Traditional British seaside holiday back in fashion

The UK coastal areas are set to see an influx of holidaymakers heading to the regions this summer, as more Brits are planning to spend their summer holiday at a seaside location.

According to the results of the research, 58% of the 3000 people surveyed stated they will be heading to the coast.

The same research also found that us Brits will spend more than ever on our holidays, spending £729.80 on the breaks, which boosts the UK economy by almost £20bn.

In 2013, the same survey found just 31% of people visited a coastal location, which shows the rise in popularity of the seaside holiday.

Staycations

Over two-thirds (67%) of Britons are taking a staycation – also known as holidaying at home – this year, with the average British family taking a one-week holiday, with four short breaks throughout the rest of the year.

A fifth (19%) of families are taking a traditional two-week holiday in order to enjoy the attractions and sights that the UK has to offer. Nearly half of people say their holiday is one thing they refuse to cut back on, but holidaying at home offers great value for money.

Benefits

Holidaying in your own country does hold a number of benefits, many of which appeal more to holidaymakers than foreign holidays. For example, some benefits include:

  • Less stress – Going abroad means you have to stick to a rigid schedule of times for flights, transfers etc. When you holiday domestically, you do not experience these stresses.
  • Inexpensive – When compared to travelling abroad, changing of currencies, foreign travel insurance and other expenses, taking a British holiday is relatively inexpensive in comparison.
  • Set your own pace – There is usually a degree of rigidity to a holiday abroad, sticking to travel times and activity schedules, but with a staycation you can holiday exactly as you want to. If you want a lie in one day, or a late dinner the next, that is completely up to you! You control your own holiday and enjoy it however you see fit.

If the idea of a seaside staycation sounds appealing to you, why not take a look at one of our cottages in South Devon and enjoy one for yourself?

Walkies with Hedley

| 03rd December 2016 | Dog walks

Walkies with Hedley on a chilly November morning. The canal was frozen but the walk was lovely and a very festive Robin posed for the camera. The Ted Hughes Poetry Trail has been created at Stover Country Park to celebrate his poetry and long-standing links with Devon. Visitors to the Trail can read examples of Hughes’ finest poems relating to the natural world. These poems have been chosen with the help of Carol Hughes to relate to the wildlife to be seen and heard around the Country Park. The Park features sixteen specially-designed ‘poetry posts’, each displaying a poem by Ted Hughes on a theme relating to the natural world. There is also a short Children’s Poetry Trail which lets families share together some of Ted Hughes’ most memorable poems about the world of animals, some of which are illustrated by Raymond Briggs. Disabled Access, Dogs Allowed, Information Boards, Toilets, Visitor Centre, Walks, Access: Bus route available. Cycle and walk ways available. Hints and Tips: The park is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest primarily because of the dragonfly population. The best time to visit is during the summer months when the adult dragonflies are on the wing. For guests enjoying their holidays in Shaldon Devon it's approximately a 20 mins drive. Allow up to two hours to complete the full poetry trail, or follow shorter circuits to suit. ...
