4. The New Forest
The New Forest contains a magnificent and almost unrivalled variety of scenery and has recently been designated the New Forest National Park. It was created as a royal forest by William the Conqueror in 1079 for the hunting of deer and in the 934 years since then, it has retained the “new” part of its name, although it is anything but.
The forest is famous for its abundance of ponies each pony, although privately owned, is allowed to roam free in its natural and original environment. As well as providing a visually remarkable and historic landscape, the New Forest has large areas of surviving lowland habitats which had been lost elsewhere in the country, including valley bogs, wet heaths, dry heaths and deciduous woodland.
Yorkshire's popularity just seems to grow and grow. Characterised by drystone walls, rolling hills, lonely farmhouses and bustling market towns, the UK's largest county has more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other region outside London. The Yorkshire Dales remains a fantastic outdoor arena for recreation, peaceful relaxation and a haven for wildlife.
2. The Scottish Highlands
Wild landscapes, fairy-tale castles, ancient traditions and legendary monsters define the captivating Scottish Highlands. The region may appear remote at first glance, but this beautiful part of Scotland is actually very accessible and certainly worth the journey.
This sparsely populated region contains some of Scotland’s most stunning scenery, including National Parks and vast areas of unspoilt wilderness. From the vibrant cities of Inverness and Invergordon to the Inner and Outer Hebrides, and the Isle of Skye, its a place that has something for everyone.
