There’s plenty to see in the UK, from Cornwall, Snowdonia, Edinburgh, and Cotswolds, to eating at Michelin-starred restaurants, having a pre-planned girls’ spa trip for some relaxing massages and scented oils, a stag trip with lots of raucous laughter, or a family getaway with garden hot tubs.
Irrespective of which holiday style you plan, how many days you want to stay, or if it’s just a day trip, you should opt for some staycation ideas that will help you see the UK to the fullest. Considering all the options for visitors, excellent properties, holiday homes, and more, the UK has increased in tourism with some dreamy vacation spots that offer all the comforts of high-end resort and hotel chains, with the feeling of being at home.
Michelin experience in Oxfordshire:
The Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Oxfordshire is the baby of celebrated chef Raymond Blanc. This restaurant is one of the UK’s top-rated Michelin dining experiences that everyone should try at least once. Blanc has prepared a magnificent seven-course dining menu in the main restaurant with tours of the garden. This experience also includes a trip into the kitchen garden (from where they source the fresh produce) and a Japanese garden which is drop-dead gorgeous.
People wishing to relax can also opt for luxurious bedrooms to extend their stay and enjoy a Michelin experience that offers the best food and living options. Close enough to London to not feel remote, the hotel feel is a fabulous break for foodies who want to live a good life for a few days. Many couples also choose this staycation as a proposal option to make the event even more memorable.
Destination Spa in Leicestershire:
If you want to plan a relaxing, spa-style staycation, luxurious Ragdale Hall should be your first preference. This blissful spa is in a country-style setting with several excellent treatment options for singles, couples, and groups. Not only is it uber-luxurious and relaxing, but also incredibly peaceful and tranquil. Ragdale Hall makes you feel pampered, close to nature, and extremely happy.
One of the best features of Ragdale Hall is the stunning rooftop infinity pool. It is also an old-style Victorian construct with excellent healthy food options cooked by some fantastic chefs. There are plenty of stay and travel options where you can avail of package deals, including visits, travel, and treatments.
Enjoy the Seaside at Cornwall:
Who doesn’t enjoy lounging by the seaside? Cornwall is the place to experience some of the UK’s most spectacular seaside spots, with options for surfing and swimming to your heart’s content. The laid back atmosphere of Cornwall, excellent food options, and gorgeous interiors of The Idle Rocks are definitely worth visiting.
The Idle Rocks at Cornwall offer serene interiors, nautical décor, and a beach-chic vibe. They also have a gorgeous terrace where you can relax with some sundowner cocktails as you enjoy the smell of the salty sea. What’s more, is that most places in Cornwall are family and pet-friendly. However, they are also great for solo travellers and couples wishing to escape the hustle-bustle and stresses of daily life and work.
Luxury Yacht Experience in Scotland:
When most people think of Scotland, they only presume dazzling lochs, magical castles, and rolling hills. Many forget that the sea is the best place to be when in Scotland. While exploring Scotland by land, you should never forget the maritime experiences. Scotland has several luxurious boutique yacht experiences for staycations. You can easily book a private yacht and crew for a few days and invite close friends and loved ones (if you want).
There are exclusive yacht trips that you can book to take you around the Scottish Isles so you can disembark, visit Loch Ness (and maybe search for the Loch Ness monster), and see the Isles of Skye, Fort William, Eigg, and the Sound of Mull. You can also easily venture into the many coastal towns, spot some Scottish wildlife, grab the world-famous Scottish whiskey at one of the many local pubs and click plenty of photographs to make your trip memorable.
When it comes to staycations, the UK has some fabulous experiences. If these options aren’t enough, you could also consider resting in the stunning Peak District, opt for a treehouse stay, and take a quick break in one of the many holiday homes and townhouses in busy London.
