Do you enjoy getting off the beaten track? If you’re looking for somewhere to spend some off-grid time with your family and gain a true sense of relaxation and privacy you need to find an escapists paradise.

We really are talking about the roads less travelled — we’ve reviewed 60 areas of Britain and compiled data sets including, the amount of CCTV cameras which are publicly owned in each area, the population of each city, where the term ‘hidden gem’ is most frequently used on TripAdvisor, and how connected and accessible each area is.

We’ve given each location an ultimate escapist rating, with the place scoring closest to 100 being the most secluded place in the entire country!
