LEAP FOR LOVE IN THE LANCASHIRE HILLS THIS FEBRUARY
Nothing says romance like a hand-in-hand amble across the rolling hills of Lancashire and this year, we’re predicting there to be a record number of hearts ‘leaping’ and cries of “YES” when marriage proposals are made at some of Lancashire’s finest viewpoints on 29th February.
With so much beautiful natural landscape around us, Lancashire’s lookout points make perfect outdoor spots for declarations of love this Valentine’s Day. And with Leap Year upon us too, tradition says it’s the ladies’ turn to pop the all-important question on this extra day of 2020.
So, we’ve done the homework for you and found some of Lancashire’s most perfect walks to get the heart pumping, all within close proximity of our stunning new homes development, Fellside:
- Clitheroe Castle. Make your own piece of history at the 800-year old site of Clitheroe Castle. Sitting at the highest point overlooking Pendle Hill and Ribble Valley, it’s certainly a breath-taking spot for a memorable moment together. Perhaps you’ll be tempted to settle in a new home near Clitheroe after your visit. 🙂
- Darwen Tower. Hopeless romantics will love this fairytale setting to get down on one knee or share sweet nothings. Upon reaching the top of Darwen Hill, walkers can mount the internal steps to the top of the tower, where you can see as far away as North Yorkshire and the Isle of Man on a clear day. Can you imagine anything more beautiful than this setting at dusk or dawn?
- Longridge Fell. Closest to Fellside and not for the faint-hearted, this steep ascent to Spire Summit is well worth the effort for a top spot to tell the world how much you love your partner. From the top, you will have great views over Beacon Fell and the Trough of Bowland. Absolutely beautiful.
- Perhaps cuddled up underneath a blanket on a sweeping coastline is your idea of a romantic spot. It doesn’t get much better than Lancashire’s Silverdale when the sun is setting. Don’t forget your bottle of bubbly (and maybe a flask of tea!).
- For the avid ramblers amongst you, why not take advantage of the extra day this year and head to Lancashire’s highest point at Gragareth. There’s steep climbs past the ‘Three Men’ and you’ll see one of the highest boundary stone walls in the country. At 2,060 ft you’ll feel on top of the world, looking down over the best of Lancashire’s beautiful landscape with your loved one.
Lancashire really does offer it all – from forests and hills, to peaks and coastline, it’s great outdoors can be enjoyed whether relaxing or on an adventure, so let yourself be swept up in the romance!
