We are all excited to get out and go on holiday this year, and because of COVID-19, people are staycation mad. People are looking to visit locally – and it’s no shock that a Yorkshire has made it into the top 10 spots, according to Airbnb.
The homestays company has released data on 2021’s trending destinations, and the top 10 amongst its users is entirely the UK based. They’ve seen rural areas across the UK increase in popularity, as people are wanting to escape the towns and cities for a bit of fresh air.
Primrose Valley in North Yorkshire came 5th in Airbnb’s list of most popular staycations, beating out some spots in Cornwall and Devon. Saint Clears in Carmarthenshire, Wales took the top spot with the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire taking silver, and the harbour village of Clovelly in Devon taking bronze.
So what is it about the village of Primrose Valley that has attracted people to it in 2021? Well, for starters, its home to the huge Haven caravan park, which has everything a family wood need for a decent holiday. Primrose Valley Holiday Park has an indoor swimming pool, packed with splashing and a multi-lane water slide. It also has the outdoorheated pool and Aerial Adventure course as well as restaurant and bar.
It is situated right next to one of the best beaches in the Europe, Filey Beach – which has some spectacular views as well as beautiful golden sands.
It is also on the doorstep of the famous Cleveland Way National Trust walk, which takes in some beautiful scenes along the way and also visitors can take part in a range of water sports. It’s also just down from the beautiful and iconic Bempton Cliffs, which is an awe-inpiring spot.
