With such rich landscapes you won’t need to spend much at all, just grab your bike or pull on your hiking boots and explore the countryside before tucking into a picnic hamper in front of a panoramic view that inspired Brontë or Turner.

And nothing helps you get under the skin of a place like a free guided tour from a local Greeter.
