Have you ever wanted to go somewhere off the beaten track, but soon discover that it’d take 3 trains, 1 ferry, a local bus and a bike ride to get there? Now you can cut out the hassle. Hire a car on Drivy for the weekend and get from A to B, at the click of a button, for a fraction of the cost.

So where can you go by car, and off the beaten track, to experience some beautifully unspoilt landscapes? We have listed 6 of our favourite locations that you can only get to by car, making Drivy the perfect solution.

1. Yorkshire Dales – Gaping Gill

Quietly hidden away in the Yorkshire Dales, the remarkable Gaping Gill Caves is one of the largest underground chambers in Britain. What makes this hidden treasure interesting is that you can only access it by a winch at certain times of the year. So keep an eye out for their seasonal opening times and be sure not to miss an epic experience right on our doorstep … or should we say, below!

2. Scotland – Loch Awe

With Loch Awe being the third largest freshwater loch in Scotland, it is certainly one not to be missed! Set deep in Scotland and surrounded by rolling hills, Loch Awe looks as though it’s been plucked straight from a movie. There are lots to keep you busy in Loch Awe. It is well-renowned for world-class trout fishing and is home to Scotland’s most photographed castle – Kilchurn Castle, accessible via a half mile walk from a small car park just over the bridge over River Orchy.

3. Devon – Wistman’s Woods

If you’re into hiking and magical mistical lands then the Wistman Woods is for you. The best time to visit is between winter and spring. Here you’ll see the moss-covered boulders and the flowers appear across the forest. Many tales of ghosts and supernatural stories have been uncovered here and it’s not hard to see why, so we’ll leave it to you to imagine if these tales are myth or not.

4. Wiltshire – Stonehenge

A must see in the UK is the prehistoric monument of Stonehenge, one of the wonders of the world. Although Stonehenge has become a heavily visited tourist attraction now, this is still not to be missed. Explore the mesmerising landscapes and take in the history that makes Stonehenge so great. Although this is certainly not the best keep secret, it’s definitely worth the visit. Stonehenge is only accessible via roads along the A303, so pack a bag and hop in your nearest Drivy.

5. Cornwall – St Michael’s Mount

You will find St Michael’s Mouth just off the coast of Mount Bay in Cornwall. This little treasure is an island visitors can walk to when the tide is low. With that being said, it’s a good idea to get clued up on the tide times to ensure you don’t get stuck over there. This picture perfect location provides stunning views and is unassumingly filled with a rich history. You have the option to climb to the castle, explore sub-tropical gardens or uncover the beauty of the harbour. So, what will take your fancy?

6. Wales – Sgwd Henrhyd

Who knew we had epic waterfalls here in the UK? Wales is filled with secret wonders, that is best explored by car. On the edge of the Brecon Beacons, you will find the tallest waterfall in the south, Sgwd Henrhyd. The walk to the waterfall is just as special as the waterfall itself. As the path twists and turns around the gorges and through the trees, it’s an adventure in itself.
