Making plans for the upcoming Bank Holidays

Lake District

It’s that time of year again, the gap after Christmas has been overcome and all the Easter eggs have been polished off, now is the time to start day dreaming about getting the most of the remaining summer time bank holidays. The two in May fall on the 4th and 25th and the final bank holiday of the summer is August 31st, so that’s three opportunities for a long weekend without using up precious leave (unless you are in a job that requires you to work, in which case our thoughts will be with you).

With time being limited, a break in the UK is probably going to be the best option. While the weather won’t (note – I’m not even going to pretend that there’s a chance) match that of the continent, there are still some cracking place to see in the UK. Cumbria has recently been awarded the top the holiday destination of the year in the BBC Countryfile magazine poll, in which 130,000 votes were cast.

If you are looking to head to Cumbria this year, then why not consider staying in a traditional Lake District cottage, they make great bases from which to explore the area and provide a great area for groups/ families to meet up in the evening. While B&B’s are great (generally because the inclusion of an English breakfast will make most things great), they sometimes lack the space for a group of people to kick back and plan the next leg of their adventure without disturbing the other occupants.
