It can be tricky, dating at the end of Britain’s longest cul-de-sac. Preston’s miles off, Morecambe and Blackpool are all the way across the sea, the Lake District’s penned you in; it’s just you, Barrow-in-Furness singles and no one else for miles around.
Once you meet that special someone, you’ll grow to love your relative isolation. Like Cathy and Heathcliff, in your very own rugged wonderland. If you wanted, you could make it so there’s absolutely nothing in the world to distract you from each other. If you wanted to, you could feel like the only two people in the world out here.
Check out our round-up of all the lonely, local, Barrow-in-Furness dating destinations you solitary snoggers can enjoy-
For you hardcore hiders who really don’t want to share your date with anyone, jump on the ferry and head out 1km from the southern tip of the Furness peninsula to this tiny (and I mean tiny) isolated rock in the middle of the Irish Sea. It has a king, a castle and a pub. And not much else. You and your date can wander freely around the bay, moors and ruined castle, talking about whatever comes to mind - the utter splendour of the island for instance – before stopping for dinner and maybe even the night; you can camp out under the stars or rent a room above the pub if you find you really aren’t ready for the date to end.
Scattered within this 24.5 square km of thick woodland are approximately 90 sculptures, often carved from natural or reclaimed material and ranging from the serene and beautiful to the downright bizarre. If you’re looking for a unique experience dating in Barrow-in-Furness this may well be the date for you. Pack a picnic, make it to Grizedale Tarn together and eat lunch at the waterfront. It’s truly stunning, and if you time your trip carefully, you could have it all to yourself.
Want to take in a little traditional natural beauty with a modern twist? Lakeland Segway is (not surprisingly) the Lake District’s only Segway based tour provider. These tours aren’t exactly a free dating activity, being fairly expensive. That said, if you're in work, or one of those professional singles who can afford to splash out, this particular expedition is totally worth it. You can also choose to add a ‘Glide and Dine’ option and have lunch at Graythwaite Hall provided either before or after.
