When we think about going on holiday, our mind conjures thoughts of drinking exotic beverages in faraway lands lying on glorious golden sand. We then begin to think about the cost of enjoying such luxuries and the images soon disappear. You can be forgiven for forgetting that there are some fantastic holidays to be had within the UK.
In the South West of England you’ll find the gorgeous counties of Devon, Cornwall, and Somerset. Here you’ll find some of the best beaches in the world. Newquay in particular is widely acknowledged as the home of surfing in the UK. If surfing is not your thing, then the beaches here offer plenty of space for building the biggest sandcastles. In the South west you’ll find a range of accommodation that suits all needs and tastes.
On the South Coast you’ll find the beautiful county of Dorset. There is so much local charm to be found in the picturesque villages here and they are as perfect in the winter as they are in the summer. If you want to enjoy an active break, then you could try walking along the Jurassic coast and discovering over 200 million years of history.
If you head over the border into the enchanting country of Wales you’ll find rolling, emerald hills that are perfect for exploring, but beware, there may be a giant or two lurking around the corner. Also, it may be surprising to find out that Wales is also home to 42 blue flag beaches, an honour bestowed upon only the cleanest and safest beaches.
Remember that holidays do not have to cost the earth, and you are able to enjoy the perfect stay-cation in Wales and the South West of England.
