Right now, we all need to stay home and isolate. It’s pretty boring, and for the more adventurous amongst us (which is probably you if you’re reading this) it can be torturous. Although we’re not allowed to actually travel anywhere at the moment, there’s no harm in dreaming of the most exciting hidden places that we can visit once lockdown is lifted.
Whilst we’re not 100% sure what travel after lockdown will look like, we predict that many people will opt to explore the UK. Most people don’t realise that the UK is full of amazing hidden treasures that are TentBox Roof Tent friendly. Whether you’re looking for a night away or a long weekend adventure, take a look at our favourite hidden places to take your TentBox after lockdown.
Amazing, rugged views meet paved walking and cycling trails in this Peak District gem. If you’re looking for somewhere to take your bike, park up and get cycling, then this is one of the most challenging routes in the Peak District.
If road cycling is your thing, this challenge will offer an amazing workout with a short climb at the start too. It’s about a 10% gradient all the way to the top, with a cliff top view at the end for optimum photo opportunities.
Three Shires Head
Another Peak District hidden gem that offers picturesque walking trails and a riverside spot to cool off. Ideal in the summer months, this location has pools that are deep enough to plunge into and a little waterfall that makes it a relaxing break from a walking trail.
If you don’t fancy walking far, you can park as close as one mile away, making it an ideal spot no matter what your plans.

If you’re looking for a Peak District secret spot, this location is a long trail that makes it ideal for stopping and starting. It’s 46 miles long, so breaking it down in sections is recommended, whether that be in one trip or multiple ones.
You’ll pass some gorgeous villages on this lumpy route, with stunning valleys and hilltops to give you the natural landscape you’ve been craving during this lockdown period.
This national park in Devon is one of the most exciting places to head to after lockdown is over. The vast open space is what we’ve all been craving, and the moorland will offer you some great walking routes too.
Tor is one of the most popular walking areas, however if you’re looking for quieter camping spots then Dinger Tor, Lints Tor and Great Kneeset are ideal too.
The Isle of Skye
The Isle of Skye sits on the North West edge of Scotland and is full of stunning natural landscapes that will take your breath away. Here you’ll discover tranquil bays, mountain peaks and perfect beaches that make any walk here an absolute delight.
If you want to really escape lockdown and find lots of space to stretch, breathe and be, then the Isle of Skye is perfect.

This one is just about as far away as you can get from the South of the UK, but the drive up is worth it for the stunning views and walking opportunities. It’s a wild and remote spot, where you’re unlikely to run into many people.
It’s one of the most northern points of the UK and you can look out onto the ocean knowing that this is one of the only bits of land as far as the eye can see. This also makes for amazing, broad sunsets across the ocean from the cliff tops.
This mountain range is a valley away from the busier area of Snowdonia, which came under fire recently due to tourists visiting despite the lockdown measures. Once lockdown is over you won’t have to worry about this and will be able to play amongst the grass and heather as you please.
However if you are still concerned about interacting with people after lockdown Carneddau is ideal as it will be quiet and peaceful. Stunning lakes, rock pools and caves characterise this place. It’s a world away from the hustle and bustle of normal life and will give you a chance to reset.
Lantic Bay, Cornwall
Cornwall is a perfect location for those who need some sea air and a bit of me time with their loved ones. Enjoy stunning coastal walks, hidden coves and clear waters in the beautiful area of Lantic Bay. This national trust site is full of gorgeous views and amazing rock pool walks. Plus, it’s one of the lesser known bays on this stretch of coast, so it’s normally quiet.
Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons
The Brecon Beacons are full of amazing mountains that are climbed all year round by tourists and locals alike. However, one of the more quiet and secluded areas is the Black Mountains that are famous for their wild peaks and open spaces that make them the perfect destination to roam free after lockdown.

If you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy some peace and quiet amongst rolling hills, then The Cheviots in Northumberland is your best bet. Full of stunning peaks and valleys, this national park has lots of exciting areas to explore.
You’ll find hidden hillforts, and iron age remnants that make the walking trails all the more fun. Plus, the Linhope Spout is an incredible natural waterfall in the park that’s not to be missed!
