I was hoping the sun would stay around a little longer this summer, especially as we have no plans to travel abroad for my sun-fix! Instead this summer my husband and I plus a few friends plan to enjoy a long weekend in Cornwall instead (any suggestions for dog friendly cottages welcome!!).
However it doesn’t seem like we will be the only ones residing in the UK this summer. With people counting their pennies and a poor exchange rate for the Euro, the buzzword this summer is ‘staycation’. According to Visit Britain, one in five Britons who holidayed abroad last year will be staying at home this year, meaning an estimated five million extra people will be spending the summer locally using their own home as a base for day excursions or traveling a little further afield and staying for longer on the British coast or countryside.
Thankfully we have many beautiful places to choose from in the UK, however to help you make your choice, I have selected a few websites below which will hopefully offer some ideas. Happy holidays!
