England is now better known for vibrant cities with great nightlife and attractions, contrasted with green and pleasant countryside. It's said that Ireland, once visited, is never forgotten; the landscape has a mythic resonance, the country's history is almost tangible, and its people seem put on earth expressly to restore faith in humanity. Wales is just what you picture it to be: rolling moorlands, tongue-twisting place names, Rugby Union... But also fantastic walking, cycling, fishing, water and adventure sports as well as some fine festivals. Scotland's' people are feisty, opinionated and fiercely loyal. The countryside is a wild, beautiful tumble of raw mountain peaks and deep glassy lakes.

THE ENGLISH TAKE THEIR “RIGHT TO ROAM” seriously. Well-worn public footpaths—some have been in use for more than 1000 years!—run beside busy roads, along scenic cliffs, through gates and over stiles in farmers’ fields. Signposts ... Read more >

ANNEXE HIDEAWAY AIRBnB IN TRURO isn’t as central as we could wish but it is far and away one of the best—trig, tidy with all the mod/cons and just a quick shot to the A30 and the rugged scenery, ancient sites and oh-so-cute villages that ... Read more >
