With the summer holidays well underway and better weather reportedly on the horizon, the top 20 staycation destinations have been revealed

The top 20 staycation destinations in the UK have been revealed, as the popularity of staycations remains high. Research of 2,000 parents revealed the top 20 places to go for a brilliant holiday on home turf.

Some 45 per cent of those who were involved in the research admitted that they won’t go away with the kids without at least some access to a pool or the sea within a 10-mile radius.

The research delved into other areas, too. It found The Lake District was voted the best destination for value for money, followed by Cornwall and Devon. The research, commissioned by Premier Inn, found 53 per cent now go on more staycations than holidays abroad.

A spokesperson for Premier Inn said: “With so many amazing places to visit in the UK this summer, we’re happy to give parents some inspiration.

“It can be hard choosing the right places that are suitable for everyone, which is why it’s great that a lot of these places are just a car journey away.

“Not only do staycations promote relaxation and rejuvenation, but they also empower us to support our local communities and appreciate the wonders that lie just beyond our own front doors.

“So, let’s embark on a journey of exploration, right where we are, and unlock the glorious sights of our home sweet home.”
