Grassington: All Creatures Great and Small village named among prettiest in the UK
A company has named the seven most stunning destination villages, as millions of motorists plan to drive across the country for a day out on Bank Holiday Monday.
Grassington in North Yorkshire “features plenty of walking trails for drivers to get out and stretch their legs”, according to a report by car rental firm StressFreeCarRental.com.
Of Grassington, it says: “Surrounded by pretty limestone buildings, Grassington in North Yorkshire features several walking trails around the bordering National Park, with country pubs, independent shops and small cafes surrounding the cobbled streets of the village square.”
John Charnock, CEO of StressFreeCarRental.com said: “The UK has some of the prettiest and quaint villages in the world, and motorists should seriously consider making a pit stop through some of these gorgeous destinations as they head out this bank holiday.
“Over 14 million drivers are expected to hit the roads, so making a detour to stretch your legs and get some fresh air after being stuck in traffic for hours is a good idea.
“Rather than stopping over in a service station, make the most out of your road trip and have a stroll around some of the most beautiful villages the UK has to offer.”
Other villages featured include Inkberrow, Worcestershire; East Budleigh, Devon; Crovie in Scotland; and Solva, in Wales.
