Looking For Your Next Staycation?

Last year, the Travel Counsellors community created hundreds of unforgettable getaways for customers right across the UK. Since then, we’ve grown our collection of staycation options to ensure that you can experience the very best of the UK. So, we wanted to show off some of our favourites.

Villa Stays

Perfect for multigenerational trips and reunions with friends, villa stays grant you the space to unwind, catch up and spread out as you make yourself at home.

Temple Guiting Manor in the Cotswolds accommodates up to 12 guests in one of the country’s most enviable locations in the heart of the Gloucestershire countryside.

Adventurous Tours

For anyone looking to add some adrenaline to their next break, our more adventurous outings may be just what you’re looking for. With itineraries encompassing everything from canyoning, mountain hiking, Whitewater rafting and kayaking, you can be sure of leaving feeling reinvigorated.

Self-drive Road Trips

If you’re looking to fulfil your sense of adventure, without flying to the other side of the world, a self-guided road trip could be ideal. With accommodation pre-arranged ahead of your trip and the option for car hire to also be arranged, all you’ll need to do is turn up and enjoy the adventure.
Our Travel Counsellors have a selection of itineraries for you to choose from, but each can be adapted to suit. Take the North Coast 500 road trip for example, which can be amended to feature trips out to the Scottish islands.

Small-group Guided Tours

For some expert insights on your next trip, our selection of small group tour options come with the service of a tour leader to take you off-the-beaten track to spots only frequented by locals. A fond favourite is the Corners of Cornwall Itinerary which makes a round trip from London, taking in the highlights of both the southern and northern coasts of the Cornish peninsula.

Rail Journeys

The timeless elegance of rail travel has an undeniable appeal. Evoking the spirit of the 1930s, the Northern Belle is a chance to experience a taste of luxury as you traverse the most scenic swathes of countryside in the UK.

Wellness Retreats

Unplug, slow down and enjoy some yoga as you reconnect with nature on a wellness retreat in the Welsh wilderness. One of many wellness retreats available, this option brings together stylish glamping bell tents, foraging and stargazing to give you a true away-from-it-all feel.

Golfing Breaks

Gather your friends and head off for a long weekend break, working on your swing and enjoying one another’s company.

Your Travel Counsellor can arrange your round at some of the UK’s most prestigious courses, alongside accommodation in suitably stylish hotels. Just 20 minutes from Glasgow, the Druids Den Golf Resort offers two championship courses and could be the scene of your next round.


Last year saw a boom in the popularity of staycation cruising, and while many ships have left for sunnier climes, Hebridean Island Cruises are still plying the waters of northern Scotland offering guests the chance to take a unique look at this most scenic of landscapes.

One of the smallest luxury cruise lines in the world, they ensure that every guest receives an unmatched level of service and bring Scottish culture to life with a programme of guests speakers specialising in everything from art to conservation.

Holiday Cottages

Nestled away in the Great British countryside are all manner of quaint cottages to call your own. Bucolic boltholes with their own little quirks to fall in love with and all the facilities you’ll need to hide yourself away from the world.

From the fells of the Lake District to the shores of Devon, there’s characterful cottages that still have availability over summer.

To book your next staycation, get in touch today. You’ll benefit from full financial protection and a 24-hour duty office ready to assist you before, during and after your trip.
