Many people visit specific areas of the UK and Ireland because of the fantastic opportunities there are to take part in unusual or unique activities that are not as easily experienced at home. Sports such as kayaking, rafting, canyoning and to some extent just walking are much more appreciated in amazing scenic surroundings, opposed to cities or towns where your adventurous or water sport activities are restricted to the indoor or the artificial. Scotland is renowned for being home to many unusual and exciting sports including some of the most beautiful walking trails, cycle routes, ski runs and much, much more. Take a relaxing hack across the stunning highlands and appreciate the amazing views from horse back, rent a boat and explore the mysterious coastal caves or try a high ropes course through the thick woodland. Wales is also a popular place to visit for anyone looking to stay active and enjoy the natural beauty of the country; fishing, climbing, caving and geocaching are just a few of the activities you can experience in Wales. Ireland and England also have plenty to offer in terms of brilliant settings and locations to enjoy outdoor pursuits and sporting fun, you just have to find the right spot for your sport and that's where we come in. Whether you are already a professional in a particular sport or a complete beginner wanting to try something new, England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales all host a huge variety of fantastic sporting experiences which you can enjoy on your self-catering country cottage holiday.
