Scottish Borders

The rolling green hills of the Scottish Borders have much to offer; a fine salmon river, historic abbeys and castles, extensive views from the hill tops, fresh air, peace and quiet. This is a green and fertile region of Scotland, the towns and villages are as attractive as their surroundings and the hedgerows are glorious. Salmon and trout leap in the Tweed, grouse call on the high moors and the sheep graze on the hillsides. More

Wild flowers grow in abundance on the sand dunes, wading birds comb the strand. Dramatic ruins of medieval castles stand tall on the skyline, and Lindisfarne on Holy Island, just off the Northumberland Coast, was one of the foremost ‘cradles of Christianity. More

Hadrian's Wall Country

The moors and dales of Northumberland and Durham have rightly been referred to as ‘England’s last wilderness’. The landscape is a mixture of wide open grassland, heather covered moorland and lush green dales. Hadrian’s Wall marches across the hills taking in its stride a succession of craggy outcrops and undulating hills. Hadrian’s Wall and the Roman forts and settlements associated with it are designated a World Heritage Site, whilst Hadrian’s Wall Path, which follows the Wall from coast to coast across the north of England, is a National Trail. More

Yorkshire's Limestone Dales

Nestling in the shadows of the mighty ‘Three Peaks’ of Ingleborough, Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside lie Yorkshire’s limestone dales. The gleaming white of the weathered limestone scars and 'pavements', laid bare by the last Ice Age, add light to a rugged landscape, whilst the sweet springy turf provides the perfect walking surface. More

River Thames

The Thames is a river of great variety. From its source in the Cotswolds to the city of London every bend in the river brings a new view. Birdlife and bank-side flora abound and the passing narrow boats add interest without detracting from the peace and beauty of the river. Small riverside hamlets, locks with their attractive keeper's cottages, waterside inns and the occasional ornate bridge all add to the unique atmosphere which can only be experienced whilst walking the banks of England's most famous river. More

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds fulfils most people’s idea of a ‘typical’ English landscape, but the beauty of the Cotswolds is unique in that much of it is man made. The distinctively picturesque villages are typified by churches, manor houses, cottages and tithe barns all constructed from beautiful, mellow, honey-coloured stone.  More
