The lockdown has forced many of us to spend a lot more time in our homes than we are used to and this has presented a number of different challenges. In addition to the added strain, many find from working from home, the lack of a holiday to look forward to could be a reason to feel downtrodden. However, as things start the change and the lockdown starts to lift, we are going to be able to do more and more.
One of the ways that you could use up any building holiday allowance is through booking a staycation or weekend break in the UK. Below we have listed some of the locations that are, in our opinion, great for a weekend away post-lockdown. These are great places to stay no matter if you are hunkered up in a hostel or a fully serviced apartment.
- Enjoy the quiet beaches of Cornwall
Cornwall rests at the very end of the South West in the UK and offers some of the best views of the whole country. We recommend this as a weekend break after lockdown as it is a great way to enjoy some of the countryside that the south of the country has to offer. Towns like Truo and St Ives offer fantastic days out and can be reached by accommodation in various areas.
- Spend time in the bustling UK Capital
If you are looking for a livelier weekend away, then perhaps London could offer what you are looking for. The tall buildings and countless activities are a great way to spend time with family or friends and the best part is they can all be accessed by one of the worlds best public transport networks. If you are worried about the potential of contracting a virus while visiting the city, perhaps number 3 on our list would be the better option for you.
- Venture up to the Scottish Highlands for a weekend away
The Scottish Highlands are the stuff of legend and every year countless visitors go to take in the stunning scenery. Picking this popular destination for your UK weekend away will not only give you lots of open space to explore. We recommend booking your accommodation for this hotspot soon as it is likely to be one of the most popular tourist destinations in the near future.
- Visit the Welsh Countryside for a great escape
In addition to the Scottish Highlands, the Welsh Countryside also offers a wonderfully distanced way to unwind over a weekend break. Villages like Solva and Llangynidr are fantastic places to stay with plenty of serviced accommodations.
- Look at Bristol for a comfortable weekend break
One city that is situated close to Wales is Bristol. This bustling city offers a culturally diverse area to explore with a variety of different historical locations to visit. The other great part about staying in Bristol is the wide range of accommodation on offer. A weekend break here lets you pick from serviced apartments, hostels, hotels and B&Bs. The wide range of choice is why Bristol has made it onto the number 5 spot on our list.
Find the right accommodation for your post lockdown weekend break
Whilst the 5 locations shown on our list are great places to visit when the lockdown is lifted further, they must be coupled with a stay in the right accommodation type if you are to truly reap the rewards of your weekend away. Make sure you do your research online to try and maximise the chances of you finding the best accommodation choice for the style of break you are going for.
