|A Romantic Date|
Romance isn't always about sharing a candlelit dinner though this is a very beautiful way to spend time with someone special. It can be doing things together you wouldn't normally do, such as cycling. Even if you are both avid cyclists how about making it a special occassion?
The New Forest is beautiful at any time of the year and because of its own unique climate it's often relatively warm. This area is England's newest National Park and has been a protected wilderness for many years. It is now recognised as one of the most important and unique wilderness areas in Western Europe. Forest people still graze their ponies, cattle, donkeys and pigs, part of the pastoral system of commoning. This right goes back at least 900 years to the time of William the Conqueror.
There can be few places in England where the ancient landscape has changed so little. These lands have an enchanted ambience that makes them irresistible. Find your wild side and cycle through leafy tracks, remote heathland and grassland strewn with bracken and gorse. Here you can feel a million miles away from everyday stresses. Leave your mobile turned off and regain your sense of fun and Romance. If the weather is pleasant stop for a picnic or when its colder visit one of the pubs or inns and snuggle together by a crackling log fire.
Take the train and hire a cycle for the day, www.newforestcyclehire.co.uk will be able to supply the bikes. Stay a little longer at one of the wildly romantic inns or a hideaway cottage tucked deep into the forest. www.thenewforest.co.uk lisits accomodation plus information about the New Forest.
If its too far for you to travel to the New Forest or you only have an afternoon together, there are plenty of places to explore. Check out your local cycle hire and be free, be wild, be romantic.
