UK Staycation Spots

by Eloise Thompson

With holidays becoming less and less. Staycations are growing more and more. Following the pandemic's quarantine rules, we may not be able to travel across the globe like we would have liked this summer. Luckily, the UK has some mesmerising spots for staycations. 

As if we needed more of a reason to get the tents out. 2020 has provided just that.

With traveling having increasing risks, and many cancelled flights- this year most families have opted for a tent and sleeping bag instead of their hotel room and pool. To our pleasure, people’s love for the outdoors and nature has strengthened throughout lockdown. For that, we can only thank Boris.

SO, whether you are new to the camping trips, or a life-long tenter… we have put together some of our favourite locations for a fabulous staycation, no matter how experienced you are.

Bring your tent, or book a B&B. These are the most gorgeous spots in the UK to connect with nature.

Mountains, valleys, forests, castles, lakes, hikes, water-falls, caves, coasts. These places have it all. Just take your pick.
