Best Summer Staycation Destinations

With the pandemic forcing everyone to spend more time indoors, and with foreign travel increasingly difficult this year, more and more Company Directors and Owners that we’re speaking to are opting for a summer staycation in the UK.

While it’s great to stay and spend local, it can also be difficult to decide where in the UK to take your family. If you’re in two minds about where to take your summer staycation, here is a guide of popular destinations that will help to separate the breath-taking scenes of the Welsh mountains, the Scottish highlands and the Cornish beaches.


With stunning coastlines, picturesque harbours and sandy beaches, it is no surprise that families are choosing Cornwall as their summer destination for 2021. With the area recently hosting the G7 summit, Cornwall also has plenty of attractions including hiking on Bodmin Moor, tours around the creepy Bodmin Goal, plenty of castles for fans of historical buildings and the world famous Eden Project.


Edinburgh is a charming city with plenty of quirky café’s, hidden streets and beauty spots. The history of Edinburgh Castle spans back to ancient times and has been a royal residence for many centuries. The Scottish Highlands are also a beautiful place to visit especially if you’re a keen hiker.


While many might think of choosing North Wales for Prestatyn and Llandudno, the town of Abersoch is located on the coast with dramatic beaches perfect for taking part in watersports. If you enjoy jet skiing or cycling, this could be an ideal way to spend a week.


Yorkshire has something for everyone – Large, vibrant cities, countryside’s to explore, beaches and plenty of activities for the family. Whether it’s the North York Moors National Park, or visiting the seaside town of Whitby, Yorkshire is steeped in history and is the perfect place to spend a week exploring with family.

Lake District

The Lake District has been a regular staycation destination for many years now and is a fantastic place to visit if you’re looking for stunning scenes and to be closer to nature. There are 16 lakes with Windermere forming the central part of the District and the beautiful market town of Kendall close by with plenty of shops, restaurants and hotels for you to enjoy.
