With National Parks Week fast approaching, the Met Office has joined up with the YHA to give you the lowdown on a selection of great value accommodation options, each located within a stones throw of some of the UK's National Parks.
National Parks Week runs from 28 July to 3 August and is an annual celebration of the amazing places, people, and things to be found within the boundaries of the UK's National Parks. There are a whole host of events going on throughout the week, from river dipping in the New Forest, to guided walks across the Yorkshire Dales. More information about these events can be found on the National Parks website.
If you are planning on visiting a National Park, then be sure to check the weather using the Met Office National parks forecast page.
For over 80 years, YHA have been providing affordable accommodation across England and Wales, and creating the opportunity for you to get out and explore the windswept coasts, rugged mountains and ancient forests of our incredible national parks. Celebrate National Parks Week with a stay in a remarkable location.
