If you want a holiday but you’re not quite sure if sun, sea and sand is what you’re after, why not have a break here in the UK?
There are so many beautiful places to visit and loads of things to do – here are a few of our suggestions.
It’s not for everyone but camping is a really popular holiday choice in the UK. There are thousands of sites to choose from –whether you want forests, seaside or mountains, there’ll be a campsite for you. Camping doesn’t have to mean just staying in a tent either – there are spots for caravans, campervans, static caravans and in some sites there are wooden pods you can stay in. If you’ve not considered it before, take a look here for some ideas on where a camping holiday could take you.
You don’t have to head over to Europe for a city break – the UK is packed full of busy, vibrant cities that are waiting to be explored. There’s great nightlife in places like Manchester and Newcastle, history in Bath, Lincoln and Edinburgh and fantastic shopping in Leeds and Cardiff – to name just a few. Hotels usually have good deals on weekend breaks throughout the UK – try here for some options. There's no shortage of things to see and do, and the best part? If you get lost...you know how to ask for directions.
If you’re not ready to “rough it” camping, but you don’t want a fast-paced city break, then a cottage holiday could be the best of both worlds. There are cottages and holiday homes available to rent in every corner of the UK – as remote or as central as you’d like; here is a great website to search for your perfect cottage holiday. Whilst it's more expensive than camping, you keep the costs down by taking your own food and drink, and you can tailor your holiday to be as busy or relaxed as you'd like.
