Planning a staycation? You can’t beat Dorset & the Jurassic Coast

Research by Airbnb has discovered that UK holidays were soaring, with over four in five Britons choosing to staycation. A large number of people were favouring the attraction of British towns and villages over exotic destinations abroad. The most popular option for why we prefer holidays in the UK is because it’s less stressful than going overseas.

Almost half of the people surveyed said the scenery is just as beautiful here as it is out of the country. The third most popular was the reason that there is much still to discover within the UK. Over 36% of people believe that landscapes as beautiful as Britain’s couldn’t be found abroad.
