10 Very Best Places For A Staycation In Britain – Hand Luggage Only

16 Best Places In Pembrokeshire To Visit (7)

England is an incredible country to explore, with a surprising amount of diversity, culture and charm for a relatively small island. Not only that, there are heaps of the best places for a staycation in Britain dotted all across the island.

From the beautiful coastline of Pembrokeshire in Wales, driving the NC500 in the Scottish Highlands to historic Roman cities like Bath; you’re going to be spoilt for choice.

Now, with any staycation in Britain, it will require a little planning to get the most out of your holiday. So, to help you prioritise the top places to visit, I’m sharing my favourite spots in Britain you can

1.) Pembrokeshire National Park

Nestled on the southwest coastline of Wales, Pembrokeshire is an absolutely beautiful place to visit for a staycation.

Once in the area, make sure to explore the coastline from the Blue Lagoon and head down the coast towards the beautiful beaches of Barafundle Bay and Freshwater West Beach.

Both are absolutely stunning and you might even spot some of the resident seals, too.

Oh, and just shy of Pembrokeshire National Park is Tenby, a historic fishing village that’s so quaint. Be sure to stroll around the town, take a visit to nearby Caldey Island and see the ruins of nearby Carew Castle. It’s so impressive to see.

Heads up, public transport can be a little slim here, so it’s best to explore by car. That being said, you can easily hop on local buses, with a bike, and cover lots of ground. Just be sure to plan as some bus routes operate infrequently.

2.) Scottish Highlands

The Scottish Highlands is one of my absolute favourite places for a staycation in Britain, especially if you’re already in Scotland. Now, for me, the best places in the Highlands are best explored by car. This allows you to explore some of the historic ruins, rugged coastline and local villages that are dotted across the route.

If you’re up for an adventure, drive the NC500 which is best explored over 5-7 days. We’ve done this route quite a few times and it’s so breathtaking.

Not only that, you can easily divert off the main NC500 route and explore some nearby areas, too. For instance, it’s well worth including a trip to the Isle of Skye and a drive down the Applecross Peninsular, too.
