If getting away from it all is increasingly becoming your mantra as soon as you wake up in the morning, then perhaps it’s indeed time to take that break and getaway, even for just a weekend. Our bodies need to relax once in a while, and it being summer, it’s the ideal time of year to go off on that holiday. Even just a few days off, not worrying about work and other duties can already make a big difference to your mental and physical health – but the big question is, where should you go and what can you do? Well, if you are not quite sure about where to go and what to do on a weekend holiday, here’s your ultimate list of top weekend holiday ideas and places to go in the UK.
- Stay in a log cabin in the Cotswolds
The Cotswolds is one of the most charming and picturesque places in the UK, and if you want something extra memorable and relaxing, you can stay in a log cabin in the Cotswolds. We’re not just talking about a rustic log cabin with only basic amenities – we’re talking of more luxurious log cabins with just the right combination of comfort and elegance along with panoramic views and hot tubs right beside the lake. You can relax in the beauty of your surroundings and take evening strolls and day hikes to get some much-needed fresh air.
- Take a beach mini-break on the English Riviera
You don’t have to go too far (or take a plane) to relish the sun, sand, and sea, and we have our very own English Riviera where you can get that full bronzed look for the summer. Devon is an excellent place for a mini-break, and there are more than a few places where you can stay in the area, too. You can also visit Torbay, which is comprised of Brixham, Paignton, and Torquay, which boast a lot of gold sandy beaches, a Geopark (a UNESCO Global site in itself), and a myriad of other attractions combined with plenty of walking and hiking trails. The Devon region also features some outstanding Michelin-starred restaurants so that you can satisfy your palate as well. Whilst you’re there, don’t forget to visit Oddicombe and Babbacombe beach for some great activities, including surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, and kayaking.
- Relax in a luxurious beachside home in Cornwall
Cornwall is another premier destination in the UK, and you can get a lot of sun, sand, and sea in the region as well. And whilst there may be many accommodations in the area, you can maximise your weekend stay by relaxing in a luxurious beachside home! There are beautiful large houses to rent in Cornwall that are magnificently outfitted with stunning living areas along with tennis courts, cinema rooms, and outdoor and indoor pools, so you can take your pick. Your stay in Cornwall can certainly rejuvenate you with many outdoor activities to choose from, along with visits to castles and ruins, walks along secluded beaches and coves, and strolls along beautiful nature trails and an endless plethora of gardens.
Going on a mini-break is one of the best things you can do for your health – and with so many options from which to choose, you’re sure to have a wonderful and fantastic time.
