Whether you fancy a large city, a countryside break, or something that offers a little of both, here are 5 ideas to get you started. All are easily accessible by car, train, or both.

This little-known corner of the Scottish Highlands has mountains, moorlands, woodlands, and beautiful seascapes. Morvern Peninsula is ideal for walkers and nature-lovers. Golden eagles and pine martins are just some of the wildlife you might see here.
2. Norfolk Broads
A trip along some of the 125 miles of navigable waterways in the Broads gives you a real feel for the place. You might also spot some of its avian residents, such as bearded tits or even the elusive bittern. If you prefer dry land, visit the beautiful village of Ranworth.
Visit the cathedral, explore Jane Austen's one-time home, or follow in the footsteps of Keats on a walk across the water meadows in England's ancient capital. St Catherine's Hill and St Giles' Hill both afford excellent views across the city.
