Discovering England’s Natural Side

Some of England’s most popular attractions are in its stunning metropolises, but the countryside is equally worthy of exploration and the Guardian has some suggestions for visitors.
Next to scenic walking and cycling routes, a stay in Jackson’s Cabin in East Sussex is idyllic and within reach of the seaside.
“The large one-bedroom cabin has smart modern interiors but plenty of rustic character (there’s a wood-burning stove, a partially timber-clad bathroom and original artwork on the walls; the owner is an artist and also runs painting holidays),” writes Rhiannon Batten for the Guardian.
It’s bookable through Airbnb.
For the gallopers out there, Batten suggests The Gathering.
“The five tents at this new Peak District glampsite come with Hypnos mattresses, merino wool blankets, hot water bottles, wood-fired stoves, roll-top baths and such civilised extras as fresh croissants in the morning and deliveries of ice and lemon for evening drinks,” says Batten.
There are local walks, wildlife spotting and family-friendly activities during school holidays.
If the Isle of Wight is on your list, try Tom’s Eco Lodge, says Batten.
“The five safari tents at Tom’s Eco Lodge have long been popular with summer visitors but the addition of two log cabins and two glamping pods means you can now book a stay all year round,” says Batten.
