  • Beautiful Cozy House in Knowlton

    "Lovely, cozy house to stay in and explore beautiful Knowlton! Walking distance to the village, full kitchen to do your own cooking, a great restaurant right next door! Close to ski hills, Spas, Antique stores & more. We felt right at home in Le Chien Noir as 2 couples away for a weekend. We'll be back! Thanks to our gracious host!"

  • Best condo in Royal West Indies!

    "This condo was just perfect, and the owners were great to work with. This one is a favorite of many, so book early, you won't be disappointed. Only one building (building 1), this one, is truly oceanfront. The other one, building 2, is oceanview. Bldgs 3 and up are behind bldgs. 1 and 2, further from the beach. BIG difference! You cannot get this condo through the resort...you've got an 'in' by booking directly with the owners here. The location is perfectly located in the middle section of Grace Bay, it's next door to Club Med, which actually, is nice because you can buy a 'day pass' for only $55 and gets you unlimited drinks, food, entertainment, and activities (including boat excursions like snorkeling) INCLUDED! We did rent a car because we wanted to explore the island. Parking is easy, the front parking lot or there is a side parking lot by the restaurant, for using any time the restaurant is open. The furnishings are nice, and the patio is very large and covered...perfect for meals or just gazing. The king bed is super-comfy and there are plenty of utensils and other necessities provided. One I had not planned on was seeing a large dispenser in the shower for shampoo, conditioner, and body soap...not just those mini bottles. I probably packed an extra 3 lbs in products that I could have left home, so that was neat to see. Sept is the off-season, so we could get into all the most popular restaurants easily. Beach and water were perfect. You will love, love, love this condo!"

  • Value for money

    "The beds were comfortable, the house well looked after and tastefully decorated. A five minute walk got me to the seaside and ten minutes down town. The kitchen had minimal counter space and was awkwardly set up. We only made coffee and boiled eggs so this was not a problem. The owners were pleasant to deal with. I would stay here again under similar circumstances (limited cooking)."

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.
