Price search results for Four Corners Of The British Isles
Whilst it may not be the largest land mass, the British Isles comprises some of the most varied physical terrain you will find, not to mention the broad cultural spectrum which makes a visit to any area of Britain fascinating. This gift break is ideal for couples who like to explore new areas and learn about the different countries which make up the British Isles, giving them the opportunity to choose between Ireland, Scotland, Wales or the West Country as destinations for their overnight stay. Each of these places has plenty to recommend them, from their landscapes to the local food and attractions which give an insight into the local culture. Ireland is well known for its beautiful countryside but it is also home to some of the most spectacular natural phenomena, such as the Giant’s Causeway and the Mourne Mountains, as well as man-made wonders like the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge which visitors can use to cross from the mainland to Carrick Island. Scotland is famous for its whiskey distilleries and the variety of golf courses, but is also home to a network of lochs, including Loch Ness and Loch Lomond, which are home to a host of wildlife and offer spectacular views. The local fare includes traditional dishes such as haggis with neeps and tatties followed by clootie dumplings or cranachan. Wales may be known largely for its rolling valleys and male voice choirs, but is also home to fascinating historical sites such as Cardiff Castle, a number of old ironworks and a series of artificial limestone caves at Dewstow known as the grottoes. The West Country’s claims to fame include miles of beautiful beaches and of course the clotted cream teas which many visitors find addictive, but a trip to the area is also a perfect opportunity to visit the beautiful National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor, visit the National Seal Sanctuary or just wander round picturesque fishing villages enjoying the views. Each of the four corners of the British Isles has plenty to offer visitors, making them ideal destinations for any couple on an overnight break. This is a one night stay for two with English breakfast.
