Where to holiday in the UK – 7 ideas to spike a staycation

Every year at this time, travel companies like us go crazy for broadcasting travel trend predictions in the hope of luring a fresh batch of customers through our digital shop fronts. This year, much like the preceding few, is said to be the year of the staycation.

The question on everyone’s lips then must surely be: where to holiday in the UK?

In no ordinary holiday rental

Do you remember promising the kids to stay in a yurt. You know, that time when they were rambling on and you were trying to get dinner on the table and you just said yes to cull the nagging? No? Ah. It may well have been forgotten in the haze of collecting stray peas from the floor and ketchup from their cheeks.

Not to worry, take your pick from our awesome collection of quirky holiday cottages.


In the footsteps of legends

It’s a myth that Sir Edmund Hillary was British. Sorry guys, he was a Kiwi. But he did train for his great Everest expedition on British soil. Mount Snowdon was good enough for him and whatever your ambitions, it’ll do for you to (trust us).

Reward your efforts with a comfy night’s sleep in one of our Snowdonia holiday cottages.


With the whole gang

It’s been said and proven time and again. Booking a large holiday home for group getaways might look spiky on the headline price but often works out cheaper per person. Whether you fancy a stay in a castle or are looking for group accommodation for a family celebration or get together, we’ve got options across the UK.

Gather family, gather friends and book one of our large holiday rentals to celebrate.


In search of firsts

There’s a stretch of the North Norfolk coastline, between Happisburgh and West Runton where a series of significant ‘firsts’ have been discovered. The world’s largest and most complete skeleton of a mammal was discovered here. As were a flint axe more than half a million years old. Plus what are thought to be the first footsteps of man on British land have been discovered in these parts.

Why not create your own first this year and book one of our gorgeous North Norfolk holiday cottages.


In the lap of luxury

What luxury means from one person to the next is highly subjective, we know. For some it’ll be a beachfront cottage. To others it’ll be all about size. Another will be expecting amazing interiors or unique architecture. And someone else will be on the hunt for one-of-a-kind finishing touches.

We won’t over promise. Instead we’ve gathered this petite selection of luxury UK holiday cottages to get you started.


With man’s best friend

As if you were on the Med

To be on the safe side of guaranteed swims without the freeze factor once you get out, best to opt for a holiday rental with indoor pool. But if you’re a glass half full kinda person, it’s got to be an outdoor pool.
