Locations that promise to impress

Places designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are so for a reason. When you are looking to rent your next luxury holiday cottage or lodge choose one of these locations and you can be sure of a stunning self catering base for your holiday or short break.

Why holiday in UK Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty?

If you want to experience the most impressive and beautiful landscapes in the UK, a holiday to a National Park or Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a must. These are areas across the UK that are so naturally beautiful that they have been formally recognised, and as such are protected and conserved. From gorgeous coastlines to impressive mountains and serene lakes and forests, there are a variety of these areas, with something to suit every visitor. So strap on your hiking boots and get ready to immerse yourself in the magic of the British countryside. Lakes, Hills and gorgeous vistas, what more could you need!

Things to do in National Parks 

However, you don't have to be a keen walker to enjoy the spectacular landscapes during a holiday in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or National Park. There are plenty of other ways you can experience the splendour of these areas, whether it be rock climbing at Dartmoor National Park, kayaking along the Pembrokeshire Coast, spotting wildlife in the New Forest or enjoying a leisurely picnic aboard a canal boat on the Norfolk Broads. The Great Outdoors is a great opportunity for all families to bond and experience all the UK has to offer.
