Imagine a country where you had to travel a maximum of 70 miles to reach the sea from any direction...imagine the UK!
A sea that varies in mood from surfing swells to the calm and relaxing environment of small coastal harbours, where a language barrier does not exist.
Where you can choose, (to name but a few), between the luxurious escapism of a 5 star country house, a fun hiking weekend, putting up your own tent in beautiful Dorset surroundings, standing way up on a hillside in the clear air looking out over lush green fells, or weaving your way gently through historic canals without disturbing the rich wildlife around you.
Somewhere you also know that you can take your pet dog to share your experience, or to give you an excuse to get out and walk among this land of beautiful and varied holiday destinations - like the Chiltern Hills for example. How about a group holiday in a National Park? The list goes on.. Welcome to the UK!
Pet-friendly cottages, pubs, holiday parks, self-catering, B&Bs, short breaks, cheap breaks, great escapes and more, the excitement of a Great British holiday is just on your doorstep.
Whether you choose to hire a cruiser and go at your own pace through the Norfolk Broads, or spend a holiday exploring the history, sweeping valleys, and rugged slopes of Snowdonia in North Wales, you are bound to find something in the UK that will suit you and your family.
From the golden beaches of Cornwall to hillside caves of Pembrokeshire, the extent of variation is in abundance on this spectacular island.
And when it comes to caves, the Peak District National Park provides some of the best examples in Europe, let alone the UK. Consider the show caves at Castleton for instance.
The majestic West Chamber of Oxlow Cavern’s naturally decorated West Swirl Passage is a sight to behold and there’s nothing quite like the eerie sound of underground streams and waterfalls as you move through Giant’s Hole – these are the kinds of diverse experiences that a holiday in the UK can bring. And watch out for Late Deals and cheap deals too.
For an experience of pure relaxation, try a self-catering holiday cottage in the Cotswolds and the surrounding area. Roam the benign hills that inspired Laurie Lee and the Malvern poets; enjoy a leisurely cream tea in ‘chocolate box’ farmhouse accommodation, sample the spa waters amidst the elegant Regency architecture of Cheltenham, wander around the charming streets and dreaming spires of Oxford, or take a room in Bath, Jane Austen’s home town. The UK has it all.
The UK holiday scene may be best known for its seaside attractions, but there’s so much to do inland that ignoring it is impossible. Find country pubs with accommodation in the Chilterns, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty lying just to the north and west of London, within the counties of Herts, Beds, Bucks, Berkshire and Oxfordshire, where you can enjoy walking in glorious English countryside. If your looking for accommodation convenient for the London Olympics in 2012, the Chilterns may hold the answer. There are excellent road (M1, A41, A40, M40, M25) and rail links into London and other Olympic venues such as the rowing venue at Eton Dorney near Slough in Berkshire
The Scottish Highlands provides some of the most spectacular scenery the Northern Hemisphere. Its backdrop is a special mix of snow capped peaks and luscious green hills – making it ideal for outdoor adventures spanning from hiking to skiing.
Of course, Ben Nevis may be the highest mountain in the UK, but Wales’ Snowdonia National Park also has its fair share of hillside activities. You may not be able to ski here, but the fantastic scenery lends itself to some great walks.
So, whether you are looking for adventure, a golfing holiday on the Lancashire Coast or for some relaxing quality time with your family in a Kent rural idyll, a Devon break with friends, a loved one, or even your pets, you are sure to find a holiday in the UK to meet every requirement.
