Our green and pleasant land
Vast striking landscapes, thousands of miles of coastline, vibrant cities, picturesque villages, historic and modern culture and a food revolution that never stops gathering pace. All this doesn’t begin to scratch the surface of our wonderful nation. From the sandy beaches of Cornwall, to the majestic mountains of the Highlands, from the fortress castles of Wales to the green glens of Northern Ireland, there’s little wonder that this is one of the most visited countries in the world. It’s an island of ten national parks – each one so different from the next; 46 areas of outstanding natural beauty and a land of legends, folklore and scenery that has inspired artists and poets for centuries. And it’s all on our doorstep. Tread ancient routes, zip wire through forests, play a links course, paddle board to lunch, explore historic gardens, learn to surf, sample local produce, or picnic on a secluded beach. The possibilities really are limitless. We love discovering little places throughout the UK and are very excited about our portfolio of luxurious retreats. In beautiful surroundings, with exceptional teams of people to look after you, and food that will make you want to stay longer, each one is a haven for couples and families alike.
