UK STAYCATIONS 2021
Go Explore the UK this Summer
It's the season that we've all been waiting for and it's finally time to book the UK staycation that you've been dreaming of.
Many of us would prefer a UK staycation this year, and why not? The UK is full to the brim with incredible locations, just waiting to be explored.
We have some of the best beaches in the world... 194 pristine blue flag beaches, in fact, and they're dotted all over the country! Or maybe you have your sights set a little higher. Are the majestic mountain peaks of the Cairngorms, the Trossachs or Snowdonia more on your level? Perhaps, it's the wonderful variety of a National Park break that you long for, enjoying a picnic in the countryside one day and strolling the coast the next. Whichever summer staycation break you opt for, there's a Macdonald Resort for you...
