STAYCATION: WHERE TO HOLIDAY IN THE UK

The desire for a change of scene is strong. Here’s our staycation guide to where to holiday in the UK this summer.

 

After months of being locked up, summer is here and we’re looking for a holiday, probably in the UK so here’s our pick of staycation options.

 

SCOTT DUNN X GLENEAGLES

A first UK Scott Dunn Explorers Kids club has arrived at Gleneagles, home to an 850-acre playground set in teh rolling Ochil Hills. Launching on 1st August, the action-packed programme will offer wee ones from 4 months up to those in their mid-teens a brilliant range of activities and country pursuits in the great outdoors – the ultimate active summer staycation for all the family.

GAMBLEDOWN FARM

Deep in the Hampshire countryside, you’ll find a green oasis of luxuriously appointed safari tents. It’s a safe wonderland for kids to explore, with eggs to collect daily and farm tours by the owners. Plus you can feast on homegrown produce cooked on your BBQ each day.

HOME FARM GLAMPING

Another staycation favourite nearly fully booked is Home Farm Glamping. Snap up the last remaining yurts and have a fantastic, away-from-it-all adventure in the Hertfordshire countryside.

RETALLACK RESORT & SPA

Not far from Cornwall Airport Newquay, the culinary delights of Padstow and and the botanic wonders of the Eden Project, these timelessly stylish boutique-barns have a contemporary and globally luxurious sophistication, blending architectural design and new interiors styling. Perfect for a mini-break or extended holiday.

THE PIG HOTELS

You’ll have to get in quick to bag some nights away at one of The Pig’s gorgeous hotels. An eighth luxuriously appointed residence opens at the end of July with The Pig at Harlyn Bay near Padstow. July is almost fully booked and August is getting busy!

COWORTH PARK

If space and tranquillity are what you’re after, Coworth Park’s reopening will be music to your ears. Stunning interiors, delicious food and even polo lessons on the menu. And for kids, there’s a whole house with seven rooms dedicated to younger family members plus a den for teens.
