Travel agents have seen bookings for spring breaks and getaways increase by 35% thanks to the extra bank holiday for the royal wedding. Despite the hype surrounding the wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, which is to take place on the 29th April this year, the figures show that most Brits plan on getting away from it all rather than joining in with wedding fever.
Because of the wedding and the way the Easter break falls there will be two four day weekends in succession in April; making it the perfect opportunity for a long weekend away. With the price of airfares at an all time high why not take advantage of the holiday spots and tourist destinations within the UK. Here are the top spots to take a ‘Staycation’:
Log cabins and cottages by the water in Scotland allow you to get away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life. These rustic log cabins and cottages are set in breathtaking countryside and Scottish Highland surroundings, offering you excellent panoramic mountain views and a scenic rural escape. A number of the log cabins come equipped with an outdoor hot tub, enabling you to relax under the stars. Or for outdoor types, you can take advantage of the highland countryside settings and go for leisurely riverside and loch side walks and picnics, or even a spot of boating and fishing if you prefer.
The Norfolk Broads is one of the country’s most scenic areas boasting wild natural beauty and is a haven for wildlife. It is well known for its excellent fishing and boat building traditions with a number of navigable rivers connecting a series of pretty Broads and quiet quaint villages, creating one of the country’s largest interconnecting waterways. And it’s one of the country’s most popular boating grounds, offering its visitors an all together slower pace of life and a truly relaxing retreat.
