Forget Going Abroad, The UK is Place to Holiday This Year – Family Holidays in the UK

There has never been a better time to book your family holiday in the UK; the recession is biting, the pound in your pocket buys you less in Europe than it did last year, and the weather for this summer is looking good…

Due to the exchange rate of the Euro, the pound will now buy you less in the Euro zone than at his time last year; this effectively means that holidays to the Euro zone will cost more. Adding inflation into the mix too and the result is that some holidays can be up to a third more expensive than they were last year.

Why go to the hassle of going abroad anyway? As anyone who has travelled overseas with children before will tell you, holidaying abroad is not always the relaxing experience you would expect it to be – delayed flights, ill children and crowded airports can all add up to grumpy parents.

Why not make this the year to stay in the UK? Many people have decided to stay in the UK this year. Infact the UK holiday sector is one of the few which is bucking the recession and seeing an increase in sales; because we all still need a holiday, right?

If you haven’t stayed at a holiday parks in the UK for a while; you are sure of a pleasant surprise. Many holiday parks now have facilities that will make your jaw drop! Just take a look at holiday parks like Bluestone in Wales. This park is one of the new parks being developed in the UK, and comes with all the modern facilities you would want, including a in indoor sub-tropical water park, pub, restaurant, café, shop, walks, health and beauty spa, clubs for the children, sports club and cycle hire. What more could ask for from a holiday park? Or go for a quieter style of holiday park, a park like Black Hall Lodges in Shropshire have just a few lodges, each with its own hot tub.

Holiday cottages are another way to enjoy the great British countryside. Britain has thousands of holiday cottages. Most holiday cottages are individually owned, giving each cottage its own unique style and charm. Spend a week discovering the delights of the mountains of Scotland, or the beaches in Devon and Cornwall, you’ll never want to holiday abroad again!
