The UK and Ireland are blessed with a number of National Parks which are protected and special areas in terms of their natural beauty and scenery. Some of these parks cover quite expansive areas and are excellent places for cottage holidays particularly if you are looking for tranquillity and some of the best landscapes on offer in the whole of the country.
