So many people tell me that they hate driving but I love it. I agree that when you have three children squabbling and unpleasant music vibrating, it isn’t the best, but there are times when I sit in my little car and take in some of the most amazing views. The first sunlight of the morning, the mist-topped hills, lambs frisking excitedly around the fields are just some of the things I witness as I drive to work in the morning and that drive would be my first choice of hidden drives. For me, a hidden drive is a road less travelled, not too busy but with stunning views.
I drop the children off at school and I take the country route to work. It isn’t necessarily the shortest way but it is quiet and it is scenic and I take in the views every morning with a smile. I would describe it as a hidden drive as it is completely off the beaten track. There are other vehicles travelling on the road, but it is never busy. It is a road that gently winds around the base of Bredon Hill in Worcestershire, not far from the much more popular Cotswolds, and whatever the weather or the season, the views are stunning.
I am changing jobs in the next few weeks and I will miss these wonderful views. Fortunately, they aren’t far from the village where my children are at school, so I am hoping to walk the road a few times instead of drive to really take in the views and to take more photos of such a beautiful landscape.
If you visit Chill Insurance over at https://www.chill.ie, they have produced an E-Book all about hidden drives in Ireland, a country I would love to visit and explore as my husband visited many years ago and always says that it is a stunning place to visit. But in the meantime, I will make do with my wonderful drive but I am always on the lookout for recommendations, so if there is a beautiful hidden drive near you, let me know.
