Are you getting bored with all the hassle of booking airline tickets, arranging accommodation and then spending six hours on a flight just to take your annual summer holiday? Yes? Well, you’re certainly not the only one. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve spent a long time researching some really cool UK-based alternatives that could prove to be far more enjoyable for everyone in your group. At the end of the day, there’s only so many times you can eat supposedly “authentic” English breakfasts while watching Only Fools and Horses reruns before Benidorm starts to lose its appeal, and that’s precisely why this article has been written.
Below this paragraph, you’ll see a number of suggestions you might like to look into further. All of them work out to be the same price, or cheaper than a standard European vacation, and they have the added advantage of being reachable by car, which could see you saving almost a thousand pounds. So, take a look through and see if any seem appealing. I know for certain that I’ll be trying out at least two of them during the summer this year.
Yurts In Devon
The term “glamping” has been around for a few years now, and while it was originally coined to encourage upper-class people to spend lots of money on staying in farmers fields, an entire industry has grown up around it since then, and now prices are much lower than you might imagine. For a family of four staying in a single yurt, you can expect to pay around £500 for the week during peak season. However, as they’re so amazing at dealing with heat retention, there’s no reason those on a budget couldn’t book slightly outside of the main weeks to save a bit more cash. Devon also has lots of interesting attractions you won’t want to miss.
Static Caravans In Skegness
Skegness has long been the destination of choice for many British holiday goers who want to spend their vacations relaxing in the UK. Over the last few years, there has been a lot of investment in this region, with means the towns and villages surrounding it have now been restored to their 1960’s former glory. Anyone wishing to book a holiday here should definitely check out some of the parks listed on East Coast Caravans or a similar website.
Log Cabins In Matlock Bath
It might be home to one of the worst theme parks in the UK, but Matlock bath is surrounded by stunning a stunning landscape with awe-inspiring views that could give you a whole new attitude towards British holidays. There are many different parks to choose from, and nearly all of them offer upmarket log cabins alongside the standard caravan and tent pitches. While you’ll almost certainly pay more for a log cabin, they tend to have heating and electricity hookups, which obviously has certain advantages for the women in your group who can’t live without their straighteners.
If you want my opinion, I’d advise you to check out Matlock Bath and Skegness before anything else. That said, staying in a yurt for the first time can be very exciting, so you should probably just go with your gut.
Have a fantastic time!
