Enjoy A Holiday At Home With A Scottish Hamper

For a relatively small collection of islands, the United Kingdom has a wealth of attraction situated within from glorious beaches to urban cityscapes, and from a rich historical heritage to some of the most cutting-edge modern art and theatre. It is little wonder more and more people are choosing to shun traditional holiday destinations abroad and have their own ‘staycation’ right here in the UK. With Easter and a raft of bank holidays approaching; here are some of the country’s top destinations for a stay-at-home getaway.


Situated in the south western corner of England, Cornwall can lay claim to being one of the warmest and sunniest placed in the country. The coastline is stunning with beautiful stretches of sandy white beaches interspersed with sandy white coves. A little further inland the lush green countryside does not betray any hint of being so near the coast. Self-catering caravans and apartments are available all over Cornwall. For a truly relaxing day out a luxury food hamper on the beach or a grassy knoll overlooking Tintagel should do the trick.


The inspiration behind Jane Austen’s Persuasion, Bath is a pretty Roman spa town filled with beautiful architecture and exciting attractions. The botanical gardens and a hot air balloon ride are a must. For a real treat, enjoy a champagne food hamper whilst floating dreamily over the rolling Somerset countryside. The Thermae Bath Spa is also a must see; a historical spa located in a recently renovated glass building. Why not tie in your visit with one of Bath’s key events such as the Bath Literature Festival (March) and the Bath Fringe Festival (May).


This tiny island off the coast of Wales has been given a royal seal of approval and is the chosen home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge whilst Prince William is on RAF duty. The wild and untamed coastal paths are perfect for walking holidays and eager dolphin-spotters might even catch sight of one of their favourite marine animals leaping from the sea nearby. Caernarfon Castle is just across the water on the mainland and makes for a great day out, whilst anyone entertaining children can equally enjoy a day at Anglesey Sea Zoo.

The Peak District

Home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the UK, the Peak District is an ideal destination for a weekend getaway without leaving the country. Bird-watching and fishing enthusiasts are particularly attracted to this area and armed with a food hamper full with a range of wonderful goodies, will enjoy many an hour in this beautiful countryside. Luxury B&Bs are dotted around the area although many holidaymakers in this area prefer a self-catering cottage. Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House, two of the most beautiful stately homes in the country and the venues for many TV and film sets are well worth a visit, while tiny villages like Bakewell and New Mills are great places for bike rides or long walks.
