Summer is all about saying yes to new adventures, this week at Olive & Lile HQ it has been amazing summer weather! So we have been planning what little getaways we would take on our home turf here in the UK.

country

Olive & Lile was founded in one the most beautiful rural county’s in England, all the greenery, fresh blooms, clear summer skies are what gives us our daily inspiration for the brand. Here are our favourite scenic destinations in the United Kingdom, ideal for a short breaks.

Edinburgh

This quaint Scottish city is full of amazing things to do and see over the weekend. We recommend a visit to the Edinburgh castle, walking the Royal Mile to check out the shops and stopping by the Balmoral hotel for a spot of afternoon tea.

Cornwall

Cornwall is the little gem right at the bottom of England, home to white sandy beaches and the best weather in the whole of the United Kingdom – it’s no wonder we forget we are in our own country when we go to visit it. We suggest taking a long 5 day break here. Rent a beach house, enjoy surfing during the day, take long walks along the cliffs, try the local delicacy (mmm cornish pasties!) and watch the sun go down on the beach, wrapped in blankets with a cup of tea. Can’t get more British than having a cup of tea in hand! Ahh we can feel that refreshing sea air just thinking about Cornwall.
