Here are the best property locations for your last minute hot tub break
Best for? Being in the heart of the action
London is a great option if you’re looking for a last minute break as there’s always something to do and you can get your hands on tickets and table bookings quite easily. Explore the capital on foot and tick off all the local attractions, head to the box office and see which shows are on and tantalise your tastebuds at the range of bars and restaurants, and pop up stalls. Adults, kids, even those young at heart, are sure to fall in love with everything the UK’s capital city has to offer. It’s also really easy to get to – wherever home is.
Best for? Its food and drink
While the UK may have firmly established itself on the worldwide foodie map, one of the places that boasts the best food and drink has got to be Cornwall. Think fresh fish, the finest wine, and meat and veg that’s grown locally. Of course, that’s not the only reason why visitors flock to Cornwall. It’s also home to incredible coastal and countryside as well as shops, galleries, museums and plenty of family-friendly activities. One thing’s for sure, a last-minute trip to Cornwall definitely won’t be regretted.
Best for? Its celtic culture
Wales is home to vast landscapes, beautiful mountain ranges, stunning coastal scenes and a few areas of natural beauty. Here, you’ll find plenty of things to do and see – whatever the weather – but it’s the Welsh culture that really has us going back for more. Whether tasting delicacies, enjoying a local tour or meeting those who own the independent shops and pubs, you’re guaranteed to feel at home here. Oh, and did we mention, the range of holiday homes is just as impressive? Think luxury lodges, large family pads and romantic boltholes perfect for a weekend away.
Best for? Long walks
Yorkshire is home to some incredible cities and towns like Leeds and Harrogate, but if you’re looking for a last-minute break, you won’t go wrong with a trip to the countryside. Choose from national parks in the Dales or the Moors, and pack your hiking boots for a weekend of exploration. Dogs, children, grandparents – everyone’s invited and if walking isn’t their thing, there’s plenty of tearooms, shops or other indoor activities to keep them busy. York is also worth a visit and after a morning wandering around the walls, there’s nothing better than heading back to your hot tub property to relax.
Best for? A little bit of everything
Whatever the reason for your last-minute break and however you want to spend your days, Scotland is a great choice. Choose from city breaks in Edinburgh or Glasgow. Head to the coast at Southerness or Ayr. Or, venture into the gorgeous countryside in the Highlands or the Scottish Borders. Mix your days up with walking, hiking, watersports and more. Or keep cosy in a nearby pub or tearoom and peruse the local shops, galleries and museums. It wouldn’t be a true Scottish break without tasting some delicacies though so lookout for some of the finest Haggis.
