Best Loved Hotels

The UK boasts 15 national parks, each of them extraordinary in its own way. These are the nation's protected breathing spaces, complete with majestic scenery and a fascinating variety of landscape and wildlife. This week we celebrate Best Loved hotels in or near Britain's national parks, from Snowdonia to Dartmoor, from the Dales and the Lakes to the South Downs. Whether you are returning to an old favourite or exploring a new area of the country, there's something here for everyone.
