Why staycations are on the rise in the UK

Holidaying within the UK, rather than jumping on a flight, is becoming more and more popular as the years go by.

With many opting to explore what the UK has to offer, whilst also reducing their carbon footprint, the perfect place to stay in the UK has become the top searched thing for many people. More specifically, those wanting to get away from the mundane nine to five, take the kids away during the half term breaks or simply find the perfect destination for a weekend getaway with a loved one.

By planning a staycation rather than a trip abroad, there’s no need to worry about printing boarding passes, getting to the airport on time or if your flight will be delayed or cancelled, or if your passport is in date enough to abide by the rules and restrictions of your destination – you simply need to pack the car with your bits and go! (Or get the train!)

Many people looking to book a staycation have looked into holidays in Cornwall with Away Resorts, as they offer holiday packages within their parks in ideal locations near the beach and tourist attractions. However, there are many places across the Cornish landscape offering holiday packages to those looking for a staycation in the south-west coast.

But why should your next staycation be in Cornwall?


Cornwall is home to crystal clear waters that crash towards the shoreline, perfect for any water sports enthusiast, as well as high cliffs and countryside ideal for any keen rambler. Not to mention, the tasty treats for all budding foodies that come to visit. Cornwall certainly offers something for everyone that decides to have a staycation here.

  • Beaches

Known for its golden, sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters, did you know there are over 300 beaches to be discovered along the Cornish coastline? Many Brits have also compared many beaches found in Cornwall to those found overseas, with some of the beaches found here regarded as some of the greatest – not just in the UK, but the entire world.

  • Food

Cornwall is known for its iconic Cornish pasties and cream teas, where the jam is first to be spread on the warm scone, then the clotted cream.

If this wasn’t enough to persuade you to visit Cornwall, if you’re a lover of seafood and shellfish, it couldn’t be fresher than when you’re dining by the Cornish Sea. With the likes of Cornish crab, lobster, muscles, oysters, scallops, Cornish rainbow trout, lemon sole and so many others freshly caught, experiencing the taste of freshly caught seafood is one to try when in Cornwall.

  • Attractions

There’s plenty for you to do when in Cornwall, such as – exploring The Eden Project, rambling through the countryside and clifftops along the trails open to all, touring cyder farms that produce the very best Cornish cyder, taking part in water sports within the Atlantic waves that roll towards the shore – and so much more!

So, will Cornwall be your next place to escape the mundane nine-to-five, as a couple, with family or with a group of friends? Will you be one of the many households opting for a staycation over a trip abroad?
