We all know that February is the month of love so what better way to keep the trend going than with a list of six ideas for your next date.
It might not sound like much but time spent together on a long, leisurely walk can be blissful. Take the dogs with and make it a real outing. Newmarket has some wonderful walking routes and wide open spaces when taking the chance to stroll across the gallops in the early evening. Other routes to consider for a nice walk with some scenery include the popular Three Churches Walk that links Gazeley, Dalham and Moulton (popping in for a drink at The Packhorse Inn is an idea and makes a great resting spot) or you could make your way along the Devil’s Dyke.
Treat your loved one to a spoil at the Spa at Bedford Lodge. At the moment you can take advantage of the Lover’s Paradise Spa Break, a package that includes a luxurious overnight stay at the four red star Bedford Lodge Hotel, a delicious three-course dinner in the award winning Squires restaurant, a full English breakfast and a fabulous spa day!
The spa package includes a 50 minute each couples treatment (warm candle, oil back, neck, shoulders, hands, feet and scalp massage in their couples suite) as well as a glass of Prosecco and strawberries in the relaxation room, a one course lunch with a choice of soft drink as well as full use of the hydrotherapy and heat experiences.

Forget the romance for a second and get competitive! A visit to Wildtracks Activity Park is a great idea for a fun date. Test your partner’s skills on the go-kart track and see who can get to the chequered flag in first place. Nothing like a bit of friendly competition to get the heart racing.

There are some wonderful romantic spots in Newmarket and surrounds that offer up a variety of options. Head to Montaz for a taste of their delicious Pan-Indian cuisine, visit Squires at Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa and taste the wonderful dishes the award-winning kitchen serves up. Enjoy the charm of The Packhorse Inn, get cosy next to a roaring fire and enjoy each other’s company. The Red Lion in nearby Soham is another wonderful restaurant to try with its interesting history and fantastic decor. Poets House, in neighbouring Ely is another wonderfully charming venue that guarantees romance. Why not take advantage of their Romantic Stay package and stay the night. The Tack Room is another great shout with a fantastic setting, great food and cocktails.
Has your Tinder date bragged about being smart? Test them by taking them to an art gallery. A walk around Palace House is the chance to spend some quality time together admiring an amazing collection of art. While you’re there, see who can survive on the racehorse simulator the longest! And what better way to add to that epic date selfie than with one of the retired racehorses in the Retraining of Racehorses yard.
The gardens at Chippenham Park make a wonderful setting for some time together. Spend hours wandering around and exploring the tranquil surroundings. Whether it’s the spectacle of the Snowdrops in February or the changing colours of the Autumn Gardens later in the year the property is a must-see. This is the perfect activity to spend quality time together sitting next to the water admiring the view or wandering around the nooks and crannies.
