Buckinghamshire is one of the best UK holiday destinations for countryside pursuits, and the little town of Beaconsfield is well worth a visit. The picturesque old town is filled with quaint little shops and pubs to while away the hours and an entertaining weekly market. Pretend to be a giant at the Bekonscot Model Village, the world’s oldest and original model village, a great day out for all the family. Book a cosy B&B and explore the county of Buckinghamshire.
Kent’s most famous beach, Margate, is the epitome of uber-cool seaside kitsch. Traditional beach-town charm, the world-class Turner art gallery, trendy café culture and tempting vintage shops.

The scenic fishing village of Staithes is one of the best UK holiday destinations to enjoy coast and country. Stay in a B&B Staithes, and one day you’re combing along the rocky foreshore, and the next, you can be hiking the Cleveland Way in the breathtaking North Yorkshire Moors. But, of course, you could just relax down by the harbour with a pint or two! Then stumble down the cobbled streets to your cosy B&B Staithes for a well-deserved rest.
When you first see this area of unspoilt, dramatic scenery, it feels like you’ve stumbled across Britain’s best-kept secret.

Take your time and explore the landscape, from the misty heather-covered moorland and the empty glens to the striking white-sands of the seashore.
