It is often overlooked, but there is so much you can see and do on your own doorstep in the United Kingdom. We understand that many people will prefer to avoid public transport or aircraft in the coming months, so why not drive yourself for a boating holiday, or a private cottage in the countryside away from the hustle and bustle of normal life. Here are a few ideas for themed breaks close to home:
The UK has some of the most scenic railway journeys, so why not incorporate one of these into a short break in this country - The North York Moors, Rheilfford Talyllyn Railway in Wales, North Norfolk Railway, Jacobite and West Highland in Scotland.
We work with a number of specialist tour operators including Ramblers and Headwater. They have a wide selection of walking, rambling and hiking holidays throughout the UK - for a number of different abilities.
Take to the waterways on your own riverboat or canal barge this summer, taking a more leisurely turn of speed in stunning locations. Like a villa or cottage, you are self-contained and can maintain social distancing within your own unit.
Explore the beautiful countryside on two wheels on either a self guided or group cycling tour around many parts of the country - including the Cotswolds, Yorkshire and Northumberland.
Drawing and painting with small groups, together with rambling and walking in scenic locations.
Capture the beauty of the UK through the lens, on a number of photography based holidays hosted by an expert guide. Take in the wonderful scenery as well as visiting inspiring country houses and monuments.
Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi retreats around the UK combined with other pursuits such as Nordic Walking, Hiking, and Meditation - something for mind, body, and soul.
We can book a wide portfolio of singular cottages, houses, and apartments all around the country. Anything from one bedroom to over ten, and some with their own swimming pool, games room and outdoor space.
We have sold holidays in the UK for years. Whether you are looking for a coastal break at one of our wonderful seaside towns, or a rural escape, maybe a boat on a canal or a photography break - there is something in this country for everyone.
