Small independent hotels with character in the UK 

The North of England
While the North of England is famed for its great industrial cities, such as Manchester, Leeds, sheffield, Newcastle on Tyne and Bradford, much of the area is made up of sparsely populated moorland and mountain.  among the most popular wild areas of the North of England are the Lake district, the Yorkshire Moors, and the Peak district - all of them popular with hikers, ramblers and outdoor enthusiasts. Away from the industrial areas and cities, there are many quaint villages and market towns, and some breathtaking scenery to be enjoyed.
