A NEW survey has revealed what Brits love about the countryside - and it might not be what you’re expecting.

Country clothing retailer A Hume asked 10,000 people what they love about the great British Countryside.

Last year British staycations hit a seven-year high with over 19.7 million UK holidays booked in the first quarter of the year. A Daily Mail report cited the main reason for the surge as countryside festivals and above average weather, providing inspiration for the survey.

When A Hume Surveyed Britain, these were the most popular answers -

*Peace and quiet: 51.5%

*Views: 45.0%

*Wildlife: 33.8%

*Pubs: 25.1%

*Lack of traffic: 20.4%

*Food: 16.9%

Archie Hume, Managing Director of A Hume, said, “The survey results have highlighted the UK’s love of the great outdoors, reminding us how fortunate we are to live and work in a location as beautiful as the Scottish Borders. The countryside, peace and quiet, and unrivalled views are a huge part of Britain’s appeal - and clearly survey’s respondents agree.”
