Country cottages in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)

We are fortunate to have a collection of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in the UK, 35 of which are in England, four in Wales and one which straddles the Welsh English border. The remainder are in Northern Ireland. There are 35 areas of outstanding natural beauty so too many to list here but some well known AONBs include the Chilterns and the Cotswolds.
