Stay At Cheap Hotels And Walk The British Countryside
In order to enjoy the best countryside walks that the UK has to offer, you don’t need to be a fitness fanatic or even a keen rambler. There’s walks to suit everyone from the laid-back stroll to the more challenging hike. Around the UK there are many cheap hotels where you can relax and recuperate in between your walk – you just need to find one that’s perfect for you.
Before you take your first step there are a few tips though!It’s a great idea to make a check list before you depart from the hotels that you’re staying in. Make sure you take an Ordnance Survey map of the area as you’ll quite literally be lost without it, even if you think you know the region well. Don’t rely on mobile phone maps either as mobile signals can be intermittent. Wear appropriate clothing for the walk and the weather, including comfortable walking footwear and a raincoat to keep you dry.
The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path in Wales is the place to head to if you’re looking for a real walk on the wild side. This place is full of charming and cheap hotels for you to rest those wares in. Jagged cliffs, picture perfect villages and tumultuous surf all await you on this walk. Although the walk can take a whopping two weeks to walk, you can complete it in less time if you take public transport.
For a surprise, head to Manchester. One of the city’s most famous areas is Alderley Edge, a short 12 miles jaunt from the centre itself. Rising up from the Cheshire plain, it has a distinct sandstone edge which was made for country walks. What is now a National Trust property; it was once used as copper mines and will give you a view to die for. You can head out early to the area if you stay at one of the many Manchester hotels.
