So you’re planning to get better acquainted with the UK this summer? Do you urge to break the routine and experience something new? In that case, you may want to consider trying something alternative, as far as holiday accommodations go. Say no to hotels and touristic traps!
There are plenty of interesting alternatives around the UK, and they’re often less expensive and much more peaceful than going for vacations in the rural centres. In case you don’t know where to start, UKHolidayPlaces has presented the following options to help with planning some truly original holidays.
Howa about getting immersed in a rural setting for a few days, witnessing what it feels like to live in a quaint village, maybe try your hand at a bit of farming? In that case, rural tourism should be your thing. This mode of accommodation was introduced as a clever way to alleviate the economic and social repercussions rural exodus, with the adaptation and restoration of empty houses into enjoyable touristic accommodations. Rural tourism is usually inexpensive, and provides a great opportunity for relaxation and contemplation of natural sceneries.
Unlike rural tourism accommodations (which are usually integrated in populated villages), cottages tend to be much more private. And for anyone whose sole desire is to find peace and quiet (possibly in a secluded area where no living soul will distract you from your musings and respite) they are a great option. You can find cottages in various styles and price ranges – from the plain cabin in the woods to the genuine country house sporting a nice swimming pool and loaded with appliances. No matter what your preference (or budget constraints), spending holidays in a cottage is always a great opportunity for relaxation and soul-searching.
If you’re serious about exploring the UK, you might as well take it out on the road. In that sense, why not consider renting a mobile house for the holidays? Renting a motorhome big enough to accommodate a family is quite inexpensive when you consider the cost per person. What’s most interesting: with this type of accommodation, you can roam freely to your heart’s content, and leisurely explore the best sceneries and most idyllic spots at your own pace. Moreover, there’s a real sense of adventure to driving a motorhome and heading out for random destinations, as opposed to sitting somewhere for the duration of the holidays.
The latest trend in terms of communing with nature, glamping combines the best of camping with all those modern comforts you won’t do without, for a truly enjoyable “open air” experience. A glamping site is usually a private property in a secluded area, sporting luxurious yurts and safari tents. Inside these structures, you will usually find luxurious king size beds, sofas, pillows, stoves, showers, and just about every imaginable perk aimed at alleviating the discomforts of conventional camping, while retaining that enjoyable sensation that can only be experienced in the great outdoors.
Do you enjoy the prospect of sleeping in a boat, and being cradled every night during your vacations? Can you imagine greeting the sun from the deck of a floating home? In that case, boating holidays would be the right choice for you. This can either imply just using a docked boat as home for the holidays, hiring a room in a staffed boat that will take you on a cruise of sorts, or something in between. Either way, boating holidays can be a highly enjoyable and memorable experience, for those who have just about tried all the common options.
