7 Dating Ideas In Somerset

Whether it is your first date or you've been with your partner for years, dating is so important!

I know myself that whilst I've been with Paul now for 4 years it's really crucial that we still allow ourselves to have dates even though we've got a two year old which can be proven difficult. 
Today I've put together a few ideas of some great dates that you could have in Somerset and surrounding areas. So, whether it's your first date or you've been together years they'll be something for you here. 

1. The Standard Meal With A Romantic Twist.
Perhaps you just want to go for a standard meal but with a more romantic location and setting, then I could recommend a lot of restaurants in the South West because I am a real foodie but I will narrow it down to three. 
The Greyhound is your typical just lovely country pub with a warm and cosy atmosphere inside, really nice all year round, romantic and cosy in the winter, but lovely and chilled in the summer in the beer garden. Located in a small village called Staple Fitzpaine on the outskirts of Taunton.
The Willow Tree is very romantic, it's French and the food is just divine! It's candlelit too. Perrrfect. It's located in the centre of Taunton although very hidden so I'd Google the directions first as it's a hidden treasure!
Sotto Sotto which is an Italian restaurant in Bath. It's not your usual Italian such as the likes of Prezzo and Zizzis it has something much better than that. It's Italian romance. It's super friendly and just has an amazing atmosphere. Amazingly presented food too!

2. Bristol Hippodrome.
Why not do something different and go to the theatre! There is always something on and it might be nice to see something you don't usually see. Check out what is on here. Finish off with a lovely meal after?!

3. Bowling
This is definitely a good date to break the ice! If you're feeling nervous and it is your first date well I'd say this is the place for you. A really fun date, even I'd go bowling now with my partner! This would also be good as a child-friendly date if this were to be the case. There are plenty of Bowling alleys all over the county.

4. The Zoo
This is again a great child-friendly date but if not, who needs kids to go to the zoo! It's for everyone and can again be a great ice breaker. Personally this would be my ideal first date as I looove the zoo! Bristol is great well looked after zoo and cute animals too.

5. Spa Day The Cleve Or Thermae Spa In Bath.
Why not relax together? There are plenty of Spas all over Somerset but a couple that I would reccomend are The Cleve Hotel in Wellington Somerset and also Britains only natural spa, the Thermae Spa in Bath. You can both chill out and also gives a great chance to get to know eachother.

6. The Beach
This again is another favourite of mine, just simply going to the beach can just put you at ease. It's a relaing place to have fish and chips on the beach, maybe an ice cream too. Have a go on the coin machines. Lovely.

7. Hestercombe Gardens
Take a walk through the gardens here, on a beautiful day it's gorgeous and romantic. Have a cream tea afterwards, it's bliss.There is lakes, temples and woodland walks.
