Looking ahead to summer 2021, it’s looking like staycations are going to be the new normal for this year. From solo travelers to couples or full families, there’s something for everyone.
With it looking less likely that there will be any holidays abroad this year, there are plenty of locations up and down the length of the UK, you might want to visit. So, we’re here today to share with you three of our top locations for a family-friendly staycation this summer.
Devon is a great place for all the family with plenty to do, from beaches to museums and zoos to water sports, so there is something for family members of all ages to do. Devon is located in the South West of England, complete with towering white cliffs, plenty of sandy beaches, and moorland. Devon is a natural beauty that attracts visitors from all over the country all year round.
Why not set up base in one of the main picturesque waterside towns Devon offers and use your time to keep the whole family occupied at one of the area’s many attractions.
Crealy Great Adventure Park offers 100 acres of rides and attractions for the thrill-seekers, while Exmoor Zoo or Totnes Rare Breeds Farm can keep any animal lovers happy. For the older amongst you or those who love history, there are several National Trust Devon locations to visit, such as Powderham Castle or the Beer Quarry Caves.
The West Midlands is perfect for a family staycation, and you aren’t going to be disappointed with what you find here. For the perfect family day out, why not take your little ones to visit Cadbury World, dedicated to the world’s most famous chocolate brand and the perfect place for chocoholics of any age.
Animal lovers will be wowed at Twycross Zoo or the West Midland Safari park, where you can see a whole host of amazing animals, sure to keep your kids occupied for hours on end. Or, let them burn off their energy at Unit3sixty Indoor Skatepark, or maybe Boing Zone, an indoor trampoline park.
And of course, no staycation would be complete without the perfect place to relax when the days are winding down, so why not consider a place that’s got it all – such as The Belfry Hotel and Resort in Sutton Coldfield is the perfect place for families looking to book a staycation this summer. There are family activities and play parks, woodland walks, and even a swimming pool to keep the whole family entertained.
Lancashire has always been considered one of the best family holiday destinations in the UK, and for a good reason. Perhaps most notably is because Lancashire is home to the world-famous resort of Blackpool. Blackpool is a fantastic place to staycation with the family as there are plenty of attractions to suit all ages.
To name but a few, there’s the Pleasure Beach theme park, Blackpool tour, Sealife Centre, Madame Tussauds, Blackpool Zoo, Blackpool dungeons, many arcade and piers, and several miles of sandy beach. If that’s not enough, there are also plenty of places to shop, grab a meal, and even nightclubs for the adults to keep you entertained.
We know that this last year has been tough and that many of you have likely had to give up on the hopes of a summer holiday. However, with summer 2021 on the horizon, now is the perfect time to be planning your ideal summer staycation. We hope with these three destinations, and we have been able to give you a starting point or some inspiration for your next family getaway.
