When it comes to showing off the prettiest villages in England I knew I'd struggle to whittle them down. England is rich in picturesque quaint villages, each of them unique and special in their own right. Pastel coloured cottages with hanging flowers baskets, winding cobbled lanes and churches which have stood proud for centuries. Close knit communities with locals who know each others names and meet for a chat while buying the newspaper in the morning. These villages have been chosen by some of the Uk's top bloggers as their all time favourites.
Corfe Castle, Dorset by Sophie from Escape to Britain
Nestled in the Purbeck Hills in Dorset, the stunning village of Corfe Castle is an absolute must-see on your next British adventure. Close to the salty sea breeze and surrounded by the kind of charming countryside that is so synonymous with West Country England, 'Corfe Castle' is not only the name of a village but also that of a historic castle which stands high and proud above the rest of the settlement and is well worth a visit in of itself.
There's been a fortification on site since at least the 10th-century, though it wasn't until the Normans arrived around a century later that the castle grew to true prominence in the surrounding region. During the Middle Ages, Corfe Castle was often said to be the 'most fortified castle' in England. Unfortunately, the complex of buildings were badly damaged during the Civil War, and today romantic ruins can be explored for a small fee.
Elsewhere in Corfe Castle, there are a myriad of delightful corners to discover, including several eateries and the smallest town hall in England which houses a free to visit museum. A visit to Corfe Castle parish village and its castle can easily be combined with a trip to the nearby Jurassic Coastline, making for the perfect English escape

Why wild camp?
Wild camping offers an escape from civilisation and if you are searching for solitude, you are likely to find it. Uninterrupted views, peaceful sunsets and unreal sunrises.
Popular wild camping spots, by design, are quiet and tranquil. If you wanted to be surrounded by other people, you would book a spot on a camp site. The back-to-basics approach to wild camping allows you to reconnect with nature.
If you are staying in a Disney Hotel you get to add on a Disneyland Paris meal plan meaning you can pay for your meals as a package before you go saving you money and helping you to budget. You might get offered it free with your package, these are offered at certain times of the year so it depends on when you book. If not you can add it on to when you book 0or before you leave by giving them a call. There are major pros to having a meal plan, the restaurants can be expensive, especially the table service restaurants. The meal plan vouchers give you three courses and a drink for each meal (lunch/dinner) so if you choose to use your voucher at a more expensive restaurant you really can save a fortune. Of course you also won't need to take much money daily to the parks either as you'll only really need to buy water and souvenirs.

Disneyland Paris turned 25 last year and it’s a park that has had its fair share of ups and downs since it opened it’s doors in 1992. Originally known as “Eurodisney” the park struggled financially due to recession and lower than expected visitor numbers. After a name change and the introduction of new rides however it’s now become the number one tourist attraction in Paris, above the Eiffel Tower and The Louvre! It’s a popular, thriving and utterly magical park.
The park is cleverly located 20 miles east of Paris in the village of Marne-la-Vallée. Clever because it’s within 4 hours driving time for 68 million people and within 2 hours flying time for a further 300 million people. It’s easy to reach for most people, brilliantly fun to research and wonderful and memorable when you finally get there.
Disneyland Paris consist of two parks, the main park known as Parc Disneyland and a second park, Walt Disney Studios. There are seven on-site hotels, Disney Village filled with shops and restaurants and several off-site partner hotels.
