Land Based Activities with holiday accommodation

There are many activities for you to enjoy whilst on dry land on a country cottage holiday in the UK and Ireland. There are also great activities and sports that can be done at your own leisure, at your own pace in a relaxing and beautiful environment. On the other hand many of these activities can be adapted to a faster pace or a more intense ride. Walking and trekking is suitable for all ages and abilities, stroll the beautiful countryside and stunning landscapes of the UK and Ireland's National parks or take a more intense and fast-paced trek up the breathtaking mountains. Cycling is also adaptable, enjoy a family peddle around one of the beautiful Irish lakes or Scottish Lochs or pace yourself and cycle for miles through quaint villages and sleepy towns in the Cotswolds or welsh coastal paths.

Horse riding is always a exciting way to explore the scenery around you, whether your unexperienced, would like to enjoy a gentle hack through woodland or are a competent rider and would prefer a fast paced, brisk, refreshing gallop through the beach surf, there is something to suit everyone. Fishing and golf are common place throughout the UK and Ireland and there is also plenty of fantastic nature reserves, National parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty for you to appreciate if you decide to go bird or wildlife watching.

Farm holidays provide an opportunity to have a rented cottage base in the country from which to participate in a variety of outdoor activities.
