So with luxury holidays only a few hours’ drive away, no airport hassle and fabulous facilities, we’ve got the top 5 reasons a staycation in the UK is the best idea for you…

The Best Beaches for Sandcastles

Did you know that Britain actually has the best sandy beaches for building sandcastles in the world?! Well we do, and Darwin Escapes has a number of locations near sandy beaches, including Talacre Beach Holiday Home Park in North Wales and Beach Cove Coastal Retreat in Devon. So pack your bucket and spade, pick your UK beach holiday and enjoy your staycation!

So Many Historic Attractions

The UK is a country full of culture and history, with endless monuments and historic attractions throughout. Including a range of Medieval Castles, especially near our North Wales destinations, as well as Roman Runes and towns that date back to the doomsday book. There will always be something to explore and discover during your staycation.

Events All Year Round

The UK is home to a calendar of a huge variety of events, including world renowned music festivals, like Glastonbury, huge literacy festivals such as Hay Week and smaller fetes, fairs and the ever popular Christmas Markets. So whether you’re looking for a village fete, international music festival or a Medieval festival, there will be an event for you to enjoy on a weekend staycation with Darwin Escapes.

Diversity of the Country

Are you looking for an adventure filled holiday? Or maybe a relaxing beach break? Perhaps you’d like both! Well a staycation is the ideal holiday for you, if you stay at New Pines Holiday Home Park, in North Wales, you can soak up the sun on Rhyl’s sandy beach one day, while scaling the walls of the Snowdonia Mountain Range the next. The UK has one of the most diverse landscapes waiting to be discovered and explore on your staycation.

No One Left Behind

A staycation often offers the freedom of taking your fur-baby! So if you’re looking for pet friendly holidays, a staycation could be the best idea for you, and with Darwin Escapes’ luxurious, self-catering lodge’s we have the ideal destination for your pup! There are a number of pet friendly attractions throughout the UK, including pubs, garden centres and stately homes, as well as dog friendly restaurants becoming more popular.

The bar area in the 5 star, award-winning facilities are also dog friendly, so you can enjoy a relax drink with your pup by your side.
