We’re so used to going abroad for our holidays that it’s often easy to forget just how much of the British Isles we’ve left unexplored.
With many people still finding money tight, holidaying at home or “staycationing” as it’s become known – is becoming an increasingly attractive option.
Whether you’re staying in the comfort of an Airbnb or considering renting your property, here are some of the jackpot areas where staycations are thriving:
Beautiful landscapes, fresh air, and more hiking routes than you can shake a walking stick at – it’s no wonder the Lake District is often the first port of call for staycationers who love the great outdoors.
Home to some of the lakes that inspired Wordsworth, the highest mountain in England, and a variety of wildlife to discover, the Lake District has something for everybody.
The energetic among us will enjoy taking on all the challenges the national park has to offer – and some of the summits aren’t for the faint-hearted.

Wales seems to get overlooked when it comes to seaside holidays – perhaps because of its not-entirely-deserved reputation as a place where it’s always raining. However, this just means that the gorgeous coastal resort of Llandudno isn’t as packed with tourists as places like Blackpool and Bournemouth at the height of the holiday season!
Llandudno boasts all the attractions you’d expect to find on a seaside holiday – beautiful beaches.
The UK also has some fantastic city break destinations, and Cambridge is one of the best. This ancient university town is picturesque and rich with history, but still offers plenty in the way of modern entertainment. It’s also a highly cultural city, well-stocked with art galleries, theatres and museums, and plays host to a variety of festivals throughout the year.
Punting on the river Cam is a popular local activity, offering a fantastic way to see the full glory of Cambridge University. The Cambridge University Botanic Garden is also a great place for nature lovers to explore. Students of history can immerse themselves in the Cambridge Folk Museum, which provides a fascinating insight into how people in the area lived more than 300 years ago.
