Isle of Arran

A hub of history, culinary delights and city buzz, Lincoln is an up-and-coming staycation choice in the heart of the East Midlands. This is a chance for you and your family to immerse yourself in past and present English culture, with plenty of educational and fun activities to keep you all busy.
Experience Lincoln cathedral, once the tallest building in the world, or visit the Magna Carta and Norman ruins at Lincoln Castle – both enlightening days out for kids and adults alike. The historic ‘steep hill’ is great for a unique shopping trip, or you can find more popular outlets on the high street and along Brayford canal.
Many of the properties in Lincoln hold Grade four or five status – making it a luxury staycation destination.

St. Ives is one of Cornwall’s many surfing districts, and it’s perfect for experienced surfers as well as beginners. Why not introduce your family to a new skill?!
A classic British seaside holiday, St. Ives will always be a top staycation destination and an experience that your family shouldn’t miss out on.
No matter which corner of the UK you decide to adventure to for your staycation, you’re sure to learn new things about your home country and make special memories that you and your family will treasure forever.
