  • Unbelievable Stay

    "We walked in and my daughter and I felt right at home. We entered the condo and the first thing you notice was the freshness of the place. Typically when you walk into a condo there's always a musty scent, not here!!! The owners did a fantastic job with the decor and basically had everything there you needed. Beds were comfortable, TV's, internet all worked without issues. The best part of this was the Owner Linda, she was wonderful to work with. She answered all questions and communicated quickly. If you pass this place up you are missing out. Rent with confidence because this place is A1 Thanks again & we'll be back for sure....."

  • Perfect Country Retreat

    "This home is roomy, fully equipped, clean, the beds are very comfortable, and the country setting is quiet and peaceful. It is perfect for family gatherings or a quiet getaway when you just need to slow down. We enjoyed the tractor traffic, Amish buggies, evening fires, walks through the fields, and saw many kinds of birds and deer. It's very close to local wineries (highly recommend hitting a few of these), Lake Erie, and shopping. There was even fast cable internet, which we all appreciated. We highly recommend this home, can't wait to return!"

Top United Kingdom Travel Attractions and Activities

The United Kingdom is made up of four separate countries -- England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Each of these regions has its own wealth of attractions but there are a few things that they have in common. Throughout the UK, you will find ancient castles and ruins of former fortresses. Each of these has its own unique tale to tell. Many of the castles are still in use today, either as royal residences, museums or boutique hotels. Scotland and Northern Ireland in particular are known for their impressive and ancient castles.

The UK is a popular golfing destination; Northern Ireland and Scotland rank as two of the best golfing destinations. There is the famous St. Andrews Golf Course in Scotland where leading PGA tournaments are played each year. There are literally hundreds of other golf courses to choose from. In the cities, such as London and Edinburgh, there are many historical sites to visit. As the nation's capital London has a rich and detailed history.

There is also the famous museum of waxworks called Madam Tussaud's where you can see famous personalities from around the world immortalized in wax.

Seasons to Visit the United Kingdom

The weather of the United Kingdom is characterized by rain, and a lot of it. The advantage of this is that the rural landscapes are perpetually green and very scenic. Winters are generally quite long and in the central and northern regions, snowfalls are not uncommon. Winter starts from mid-October and generally lasts until the end of April. Spring and autumn are usually quite short-lived. Summer is from June to August and daytime temperatures can get quite hot. On a sunny day, especially if it is on the weekend, you will see many of the locals out and about making the most of the good weather. Summertime is traditionally the peak tourist season and major tourist attractions can get very crowded. If you are willing to travel out of season and possible put up with a little bit of bad weather, you can benefit from some great travel deals.
