Finding guides on what to do in the country

When taking a country break you may well want to plan a few activities or a few places to go see whilst you are away.  The internet can be a great source of free information when it comes to finding out what there is to see and do up and down the country.  Many websites now produce area guides which highlight the main attractions and things to do in each area.  Country Cottages Online produce some such guides, which are excellent for free information.  These guides can be a valuable source of information and advice.  Sometimes the best information though comes directly from friends or family who have been to your chosen destination already and are able to personally recommend places to you.  There are also various review websites available  but peoples’ opinions do vary so greatly that some people find such reviews useful whereas others simply do not.

Local papers very often have lists of events including country events.  Over the Easter weekend there are likely to be a number of country shows throughout the UK.  You may find such events advertised locally or in the local press.  Another good source of information is the local tourist information office.  Within the UK local Tourist Information Offices offer free advice and in most you can enjoy browsing through brochures, most of which are available for free.  Here you can pick up details of walks, attractions and things to do.  You can also ask the staff whether they are able to make any recommendations.

Wherever you decide to get information from, we do recommend doing thorough research before booking a trip in the country so you can have a fun packed break.
