The Best place to visit the UK is the "Isle of Wight".The Isle of Wight has the considerable bonus of being reached via ferry, and therefore very nearly counting as a trip 'abroad'. Beach lovers get vast stretches of sandy coast, plus rocky beaches ideal for paddling, and the entire island has a lovely old-fashioned feel.

The wonderful thing about the UK is that there is so much diversity in such a compact area.
Since Cobblette was born, we've taken to visiting places that were previously gaps in our map of the UK - North Yorks moors stand out as somewhere that had previously escaped my attention.

Northumberland has been mentioned and is one of my favourite places and very quiet for the most part.
Pembrokeshire, North Devon, Powys & most of Scotland are all pretty quiet really and all have amazing places to visit Smile

Depends what you're looking for. The only things we don't really offer are proper skiing or consistently warm beach holidays.

I canít think of anything other than woodland as appealing in the UK. Golf courses and London would be my targets.

Really? Sounds like you need to take your home counties blinkers off.

There are some incredibly breathtaking places in the UK, but you'll have to figure that out for yourself.

yes - with the added danger of thinking so much you're abroad that, in an idle moment when pulling out of a car park, driving down the road on the wrong side until I see an oncoming car and then realizing it was me that was driving in the wrong lane and not them. big oops moment!

It would be a start.

Cornwall...meh. Wales is okay, but itís the forested valleys I like. Edinburgh is nice for a city break but thatís it.

Lake District, Exmoor, quite nice.

During the summer my teenage Daughter is attending a performing arts holiday programme at university of surrey in Guildford. As a family we are looking to stay in a cottage or similar for 7 days in a village on the outskirts of town. Does anybody know the area? It certainly looks to have great running trails Very Happy . Thank you


Its not really a holiday area - the houses are too expensive.

You might find places down in the Meon Valley area to the south which isnt too far away.

Village of Compton is just outside Guildford. Close to Watts Gallery and Chapel, Loseley House and the North Downs Way for trails.
