Self-catering accommodation in England suited to walkers
The national parks of England offer a wealth of choice for walkers of all abilities. Ramblers and walkers are adept at discovering new walks almost anywhere. The country is criss-crossed with numerous footpaths and ancient rights of way. We have so many areas designated as those of Outstanding Natural Beauty that it is sometimes difficult to make a choice.
Each area has a different character and things to see and do. The south of England tends to have gentle green hills and a mild climate. This is where you can marvel at the white horses carved into the chalky hillsides and mixed woodland with oak and beech.
A more rugged terrain awaits walkers in the Midlands and the Peak District. There are caves and waterfalls to discover, and a rock strewn landscape with steeper hills and ridges.
The further north you travel, the wilder the countryside becomes, with higher hills and gleaming lakes in the Lake District National Park, to the rugged and fabulous remoteness of Northumbria with its moors, rivers and forests.
Find a wide range of self-catering accommodation; cottages, remote and secluded cottages, houses in the country, apartments, pine lodges, log cabins, and even houseboats. A small cottage complex may be suitable for large groups of walkers. Short breaks are usually available except during the peak season.
