It’s nearly time for the schools to break up and everyone is hoping the weather continues to be as good as it has been throughout the last few weeks.
Even Cumbria and the Lake District (sharp gasps of amazement) has been experiencing some fabulous weather and there has most definitely been more visitors milling around whether they are staying in the county of just having a day out in The Lakes.
A combination of the tightening of airport security, the result being possible lengthy delays through to the uncertainty due to Brexit and value of the plummeting value of the pound are factors for considering staying in the UK for your main summer holiday. Although holiday prices haven’t really increased, converting currency has made a large impact on the overall cost of going abroad. With it being easier now and more popular than ever to book a holiday to the last minute, it begs the question, could this be a bumper year for the UK staycation?
The level of service and quality of accommodation found in many European countries is second to none but UK accommodation is fast coming up to and exceeding it. Families shouldn’t discount as the accommodation for a holiday. Hotel stays with the family mean everyone gets to enjoy the break not just the kids. There’s no washing up, food is plentiful and with great choice for all and whilst a holiday abroad is tied to a full week or 2 weeks, staying in a hotel in the UK can be booked for just a part week if desired.
Cumbria and the Lake District has it all to guarantee every member of the family will be entertained and hotels are realising the need to entice families. The Tebay Services Hotel between Kendal and Penrith, super handy just off the M6 motorway, has done just that with superb family rooms specially designed with bunk beds and options for rooms next to each other for families with older children and a menu that appeals to children and adults of all ages too. Easily accessible from the M6 and with their sister businesses the Tebay Services 2 minutes away for toys, games and gifts and Rheged just up the motorway. Come rain or shine this hotel makes an excellent family base for exploring Cumbria, the Lake District and The Pennines.
