Recent United Kingdom reviews

  • A delightful stay

    "We stayed 4 nights and had a delightful time. As others have noted, the cottage is very well decorated, very charming, and has an unbeatable middle of town location. Penny, the owner, is very responsive and very good to work with. We noted the somewhat negative review which stated that there were some rough spots that needed updating, and we discussed these with Penny before deciding to rent. Yes, there are a few cosmetic improvements that Penny is intending on making now, in the off season, and I have to say these few cosmetic issues in no way impacted our time, we had a wonderful time staying in the cottage."

  • Best Kept Secret

    "The Montana Guest Home is absolutely fantastic! It exceeded out expectations in so many ways. The natural beauty, the isolation, the East Rosebud Creek, the wildlife, the hiking and the accommodations were second to none. We can't wait to go back!"

    "The unit was clean, well stocked (we wanted for nothing!) and there is plenty to do in the area. The stream out the back was delightful."

  • Joy at Sunswept

    "Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Charming gardens. Around every corner a wonderful piece of art! Yes, it could be a description of the town of Carmel By The Sea but I'm talking about this wonderful home, Sunswept! I have rented in Carmel during the month of July for the last 14 years and this year I found a picture perfect house. I sat in the front garden and fed a lovely little blue bird from my hand and on the back deck I watched glorious sunsets. Life long friends joined me for the month in this happy, joyful house. We prepared meals in a kitchen with a magnicent view and ended long days laying in bed lucky to hear the crash of the ocean. It's a house anyone would love and want to spend time with family and friends......just don't plan on being here July 2015 because I sure hope I'll be back feeding my little feathered friend as the sun rises."

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.
