Walkers are amongst the groups of people who like to get out and about into the countryside despite the weather. Properly equipped, they see landscapes in their lush summer finery and also hoary with white frost. The British countryside is stunning all year round. Who cannot fail to appreciate the glowing colours of autumn leaves and indeed a good many people book a short break for the sole purpose of visiting an arboretum to admire trees in their autumn finery.
Short breaks can be ideal if you want to spend a few days exploring an area or perhaps want to take a long weekend break. From time to time we all need to get away from it all and focus on relaxing and enjoying ourselves.
These mini-holidays can be a good option as well if your budget is a little tight and you can only afford to go away for a short time or don't have that much annual leave available to use.
