Even if you manage to improve your homes aesthetic appeal and fall in love with its new look, we all need a holiday every now and then. It’s good for us parents, great for the kids, and as a family overall, it enables us to create memories and have some fun.
Domestic holidays are proving popular in 2020, with several staycation destinations attracting people from all over the country. The Great British public is unearthing hidden gems and experiencing everything the Great British isles has to offer in the process. There’s only so many months of the year we can stay at home without clicking to play casino games in the evenings or plonking ourselves down in front of the television for hours. Of course, that’s needed at times but so too are holidays, where you can walk through the beautiful English countryside or catch monster fish in the Scottish highlands. Who doesn’t want to create lasting memories for the family if they can, right?
Deciding on the perfect staycation destination for your family can be a tricky task, though, especially if you all have a range of different interests. So, to help spark a few ideas and hopefully provide some inspiration too, here are some of the best staycation destinations the UK has to offer in 2020.
Particularly famous for its Roman-built baths, Bath is a lovely city full of history. The biggest city in Somerset has an array of independent shops to visit as you stroll through what is a stunning location. The Royal Crescent and Thermae Bath Spa are worth checking out too, especially if you’re keen on partaking in a pamper session or two. If you’re after a city adventure, then you can’t really go wrong with Bath.
Jurassic Coast, England
One of the most stunning coastlines in the world, the Jurassic Coast stretches from Exmouth in East Devon to Studland Bay in Dorset. There’s so much to do and see too, with an array of towns and villages to visit, from the likes of Swanage with its traditional old seaside town feel, coupled with historical places such as Lyme Regis. The region has great seafood to try too, alongside its great beaches to visit also. There’s certainly plenty to do in this part of England.
If you’re keen on outdoor adventures and exploring natural beauty, then you’ll struggle to beat a place offering the highest mountain in England and Wales, and the largest natural lake in Wales. Snowdonia has been described as the New Zealand of the UK before, and it’s easy to see why. With stunning views and an outdoor lifestyle hard to better anywhere else in the world, Snowdonia is a real treat for the family.
Cheltenham has more to offer than just its famous racecourse. In fact, the Cotswold spa town has plenty on show to keep the family entertained, be it by visiting the lido for a refreshing swim or checking out the promenade which is full of top quality bars and restaurants. Pittville Park is worth a visit also.
The home of the Loch Ness Monster, Inverness is a stunning city located on Scotland’s northeast coast. If you’re wanting to sample traditional Scottish life at its best, then you’ll find it in a city full of excellent whisky, stunning views, and great Scottish grub. Men in kilts can be seen, too!
