Country Walks in the UK

As the title of this website suggests, most of our content is based around walks in the Peak District area of the UK.  A change of scenery is always good and there are many other areas of outstanding natural beauty across the country – far too vast to cover comprehensively.

Here we feature a selection of country walks in the UK that aren’t in the Peak District.  Walks in East Yorkshire and North Yorkshire are further North than the South Yorkshire and Midlands region. However they’re not too inaccessible for a day out.
