Why the British countryside should be your permanent vacation destination
There is a lot of beauty squeezed into this small island. The UK is bursting at the seams with beautiful locales and dream destinations. It’s no wonder more Brits have been vacationing closer to home over the years. Now, 60% of us prefer staying here for our holidays.
Is it any wonder why? The beautiful rolling hills of the countryside. The bustling cities filled with history and culture. The weird and wonderful wildlife. No matter where you turn, you can always find something to love.
If a vacation to you means uninterrupted peace and relaxation, you can’t do better than the British countryside. Up and down the nation, quaint hotels put you in the heart of the idyllic, verdant hills. Here’s why we think the British countryside should be your permanent holiday destination.
#1 – It’s only a stone’s throw away
The UK is so densely packed. This might have something to do with our long and illustrious history. The result is a country filled to the brim with interesting and unique locales. And thanks to our fantastic rail system and road network, reaching these places is a breeze. You are never more than a couple of hours away from somewhere breathtaking or fascinating.
When holidaying in the UK, you don’t have to travel far to find a wholly new and different experience. Head out into the country and you will quickly find somewhere worth visiting. And with these locations practically on your doorstep, you’re always close to your next vacation.
#2 – The sights and sounds
As we mentioned before, this country is filled with history and culture. Plenty of this can be found in the British countryside. Quaint villages, such as Meltham on the outskirts of Huddersfield, have that quintessential British character.
From there, you are only a step away from the awe-inspiring sights of the Yorkshire Dales or the always-popular Lake District. These locales are home to some of the most beautiful vistas this country has to offer. And if you head to the coast, you are assured an equally breath-taking time.
Much can also be said of the peace and quiet you have. It is the textbook definition of idyllic and a literal breath of fresh air. There are many health benefits from fresh air, including improved blood pressure and heart rate, a strengthened immune system, and reduced obesity rates. And we would be remiss to mention our wildlife. Red squirrels, badgers, deer, puffins, and even whales can be seen if you time it right.
#3 – The best of British
Some of the most bizarrely unique British traditions can be found in the country. Why not take in some Morris dancing? Or head to Scotland for the caber toss? Maybe even take in the manic flurry that is the Cooper’s Hill Cheese Roll? You can’t deny us Brits know how to have a good time!
If that isn’t quite your speed, take it at your own pace. Go for a walk along our rolling hills or take a canal-side stroll. Visit one of our many heritage sites or museums. Or simply put your feet up. It’s your holiday – who says you have to do anything at all? And then you have the delicious hearty meals we are so famous for. Mouth-watering dishes made from locally sourced ingredients will always be a hit.
All of this crammed into one tiny, British-Isles-shaped package. And it’s all there waiting for you to unpack. Hopefully, you now see why so many choose to stay closer to home when it comes to their vacation. There’s just so much to see and do – make sure you don’t miss out.
At TEVA Resorts, we have hand-picked some of the most beautiful and historic locations for our collection of hotels. Take Durker Roods, for example.
