Topping the top 25 pastimes for couples in Female First magazine was wonderful walking. Yes, walking is a pastime anyone can enjoy but between a couple, it is the perfect way to spend quality time, out in the open and away from the stresses and strains of life. Whether it’s a Sunday stroll in the park or a full on walking holiday, what better way for 2 people who love each other to spend time doing? And what better location to enjoy this pastime with your loved one than in the Lake District?
Female First’s reason for putting walking in the top spot is as follows: “A long country walk or walk in the park- Walking does two things for couples- it gets their endorphins going so they are in better mood and allows some uninterrupted time to talk about their feelings and worries bringing them closer together.”
When it comes to precious holiday time together, and even though any form of holiday or getting away together is usually fun and relaxing, getting something more than just a sun tan makes a holiday even better. Walking holidays, based on the facts listed by Female First, are becoming increasingly more popular particularly in the UK. With staycations increasing and the popularity of walking in general, walking whilst on holiday is on the rise and what better way to see some of the best scenery the Lake District has to offer.
There’s no need to be tied down by booking an organised walking holiday or excursion. Simply arm yourselves with an OS map, buy a guide book or two and explore the Lake District just the two of you. Find a base for easy travel to walking start points such as Kendal. A stones throw from the motorway but just a short drive or train journey to Windermere and the heart of The Lakes.
