Getting close to nature with a UK roadtrip
|   Wednesday, January 22, 2014
The UK might not be the biggest, warmest or sunniest place on earth but it's home to spectacular scenery, breathtaking natural attractions and an extensive variety of wildlife. Come rain or shine, there's a host of things to do, so why not dust off your waterproofs, pack your walking boots, grab your camera and enjoy a road trip to remember? Here are four places you just can't afford to miss.

Cheddar Gorge

Complete with jaw-dropping 450 foot cliffs, stunning caves and caverns decorated with stalactites, Cheddar Gorge is a must-see for anyone who appreciates nature at its best.
Located in the heart of Somerset, this world-famous Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a sight to behold and is great to explore by car or foot. What's more, if you fancy taking a holiday in this sensational part of the world, it might also be worth investing in a caravan from a retailer like eBay, so you can be at one with nature, without breaking the bank.

Peak District

Situated a stones throw from the city of Manchester, the Peak District is a rural haven speckled with quaint villages, cottage retreats and tumbling countryside. Ideal for cyclists, horse riders and ramblers alike, the Peak District is well known for its walking routes with the High Peak, Monsal, Thornhill and Tissington trail being among some of the most popular. You'll also find plenty of quaint towns including Bakewell and Buxton, as well as the former plague village of Eyam.

Dartmoor

An area of moorland in south Devon, Dartmoor is a sight to behold. Home to Dartmoor National Park – the largest area of open countryside in Southern England, which also features in Spielberg's blockbuster, Warhorse – this part of the world is an idyllic place for a road trip and is suitable for all ages. With many activities available to try including horse riding and mountain climbing, you won't be short of things to do and can really explore the great outdoors in style.

Penrith to Alston and Haydon

If you enjoy driving for pleasure and love nothing more than gliding through the countryside taking in the views this popular route could be right up your street. Named as β€˜One of the Greatest Drives in Britain' by the AA, the A686 runs from Penrith, through Alston and down onto the A69 just after the Haydon Bridge and offers spectacular scenery along the way. If you're feeling adventurous, you could also throw your bike in the boot and feel the wind in your hair as you sail along this stretch of road.
With so many glorious places to visit in the United Kingdom it's a good idea to create your very own itinerary and organise a road trip to remember – after all, these destinations are far too beautiful to miss.
