Staycation, anyone?

Staycations are becoming increasingly popular among Brits. With no worries over exchange rates and passport control, travellers are increasingly choosing to explore the UK.

When looking into staycation trends from last year, there are 4 key areas of growth:

1) Active holidays – all age groups are looking for hiking, climbing and water sports during their time away. The Peak District is a hot spot for outdoor activities, with the Derbyshire countryside offering plenty of opportunities for walking and cycling holidays.
2) Pet-friendly – it’s no surprise that people are choosing to take their pooches along with them on holidays within the same country. Dog-friendly holiday cottages are a must for the staycation trend.
3) Hot tubs – more suitable for the British weather than swimming pools, hot tubs are another popular feature amongst all types of groups, from romantic getaways to hen parties.
4) Large groups – since 2014, reservations of holiday homes with 11+ bedrooms have almost trebled. Clearly another benefit of not flying abroad is the ability to invite a bigger group of friends and family.

Ashbourne Self-Catering, the holiday-let arm of Bondholder PMW Property has tailored its Derbyshire properties to fit each of the above priority points for travellers. The team specialise in group accommodation, offering holiday cottages, corporate retreats and wedding venues.
