Deserted places in Britain

Peaceful places in Britain

July 19th, 2009

Here’s a list of five places to avoid the throngs in Britain. Deserted beaches, lonely hills, “undiscovered”  paths, quiet corners of this often overcrowded island. They recommend:

  • The Rhinogs (“What I love about the Rhinogs is that you can walk among them and there are hardly any reminders of the modern world,”)
  • Forest of Wyre (“Once a medieval hunting forest, there are waymarked walking trails, horse and cycle paths, and two off-road family bike trails.”
  • Shopshire (As beautiful as the Cotswolds without the crowds)
  • Ennerdale Water (“forested hills, clear blue water and vast skies, and the countryside is latticed with cycling and walking routes”)
  • Ardnamurchan Peninsula (“stunningly beautiful beach at Sanna Bay”)
  • Bamburgh (“stunning white-sand beaches”)
