attracts around a million visitors each year and it is easy to see why with over 700 acres of woodland, parkland, lakes and green spaces. The park also has an interesting history with the land being granted to Ilbert de Lacy, which saw it become the family’s hunting park in the 13th century.
Another historic park that is worth checking out with your partner is Skipton Castle Woods. A peaceful space hidden behind the striking medieval castle, Skipton Castle Woods is an ancient woodland that was key to life in the castle but now is a beautiful public space with evidence of its fascinating history throughout, including many unique trees that are over 250 years old.
Winding Down With Your Partner
These are a few highlights that scratch the surface of what Yorkshire has to offer couples. With a range of accommodation types in Yorkshire, you could even look into renting or purchasing your own getaway home. A holiday home on the coast or in the countryside could provide the perfect retreat with plenty of privacy, peace and quiet and a relaxed way of life.
For couples looking to make Valentine’s Day 2022 one to remember, you should seriously consider a romantic weekend in Yorkshire. Yorkshire has a huge amount to offer couples with its breathtaking natural beauty, history and fun towns and cities. This makes it a great destination for a romantic weekend or even somewhere for a holiday home.
