We’ve already looked at ways in which you can turn your home into a staycation resort, but sometimes that doesn’t quite cut the mustard. Cabin fever could have well and truly set in regardless of your home’s layout, which only a complete change of scenery can fix. It’s certainly the case for some people anyway.

 

A staycation in the UK has become an increasingly popular option this year, especially given the various travel restrictions put in place, but also because having a staycation is kinder on the wallet and just as memorable. Obviously, the Great British weather could potentially have its say, but if you assess your options and go to places when the weather is meant to be fine, then you should have a great trip for all of the family.

 

With winter setting in, though, here’s a look at some worthwhile destinations for the rest of the year ahead, but also well into next year too when the sun will be back shining, and the beaches deserve our attention once again. Of course, you might be a complete nutcase with a real desire to sunbathe on a Cornish beach in December, but that isn’t for everyone. Regardless, we’ve got you covered.

 

Jurassic Coast, England

 

Whether you’re keen to go for a summer swim or a winter camping adventure, the Jurassic Coast is a fantastic option. Stretching from Exmouth in East Devon to Studland Bay in Dorset, it is one of the most attractive coastlines in the world. From hiking, surfing, relaxing on the beach with a book or a Who Wants to Be a Millionaire game online available for English players, the Jurassic Coast has you covered. Perhaps historically stunning towns like Lyme Regis are your bag, too? There are so many options.


Snowdonia, Wales

 

Keen to immerse you and your family in nature and experience the great outdoors in arguably the most stunning location in the country? Then look no further than Snowdonia, the New Zealand of the UK. Boasting the highest mountain in England and Wales, and the largest natural lake in Wales, Snowdonia possesses natural beauty and a landscape hard to find elsewhere in the country. If hiking isn’t your thing, then you can take in all of the sights on the train.

 

York, England

 

A stunning and picture-perfect city, York is a popular destination for visitors throughout the year. Thanks to its independent shops and its medieval walls, York is a quirky place full of friendly and welcoming people. The city has several historical sights accompanied by modern bars and venues to enjoy. If shopping and sight-seeing isn’t your bag, then the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors are nearby too.

 


 

Edinburgh, Scotland

 

Edinburgh is a city with lots on offer, from its annual Fringe Festival to its array of whiskeys to try. There’s a zoo worth visiting also, alongside a whole host of restaurants to eat some stunning local cuisine in too. Overall, Edinburgh is an energetic city with a real buzz, especially for the family to enjoy. The locals are friendly too, which helps.

 

Ballycastle, Northern Ireland

 

If you’re keen to take the family on the road trip of a lifetime, then make sure you circle Ballycastle on your map. Located in the north-easternmost coastal tip of Ireland, Ballycastle is relatively unknown to people so therefore comes with smaller crowds than other popular destinations. It offers everything you need from a picturesque and stunning seaside location, though. The restaurants and pubs are worth trying, alongside taking in the stunning Kibane Castle. Ballycastle really is a true gem of a place.
