Cornwall is one of the most beautiful regions in the UK with almost an endless list of things to see and do throughout the region. From the eerie Bodmin Moor with its historic and famous Jamaica Inn made popular by Daphne DuMaurier’s novel of the same name to the sometimes stormy surf of Sennen Cove, there’s a little something for everyone of all ages in Cornwall. Touring Holidays in Cornwall are massively popular for this reason, allowing visitors the ability to explore every corner of this welcoming and unique county.
Yorkshire is a hugely popular getaway destination for those looking for something a bit different. From the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales, the coastline towns of Scarborough and Whitby offering great sea views and the city of York itself with the impressive York Minster and Shambles Street, it’s got a special touch of something long lost in other regions of the country. With an air that almost transports you back to medieval times, Yorkshire is a magical place, all its own.
As you drive through northern Wales to Snowdonia, the beaches of the north coast give way to rugged peaks of the Snowdonia National Park. This part of the UK is unique and breathtakingly beautiful, with rolling valleys, stunning peaks of mountain tops and many different activities to take part in. Even if your mobility won’t allow, you can still get to the top of Mount Snowdon by train from Llanberis, something everyone must experience whether you climb the whole way or take the train route.
The southern coast of Wales is a unique place, similar to that of Snowdonia and the two of them together would combine to make a great two week long getaway that will be talked about for years to come. With sheer coastlines, beautiful hiking, beaches and a quiet way about its villages, Pembrokeshire is a serene home away from home. Head to St Davids for the popular Whitesands Bay beach, a long stretch of sandy beach that becomes highly sought after for holidaymakers in the area in the hot summer months.
Whatever your desires this summer, consider one of these great UK counties for your holidays. With so many great things to do and see in your own backyard, there’s no reason to spend money getting away to the continent or abroad when you can pack up your motorhome and explore all the wonders Britain has to offer.
