Despite the recent weather, staycations are on the rise as an increasing number of Brits opt for local holidays in the UK. As holidaymakers move further away from the prospect of international travel, this summer, we are ready with pages of holiday accommodation, nationwide. Are you looking for a country cottage, or even a large fun-filled resorts!
Whether your decision to remain in the UK is a money-saving measure, an attempt to save the environment or reduce on your overall travel time – leaving you with more time to enjoy your holiday: the stats speak for themselves. The UK has noticed a rise of upto 20 per cent as more Brits choose to stay in the UK for their holidays. Will this be the year that UK holidaymakers turn their backs on overseas trips to stay in the region, for good?

UK holidays host a range of activities and satisfy even the most discerning holiday-maker. If you are looking for fun-filled activity holidays for you and the children to enjoy then you may find that staying in the UK is the best option. Netmums have been discussing the issues of travelling abroad, with their families, such as children at the airports, loading onto trains, foreign food for picky young eaters, safety abroad and the expense of holidays for larger families. With this in mind, is it any wonder that they are looking for something a little closer to home.

It is not only families that British holidays are increasingly popular with. Interestingly the Lewis and Harris islands, Scotland’s largest island in the Outer Hebrides, has been rated one of the five ‘Best Islands’ in the world by TripAdvisor: a place for families, walkers, lovers or friends. The Lewis and Harris islands won their place at the top of the list despite competition with spectacular islands across the globe, including islands in the Caribbean!
