Walking 'a key reason to holiday in UK'
Bookmark and Share
The chance to go walking in some of Britain's most attractive countryside has been identified as one of the main reasons for people to have their holidays in the UK.

A survey by holiday homes letting agency cottages4you has shown 91 per cent of Britons intend to take a break in their own country next year, 23 per cent more than in 2011.

The most popular location stated was Cornwall, followed by the Lake District, both of which could provide plenty of exercise for those keen to take walking boots and Ordnance Survey maps with them.

Spokesman for the firm Mark Rudge said economic factors are one reason for the choice, but not the only one.

He added: "The findings also revealed that our love of the great outdoors is one of our biggest motivations to staycation."

Visitors to Cornwall could enjoy walking along the South West Coastal Path which stretches 630 miles from Minehead in Somerset to Poole in Dorset.
