I think that sometimes as Britons we can be too eager to get out of the country at the first opportunity. With the channel tunnel, cheap flights, and ferries on offer it’s pretty easy to pack our backs and head over to the continent, or even further for a break when we have the time. But by doing this, we are missing the riches that our own home turf has to offer. Read on to find out more.
Luxury break the UK
You don’t have travel abroad to have a luxury break with all of the trimming, In fact, there are plenty of places in the UK that can cater to your every whim. Check out the famous Ritz in London for that old school glamours feel.
Or go for something a little more modern by staying at the The Hari, or at K West Hotel & Spa. There you will be greeting by suits that are full of glass and chrome as well as all the mod cons you might need. Of course there is a luxurious spa too. Which is perfect for relaxing and adding the special tea luxury touch your break.
One of the most envied things about the UK is its wonderful countryside. That is why it always a good idea to get out into the more rural parts of the country and do some exploring.
On a country break, you can find yourself doing anything from canoeing to hiking, and horse riding. You may even decide to sleep under canvas is you really want to get that authentic back to nature experience.
Of course, there is no rule saying that you have to stay in a tent when on a country break. So don’t feel guilty in the slightest in looking for a nice countryside hotel in its own grounds like this Evesham Hotel, or the Stapleford Park Country House Hotel and Sporting Estate to spend your nights in.
Seaside break the UK
As an island, the UK also has a great deal of coastline to explore. In fact, you can find some of the most breathtaking scenery there.
In term of Seaside most people think of fish and chips on the pier, claw grabber machines, and ice creams in locations like Southend-on-Sea.
But if that’s not quite what you had in mind, why not head up to the Northumbrian coast? There you will find almost deserted beaches along with stunning scenery and ancient castles to feed your soul.
City Break UK

Or why not visit one of the UK’s capital cities such as Edinburgh, London or Cardiff? In each, you will find a bustling metropolis with plenty of things to see and do. As well as some lovely hotel in which to rest your weary head after a day of exploring.
