Now that the winter days are behind us, you can start thinking about booking your spring break! Our Days Inn hotels have 15 fantastic locations around the UK, and many are close to some of the country's stunning national parks. Why not book into one of these three superb locations and experience the natural beauty of our countryside this spring:
Stay with us in Kendal and you are only a short drive from one of the UK's most popular spaces, The Lake District. This is without a doubt the most popular National Park in the UK and with very good reason. You will struggle to find such good scenery, making it a hit with walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers and anyone else who loves the countryside. The spring flowers add an extra splash of colour to the fells and picture postcard villages that dot the landscape. If you prefer to take things more easily, take a steamer ride on Ullswater, explore the streets of Ambleside and Windermere or visit Wordsworth’s house in Grasmere; there will certainly be plenty of daffodils to see.
The Chesterfield Days Inn is ideally located for anyone who wishes to visit the Peak District. Although popular throughout the year with outdoor enthusiasts, England’s first National park has more to offer besides miles of footpaths and bridleways. Carsington Water is the place to go if you wish to try your hand at sailing, kayaking or another water sport. The historic market town of Bakewell is a favourite with visitors, not only keen to sample its world famous tart and pudding, but to browse through its many unique shops. Sit by the river that runs through the town and watch the wildfowl, with lots of ducklings to spot.
When you stay in Southampton, the New Forest is closer than you think. Well-known for its wild ponies, you can spend a day taking in all that this National Park has to offer. Covering 15 miles of coastline, you can enjoy a coastal walk before heading inland to discover some of the area’s quaint towns and villages. Brockenhurst is surrounded by some of the most delightful scenery in the New Forest, but Burley, Fordingbridge and Lyndhurst are also picturesque. Enjoy a cream tea before you head back to spend the night with Days Inn.
