Country clothing retailer A Hume asked 10,000 people what they love about the great British countryside – and it might not be what you’re expecting.
Brits love a bit of peace and quiet
So why do we love the countryside? Here are the results:
- For 52% of overall respondents – and 77% of 55-64 year old females – peace and quiet was top of the agenda.
- According to the study, idyllic scenery is high on the UK’s agenda, with 45% of participants – and 60% of 18-24 year olds – saying they love a countryside view.
- A third of those surveyed said the chance to get up close with the wildlife is what draws them to the countryside. This was also a popular answer with 25-34 year old male respondents, as well as women aged 45-54 – taking 45% and 55% of their votes respectively.
