Summer transforms the United Kingdom into a veritable playground for outdoor enthusiasts. English gardens and country parks blossom in the warmer weather and birds flit from tree to blooming tree while Bristol’s residents and visitors stroll in the shade of tree-lined avenues. Intrepid travelers looking for country quiet hop in their minis and leave the urban crowds behind in favor of a swim in a pond and star-studded skies. Daytime brings sparkle to the Lake District’s waters, where a picnic can be enjoyed on the verdant shores. The coastlines of the North Sea, the Celtic Sea, and the English Channel are most inviting in the hot season, when weary coastal hikers can plunge into their cooling waters. Don’t take our word for it. Book a bayside cottage or a country cabin in the United Kingdom for your next summer holiday.
