There are some amazing places to discover here in the UK! We have found 19 stunning winter photos to get you in the mood for Christmas!
1. Three Cliff Bay, Gower
A hidden gem in the South of Wales, Three Cliffs Bay is a natural wonder all year round and looks particularly stunning when sprinkled with snow in the winter months.
2. Longsands Beach, Tynemouth
Longsands beach is Tyneside’s surfing capital, so the perfect beach for anyone wanting to catch some waves. The beach looks especially beautiful here with a mixture of sand, snow, sea and the sun-setting in the background.
3. Compton Bay, Isle of Wight
The impressive mountain backdrop and reflection in the water makes this a magnificent view. But it’s not just a pretty place, the cliffs surrounding this bay constantly slip and crumble to reveal dinosaur bones! Compton Bay and neighbouring Brook Bay is one of the best places in Britain to hunt for 120 million-year-old dinosaur vertebra!
Now this would make for a lovely winter walk. Take in the fresh crisp air as you stroll along the path and gaze out at the frost covered trees.
5. Chapel Porth, Cornwall
This expansive stretch of coastline provides dramatic views across Cornwall’s rocky landscape providing striking views all year round.
6. Oban Bay, West Higlands
This quaint little harbour town in Scotland is a self-styled busy seafood capital. It offers amazing views across the Firth of Lorn to the Isles of Kerrera, Lismore and the snowy mountainous Mull. Picture perfect.
7. Luskentyre Beach, Scotland
This incredible beach looks like it could be found abroad. This snap gives off a warm winter feeling and the rocky coast gives the beach a rugged yet awe-inspiring view.
8. Lake District
This really is stunning. The array colours on the landscape and the frosty setting would make this photo perfect for a Christmas card!
9. Castle Combe, Wiltshire
Quite often named the ‘prettiest village in England’, Castle Combe sits in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and you can see why it gets it’s name!
10. Haggerston Castle, Northumberland
Our park Haggerston Castle in Northumberland looks great in the winter! Although it may not be the best weather for going out to feed the ducks, it sure does look nice!
11. Rockley Park, Dorset
The warm sunset colours reflecting in the water creates a lovely scene at our park Rockley Park in Dorest. Gaze out at the boats floating by in the background and take in the lovely view.
12. Cairngorms National Park, Scotland
What can be more Christmasy than Santa’s reindeer in the forest preparing for their big night! These majestic creatures were spotted at Cairngorms National Park in Scotland.
13. Saltburn-by-the-sea, Yorkshire
Now this really does look magical. The Victorian seaside resort has the oldest water balanced cliff tramway in Britain which links the town to the pier below. Enjoy panoramic views across the shore as you make your way on an enchanting journey down the tram-line.
Am I seeing double? With the lake creating a mirror effect in its reflection, we are blessed with this magnificent view of the mountains of Snowdonia twice!
Tread carefully! It’s that time of year when everything gets colder and lakes freeze over. A frozen lake makes for a great Christmas photo, especially when accompanied by a beautiful swan!
16. Loch Lomond National Park, Scotland
Now this really does look like a magical winter wonderland. Loch Lomond & The Trossachs is a national park in Scotland and you wont find a bigger or more beautiful lake or loch in Britain if you tried!
17. West Mersea, Essex
I love the bright colours of these beach huts in Essex! And covered in the pure white snow makes this a really pretty picture.
If you come down to Brighton beach in the winter you might be greeted by a different sight than you were in the summer! The pebbly beach looks incredible covered in white fluffy snow – however it might be a bit chilly in the sea!
19. Bournemouth Beach
With seven miles of award winning beach, Bournemouth beach is a delight to see all year round. Look out to sea upon astonishing views of the Isle of Wight and take in the sea air.
