Lifestyle in summer

Lifestyle breaks in summer

Take a step back from the everyday and enjoy summer holidays outside the box, from conservation holidays in the middle of a forest to short weekend breaks in the watchtower of a castle. Enjoy a weekend break at the former home of Victorian inventor Lord Armstrong in picturesque Northumberland; become a zookeeper for a day and get up close and personal with some of nature’s more endangered species in Hampshire, and pick up a paint brush and get creative on an art holiday in Brighton.
