Will you Choose England, Wales, Scotland or Ireland for Your Holiday This Year?

Thinking of ideas of places to discover on your summer holiday this year or for a short break at some point? Many of us like to jet off somewhere where good weather is guaranteed at least once a year but lots of us also like to discover fantastic places during a staycation in the UK. Whether you have just a few days available or a week or more, the UK has plenty of fantastic destinations to choose from.

What Makes Great Britain So Great

Who can blame us for wanting to spend time in our home country? There is so very much that makes Great Britain great and all of the countries that make up the UK have their own unique draws which attract visitors. When the sun is shining on our definitely green and pleasant land there really is no better place. Who can beat sitting out in an English country garden and enjoying an Afternoon Tea with the sun on your back? Or meandering along one of our beautiful beaches with the dog or marvelling in the views once you’ve reached the summit of one our majestic fells or hills? Whether you tend to return to the same part of the UK year after year or are just looking for ideas, we aim to make you think about the possibility of discovering new places in our truly beautiful country.

The land of big skies, friendly locals and nature in abundance, Scotland is wonderful for remote holidays and for discovering the magnificence of nature. Whether you want to feast your eyes on mountains, lochs, sea or sky, Scotland will not disappoint. Wonderful wildlife in this fine country include deer, squirrels and even wild cats, and that’s not the mention the resident population of dolphins in the Moray Firth or the whales that can be spotted in the seas around the Scottish Islands.

With so many beautiful quintessentially English villages and towns with splendid historical buildings, parklands, hills, heaths and areas of outstanding natural beauty, there is much charm to be found in England, plus National Parks and a stunning coastline. Reasonably highly populated, finding remote hideaways in England is still possible and there are plenty of wonderfully rural locations to discover but perhaps without the remoteness to be found in Ireland, Scotland and Wales, which suits those looking to experience a bit of peace and tranquillity with the added benefit of having the hustle and bustle of busier places within reasonably easy reach.


Undoubtedly best known for its National Parks, Mountains and Coastline, Wales promises vast areas of unspoilt countryside along with ample opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. A mecca for outdoors enthusiasts, Wales offers plenty of adrenaline pumping activities as well as more sedate options like walking. Whatever you want to do on holiday, Wales can be wonderful for getting out and exploring the great outdoors.


Ireland is renowned for its magic and with vast unspoilt landscapes and big skies, loughs and rivers it really isn’t surprising. Add to this the Irish sense of humour, great music, fascinating legends and a European feel and Ireland has plenty to recommend it. Just when will you discover Ireland on an Irish cottage break?

Wherever you choose to visit in the UK, you can be assured that there are some great options open to you. Just where will you discover next?
