A selection of UK beaches to make you consider a holiday in the UK
Coastal walks aren’t just relaxing, they’re a nice break from the mountains and hills. A walk in the sea air is said to make you sleep for longer, but more than anything – coastal walks offer up some stunning views as well. Here we have selected 15 areas of coastline around the UK, and a walk for you to enjoy them.

A guide to mountain biking in Forest of Dean
As one of the UK’s most picturesque and rural locations, the Forest of Dean is a haven for walkers and cyclists alike.

Like a Boss – Introducing the 2017 Calibre Bossnut
In 2015 Calibre made waves on the mountain bike market with the unveiling of the Bossnut mountain bike, the crown jewel in a range that was starting to receive all the right kind of looks from the two wheeled community. The Calibre Bossnut would go on to change what people thought a £1000 mountain bike could be, it won ‘Bike of the Year’ 2015 from MBR magazine and came runner up in 2016 also, as well as a string of great reviews from other established mountain bike press.
It’d be easy to sit back on the early success of the Bossnut, but the Calibre team went back to the workshop with one thing on their mind; ‘Can we make this even better?’

Don’t listen to TLC, get out there and chase these Waterfalls
Waterfalls in films are often depicted as romantic, exotic locations (or the inevitable end to somebody being carried down a fast flowing river), and we have some stunning waterfalls around the UK that you can visit, and some of them couldn’t be easier to reach. The best thing about waterfalls, is that they’re actually more impressive in the rain – so don’t let the great British summer hold you back.
In this article we look at some of our favourite waterfalls around the UK and offer up a walk you can tackle to find them.
