Staycations mean skipping the airport hassle, cutting your travel time and experiencing new parts of the country with far less of an impact on your stress levels and the environment.
Glamping staycations goes one step further off the beaten track. Our collection of treehouses, cabins, yurts and other unique places to stay in the UK put you in the heart of the British countryside the moment you arrive. Walks straight from your door lead into National Parks, along wild coastal trails and to cosy country pubs. You don’t just explore some of the most beautiful parts of the UK, you immerse yourself in them, spending less time travelling and more time unravelling.
The experience of a staycation can often be more important than where you stay. Whether you’re after a romantic weekend away, evenings spent in a hot tub under starry skies, extraordinarily unique places or somewhere close to calming waters, we’re sure you’ll find it within one of our collections.
Great Places to stay in the UK.
The Cornish coast seems to be the heart of the Staycation at the minute.
Cornwall has always been a major destination for UK holidaymakers and visitors from overseas.
Cornwall has an amazing 400 miles of glorious coastline – 158 of which are designated Heritage Coast – and no inland area more than 20 miles from the sea. If you want to avoid the crowds at Porthcurno and St Ives beaches you could instead head for the more secluded Pentire Steps and Portherras Cove for your sea and sand fix. If you are looking for something different in Cornwall there’s the award-winning Eden Project, an eco-park with plants from around the globe. If you are looking for a Cornwall Staycation then visit our Cornwall Hideaways partner. Look out for Rick Stein dynasty, where you’re guaranteed a fish supper fit for a king.
England’s largest National Park, Cumbria and the Lake District have long been a firm favourite with Brits and overseas visitors alike.
Cumbria is a firm favourite for Race Nights and Race Nights UK are always not far from the Lake District.
At the peak of the coronavirus lockdown many were turning to Cumbria for their Staycation. Tourist officials were asking visitors from elsewhere to stay away, but activity in the region is slowly returning.
With many outdoor activities taking place in the area, walking and cycling top of many visitors’ lists. Coniston Boating Centre is now open for boat hire, while outdoor pursuits company Adventure North West is taking bookings for activities such as kayaking, abseiling and archery. L’Enclume, Simon Rogan’s two Michelin-starred restaurant and rooms, is also taking bookings from July. Avoid traffic (and human) bottlenecks and find out about available car parking and toilet facilities while visiting by going to saferlakes.co.uk.
Many people may choose energetic Staycations and Yorkshire could be the place for you.
If you wish to avoid the crowds in the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors you should instead head west to Haworth Moor and Top Withens for a wild moorland walk. Known as Brontë country, birthplace of the prolific sisters, and while the Parsonage where they grew up may be closed, the “wild and windy moors” remain open.
The Pennine Way long distance footpath passes through this area, as does the Brontë Way, the Bradford Millennium Footpath and the Great Northern Trail, meaning plenty of options to roam. Elsewhere, Bradford’s grandiose Piece Hall is gradually reopening – and well worth a visit. Higher Scholes Cottage offers jaw-dropping views of the surrounding countryside and includes an outdoor hot tub.
The Cotswolds are an area in south central and south west England comprising the Cotswold Hills, that rise from the meadows of the upper Thames to an escarpment, known as the Cotswold Edge, above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale. The area is defined by the bedrock of Jurassic limestone that creates a type of grassland habitat rare in the UK and that is quarried for the golden-coloured Cotswold stone. It contains unique features derived from the use of this mineral; the predominantly rural landscape contains stone-built villages, historical towns and stately homes and gardens.
Visit our Cotswolds Hideaway partner should this area tempt your pallet.
