Staycation for the nation

One positive thing to come out of the global pandemic is without a doubt the staycation boom, which meant that more people than ever before got to sample the delights of the UK and realised that holidaying at home does in fact have its perks – but we already knew that! 

There’s a new generation of holidaymakers out there, who have been inspired to stay closer to home. In fact, 46% of respondents to a recent survey* revealed that they’re looking at staying within the UK when holidaying this year. And, we agree – a quick trip up or down the motorway certainly beats a 7-hour flight in our eyes.

As October half term is just around the corner, we’re celebrating and shining a light on some of our favourite UK spots – because when it comes to escaping the everyday, no one does it quite like us Brits. Check out our handy guide, make your sarnies for the road and don’t forget to pack your wellies and your big coat!

Newgale Holiday Parks

Located in Pembrokeshire, Newgale beach is one of the most beautiful Blue Flag beaches in Britain, with a 2-mile stretch of gorgeous golden sand.

Newgale Holiday Park is nestled in an idyllic valley with most pitches offering a stunning sea-view over St. Brides Bay. If you look close enough, you’ll spot the islands of Skomer, Grassholm, Ramsey and the spectacular coastline around Solva – it really is the definition of picture-postcard. 

Sunset Holiday Village 

Lap up the luxury in a leisure home or lodge at Sunset Holiday Village. Perfectly sandwiched in-between two peaceful lakes in the beautiful Flyde countryside and just 10 miles from the bustling seaside town of Blackpool – this park really does offer the best of both worlds.

It’s the ideal escape for couples searching for a digital-detox and families alike. Plus, it’s within an hour’s drive of the Lake District. 

Westlands Country Park

If it’s first-class facilities you’re looking for, then Westlands Country Park, nestled among 100 acres of tranquil woodland in the beautiful county of Dumfries is the place for you. Each plot is carefully chosen to make best advantage of the peaceful landscape with views for days, offering a truly scenic and relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of the everyday. 

You can even stay in one of our bespoke Stargazer models, providing the perfect blend of high-quality design and contemporary features, for a truly unique experience, as you lay in bed, drifting off to sleep, underneath the stars.
