If you've been in a city for several months without leaving, or simply if you've just been inland for too long - the urge to go to the coast can be pretty strong.
The sea is so calming, the air so fresh. Even the smell of the salty sea air is enough to revitalise.
Lucky for us, Our Land has miles of coastline and it's all on our doorstep - look no further than the South Downs, the Kent Downs and the New Forest.
