Are you looking for reasons for considering a staycation this year? Travelling abroad can be stressful for adults, and once you throw children and pets into the mix, it can quickly spiral into a logistical nightmare. From dealing with travel sized toiletries to heavy luggage and navigating the perils of the airport, it can be a taxing affair – both on your mind and wallet! From stunning scenery to award-winning beaches and family attractions, the UK has so much to offer when it comes to family holidays. Here are some reasons why you should consider a staycation this year.

Easy travel

Thanks to the UK’s compact size, you’re never too far away from luscious landscapes and vibrant seaside resorts. Whether you’re travelling to Carmarthenshire in Wales or West Bay in Dorset, there’s no need to worry about the hassle of changing currency, luggage restrictions or forgetting the passports… Simply pack up the car with everything you need – from your favourite bottle of wine to the children’s best-loved toys. Plus, you can enjoy the convenience of being able to stop whenever you need to along the way!

We all love a trip to the seaside… Spending our days building sandcastles, jumping over waves and enjoying ice cream on the soft sands. You don’t have to travel halfway across the world to reach paradise, and some of the best beaches are right here. From the gentle waters of Whitley Bay in the North East to the soft sands of Polzeath in Cornwall, these beaches have to meet strict criteria, including everything from water quality to environmental management – so you’re guaranteed an amazing Great British seaside holiday.

Save money

A major reason for considering a staycation is that it can save you £££’s, meaning you can treat the family to more holidays throughout the year. Remove the cost of flights, transfers and transport and you’ll find yourself paying a fraction of the cost, with plenty left over for fun days out exploring some of the UK’s best attractions – from the seaside resort of Great Yarmouth to historic Sweetheart Abbey in Scotland or the history of Plymouth! What’s more, self-catering means the whole family can be fed and watered without breaking the bank, and you can still treat yourself to a fantastic family meal or two during your holiday.

Stunning scenery
