With spring on the horizon, now is a great time to start thinking about the Easter holidays as this is always a special time of the year and a good chance to spend quality time together as a family. A staycation is a lovely idea and there are many beautiful spots in the UK to consider which are perfect for a family vacation during this time of the year.
The county of Devon is fantastic during spring because it is incredibly beautiful but there is also a tremendous amount to see and do. Here you will find sandy beaches, medieval towns, towering cliffs and the historic Jurassic Coast. This area is known as the “English Riviera” and it is easy to see why.
This lively seaside town in the south of England is a great place for families as it has a fun, laid-back atmosphere with all kinds of fun places to go and things to see. The pier, Sealife Centre, arcade and beach are just a few ways to pass the time but it can also be nice simply to stroll the streets on a nice warm day and visit the independent cafes and stores. If you are visiting the south coast for your staycation then be sure to look into off peak tickets as you could save a fortune on train fare.
The Lake District
If you are a nature loving family then there is nowhere better than the Lake District. This breathtaking in the North West is an area of outstanding natural beauty with
gushing lakes, thick forests, dramatic mountain ranges and much more. The spring is a particularly enjoyable time of year here with endless walking opportunities.
Similarly, the Yorkshire Dales National Park is a nature lover’s paradise with thou-sands of square miles of rolling hills, valleys, moors and quaint villages. This means that there is a tremendous amount to explore but you can also enjoy time relaxing in the friendly and charming local villages.
Located in southwest Wales, Pembrokeshire is one of the most beautiful places in the UK but an area often undiscovered due to its location right at the tip of Wales. This also means that it is almost surrounded entirely by the sea with gorgeous sandy beaches, scenic coastal paths, wildlife parks and much more to explore.
Oxford is one of the UK’s most prestigious and attractive cities. It is a lively yet wel-coming city in south central England which is quite unlike any other city with many highlights to see, including the world-famous Oxford University.
The Easter holidays are a superb time for a staycation with the family. The UK is very beautiful at this time of year and there are places all around which have a huge amount to offer any family.
