Three Yorkshire locations have featured in a top 10 list of bucket list spots to staycation in the UK. We’d have made it ten Yorkshire spots, but we’ll take it.
The Yorkshire Dales, Robin Hood’s Bay & Whitby and the Peak District, which sits on the edge of Yorkshire. The Yorkshire regions were beaten out by the Scottish Highlands, Cornwall & Edinburgh. Lakes Life reported that along with Cumbria, these Yorkshire spots featured in the bucket list of staycation spots.
The Yorkshire beauty spots were beaten out by some stiff competition. People’s top five reasons for picking these places were due to their natural beauty, being seen on TV, and being recommended by friends and family among other reasons.
Travel restrictions over the past couple of years have led many Brits to explore the beauty of the UK rather than holidaying abroad, so it’s great to see that over half (52%) of Brits now want to visit the area in the UK because of the beauty of the area.
The research carried out by holidaycottages.co.uk four in ten (38%) people asked would choose UK staycation spots than international destinations on their bucket list, according to new research.
Interestingly, the study found that almost two in five (38%) Brits would rather visit more UK places in their lifetime than abroad, with over four in 10 (43%) saying they’d like to visit more UK locations, but still go abroad too.
Only 14% said they would rather visit places abroad in their lifetime than in the UK, showing that staycations are here to stay, even with the lifting of international travel restrictions.
Commenting on the research, Shannon Keary, Digital PR Manager at holidaycottages.co.uk, says: “We know how much the UK has to offer in terms of beautiful scenery and history, and we wanted to see where in the UK most appealed to Brits and which destinations in the UK topped their bucket list. It’s really interesting to see that so many would rather visit UK destinations in their lifetime than those abroad, so we can surely expect to see more and more Brits continuing the staycation trend of the past two years.”
