Countryside Destinations Sleights United Kingdom
It’s time to discover the great world that lies beyond your four walls.
The UK is blessed with so many stunning landscapes, beautiful views and wonderful areas of countryside. From the dramatic moors of Yorkshire and Northumberland, and the jagged mountains of Wales to Suffolk’s sunrise coast and the rugged scenery of Devon and Cornwall, there is so much to see, you won’t have enough time to fit it all in. A starting point could be some of the fifteen National Parks and thirty eight Areas of Outstanding Beauty across the UK – all wonderful, all with their own character – and all waiting for you to explore them.
In Yorkshire, don the walking boots and head out onto the North York Moors, one of the largest expanses of moorland in the United Kingdom where you will be guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome. Slightly further south and west, the Yorkshire Dales provides excellent walking and cycling opportunities for adventurous holidaymakers. The Dales as they are more commonly known include a collection of beautiful river valleys and hills.
Wales is the proud home to three National Parks, of which, Snowdonia is the largest. Covering 823 square miles of stunning landscapes, and the highest mountain in England and Wales it is a cottage holiday destination not to be missed. The other two National Parks are namely the Pembrokeshire Coast and Brecon Beacons.
Heading east across Britain, and you will find The Broads spanning across Norfolk and Suffolk. This National Park is a network of rivers and lakes covering more than 125 miles that were formed during medieval times.
In the south west there are two national parks, both of which fall into the county of Devon. Exmoor National Park is thought to be the smallest National Park in Britain, and Dartmoor National Park is a protected area of moorland covering over 368 square miles.
