Who doesn’t love autumn? It’s a particularly wonderful time of the year; yes, the weather gets cooler, but this can be embraced and enjoyed by simply wrapping in lots of layers and getting nice and cosy. Also, don’t forget those spectacular sunsets that autumn brings, with a beautiful array of colours; so, if you love seeing the evening’s sky, then you have every reason to love autumn! We can’t talk about autumn without mentioning the nature around the UK. Mother Nature offers one last hurrah of superb warming colour and activity before winding down for a while before the spring returns.
With autumn officially here tomorrow, there is a crispness which has been in the air for a few weeks now. There is something very romantic about planning and getting away with your loved one at this time of year. With the leaves turning deep shades of red, crackling fires and cosy nights becoming the main focus, it is hard to stay away from the romantic atmosphere.

There are many benefits to living in the city. One is the vibrant atmosphere that epitomises city life, the constant buzz of events is perfect for those social butterflies out there. City life provides great opportunities for work, and you can guarantee that no one day is the same as the next.
As great as city life can be, it sure can be draining! Plus, the air pollution is something that is really noticeable once you leave the city and make your way to the countryside. And not to dampen readers thoughts of city life, there are limited areas of green space where wildlife plays and true peace and quiet can be appreciated! It is, therefore, no surprise that many urban-dwellers are seeking rural retreats for some well-needed R+R. If this sounds like you, our helpful guide will highlight the type of rural retreats Quality Unearthed have to offer, their benefits and the type of traveller and group they suit.

Glamping has come a long way in the decade of its existence. Originally originating as a joke towards the high-income travellers wanting to camp but not willing to part with their luxuries, glamping developed into a serious holiday accommodation option, and firmly cemented itself within the camping industry in just a couple of years. This was down to a few factors, including income rises that allowed customers to spend a little extra on their staycations and the importance of unique locations and trips which glamping properties offer. In addition, the expanse of glamping can be credited, in part, to the development of social media and the encouragement of sharing unique travel experiences.
