Cheap UK staycation deals

Compare hotels, car hire, holiday parks and cottage holidays in the UK

TravelSupermarket is the key to unlocking cheap hotel deals in the UK.

A great way to explore the UK is to book one of its many hotels - there are thousands to choose from - plus charming bed & breakfasts and guesthouses. Need a hand sifting through them? No problem. Our handy filters and nifty sliders allow you to narrow your search results by star-rating, price, guest rating and other useful things - such as free breakfast and wi-fi - putting your ideal hotel at your fingertips (and at the right price, of course).

In the big cities, you will find all the major hotel brands competing for business. In addition, there are many small family-owned hotels and guesthouses who can provide a comfortable stay. Visit England runs the official star ratings system; this has been adopted across the country to ensure that guest expectations are met (who wants a two-star room when you’ve been promised four?)

From a simple room with a bed for the night, to a sumptuous suite in a castle or a country house, your budget is the only limit when it comes to booking an amazing UK hotel.

Hotels are in big demand all year round in the cities of London, Edinburgh, York, Chester, Bath, Brighton and Blackpool, as well as Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool. Those in scenic areas, such as the Lake District, and at the coast will be more popular in the summer months and during school summer holidays and weekends.

Booking early ensures better availability and therefore a better chance of nabbing low prices on UK hotels. Compare prices on TravelSupermarket and bag a bargain break.

Who says you need to go abroad to have a brilliant holiday

No mad dash through the airport, no exhausting plane journey, and no need to worry about getting sunburnt (most of the time, that is). Yep, there’s a reason more and more people are opting to holiday at home.

This year, it’s all about the staycation: having a holiday close to home, in your own county or taking a trip to another part of the UK. It’s great for the environment, a brilliant way to rediscover your own backyard, and often much easier on the bank balance. Without flights, money conversions, and transfers to shell out for, UK staycations tend to be a lot cheaper.

So, how can you get the best deal on a staycation? The same way you would any holiday: shop around, book early and use TravelSupermarket to compare the best deals!

From top to bottom, the UK is packed with brilliant destinations for a weekend break. Here are five of the best.

London

One of the most exciting cities in the world, London ticks all the boxes for a weekend break. With world-class art and theatre, exceptional food and drink, and brilliant museums and cultural attractions, the English capital is one of the few destinations that lives up to the cliché: there really is something for everyone.

Lake District

After a staycation set in the great outdoors? They don’t come much greater than the Lake District. England’s biggest national park is absolutely packed with scenic beauty, from its stunning lakes, such as Windermere, Buttermere, and Derwent Water, to its beautiful valleys and endless rolling fells (including Scafell Pike, England’s tallest peak). In and amongst all that nature, you’ll find picturesque villages, such as Ambleside and Kendal, and countless country pubs.

North Wales

From the jagged peaks of Snowdonia to the sandy shores of Llandudno, North Wales is ripe for exploration over a weekend. Small but mighty, there’s a huge range of activities to pack in – from hiking up Mount Snowdon and whizzing down the longest zipline in Europe to discovering castles in Conwy and surfing in Anglesey. To get the most out of your trip, consider renting a car in Wales.

New Forest

A sprawling tract of unhindered forest and pastureland, the New Forest in England’s south is a brilliant spot for a sedate staycation. Ideal for active travellers, the national park has over 225km (140 miles) of cycle trails and 40 hiking paths to choose from, plus loads of other fun activities, such as pony trekking, kayaking and canoeing, stand-up paddleboarding and archery. It’s a great one for young families, too.

Edinburgh

A magnificent castle, Arthur’s Seat, the Royal Mile… something incredible awaits at every turn in Edinburgh. From the wynds and crannies of the city’s medieval centre down to the wide, elegant streets of the Georgian new town, history plays a huge part in Edinburgh’s beauty. That’s not to say that the Scottish capital lacks a contemporary side. Every year, the famous Fringe Festival sets the bar for contemporary performance around the world.
