    I'm sure this would of been asked before but do you guys have any recommendations on where to take a girlfriend away? Only been seeing each other for about 6 months, so don't wanna do anything too extravagant. UK or abroad is fine. Just want some nice stuff to do really

    I'm just joking.

    (FHUTA is actually a peninsula)

    If you're in the south of the country, or you don't mind travelling a while, the New Forest is always nice for country walk pub-crawls, nice dinners, massive B&B breakfasts. I've done it loads so ask here or PM if you want any recommendations.

    Come up to Scotland. Loads of nice places for weekends, like Mull or Orkney.

    Another vote for the New Forest. Lovely place for walking/cycling with Sir great little pubs/B&Bs. There's a great spa in Brockenhurst if she likes that sort of thing too.

    Though both excellent, aren't really handy! I'm sure I got much more out of walking round "Balamory" finding all the houses than the kids did...

    Haha, Mull is awesome. Great fish and chips too.

    If he's willing to go abroad get on a train and a ferry! Everyone lives ferries, especially chicks, they're romantic you see. Like Jack and Rose.

    Bath or Brighton are always a safe bet.

    Cartmel is lovely in the Lake District, it has a great restaurant too called l'enclume, lunch is 50 per head but you won't be disappointed :-)
    Ooh Cartmel is great - beat sticky toffee pudding I've ever had. They claim to have invented it I think?

    Yeah, and what sort of things are you into? You could get a cottage in the Lakes or up Alnwick way if you're north-ish and like the quiet, or the New Forest or somewhere if you're south-ish. You could do Bruges, if you fancy a medieval fairy tale city, or Brighton if you don't mind twats with extravagant beards. Bristol? Edinburgh?

    Yeah what kind of stuff are you looking for?

    It's a god awful time of year in the UK. Anything outdoorsy is going to be crap. Even city break type thing is going to be awful. I suggest a nice place with a Ye Olde Pub feel and a nice hotel with a fancy meal. And get pissed by a fire.

    If you're metrosexual enough for a it a couple's spa break somewhere can be nice but a bit expensive.

    Bruges is a good shout. Ended up there by accident once and it's a lovely place, awesome.

    Places NOT to go: Oxford is full of twats, Paris smells of wee.

    Bath. Lovely place to visit, with lots of things under cover with the miserable weather, but some nice walking if it is clear.

    I quite like the Herschel museum as well if you are a real geek.
