Our Favourite Summer Drives

Derbyshire Hills  Travelling through the Derbyshire Hills can offer breathtaking views like no other. For as far as the eyes can see stretches miles of rolling hills and secluded rural villages with quaint tearooms and unique attractions. Nestled in the hills of Castleton you will find Speedwell Caverns, natural caverns that you can travel into via a guided boat tour. It is worth travelling down to Castleton just for the views. Offering Games of Thrones-esque landscapes, the interlocking hills and rolling green pastures make for some of the most beautiful natural formations imaginable.   Northumberland/the North Sea coastline Head towards Bamburgh castle an inhabited castle on a volcanic outreach near the Northumbrian National Park to find stunning views of the North Sea. If that wasn’t enough, heading away from the one time seat of the kings of Northumbria to discover the swaying long grasses of Northumberland’s colourful countryside. Follow the coastline through the tiny coastal town of Seahouses to experience the sea like never before. With white sand dunes that dip into the beautiful blue water this is a journey for sea lovers. Not far from the Scottish border the North Sea coastline is the ideal place to take a picnic and watch world pass-by. Be sure to take a blanket, it can get choppy at times!   Ribblehead Viaduct Situated within the winding Yorkshire Dales the man-made Ribble Viaduct is most recently known for its appearance in the Harry Potter films. Listed as a Scheduled Ancient Monument, the 400 metre construction dates back to the 1870’s. Cradled in the natural beauty of the Dales, the B6255 is nothing short of awe magical.   Lands End to St Ives Hugging the unspoilt Cornish coast, the A30 and B3306 offer some of the most spectacular views available from the Cornish Cape to Sennen Cove and Whitesand Beach.
