A holiday in a rural atmosphere is just what you need to find peace and start enjoying the small things in life again. With Nature.house you have endless possibilities to rent a home in the English countryside.

Flora

England has a diverse pattern of natural vegetation due to its varied climate and soils. The beautiful English landscape gardens, and a part of an estate or castle, are stunning sights to see from your English country house. All kinds of plants and trees are interspersed with waterfalls, bridges, and temples. You can also often find a place for a real cup of English tea at these gardens. By living in an English country house, you can learn about organic farming and your children can play with the animals. It's an authentic and truly rewarding experience. Southeast England is covered with oak, elm, ash, and beech trees. The wild vegetation consists of the natural flora of woods, fins, cliffs, and mountain slopes. Envisage yourself relaxing in the country houses of Cornwall, a county that forms the tip of the southwestern peninsula of England with mild, warm, or sub-tropical climate and beautiful palm trees. While walking down the coastal area of ​​Cornwall from your country house, you will be mesmerized by the astonishing scene of heavenly-scented rare flower species such as Bulbous Buttercup, Sea campion, Spring squill and so many others that could be included in this list, it's difficult to know where to stop! For your spring break holidays, this is a perfect destination to book an English country house in nature, secluded from others.

Fauna

Deforestation has caused the reduction of animals in England therefore, wolves, bears, and reindeer are extinct but red and roe deer are protected for sport. Very similar to northwestern continental Europe, smaller mammals like foxes, hares, hedgehogs, rabbits, stoats, and shrews are found. Otters are spotted playing in many rivers, and seals frequently appear along the coast! The steep, rocky coast of England is home to many different seabirds. The rocks provide them with an ideal breeding place. Hence, you'll most definitely encounter the gannet, kittiwake, and shag. Do keep an eye out for the Norwegian petrels, because if you get too close to their nest they might attack you! Red squirrels in a large population can be found in the Lake District in North West England. Since on road, you may have to slow down once you spot road signs alerting you to the possible presence of red squirrels

Activities

Gliding through the water in your kayaks on a beautiful summer day as you take in all that nature has to offer in England, sounds perfect, doesn't it? Go to the mountainous Lake District, UK's newest UNESCO protected site, for a picturesque hike or kayak with views of the tranquil lakes, fells, and the whole heap of sleepy villages to explore. This region is also a popular place for collecting precious gems if you'd like to try something new. You definitely have more options to go hiking.

During summers, go on a rewarding hike across the Cotswolds Way, where you can visit the traditional English villages, spot sheep and cows on the farms, and take pictures with the Broadway Tower. Experienced surfers might want to check out Devon, with crazy waves perfect for tricks where you might find yourself and your mates alone on the beach, even during the winters!

They might make your life easier if you're going on a hike in the mountains. The sunniest parts are along the south coast of England but during the winter months, Cornwall is the coldest place in England but is the least likely to get snow. Several thin layers can keep you warm but in extreme winters.
