Many converts to staycations, or holidays at home are happy to tell you that they are able to relax, immersed in the hot tub, or ensconced in a favourite bar whilst friends destined for “the continent” are still battling for space in the overhead locker, with a hen party destined for Malaga.
The UK has it all
For such a small set of islands, the British Isles offers an incredible variety of holiday options.
The Lake District
Fell walking, fishing, boat trips, history and luxury spa hotels sit side by side with cosy cafes and country inns all in spectacular countryside. Truly something for everyone
11,000 Miles of Coastline
With nearly 11,000 miles of coastline, the UK has a plethora of beaches, fishing villages and miles of deserted beaches for walking and every form of watersports. Whether its rock pools on Angelsey, surfing in Cornwall or cream teas in Devon the UK coastline caters for adventurers and strollers alike.
If your idea of a break is to meander through art galleries and museums, go to a show sample real ales, hang out in a gin bar or shop until you drop – there is a city in the UK with just what you need.
London is justly famous for gastronomy and modern architecture, Edinburgh for its hospitality and museums, York for its “olde worlde” feel and Manchester for its shopping and bar scene. But there are towns and villages the length of the country with a character of their own – from the Cotswolds to Rutland and North Yorkshire to Scottish Borders. All with English speaking natives – just about!
Festivals For Everyone
From literary festivals and music festivals to cheese festivals and the Goodwood Festival of Speed, there is a festival for everyone. The Edinburgh Fringe is great for comedy or try the Garstang Ice Cream Festival near our Smithy and Wharfe Cottage parks. Festivals are a great way to escape your day to day to routine, or try something different, without going near an airport.
