Forget going abroad this year and choose a UK holiday instead

Due to the current economic crisis more and more people are choosing to stay at home and enjoy a UK holiday. To avoid rising petrol costs you don't have to travel far from home to reach beautiful countryside and stunning beaches. If you live in Manchester the Peak District is less than an hour away. Bristol has easy access to Devon and Cornwall, while Cardiff is only a stone's throw away from the Gower. Edinburgh and Glasgow have lochs and mountains on the doorstep. If you're a Londoner then the south coast is your summer playground.

Types of UK holidays

Whether you want a vibrant city break or to escape to a cosy cottage in the country, www.letsstay.co.uk is all about holidays in the UK. Let's Stay UK has a vast range of UK based holiday ideas such as self catering cottages, holiday parks, hotels, farm stays, and even narrowboat holidays. Whatever you fancy they will more than likely have it. You can search by the area of the country you want to visit or look for suitable holidays by type. A farm holiday at Stowe Farm B&B near Marlow, Buckinghamshire, costs £55 per person per night for a double room.

If you want to enjoy the British countryside then there are thousands of camping and caravanning sites throughout the UK. Take a look at www.ukcampsite.co.uk. If you want to get back to nature but still sleep, eat and relax in comfort then there are four Center Parcs Holiday Villages in the UK (www.centerparcs.co.uk).

What to do on UK holidays

The one thing that's not guaranteed with a UK holiday is the weather. But at least the UK is geared up for soggy summers. Whether you choose to stay in a cottage, hotel or in a caravan, you won't be bored. The UK has countless castles, National Trust properties, theme parks, train rides and museums to keep the whole family entertained - whatever the weather.
