The continued glorious weather may well have surprised everyone, making a staycation in the UK over the summer more popular. With some many amazing places to visit on our own shores, there really is no need to jet away in order to chase the sun!
If you are still undecided as to where to go on holiday, here are some staycation ideas for the UK…
The Lake District
By far one of the most picturesque destinations in the UK, the North really is blessed with an array of National Parks that simply take your breath away… and it’s on my doorstep! If you are considering a stay in the Lake District over the summer, check out Lakelovers who are specialists in sourcing beautiful self-catering cottages for anyone wishing to take in what the Lakes have to offer. If you like walking holidays, this is the destination for you!
If you are looking to head down South in order to ensure the best of the weather, then Dorset should be a priority. Caalm Camp is a family run glamping retreat set in the stunning Dorset countryside, with Bournmouth, Weston-Super-Mare and Weymouth all within travelling distance if you wish to spend time by the seaside. If not, then take in the fact you are on the cusp of the Cranborne Chase, an area known for its outstanding beauty. The glamping tents at Caalm Camp are well decked out and super pretty inside, fantastic for those who want to camp without the need of putting up a tent!
Somewhere in the middle and then North a little, Rossendale Holiday Cottages offer the perfect retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Located in the heart of the Rossendale Valley, the self catering cottages have everything you could need during your stay, a real home from home. If you want to try glamping, then several pods are available with their own private patio for you to sit out and relax from a day of exploring the breathtaking countryside surrounding the retreat.
This is a very small selection of our favourite staycation destinations, that prove there is so much to see and explore without the need of a passport!
