Romantic Breaks

Discover the romance of Nottinghamshire

From romantic strolls in the countryside to cosy dinners by candlelight there is plenty for you and your loved one to enjoy in Nottinghamshire.

Escape to the countryside

There are few things more romantic than taking a walk with a special someone so make sure you explore the countryside around Creswell Crags. These ancient caves were once a magnet for starry-eyed Victorian ladies who believed that if they threw their hatpins into one of the pools they would marry the first man they saw afterwards. Starting at the visitor centre you can choose one of several walking trails which take you through this enchanting area.

The landscape around Teversal is said to have inspired one of the greatest love stories ever told: Lady Chatterley’s Lover by Eastwood author D. H. Lawrence. A stroll along Teversal Trails will take you to Silverhill, which is one of the highest points in Nottinghamshire. From here you can enjoy glorious views of the surrounding area, including Hardwick Hall.

Nottinghamshire also boasts numerous country parks so click on the box below for more inspiration.
