Love is not just for Valentine's Day

Love is in the air once when Valentine’s Day approaches.

Florists are working through the night, the queue outside Thornton’s is longer than your lunch break and every restaurant is fully booked - it must be that time of year again!

But if love and romance are on your agenda, the day or the date is of little importance. What matters is finding time in a busy world to concentrate solely on the one you love. And one way to do that is to take yourselves off for a few blissful days on a romantic holiday, whether for an ultra-special Valentine’s Day or simply because you are in love and the time is right. As it happens, we can help you to do this in a cosy log cabin, deep in the forest…

Here are 7 reasons why you need to get away on a romantic holiday:

1. To spend quality time with each other.

It’s an overused phrase but quality time is so important to the health of a relationship. Time away from a million interruptions, from responsibilities, from the demands of children, from work, from never having enough time. Time to spend with each other, reconnecting and remembering why it is you fell in love.

2. Do things together.

Simple things such as long walks, lunch in country pubs, laughing together, watching movies. Or high energy fun; canoeing the rapids, long cycle rides, climbing hills and mountains. Shared experiences lead to shared memories and a strong bond.

3. To talk and to listen.

Communication is the key to a strong relationship and often real communication is lost behind conversations about whose turn it is to take out the bin, the latest office gossip or what’s for dinner tonight. A few days away gives you the time to open up, to talk about your worries, to share your hopes and dreams, to make plans and to take stock.

4. To show your appreciation.

An often overlooked dynamic of a successful relationship is making the effort to show your partner you appreciate them. You could buy your partner a piece of jewellery or the latest technological gadget but there is a body of research to show that the pleasure of material things diminishes quickly, while the pleasure of shared experiences grows over time. Show your partner how much they mean to you by spiriting them away on a Forest Holiday for two.

5. To enjoy a new perspective.

Same old, same old leads to same old, same old. Sometimes a change of scenery is all you need to see things from a new perspective. Taking yourselves out of the day to day, the four walls of office and home, the general cacophony of life, allows you to breathe again, to appreciate nature, breathe lungful’s of fresh air and feel the freedom to look at your relationship anew.

6. To make plans for the future.

It's all very well seizing the moment, but sometimes you have to plan ahead so that the moments are there to be seized. A few days away together gives you chance to rekindle your dreams for your shared future and make solid plans for the life you want together.

7. And to relax...

Slow down, slow right down. Take your partner’s hand and climb into a luxurious hot tub. Notice the stars in the sky, the scents and sounds around you, the hoot of an owl and the bark of a fox. Enjoy doing nothing together, away from the stresses of the world.

Where better for your romantic escape than a Forest Holiday? Feel the world of the forest envelope you and relax into each other’s arms without a care in the world. Choose a Golden Oak Hideaway for two, complete with double shower, luxurious sunken bath with forest views and lots of romantic extras. Or a spacious Silver Birch or Golden Oak cabin with a fabulous outdoor hot tub. Whatever you choose, enjoy time together and create some special memories. 

Put the romance back into your life with a Forest Holiday for two, whenever the mood takes you.
