A network of lakes, fens, marshes and meadows make up this stunning national park and navigating your way round is easy by boat. Whether you opt to hire a vessel for a day (or for longer), be sure to keep your eyes peeled for some rare wildlife including otters, bittern and the Swallowtail butterfly.

Of course, there are plenty of places to stop off as you explore; campsites and pubs are the favourites!
