5 Reasons To Be Blown Away By The Great British Summer

With the sunshine-soaked summer holidays almost within our reach, opt for an unforgettable self-catering staycation in 2017 and settle into luxury amongst the best Great Britain has to offer…

1. Blissful beaches that rival the rest of Europe
Summer holidays are synonymous with long, lavish afternoons spent digging your toes in powder soft sands and paddling in turquoise waters, but these picture-perfect scenes are not restricted to our neighbouring European shores. All along the Great British coast lie spectacular scenes of natural beauty, with hidden coves, mile-wide stretches of beach and breath-taking vistas just waiting to be explored.

Cornwall itself is home to over 400 beaches, some of which have been voted the most awe-inspiring in the world, a beach in the Outer Hebrides was used as a doppelgänger for Thailand's Kai Bae Beach by the Thai tourist board, and the coastline in John O'Groats welcome schools of orca, plump grey seals and puffins each year!

2. Zero packing restrictions – cram your car with as much as you like!
With a self-catering staycation, there are no limits on how much you can bring along with you. Gone are the days of trying to squeeze their favourite toys, nappies and other essentials into a carefully-weighed suitcase - bring their favourite bikes, your favourite foodie treats and anything else you fancy too!

3. Forget never-ending queues at airport security...
Sometimes the hassle of queuing at the airport can put a dampener on the start of your holiday, but with our breath-taking locations accessible by car, you're not restricted by time, route or anything else as you make your way to your Natural Retreat. Our Xplore Team even know the best secret stop-off points to break up your journey!

4. Bring the whole family – grandparents and pets too!
With flexible sleeping solutions, open-plan living areas and a majority of our luxurious holiday homes welcoming your four-legged friends, you can bring the whole family on your next summer escape. Our spacious family villas in Trewhiddle for example, boast at least one downstairs bedroom and bathroom for the grandparents, and our en-suite 3-bedroom lodges in John O'Groats mean that everyone can enjoy their own privacy while still spending quality time together. For pet-friendly stays, our Xplore Team are experts on the best local beaches and eateries that cater for excitable pups, and can even arrange a doggie hamper to be waiting on your arrival!

5. From sweeping valleys to dramatic coastline, we’ve got it all...
It's rare to find one holiday destination that offers so much diversity in terms of it's natural environment. From the dramatic Duncansby Stacks that rise out of the surf in John O'Groats, to the sweeping mountains of Snowdonia that frame the aquamarine waters of the Llŷn Peninsula, all the way down to the powder soft sands and sub-tropical landscapes of South Cornwall, there's a new experience around every corner.
