- Heart of England
The industrial heart of England now offers one of Britain's loveliest National Parks, the Peak District, a region of outstanding natural beauty with spectacular and contrasting scenery. Moorland, ancient oak woodlands, bustling market towns and pretty villages are easily accessible from some of our major cities. Some of the Trust's finest properties are in the area, including High Peak Estate, straddling the Yorkshire-Derbyshire border, Lyme Park mansion and gardens, surrounded by a medieval deer park and Hardwick Hall, hardly changed since its creation in Elizabethan times. To the south is the gentler area of the Cotswolds and its neighbouring county of Warwickshire. With its gently rolling countryside of hills and valleys, picturesque stone villages and fine houses, this beautiful area now offers the visitor a glimpse of traditional English life. The National Trust owns some of the loveliest countryside in the area, some fine houses and important gardens. There is a huge and varied choice from Tudor Snowshill Manor, with its eclectic collection of musical instruments, clocks and Japanese armour to Hidcote Manor Gardens, famous for its rare trees, shrubs and outstanding herbaceous borders. Other Trust places in the area include Newark Park with its stunning views, the Sherborne Park estate, while the Buscot and Coleshill estates in west Oxfordshire are set in 7,500 acres of rolling farmland and woodland. The Iron Age hill-fort of Badbury Hill offers superb views over the Upper Valley south to White Horse Hill and the Berkshire Downs.
If not the heart of England, the Cotswolds and the neighbouring county of Warwickshire, are surely its soul - an uplifting vision of breathtaking scenery, with gently rolling countryside of hills and valleys, picturesque stone villages and fine houses. This beautiful area offers the visitor a glimpse of traditional English life, and is attractive throughout the year. There is no better way to enjoy the splendours of the Cotswolds than to stay in one of the Trust?s many holiday homes .
