As the summer holiday season is in full swing, you might be tempted by a last minute holiday. Picture the sun, sea and sand; lazy mornings and patisserie breakfasts; long balmy evenings and cocktails overlooking the sea…
Sounds like the perfect getaway doesn’t it?
There’s no need to travel far for a dreamy holiday like this, simply pack up the car and head to the UK county of Cornwall to enjoy a staycation.
We’ve compiled a list of our top 5 reasons to choose a staycation:
1. It’s more convenient
Planning a staycation can be much easier to organise than arranging a holiday abroad; there’s no flights or transfers to book, no money to exchange, no passports to remember and you don’t have to worry about squeezing everything into your suitcase! And for most, the travelling time is less, you can load the car, jump in and drive straight from your home to your holiday home.
2. You can bring your pets
If you’re a pet owner, then one of the greatest benefits of a staycation is the ease of being able to take your dog along with you. There’s no need to worry about a doggy passport, additional vaccinations or kennels; just pop them in the car and away you go.
3. Experience the country that you live in
When you live somewhere every day, you tend to take it for granted, taking time to enjoy the country you live in can be such a worthwhile experience. As a UK citizen, it's nice to be able to explore as much of the country as you can.
4. No language barriers
Travelling abroad can be daunting, especially if you don’t speak the language. By choosing a staycation, you won’t have to worry about any misunderstandings.
5. The scenery is just as beautiful, if not nicer!
We are lucky enough in Cornwall to be blessed with some of the most breath-taking scenery in the country, from sea views, to golden sands and rolling countryside. If you haven’t seen Cornwall for yourself, then make the most of a staycation and book yourself a holiday.
Choose a holiday in Cornwall and you’ll be able to enjoy days on the beach, trips to local attractions and landmarks, and exploring the quaint villages of Cornwall. With an abundance of high-end restaurants, local cafes, pasty shops and ice-cream parlours, you’ll never be far from some delicious local food. And you can feel good about supporting the UK economy too!
This summer, we’ve been fortunate enough to experience scorching temperatures and long sunny days. And with September just around the corner, you’ll be able to experience our Cornish Indian Summer, the weather’s mild and sunny with balmy evenings throughout the late summer weeks.
If you don't have time for a long holiday, then consider a short break; a trip to Cornwall is the perfect way to recharge your batteries!
