So, schools out for summer! Six whole weeks of holidays lie ahead of the nation’s school children. But talking to mums outside the school gates, so many people are still to book a summer holiday. Forget staying at home, tearing your hair out with the kids; why not book a holiday in the UK?
There has been so much talk in recent years about the great British staycation, but forget the cliché, more and more people are choosing to stay in the UK for their summer holidays, not because they have to but because they want to. There is still availability for self-catering cottage breaks during the summer holidays so take your pick from the beauty of the Lake District to the wild Highlands of Scotland or the serene coast of Cornwall and Devon. Never mind passports, airports and jabs, holidaying in the UK is the simplest and best type of trip that you can have.
Staying in a Sykes holiday cottage is the perfect balance of keeping the cost of your family holiday down but also enjoying a touch of luxury and comfort at the same time. Plus if the weather isn’t good then a holiday cottage is a lovely place to retreat to, light the fire and relax for the evening. If you feel like pushing the boat out then there are some great family cottages with swimming pools, games rooms and hot tubs, all sure to be winners with the kids. You are on holiday after all!
So many British people have seen surprisingly little of the UK, myself included, that in recent years I have made it my mission to see more of what wonders the UK has to offer. In the last year I have visited the Cotswolds, Yorkshire and the Lake District and there really are so many cottages to choose from. The hardest part is deciding where next!
