Some of the best staycation spots in the UK

Whether you’re looking to save a bit of money or as a family you enjoy venturing around the UK, staycation’s are a great option for a family getaway, especially in 2020. No matter how much you enjoy your house, we’re all in need of an escape and a chance to forge some life-long memories in the process. It’s important.

There’s ultimately only so many things we can do to keep the family entertained before a change of scenery and a new schedule for a week or so is required. It can be easy for the kids to get lost in a Netflix series or us Mum’s to indulge in a few games from when in reality a staycation, be it for a week or even a weekend, will provide the family with far more in return. Exploring the country you live in is appealing, but so too is having fun and frolics with the family. It’s a lot kinder on the wallet also and certainly involves far less hassle than a trip abroad.

So, in case you’re in need of some staycation inspiration, here’s a look at some of the best options in the UK for you and your family.

Snowdonia, Wales

Compared to New Zealand by some, Snowdonia in North Wales is full of natural beauty. It’s impossible not to feel immersed in nature when you’re there, with its breathtaking views and stunning scenery. Snowdonia has the largest natural lake in the country, as well as having the highest mountain in England and Wales too. If hiking isn’t your thing, then there’s a train you can get to see it all. Simply put, Snowdonia is stunning.

Padstow, England
