There are some starry-eyed moments that stay with you forever – an unexpected meeting, that first kiss, getting down on one knee. So in celebration of Valentine’s Day eight happy couples have shared their most romantic moments with us.

Rocks at Cheddar Gorge

Cheddar Gorge, Somerset - Pulpit Rock 

‘I chose Cheddar Gorge to propose because it's lovely there and I wanted it to happen in a special place. I was going to ask in the caves, but they were too busy so I got down on one knee by Pulpit Rock and asked her there.’ - Lloyd K, visitor

Mussenden Temple at Downhill Demesne

Downhill Demesne, Mussenden Temple 

‘We visited Northern Ireland last summer for a romantic getaway. We went to most of the National Trust places on the northern coast, but the Mussenden Temple at Downhill Demesne was my favourite. My boyfriend proposed to me here at the window looking out over the cliffs and sea. It was perfect.’ - Emma F, visitor

Giant's Causeway, County Antrim 

‘My special place is Giant's Causeway. This interesting and beautiful place is where I said 'yes' when my husband asked me to be his wife. With such a fantastic backdrop and awesome story who could say no?’ - Sarah G, visitor

Visitors beside the Palladian Bridge at Prior Park Landscape Garden, Bath, Somerset

Prior Park, Somerset 

‘Prior Park is our special place for an excellent reason - it was the location my partner chose to propose to me. He chose it as he knows I love water and with the bridge and spectacular views of Bath, I think he picked a very special place.’ - Clare T

Plas Newydd Garden trees

Plas Newydd, Anglesey - underneath a tree 

‘It started with a kiss in the pouring rain, underneath a magnificent tree, in the beautiful grounds of Plas Newydd. It led to our wedding and our boys. We all love the grounds, with the hidden nooks, the best hill to roll down and of course the amazing trees!’ - Julia H, visitor

Saltram house peeks through the trees along avenue of lime trees

Saltram, Devon - in the garden 

'I have always wondered if I'd properly fall in love. Then with the arrival of spring I knew in my heart that I was in love for the first time in my life. It was in the garden at Saltram that I first met her. Every visit there makes me smile.’ - Martin S, visitor

The Temple of Apollo reflected in the lake at Stourhead, Wiltshire

Stourhead, Wiltshire - in the Temple of Apollo 

‘I love Pride and Prejudice, especially the scene in the new film at Stourhead where Darcy proposes to Elizabeth in the rain. So, one rainy day my husband took me to that exact spot and asked me to marry him. Lizzie might've said no, but I said yes. It was one of the best moments of my life, and the beautiful setting added so much to the joy of it. Every time I see a photo of Stourhead, or revisit it, I am reminded of the day my life changed.’ - Stephanie S, visitor

View of Woodchester Park

Woodchester Park, Gloucestershire - in a secret spot 

‘There is a secret area in Woodchester with beautiful views and a stream passing through the middle, which looks beautiful no matter the weather. It holds very special memories for me as this is where I was proposed to over a picnic by my fiancé.’ - Asia W
