It’s March and Spring is in the air. The dark winter months are receding and you are coming out of hibernation (metaphorically speaking) to start enjoying holidays and days out with friends and loved ones again.
After Christmas, January and February can feel very long. You live in perpetual twilight and nobody is doing anything. But as the months’ tick on and March gets closer you can start thinking about, and planning, a Spring getaway for your family or friends to enjoy.
Heck, some people have their Spring holidays booked before Christmas. They’re something to look forward to in the dark winter months. As the New Year disappears into the rear view mirror people have a bit more money to spend too. All the post Christmas scrimping is behind you and you can treat yourself to a nice holiday.
With the days finally getting a bit longer too, Spring is the perfect time to book a UK staycation and enjoy the delights of the English countryside. You can see nature spring back to life on bracing country walks and see fields of farm animals all running about in the spring grass.
All of the above are great reasons to go on a UK getaway in the Spring. But we think one of the best places to enjoy the April sunshine is the South West of England. We’ve listed the reasons why below.
4 reasons why the South East of England is perfect for a Spring getaway
When you’ve got the whole British Isles to choose from it can be difficult settling on a place to visit. There’s so many amazing places to go to like Northern Ireland, Cornwall or the Lake District. With so much choice making a decision can be tough. That’s why we’ve written this handy list to give you all the top reasons why the South East should be your UK Spring staycation. You can read our reasons below.
Enjoy beautiful scenery
The South East of England has no shortage of amazing scenery. In fact the two holiday parks we operate in the region are right next to The North Wessex Downs area of outstanding natural beauty (AOSB) and Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB.
When you decide to holiday in the South West of England you put yourself right in the heart of picturesque villages, rolling green hills and beautiful gushing rivers. The Spring sun and temperate wet weather only adds to these scenes letting you create memories and experiences with whoever you’re holidaying with.
Experience lovely walks
With amazing scenery comes lovely walks and rambles. The South East isn’t as hilly as places like North Wales or The Lake District. This means it’s perfect for walkers and hikers of all ages. The region’s winding footpaths, canal walks and short ascents can be enjoyed by anyone no matter the ability or age.
This makes the South East a great destination for those families or groups of friends who are more physically active. Plus the warmer weather means you can cut down on the layers and enjoy the sunny weather with a spring in your step.
See great attractions that should be enjoyed in the sun
The South East has no shortage of things to do and the best time to do them is when the sun is out. Whether it’s a day at Newbury races, walking around stately homes or taking a trip into historic Bury St Edmunds the region has some of the best attractions the UK has to offer.
Spring is one of the best times to visit too, the better weather and warmer temperature along with less tourists mean you won’t be battling with crowds and tourist hotspots, you can just relax, take your time and see all the best sites.
The South West is also home to some of the UK’s best coastline. Suffolk in particular has a beautiful stretch of coastline that faces the North Sea. The rugged dunes, grasses, beaches and marshland make for an amazing day out.
Whether it’s a few beers with friends at the beach or a family picnic on the dunes the sun, sand and sea make the South East an irresistible holiday destination in the Spring months.
