Still in a quandary about where to go on your summer holiday this year? We understand why, the UK is full of wonderful places! Well look no further, as we’ve compiled a short list to give you some inspiration of where to choose. From a romantic retreat for two to a large property for the extended family to enjoy, we have some ideas below that we hope will inspire you when choosing your summer holiday this year.
Summer Holiday Inspiration for Couples: Chester
With many holidaymakers flocking to the coast to enjoy Britain’s fabulous beaches, it’s a great time to head a little more inland and enjoy each other’s company on a UK city break. We really recommend Chester where you can enjoy the sun in its beautiful city centre gardens, whilst on a walk by the river or sitting outside one of the many cafes and restaurants. If you fancy heading a little further afield, Chester is in the perfect location for exploring North Wales and also cities such as Liverpool and Manchester. It really is the perfect summer time retreat for couples to spend some time together!
Summy Holiday Inspiration for Families with Young Children: Norfolk
Choosing where to head on holiday when you have young children can be difficult. Not only do you want a property that’s suitable so that the little ones will be safe and you can relax, but in a location where there is plenty of things to do to entertain both children and parents! If this sounds like something you’re looking for from your summer holiday this year, then why not make a visit to Norfolk? Being located close to the coast, wherever you stay in Norfolk you won’t be too far from sandy beaches, where children and those young at heart can enjoy building sandcastles, playing beach games, or enjoying all that the promenades have to offer. For ideas of what to get up to in this wonderful county, take a look at our Norfolk Visitor Guide.
Summer Holiday Inspiration for Families with Teenagers: Snowdonia
With social media reigning supreme and our phones being stuck to our hands (both with adults as well as children) holidays really are a time for the whole family to reconnect and none more so than families with teenagers! This means that going on holiday somewhere that the whole family can enjoy, with activities that all ages can enjoy can be quite difficult. Our suggestion would be somewhere with plenty of teenage-friendly days out that parents can get involved in too, yet also somewhere that everyone can relax. This is why we would suggest a family holiday with teenagers in Snowdonia where there is beautiful scenery, fantastic walks and a whole host of activities! Make fantastic memories by taking part in white water rafting, go seaboard by sailing or feel the air in your hair at Zip World. Whatever you choose to do on your family holiday to Snowdonia one thing is certain; you will all leave with lasting memories!
Summer Holiday Inspiration for Large Groups: The Peak District
Meeting up for a holiday in the summer months is a popular choice for both larger families and groups of friends who want to reunite and spend some quality time together in the sunshine. This can of course be a logistical nightmare, with trying to fit in different schedules and travel times. This is where central locations can come in very handy. If your group is spread around England, we recommend the Peak District for its central location and huge choice of things to do! From historic sights to the thrilling Alton Towers theme park, there is something to keep everyone in a large group entertained on a holiday in the Lake District. At Sykes Cottages, we have a number of larger properties located in the Peak District that are ideal for a summer time holiday reunion.
