Green travel is a hot topic right now – more and more travellers want to do their bit for the environment without sacrificing an awesome holiday. An easy way of doing that is swapping out short-haul flights for train journeys instead. Not only is the train a more energy-efficient mode of travel, releasing less CO2, but it can also provide you with plenty of amazing scenery to enjoy through the window, making the journey almost rival the destination.
To help you on your eco-conscious journey, we've pulled together a collection of villas across the UK and France that are easy to reach by train. We've also made sure that these destinations only require changing trains a maximum of twice if travelling into London - because we know that families with little ones don’t want to be hopping on and off!
