England offers a wealth of fine activities throughout the year. For countryside visits, the summer season brings the best weather. Accommodation rates generally rise from July to August, and school holidays mean that attractions and beauty spots become crowded. This is particularly true of beaches and national parks. You can consider June and September to avoid the worst of this. Shoulder seasons in spring and autumn can be just as delightful. While the weather is often good, it is unpredictable, so be sure to pack accordingly. That means waterproofs and sun cream, just in case. Winter is generally wet and cold with snow at higher elevations, particularly up north. The countryside can be captivating in the winter frost, but wrap up warm and prepare for visits to more lively towns. Very remote areas and tourist towns see reduced hours at attractions and restaurants over winter.
England’s green and pleasant land has something for all. Its national parks make delightful days out for families, and you’ll find a wide wealth of manor houses to explore. If you’re staying predominantly in the countryside with children, it’s best to pick a locale family-friendly attractions. You’ll find everything from first-rate country life experiences, zoos and animal parks, as well as major theme parks. As for groups and friends, the countryside was made for walking. More adventurous areas of England, like the Pennines, provide mountains (or fells) and rock climbing. Just about every corner of the country features national trails that are well-plotted for a gentle stroll. This adds to the romanticism of the countryside. What’s more, retreating to your country cottage hotel, you’ll be greeted by the perfect evening meal. English country restaurants are among the most romantic and prized – so you can always expect a fine candle-lit meal.
