Country Roads are the best roads to drive.
Best Country Roads to (Drive) Take me home. You might have a car for work, or you need your car to drive to the shops. You could even use your car for road trips and country drives. There is something fantastic about jumping in the car with a map, following a road to nowhere and discovering amazing new places. It can bring enjoyment back to the car journey and can show you a whole new side of the UK.
If you need to get away from the city, out of your lockdown situation, a road trip around some of the best roads in the UK could be exactly what you need. It does not matter if you are in a sports car, a 4 by 4, or even on a motorbike. These roads give views and experiences that will make you remember the joys of the road trip.
Starting in the North:
The Isle of Aaron Circular
There is a 54-mile road trip of the island of Aaron, off the coast of Scotland. The drive is hard in bad weather, so make sure that you pick the right weekend for the trip. You will need to get the ferry across to the island. When the seas are choppy, that alone is not for the faint hearted and weak stomached. On the island, there is an amazing circular road that encompasses everything great about Scotland. The hills, mountains, thin winding roads, moors of heather and the cold, sometimes harsh sea breeze can take you away from the world, to a place forgotten by time.
Moving down the country:
Hard Knot Pass, The Lake District.
For any of you who have braved this road, you will be saying YES right now. It is an experience that you will not forget. With 1 in 3 gradients, hairpin bends and narrow roads, this is a journey not for the feint of heart. Superb on a motorbike, great in a car comfortable with challenges, scary if you have a caravan on the back or if your car is old and might not make it up and down the hills. The views make it worthwhile, the sense of achievement and the glass of cider at the end of the drive make it even more enjoyable.
For a change of pace, how about a flat ride along some amazing coastal scenery
Norfolk Coastal road, starting in Norwich and going round towards Hunstanton and on to Peterborough. It is a long drive, with forests, hills, cliff edges, long sandy beaches and even a Royal residence on the way, it is something that reminds you of Britain in times gone by. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Out of the box that you have confined yourself to for the past few months of Covid, you are back to breathing the air as it should be. Clean, crisp, and clear, with a hint of salty sea breeze.
To enjoy a road trip this year, you might need a new car. Match Me is here to help you get the finance, and have the car delivered to your door. When the lockdowns end, a new car awaits, and the open road is calling you.
