The United Kingdom has plenty to offer for holidaymakers who like their countryside retreats. The phrase “from Lands End to John O’Groats” is often used, but the number of holiday opportunities and spectacular countryside locales which are present in the distance between the two famous locations is astounding. Even though winter is fast approaching, there is plenty of opportunity for the perfect country break, whether you’re a fan of exhausting countryside walks with spectacular scenery or a little country cottage with crackling fireplaces, the UK has it all this Autumn/Winter. Let’s look at the top 5 best Country Breaks you can visit these upcoming months:
St. Austell in Cornwall offers plenty of fantastic winter wonderland countryside with its amazingly dramatic views over St. Austell Bay offering plenty of photograph opportunities and the nearby Eden Project to visit should the weather turn bad, this area of the UK is well worth visiting.
Bournemouth and the Dorset area offers some of the most popular summer locations for UK holidaymakers, but it also still has much to offer for the autumn and winter country break. Locations such as Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove are still easily accessible in the colder weather and offer some breathtaking views, whilst Burley and its winter woodland walks offer treats such as wild pony spotting in the New Forest.
One of the UK’s best locations in terms of offering both scenic destinations, tourist attractions and a vast array of the world renowned Lake District hotels, pubs and restaurants. From the amazingly popular destinations such as Lake Windermere, to the lesser known idyllic surrounds of Holme Fell, Coniston, the Lake District is a perfect countryside getaway regardless of the time of year.
Wales offers some of the most spectacular scenery in all of the UK, including Wales’ highest mountain, Snowdon. The Snowdon Mountain Railway still makes regular trips to the summit café right up until the end of October, so there’s still time to take in one of Wales’ finest offerings.
The city of Derry can offer plenty of fine hotels and those looking for top tourist attractions, but this is the 5 best country breaks in the UK, so it’s fortunate that it’s close to one of Britain’s finest natural phenomenon’s, The Giant’s Causeway. The site is accessible all throughout winter barring 24th, 25th and 26thDecember, so can make a great winter retreat and sightseeing countryside destination all in one.
