National parks up and down the country are some of Britons’ favourite holidaying destinations. With so many options when it comes to the great British outdoors, which national park is actually Britons’ favourite?

Holiday Cottages surveyed Britons to find out which national park they thought was the best.

Coming top was the Lake District.

A quarter of Britons named the Lakes as their favourite national park, making it a clear winner.

On Tripadvisor, user BackinBracknell agreed and said: “The scenery is some of the finest in Britain and the area has now been awarded World Heritage Site status.

“The diversity of lakes and mountains, farmland, villages, woods and valleys in such a small area combine to make it special.

“Not to forget the hardy Herdwick sheep which are a feature of the Lake District and can been seen grazing the fells all year round.

“It is a beautiful place to visit any time and whatever the weather.

“There are endless opportunities for walks with great views from a gentle stroll round Tarn Hows or Rydal Water to a serious hike up Scafell Pike or Helvellyn.”

While Gwen Ben wrote: “My favourite place in the world.

“Beautiful scenery, wonderful walks, peaceful.”

In second place was the Peak District, with 10 percent of Britons naming it their favourite.

There is plenty to see and do in the oldest national park in the UK, and Britons and tourists alike can’t seem to get enough of the park.

Google reviewer Paulo Resende wrote: “The Peaks are a thing of beauty, with hundreds of walks and plenty of hidden gems from pubs to waterfalls.

“I feel that I could walk for a year with always a new place to see.”

Dina Snirhe said: “Peak District National Park is the best place on earth.”

Sharmina said: “The Peak District has something to offer to everyone of all ages.

“There is so much to see and do here, it is impossible for one to get bored.

“The sceneries are stunning and the atmosphere is amazing.”

In third place was New Forest, which Erica Pinto described as a “little piece of paradise on earth”.

On Google review, she said: “Such a beautiful national park. Fresh air, beautiful views, ponies and donkeys roaming around freely.

“Great for a walk in nature. Highly recommended a visit to this little piece of paradise on earth!”

In fourth place was Yorkshire Dales National Park and its famous Ribblehead Viaduct.

Rounding up the list of Britons’ favourite national parks was Loch Lomond and the Trossachs in Scotland.

Britons were also asked to pick one national park they had not visited but wanted to.

The national parks Britons most want to visit didn’t change much from their favourites.

Four of the five national parks named were the same.

The Peak District, however, didn’t make the bucket list and was replaced by Snowdonia.

Shannon Keary, Digital PR Manager at Holiday Cottages said: “We are lucky to have so many beautiful national parks in the UK, and it’s really interesting to see which ones are the nation’s favourite, and which are top on the bucket list to visit.

“Our national parks are truly amazing and are the perfect destination for a year-round staycation!”
