Enjoy a hassle free holiday and soak up the un-ending culture and history that can be found around on a UK holiday

Holidaying in the UK is becoming increasingly popular, with a never ending list of historical places in the UK to visit, as well as the draw of a hassle-free break in luxury surroundings.

Darwin Escapes offers luxurious self-catering holidays in the UK, with destinations all over the country. Many of our locations are home to 5 star facilities, including onsite spa’s offering Aromatherapy Associates treatments, state of the art gyms, indoor tropically heated swimming pools, as well as children’s entertainment and full Go Active + programmes, along with award-winning restaurants.
But there are so many reasons to holiday in the UK and take advantage of the hassle free holidays, here are our top 7 reasons…

No Pet Left Behind

If you have a fur-baby, holidaying abroad can become a chore, with the cost of kennels almost as expensive as you break away. But with a holiday in the UK your furry friend can join in on the fun too, as nearly all our locations are pet friendly! You can explore the local and see all the amazing places to visit in the UK with your dog in tow!

No Airport Stress

Imagine a holiday where you don’t have to line in security, take your shoes and belt off, before having to sit in an airport for up to 3 hours, desperately trying to find something to do. Airports are a nightmare, they extend travel time by 4 hours, meaning you often have to book an extra day or two just for travelling! A UK holiday means your travel time is more than halved, with 20 holiday destinations around the UK, Darwin Escapes has the ideal destination just a couple of hours drive away!

No Car Hire Problems

We’ve all hired a car, though we got a good deal, then reach the desk to pick the keys up and somethings gone wrong. Whether it’s the car is smaller than you thought, that there’s no petrol, you’ve been charged extra for something or it isn’t what you thought it would be. With a UK holiday you can take your own car, that reliable beauty you love and know, costing you less and giving you piece of mind that you’ll enjoy your journey on your holidays.

Hassle-Free Holidays

A UK holiday means less stress, as well as the travel/waiting time dropping, your packing is easier because you don’t have to worry about weight limits. You don’t have to worry about your passports or travel documents, all you need is yourself and your driving licence to check-in and you can sit back and enjoy your hassle-free holidays.

Personal Space

Going on holiday abroad often means cramming as many friends and family into one hotel room as you can to save on costs. Holidaying in the UK is a completely different experience, with some of our stunning lodges sleeping up to 8 people, everyone has their own space to relax and enjoy their time away. There are always enough sumptuously soft beds for everyone, as well as family sized bathrooms and ensuites, so there’s never a que for the shower!

Home Cooked Meals

With our luxury self-catering facilities, including fully fitted kitchens, with integrated fridge/freezer, oven and even coffee machines, it will feel like a real home from home. You can enjoy a deliciously home cooked meal, with chilled wine from the built-in wine cooler, and you won’t need to worry about the washing up with the integrated dishwashers. Alternatively treat yourself and enjoy a mouth-watering meal at one of our onsite restaurants, we have a variety of meals including family favourites, pizza and burgers, to unpretentious fine dining for a romantic meal out with your loved one.
