Sometimes, your next best adventure is on your doorstep. The UK is full of beautiful places to explore, from coastal villages to quiet woodlands to mountain tops. Below are a few ideas for staycation destinations, plus some tips on how to save money.
Home from home
A big benefit of booking a staycation is that you don’t have airline luggage weight restrictions. This means you can save money by bringing some things from home, such as a football or hiking boots, or board games for rainy days.
If you’re staying in a self-catering holiday cottage, you could also bring things to cook and eat: pasta, a few herbs, or perhaps some tasty tins of baked beans and crunchy snacks.
Camping or glamping?
Planning a UK staycation can give you the chance to stay somewhere a bit unusual. If you’re up for the adventure of camping, why not explore the magic of a forest? And at a very reasonable price too. Forestry England offers many beautiful woodland sites. If you’re looking for a dog friendly holiday, we’re told that you can bring the dog along for free at National Trust campsites.
For staycation glamping inspiration, have a look at Canopy & Stars, a search website that showcases unique, creative places that can give you an experience of a life more wild. One of the properties listed on the site is the Cumfrey Yurt in Fairy Bell Wood in the Lake District, set in four acres of private land, a short drive from Hawkshead Brewery.
