Want to Enjoy the Great British Outdoors? Consider These Hidden Gems!

The great outdoors has so much to offer, but it’s not always easy to choose which UK countryside destination you should head to next. If you’ve been the most obvious places like Dorset and the Lake District, you’re probably looking for something a little different, and that’s what we’re here to help you with today. With so many options out there, there’s no need to feel confined in your options. Here are some of the places you should head to next if you want to enjoy the Great British outdoors.

If you're someone who loves walking in the country, Dunkeld is a perfect spot. There are lots of fantastic walking routes, the landscapes are stunning and walking along the River Tay is one of the best country walking experiences you can have. It’s one of the spots in Scotland that is really rising in popularity right now, so be sure to visit it before everyone finds out about it.

The Exmoor Coast
Between the valleys and down to the sea, you can’t ask for much more on the Exmoor Coast. It’s the kind of place that’s got it all in terms of rural destinations. The old steam train is a particular treat, and when you take a walk down to the coast, you will see why so many people love walking in this part of the world. It’s simply beautiful and you will enjoy making the most of its natural splendour.

Rutland is located in the East Midlands, and many people from outside the area have no idea of how beautiful the region is. In particular, you’ll want to Rutland Water, which is home to a stunning nature reserve. You’ll find all sorts of great Rutland Water accommodation in that area so this is the place to stay if you want to make the most of the picturesque countryside here.

Romney Marsh
Here, you’ll find lots of small villages clustered together, so if that’s the kind of setting you’re looking for, Rodney Marsh is where you should head to. There’s not much to do in terms of bigger town attractions, but that’s not what this place is about at all. There’s plenty to explore in terms of rural beauty, so make the most of it when you head to Rodney Marsh in Kent.

The Tamar River is certainly one of the key highlights in Dartmoor. If you enjoy fishing or simply idling along on a boat, this is the place to do it. But Dartmoor is also a great place for cyclists and walkers too. It’s the kind of place that can throw anything at you in terms of the weather, and many people actually like that unpredictability about Dartmoor.

As you can see, there are plenty of rural highlights to explore in the UK, so even if you think you’ve seen them all before, there’s almost certainly still more to see and explore. Hopefully these places have given you some inspiration and helped you decide where you want to head next.
