Explore the stunning South West
Plan a visit to the South West of England and be sure to leave intending to return! The hospitality of the locals is just one of the many reasons visitors return time and time again. The South West offers a micro version of the many landscapes and countryside our whole country has to offer. From the rugged North Cornish Coast, to the soft sandy beaches of Devon and Dorset, to isolated moors and undulating hills, and if you fancy visiting a cosmopolitan city and sampling some superb food then you will certainly enjoy a break here. You can explore all that this wonderful region has to offer from a country or farm property with Farm Stay UK.
The patchwork of lush green fields or golden corn waiting to be cut; stunning blue seas lapping on to crisp clean sands; rugged moorland adorned with heather; quaint cobbled towns and fishing villages, or cities boasting a wealth of vibrant culture or fascinating history.
For those who like lazy days on the beach, there is something for all. Surfers can enjoy the rugged North coastline of the South West whilst those who prefer quieter seas can relax at a beach on the gentle, more placid Southern coast. Enjoy long walks along pebbled beaches or use the golden sands to build memorable sand castles! Visitors to Dorset can enjoy the world heritage coastline known as the Jurassic coast.
A wealth of National Trust properties are available to visit throughout the South West. Cotehele Estate is a fine example of a property steeped in History supported by beautiful country gardens. Step back in time at Arlington Court in North Devon where visitors can tour the estate in a horse and carriage or, visit Lacock Abbey situated in the beautiful Wiltshire village of Lacock.
For those interested in Culture and History, a holiday in the South West of England will not disappoint with visits to Bristol, Bath or Exeter. The Roman Baths are a must for any visitor and if you are heading to Wiltshire; Avebury and Stonehenge must also appear on the ‘To Do’ list.
There is so much to see and do from Literary Festivals in Budleigh Salterton, Archaeology at Cheddar Gorge, to Food Festivals including the Great Cornish Food Festival in Truro and the Newlyn Fish Festival.
So, as we said, why the South West? Well, why not?!
