why you should consider a staycation.

With restrictions lifting, going abroad might be the first thing on your mind, but for others, it may be their worst nightmare. Luckily, we have the option to explore the UK and its vast choice of destinations for all types of holiday seekers.

If you are one for walking and adventure, then the countryside has a lot to offer, with places like Scotland and The Yorkshire Dales offering an array of countryside walks and some fantastic geological features. But if you prefer a luxurious break, then coastal areas, such as Cornwall and Wales, are home to several beautiful beaches to sit and relax by.

If you are all for sightseeing and travelling the world, you are probably wondering why on earth anyone would prefer a staycation. Well, let me enlighten you.

it will save you money.

Firstly, you will likely save money with a staycation as you have cut the cost of flights, travel insurance, visas, and expensive hotels. You will have more spending money at hand to spend on enjoyable experiences during your holiday. This is an excellent option for families as you can afford to do a range of new experiences together as a family. But it can also be a great option for the younger generation, giving you more money to spend on partying and going out for meals. Sounds good to me!

the breathtaking scenery.

Obviously, when you go abroad, you get to witness some amazing views and scenery, but you can get this in the UK too! The UK has many breathtaking views on offer, with destinations such as Wales, Scotland, and the Lake District offering hills, beaches, and lakes waiting to be admired. You can witness some amazing views in the UK that nowhere else in the world has to offer. Take advantage of this beautiful country we live in.

travel with ease.

Another benefit of staying in the UK for a holiday is the ease of travelling. You don’t have to worry about flight times and airport transfers. It gives you so much flexibility. This aspect of a staycation is my favourite. You can literally leave whenever you like and arrive at your destination at a time that best suits you!

Having enlightened you with just some of the benefits of a staycation, you may be tempted to explore the stunning scenery throughout the UK as your next holiday. This may bring to light the question of where to explore first.

As mentioned previously, there are many beautiful parts of the UK waiting to be seen. A couple of my personal favourites are:

The Jurassic Coast.

This beautiful world heritage site stretching from Dorset to Devon offers breathtaking scenery with outstanding geology. The beach itself is beautiful, and the famous landmark, Durdle Door, is a must-see geological feature.

Cornwall St Ives.

For all those beach lovers out there, this is the idyllic holiday destination for you. St Ives offers some of the most beautiful beaches in the UK. It feels like being abroad when the sun is shining and the water is glistening. If you don’t feel comfortable going abroad yet and are looking for a compromise, this is a perfect holiday location for you!

So, if you are feeling a bit unsure about taking the leap of going abroad just yet, then don’t do it! A staycation has a lot to offer and will still be an amazing holiday.
