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.

    All National Trust employees and volunteers were very welcoming and helpful. I was born in Birmingham. This stay allowed me to visit some local museums and to meet up with friends.

    Trip down memory lane

    As I was born in the back to backs in Summer Lane it was a trip down memory lane for me and I really enjoyed it. Everyone spoken to was very helpful and very polite.

    Pure nostalgia

    Struggling for a birthday surprise for my husband this visit was pure nostalgia the back 2 backs tour (included in cottage price) brilliant I believe for visitors from afar this cottage is a great central location.

    Fantastic snapshot of urban living

    Back-to-backs are a fantastic snap-shot of urban living, well worth saving from the regenerative sprawl of a rapidly expanding city centre. The minimal amenities helped to maintain the basic living format, whilst providing essentials; well balanced approach. Impressed with the property. Only let down was the very limited welcome pack, it wouldn't have been a stretch to provide salt & pepper or enough tea bags per person per day. Surprised there wasn't a copy (or highlights?) of the renovation show which was televised.
