Staycations And A Holiday In The UK This Summer

Holiday in the UK - Cornwall Self Catering

Unfortunately, due to a number of things that have happened over the past 12 months, we’re not able to do any of the travelling we had planned for this year. However that doesn’t mean I’ll be staying home, no way! There are so many travel opportunities right on your doorstep with a holiday in the UK and I’ve been planning as much as possible for us to get away from home and see some of the world, even if that does mean staying in the country.

Holiday in the UK - Pet Friendly Cottages

Diane from Bimblebox asked me to share their cute info graphic with you guys and she has so many great reasons why a self catered cottage is great way to spend your holiday days this year and loads of them resonate with me personally:

// Saving money on a holiday in the UK will allow us to put aside a bit extra for next year to really go big on our travel plans. Our international travels may have fallen through this year, but they’re not gone for good. There’s always next time!

// Health wise, things have been up in the air recently and staying in the UK this Summer means we won’t have to worry about travel insurance or being too far from medication and hospitals.

// Because the Frank Monster is a rescue dog, we have a solid ‘no kennels’ rule so we have to work our travels around being able to get a dog-sitter. Hiring a pet-friendly cottage in the UK would not only mean we don’t have to worry about organising someone to look after him, but would also allow us to enjoy a holiday with him too instead of just weekend days out in the local park!

// The blissful peace and quiet of being completely alone is totally my thing. Travelling to an off-the-beaten-track cottage with a bunch of friends, plenty of wine and good food sounds like my dream holiday. If you’re organised enough, you won’t need to see another human being all week ;)

The UK has so many amazing places to discover such as Cornwall’s picturesque beaches or the wonderful nature & wildlife in Cumbria. I’ve spent a lot of time travelling up and down the country and there are so many awesome hidden gems, coffee shops, markets, boutiques and photo opportunities that are so close to home. There’s a whole bunch of places that I’m gutted to only have ever been to once, never mind all the wonders that I’m still yet to discover. I’m excited about spending this Summer exploring the UK!

If these are not good enough reasons for you to stay home and have a holiday in the UK, make sure you have a peek at Bimblebox’s info graphic below:

Offcuts: A Cumbrian Safari

Cumbria Wildlife
I mentioned last week that I spent some time in Cumbria earlier this year. I’m such a city girl, it’s ridiculous (cityscapes over countryside any day!) but being this close to nature and wildlife made me feel like a child, bounding through the Cumbrian fields and chatting to a Donkey like an old friend – look at those ears! It was the perfect opportunity for me to flex my photography and feel freshly inspired away from my laptop. My favourite discovery was the tree stump pig, below! Haha.
