In the UK, we’re blessed with an abundance of countryside. From rolling hills and trickling streams to leafy woodlands and neatly tended fields, the great outdoors is not something we should take for granted. Here you’ll find all the ways you can make the most of the British countryside (as well as some natural gems further afield), whether that be through long walks with your canine companions, scouting out the best hotels for an urban getaway or finding the best pair of wellies to navigate it all.
Alongside our countryside style edits, where we break down the best coats, boots and umbrellas to get you through a trip outdoors, we’ve put together some of our favourite seasonal activities that you can enjoy out in the country. Locals can check out our area guides for some homely inspiration (and even make their home look the part with our interiors guides), and those looking for a weekend break can browse through our pick of the best places to stay and recharge.
