English Tourism Week
The very place that we call home can be the place that we forget to explore so as English Tourism Week starts (25th March to 2nd April) we thought we’d take a look at what we can enjoy in England’s green and pleasant Land.
England is home to some amazing cities and with London, not surprisingly topping the polls as the most visited city, it is pleasing to see our regional delights such as Bath, Leeds, Cambridge, York, Chester, Cambridge, Oxford and Liverpool all riding high in the tourism stakes. A city break in the UK is a great way to exchange the hustle and bustle of everyday life for the atmospheric business of culture, theatre, fun and culinary delights associated with many of the England’s popular cities.
History and Hills
Many of our developments lie within an hour’s drive of beautiful open countryside – our Chene Hall development in Harrogate lies on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park – a scenic delight of rolling hills, quaint pubs and more Michelin starred restaurants than anywhere else in the UK than London. Meanwhile our Chestnut Grove development lies close to both the home of Shakespeare at Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick with its magnificent castle, two of the West Midlands most visited attractions.
Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty
There are 34 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB’s) scattered across England many of which are easily accessed from our developments. Homes near Bracklesham Bay at Bader Heights lie close to Chichester Harbour and the South Downs whilst The Potteries development at Lancaster sits on the fringes of Forest of Bowland one of the least known of our AONB’s.
We have found that the location of our homes really does make a difference to our customer’s buying decisions and this is attributed to their ability to be able to enjoy not just their home but their life experience. Being able to pop out for a few hours to play with the children, walk the dog, visit a local tourist attraction or enjoy lunch, dinner or drinks at an acclaimed and favourite pub or restaurant makes an impact on decision making and to the quality of life thereafter.
