Great Salkeld, Penrith
If you’re looking for show stopping views and a first date idea that’ll take you away from it all, then Great Salkeld in the Eden Valley is the place to go.
“We decided to go for a walk with our dogs on a lovely path down the river,” says Kevin. And he’s not the only one; lots of eHarmony’s couples recommend a country walk for their first date. Even if you’re not an avid walker, it can be a great way to burn off nervous energy while you get to know each other. And anyone that’s ever been on a trek will tell you that it’s one of the few places that silence is acceptable, so it’s a great option if you’re not the talkative type. Best of all, dog owners can bring a little moral support along too.
Known for its rural beauty and unspoilt scenery, the river Eden and Great Salked, a quaint village of just 400 people, makes for a charming first date. With footpaths ranging from 15 minutes to 5 hours, you can bite off as much or as little as you’d like.
There’s plenty to see too, from the local wildlife to Long Meg and Her Daughters – the third largest stone circle in England.
