Country Escapes in the UK

By Livingthedreamrtw @livingdreamrtw
Country Escapes in the UK From top to bottom, coast to coast, there are great stretches of naturally wild countryside to enjoy in the UK. From days spent trekking through the untamed beauty of the Trossachs in Scotland, to a weekend of meandering through the rolling hills of the English Lake District, there is no end to the fun you can have in Britain’s natural spaces.  The only question you have to answer is this: Where do I go?
The following are three great places to check out the next time you visit the United Kingdom! (Photo "Trossach Mountains" by amypalko)
Lake District, Cumbria
Country Escapes in the UK The charms of the English Lake District in the county of Cumbria are no secret. This is one of England’s most beautiful and most visited areas, drawing over 15 million visitors a year. Despite the number of visitors that the area gets each year it is still possible to have a quiet and relaxed holiday where you can get away from it all. Accommodation options in the Lake District are endless, but staying in a secluded Lake District holiday cottage is the best way to enjoy all the area has to offer. With walks right from the front door and quaint villages just a short trip away, a Lake District holiday will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.  (Photo "Lake District" by Ennor)
The Trossachs, Scotland
The scenic beauty of the Trossachs region of Scotland has been popular since it was immortalized by Sir Walter Scott’s 1810 poem, The Lady of the Lake. With glistening lochs and wooded glens it’s no surprise that the area has been immortalized by romantic writers and poets for centuries. Some of the most popular activities in the area include trail walking, visiting the magical island of Inchcailloch, wondering through the Kilmun Arboretum, and fishing in the many local lakes and rivers.
Snowdonia, Wales
Country Escapes in the UK The Snowdonia area of Wales is one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the UK. Here towering mountains are home to the hardiest of sheep, who feast on the wild plants and flowers that carpet the mountain glens. Mount Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales, and one of the peaks that make up the famous Three Peaks Challenge, offering a test of physical endurance to all that try it. Though this is a mountain climber’s paradise, there is a lot for anyone and everyone to participate in. There are 1479 miles of public footpaths within the park, many of which are fully accessible, or simply spend your days exploring the beautiful local villages. (Photo "Snowdonia" by Matthew Verso)
