Lakes 'offer Britain's best views'

Britain boasts some of the best views in the world, from the stunning Scottish Highlands to the rolling countryside of England.

And motorists can head off to see the sights with peace of mind providing they've got adequatebreakdown cover.

Day-trippers baffled by the options available can take advantage of a new poll, which names two stretches of water in the Lake District as offering the best views in Britain.

Lake Buttermere came out top in the survey by car company Chevrolet, ahead of near neighbour Derwentwater, with the Seven Sisters cliff formation in East Sussex in third place, followed by St Ives in Cornwall and Stonehenge in Wiltshire.

In sixth place was Holkham Beach in Norfolk, with Swaledale in Yorkshire seventh, Wastwater in Cumbria eighth, Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland ninth, and Loch Coruisk on the Isle of Skye in Scotland 10th.

Les Turton, from Chevrolet, said: "We don't need to fork out on flights to find scenic locations. It is really great that more and more people are appreciating and acknowledging everything that our own country has to offer us. There is a wealth of beauty on offer to everyone within the UK and we only need to hit the road to find it."
