Cotswolds bed and breakfast near Chipping Norton, England

We had a nice, quiet break at the straw bale cabin. The cabin was well equipped with cooking ingredients, utensils, crockery etc so we were able to spend time preparing nice meals before curling up and reading or listening to our little radio. With the veranda, pond , apple trees, allotment and surrounding farm land we felt close to nature. (more)Michele Rogers
Although it was a short break, we thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay and felt refreshed both physically and psychologically for it. (more)Carolyn Moore

We were intrigued to stay in a house made of straw bales and to see how recycling/ reuse can be put into practice and good effect.- we were not disappointed! We found the photo albums showing the building of the house really interesting. (more)C Sharkey

A very well run & organized 'supported' cycling holiday. We were taken from A to B, pointed in the right direction, fed and watered and put to bed at night. Also lots of encouragement thrown in when we needed that extra boost. (more)Ingrid Struik
A great escape from London and have booked again already! (more)Helena Posnett

I think reaching the end of the Wall. Although bittersweet, it marked an achievement for all of us...the organization of rooms, food, transport, etc was excellent and the guide's knowledge put me completely at ease. (more)Kelly Malone
Most memorable was walking Hadrians Wall with a very knowledgeable guide and great company. It was easy to imagine the Romans marching up and down, defending their empire from the marauding tribes. (more)Jill Marquis
From £495 - £850 excluding flights
Coast to coast self guided cycling holiday in England
Memorable parts? Hmmm, so many good bits. Seeing such diverse parts of the country with such different landscapes - all within 140 miles; having the route to ourselves most of the time; meeting the challenge of a three-day cycle with quite a lot of big hills; meeting lovely people; great B&Bs etc. I will definitely remember the torrential rain... Tips? If you have the time, consider taking an extra day. We underestimated how long it would take to complete each day's ride and would... (more)Biddy Walcot
From £300 - £380 excluding flights
Devon eco lodge accommodation, England
Maggie, joint owner with Ian, took us on a walk through the wet grassland area of special scientific interest. Not only was it interesting from an ecological point of view it was such fun. (more)Jenny Brace
We'll remember the brightness of the stars on clear nights with no light pollution, watching bats flying around our lodge at sunset, waking late because it was so quiet and comfortable and the blackout blinds were so good, the ruby red cows really glowing like rubies at sunset, being content to just potter around the farm in the sunshine without getting bored. (more)Sue Stanwell
The most memorable part were the ...scones on arrival (they were the best I have ever tasted!), walking around the beautiful country side and the farm... (more)Jenna du Plessis

Tree climbing on the Isle of Wight
Tree climbing with Paul and Abigail was an absolutely great experience. Paul's knowledge of all things 'tree' and his clear love of the trees and the environment was naturally conveyed to us all. (more)Amelia Shepherd
Suspended 50ft in the air, enjoying the beautiful panoramic views framed by branches and leaves and then plucking up the courage to peer beneath was the most memorable part... pretty scary at first but fantastically liberating after the initial surprise. (more)Lani Watson
The most memorable part was hanging upside down from half way up the tree. This took me out of my comfort zone and it was a real push for me to be brave, let go of the ropes and trust the harness. (more)Holly Foat

Lake District shepherds hut accommodation, England
Memorable parts? We had a pair of ducks visit us each night around 7 p.m. I thought they'd leave when we didn't feed them but instead, they hunkered down and kept us company as we barbequed our dinner and ate. It sounds a little thing, but it's rare to be so close to nature and it was a highlight of our trip. Tips? While the hut is a perfectly formed retreat, make sure you have someplace to go if it rains. We had great weather so the outdoors made an extra room for us but in the... (more)Kristine Buchanan
