Whatever the time of year, the Great British countryside is wonderful for relaxing cottage breaks. We love the National Parks in particular. England’s National Parks feature special places such as Dartmoor and Exmoor where you can enjoy getting back to nature but there are so many to choose from and each offers its own unique attractions. Some of our favourites in England include the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. Scotland, Wales and Ireland also offer easily accessible national parks. Other wonderful areas of rural Britain include Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Wherever you choose to visit, let us help you find a great place to stay and if you need more ideas or information see our guide to the best of the British countryside.
