5 Reasons to holiday in the UK this year

With so many fantastic destinations on our doorstep, why not take the hassle out of holidaying and take a trip within the UK this year. From the tranquil lochs and highlands of Scotland to the quaint coastal villages of Cornwall and everything that’s in-between, there’s a destination for everyone.


#1 Stress-Free Travelling

Enjoy the ease of just jumping in your car and driving to your holiday destination. With no mad panic to get to the Airport on time, no lengthy check-in or security queues to wait in, no waiting around looking at the board to see if the gate is open yet, and no waiting for other people to board the coach to take you to your resort.

Simply load the car up and within a few hours (or less) you could be arriving at a glorious sandy beach fringed by British seaside shops filled with souvenirs, with the smell of fish & chips in the air. There is something quite leisurely about UK trips, with a feeling that you can just take your time, stop en-route to your destination and enjoy the journey.


#2 Something for Everyone

The UK has so much to offer that even the hardest to please will find something they love. If the great outdoors and nature is your thing, head to the Lake District or Scotland to take in the stunning scenery.

If the coast is what you love, head to Cornwall. Boasting undiscovered coves, golden sandy beaches and picturesque coastal scenery. Take a surf lesson at the famous Fistral Beach in Newquay for an adrenaline hit. If you prefer the bright lights, take in a show with a city break in London, or shop till you drop in one of the many cities throughout the UK.

If all you want is a complete retreat, then a spa break in a luxury hotel would be perfect. All of these things and more are at our feet. From the adventurous and active to the complete chillout – the UK really does have it all!


#3 Choice of Accommodation

Again this is completely down to personal preference. Some holidaymakers want to get back down to nature, so a camping trip is perfect for this. For a taste of this experience with a little added luxury, there are many glamping sites throughout the UK now offering wooden pods, tepees and bell tents filled with all the camping essentials needed for your trip.

If you would prefer something quainter, you could book a fisherman’s cottage by the sea.

For families wanting activities and things to keep the kids entertained, then one of the many holiday parks around the UK would be ideal. With caravans, chalets and woodland lodges catering for all sizes of families, indoor swimming pools and splash parks, adventure playgrounds and kids discos, holidays parks are a winning combination.

For those dreaming of a haven of peace, head for a park offering lodges with a hot tub. Imagine sipping on Champagne with your loved one, surrounded by the bubbles of your outdoor hot tub teamed with the sounds of the birds tweeting in the trees. These romantic retreats are available throughout the UK.


#4 Value for Money

There is so much choice in the UK  and there really is something to fit everyone’s budget. From basic campsites to 5* hotels boasting Michelin Star restaurants and menus.

Being UK residents we can also judge the average cost of drinks and meals without any nasty surprises upon arrival. With a UK holiday, there is no need to lose out on foreign currency exchange. Just pack your purse/wallet and go! Not forgetting, any essentials you may have forgotten can be purchased from your usual shop/supermarket.


#5 Food & Drinks

By staying in the UK you know what you are going to get when it comes to eating out or purchasing shopping for your self-catering holiday. Whether a home cooked meal in a cosy traditional pub with a local ale is your option, or a bag of fish of chips on a bench overlooking the sea, to a slap-up meal with all the trimmings in a classy restaurant UK holidays cater to all tastes.

So this year why not try a holiday in the UK. With so many beautiful places to explore, get out there and enjoy our magnificent country.
