2020 and 2021 were the year of the staycation with plenty of Brits looking for local areas and ways that they could get away from the daily grind whilst not going too far afield.
Whilst 2022 is set to be a year that many look overseas for their holidays, demand is still strong for staycations in the UK, here we explore 3 great staycation locations you can keep in your back pocket for a weekend getaway in 2022.
1. The Channel Islands
Okay, so we are cheating a bit with this one, but the Channel Islands are great if you are looking for a weekend away via plane without having to leave the country. They often benefit from warmer weather in the summer months and offer some great coastal walks. There are a great range of holidays available here covering a lot of different budgets, so always make sure you check in on the channel islands when you are booking your staycation getaways.
2. The Lake District
The beauty of the Lake District is hard to match, which is why it is one of the most popular staycation options in the UK. Wray Castle on the western shore of Lake Windermere is a great day out and offers some fantastic sightseeing for the history lovers out there. There are also great boat cruises available within the Lake District, so make sure you do your research before heading out on your day trips.
Devon has some of the best holiday parks in the UK, and the coastal waters are perfect for a variety of watersports and activities. There are also a lot of parks here that offer more luxurious stays, all the way through to budget/affordable ones, so make sure you check out which stay is right for you.
Both North and South Devon are great holiday locations, with plenty of long walks and trails for those seeking adventure and good sightseeing!
