If you’re looking to impress your lady – or gentleman friend – with St Valentine’s Day looming you are more likely to be thinking flowers, chocolates or a bottle of something special than a yomp round the Herefordshire countryside.
You may need to think, again, however if the country’s largest walking and leisure activity holiday provider has got it right. They’re suggesting that couples who have drifted apart can rediscover their love on a walking holiday.
HF Holidays, a co-operative society that has been organising outdoor holidays since it was founded in 1913, says its guides can help couples to walk and talk through their problems and ensure lovebirds stay that way and don’t succumb to ill-fated bickering and quarrels, as well as helping those still in the honeymoon stage of their relationship stay on the right track.
Jim Forward, the Chief Executive says: “For some couples communication can become an obstacle when, for example, children fly the nest, which is where walking and our holidays come in. On a walking holiday you’re away from everyday distractions and by walking together amidst the beautiful British countryside or seaside, away from routine drudgery, couples can really reinvigorate their relationships and rediscover their love for one another out in the open air.”
If you want to ramble back to romance the company has 19 country houses in picturesque locations across the UK and more than 80 walking locations across Europeand worldwide. Visit www.hfholidays.co.uk for more details.
