Last Minute Cottages in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Last Minute Cottages in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are parts of the countryside which are considered to be of significant value to the landscape of a country. Such areas include the Isle of Wight and the Cotswolds in England, Anglesey and the Gower Peninsula in Wales and the Lagan Valley and Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland. Scotland does not have AONB’s and instead has National Scenic Areas.
Like National Parks, AONB’s are believed to be so important to their countries that they are protected and preserved for future generations. They are areas that you could stare at for a lifetime due to their overwhelming beauty, and that is why they are perfect places to stay in on a last minute break. Why not surprise your partner by whisking them away to an AONB in the last minute and staying in a cosy self-cottage away from it all?
The fact that there are AONB’s located all over Britain means that you will never be short of options. They are great places to go for walks and feature some fantastic farm shops where you can buy fresh, locally produced food to prepare in your cottage. And if you are too tired to cook following a day out exploring the area, then you need not worry, as there are superb gastropubs located nearby.
