It goes without saying that 2020 hasn’t been the year anyone had planned, but as lockdown continues to ease but travel restrictions continually changing, we’re confident that this really is the year of the staycation. In fact, as soon as lockdown restrictions started easing, many of our members were fully booked for August and September within just days!
The South West is home to beautiful beaches, glorious countryside and wildlife and delicious local food, making a holiday in Devon or Cornwall just as exciting as going abroad and Autumn breaks are often the perfect time to go, with tourist hotspots usually a little quieter. To help plan your next visit to the South West, the below options are perfect for an Autumn staycation.
Glamping, like camping but fancier with a touch of cosy. If you fancy doing something a little different and going ‘off-grid’, glamping is the perfect choice. From pods, yurts and bell tents to shepherd's huts, cabins and treehouses, the possibilities are endless when it comes to glamping and you can find some truly unique accommodation options. If you’ve never slept in a treehouse, your next trip to the South West could provide the chance to do so!
