From Windermere to the Cairngorms and from the Peak District to Loch Ness and Lake Bala in mid-Wales, the cover story in Sunday’s print edition celebrates the best of Britain’s lakes and mountains. With this theme in mind, we’d like to hear your stories, tips and anecdotes about UK holidays you have enjoyed in the peaks or by the water (or indeed on it, or in it). Perhaps you went hiking, kayaking or wild swimming or took in the views from Snowdon. Tell us what was so liberating about it and what you love about the wild British landscape.

The reader who sends in the best entry wins an overnight stay for two people, worth £250.
