10 cheap dates for nature lovers

Hey readers,

I am a big fan of being outdoors as quite claustrophobic and it got me to thinking about date ideas to do with nature lovers. So, here are my top 10 date ideas for the nature lovers out there.

1. Stargazing.

A lovely way to spend an evening with someone outside (unless it is raining) is to get a throw to go somewhere grassy have some drinks and star gazing. it is so peaceful and calm.

2. Nature scavenger hunt.

 A quirky date to do outdoors is to print a nature scavenger hunt and go someplace that is full of nature. A fun thing to do as well competes with one another and it is a great way to connect with someone.

3. Walk in the woods.

I love trees, they are just so beautiful so going to woods is in my eyes totally escapism. It is the beautiful natural environment and it just enjoyable disconnect from everything for a little while with someone.

4. Go hiking.

If you like a challenge and have the stamina then try going on a trek, it is a great way to do something that you have to work hard physically and feel really good after.

5. Outdoor picnic.

During the more milder seasons, a brilliant idea is to get some lunch food and a blanket again if you look locally there are plenty of places you explore. if you have the funds then maybe go further afield and look for somewhere that is eye pleasing. it will make a really good day out and you can't beat eating Al fresco, food just tastes much more enjoyable being out in the fresh air.

6. Go geocaching. 

If you have a smart phone download the free app geocaching where you use the map to locate containers called geocaches or catch at a specific location where you use coordinates to find it, which is basically a fun treasure hunt. You did need to have a GPS device to play, but everything is free just need to type the location and a map will appear of where the geocaches are for you to find. 

7. Go to the beach.

Alternatively to green type locations why not check out the beach with golden sand and watching the waves come crashing down is a fantastic place to chill out to someone.

8. Have a BBQ.

 Another fine Al fresco choice to do on a date outdoors is to have a BBQ in your back garden or some a place that allows BBQ, but be best to check beforehand instead of turning up to a place disappointed. 

9. Rent a bike.

You don't need to own a bike to enjoy bike rides as there are places now that cater to people loaning bikes for the day, which is awesome to go on a bike ride with someone. Also, check out places that allow bikes too as there many facilities that offer people riding bikes. 

10. Attend a festival.

This more apt for summer but check out where you live, as for instance I live in Coventry and every year they host a three day festival in August that has free music gigs outdoors in the beautiful Memorial park. 

What kind of date ideas do you like to do outdoors?

Cheers for reading X


  1. I never think about star gazing! And we live out in the country. Definitely something to try once it gets warmer. Thanks. #KCACOLS

  2. I go on a lot of hikes with the ladies in my life. Great way to spend time together and great for the soul #KCACOLS

  3. Great ideas you have here. I'd love to have a go at geocaching.


  4. We live by the sea so walking along the sea in all weathers is a favourite of ours. Any sort of outdoor walking and combined with a picnic or snack is a really lovely way to spend some time together. Even on my own I find it really relaxing. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time.

    1. I would love to live honest the sea, something really calming about sea air X

  5. we can star gaze where we live due to light pollution but we went on holiday in October and there was no light pollution. We spent literal hours star gazing and I learned so much! You're the second blog I've read today that recommends Geocaching, I really do need to look into it! #KCACOLS

    1. Awww how lovely. Geocaching is awesome and free win win X

  6. These are some wonderful ideas. I love the outdoors. I'm going to pin this. :) #KCACOLS

  7. Lovely ideas, Sam! When my hubby and I had recently met, we sometimes went to a park and just hung out under a tree, looking up at the blossom, clouds etc. It would feel too cheesy now I think, but worked well back then :-)
    Feeding birds can be a fun one too. Also, I have to suggest skinny dipping together, especially at nighttime or dawn/dusk, very romantic. Unfortunately my hubs isn't keen on swimming or bathing though... But for other couples out there, go ahead and enjoy ;-) x #KCACOLS

    1. Not cheesy at all, I spend a lot of time in the park in the early days with hubby too. Simple pleasures X

  8. Oh I love this idea for date night, the most romantic dates I’ve been on with my husband is stargazing at the beach. #kcacols
