It’s the time of year to start going on holiday or at least start planning a holiday. Due to coronavirus, there’s a strong likelihood you’re hoping to go away in the UK somewhere. If that’s the case, then worry not as we’ve come up with an idea whatever sort of holiday you’re hoping for this summer.
It’s not a staycation list without mentioning Cornwall. Even though it can be a bit awkward/time-consuming to get to, you will be handsomely rewarded; it’s why so many people visit each year. With plenty of things to do and see, including relaxing on beaches, visiting the charming towns, eating Cornish Pasties, having surf lessons, going for walks, the list goes on, it’s an ideal destination for a holiday in the UK.
With beautiful countryside and quaint villages, the Cotswolds is an ideal spot for a staycation. Take long walks along the River Eye, visit the local pubs, small tea shops, independent shops and farms or head to one of the spas. Whatever you decide to do in this area of outstanding natural beauty, you’re bound to leave feeling good.
For those that like hiking, the Lake District is one of the best places to go in the UK. With challenging climbs and some tamer ones available, the Lake District has something for everyone. The scenery and the views are spectacular, and the small towns are great places to stop in for some food and a drink after a long day of walking. Just be warned, some of the places book up quickly, so it’s better to book as far in advance as possible.
If you’re after an adventure yet want to stay within the UK, look no further than the Brecon Beacons. With great hikes, brilliant views, and waterfalls, you can easily enjoy a weekend or a week exploring the area. A road trip with a tent in the car or a campervan is probably the best way to enjoy your time, see more of the area, and make an adventure of it.
We know there is, of course, London if you’re thinking of a city break, but the Scottish capital is well worth the trip. Offering museums, shops, a castle, a brilliant New Year celebration (Hogmanay), and the legendary Edinburgh Fringe Festival, whatever time of year you go, you’re sure to get your city fix.
