It’s a leap year and, according to tradition, that means that a woman is allowed to ask a man to marry her. While there are many theories on where this originated from, here at Eat Sleep Live Herefordshire we don’t need an excuse to get cuddly with our loved ones and thought that, whether you’re a man or a woman, if you’re thinking of popping the question or even if you’re hitched and just feeling a little romantic, we’d like to give you some inspiration on beautiful Herefordshire spots to make some memories in.
If you love the outdoors, Herefordshire and the Wye Valley offer the most spectacular viewpoints and locations for a picture perfect proposal. Imagine saying ‘Yes’ while looking over an iconic River Wye view such as the one from Symonds Yat, or the panoramic sight across Herefordshire’s horizon from the top of Queenswood at Dinmore near Leominster.
How about a secluded picnic amongst the butterflies in Haugh Woods, or whispering sweet nothings on a love seat in the county’s stunning gardens such as the Laskett Gardens at Kentchurch, Stockton Bury near Leominster, pack a picnic for The Weir Garden at Swainshill, or enjoy the informal grounds of Hellens Manor at Much Marcle.
