We are blessed with some truly stunning locations on our fair shores and, not wanting to tempt fate, some equally glorious weather at certain times of the year (please don’t blame me if it rains whilst you’re away), so long as we are prepared to break from tradition, something we have made a conscious decision to do this summer.
It’s not that we have anything against the Lake District, Peak District, Cornwall and Cairngorms, or any of the other well-known and visited destinations in the UK for that matter, only that we are determined to discover some new, hitherto hidden gems. It’s an ethos born from lockdown, where, with no other choice but to delve deep into our local area, we have unearthed some magical places within a few miles of our front door. Only now we want to apply that same desire to find new and interesting places on a bigger, nationwide scale.
I dare say there will be a time in the future where we are in a hurry to get back across to Europe, given our love of France and Spain, but in the meantime we intend on making the most of the situation and create new memories in new locations, of which all of these are high on our ‘to visit’ list.
