Explore the UK and Ireland
Mild weather, mad locals, funny television programmes and ages of bloodthirsty history: that’s Britain in a nutty nutshell. Discover the land that produced both David Attenborough and the Daleks, where cities are buzzing, the beaches are plentiful, and the countryside is both quintessential and quirky
It’s the land of Dr Who and Harry Potter, tea, tradition and tolerance. England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland make up these patchwork islands. Britain might be leaving the EU, but it still welcomes visitors with open arms, a cup of tea, and a nice sit down. You can surf with seals and hike over heather clad moors. If the weather turns and you want to stay indoors, the Royal Family have left a legacy of castles and mansions. Traditional Britain has charmed the world, but are you prepared to see what it’s really like? Book flights and holidays.

It’s time to take a quintessentially English break at the Thyme in the Cotswolds. Stay in one of the charming rooms at the Lodge, just next to the Meadow Spa and spring water pool. Wander through the olive groves, play a game of boules and visit the Swan pub – this countryside retreat is a must-visit hamlet.
