Off The Beaten Track: Unique Staycations In The UK
13/07/2022 12:00 AM 0



If that sounds like your situation, keep reading, because it’s an ideal time to book a staycation. No passport needed, possibly a bit of sun, and plenty to keep the entire family amused.

While we’re all familiar with the big tourist spots around the UK (yes Devon and Cornwall, everyone knows how lovely and picturesque you are), what about some of our lesser-known attractions?

In this quick guide, we’ve pulled together a whistle-stop tour of some of the UK’s most unique holiday locations.


1)    Come top seaside area in Kent


What we consider is the best holiday destination in the UK. Come to Thanet in Kent with the seaside towns of Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate. Easy to get to by train or road. A wealth of blue flag sandy beaches, Dreamland Amusement park with its thrills and spills, An amazing art gallery with the sunsets made famous by JW Turner,A Royal Harbour and a Bay where Charles Dickens was inspired. Take a tour using our panoramic system  click here  and plan the best holiday ever. 

2)    High Force, Durham, England

Despite being one of the most impressive waterfalls (yes, the UK has waterfalls, who knew?) in the country, this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is often overlooked by staycationers.

The waterfall is approximately 21m high and genuinely breathtaking. Enjoy guided walks, luxury accommodation nearby and lots of places to visit in the local area.

3)    Loch Awe, Argyll and Bute, Scotland

Forget the Lake District, everyone goes there. How about visiting the longest lake in Scotland instead? At 24 miles, you might spot the occasional fisherman but that’ll be about it. It’s a stunning location for a family holiday surrounded by a rugged landscape and teeming with wildlife.

4)    Tyneham, Dorset, England

Fancy a spooky summer break? This historical village is home to… absolutely no one, it’s completely deserted. Enjoy eerily quiet walks around crumbling buildings and empty houses. Perfect if you’re looking to get away from the crowds. And for something a bit different, the next day, why not jump in the car and visit one of Dorset’s many seaside towns? In less than an hour, you can be in busy Bournemouth for a completely different holiday experience.

5)    Pembrokeshire, Wales

There are so many beautiful Welsh beaches to visit along this stretch of coast, picking just one was impossible. In fact, Pembrokeshire has a whopping 10 Blue Flag beaches (basically the best of the best). Soft sand, miles and miles of blue sea, rockpools, luxury accommodation… there’s just too much to ooh and ahh about.

If you’re looking for an experience rather than an actual area, how about searching for quirky accommodation? A few nights in a treehouse, lighthouse or shepherd’s hut could be great fun for everyone. 

From all of us at Cooke & Co Estate and Letting Agents we hope you have an excellent summer and enjoy a well-deserved break.
