2021: The Year of the Staycation

A British Getaway

As the Minsters of the UK announce the gradual easing of the lockdown restrictions and it appears these are being eased before international ones, now is the time to plan and look forward to a getaway in a country that is blessed with fantastic places to stay, whether coastal or countryside.

Whilst we normally set our sights on places further afield, the British Isles has a tremendous offering of incredible locations catering for everyone’s pleasure. Luxury hotels and cottages are spread across the British Isles, just waiting to be discovered. From Lands End to John O’Groats and beyond, there is no shortage of places to visit.

There are many picturesque locations generally away from built up areas and major transport links. This can make driving to them a lengthy and tiring experience; especially if you are planning on a trip to other end of the country. Travelling from London to the border of Scotland will take you at least seven hours.

There are substantial benefits for travelling by helicopter as it will vastly reduce your journey time. Also, it is possible for a helicopter to land in secluded, remote locations and some high-end hotels, have their own helipads for guests. Whether it be a long weekend or a weeklong escape, flying by helicopter allows you to spend more time enjoying your trip and less time travelling. On your flight you can enjoy a glass of champagne and you will have the best seat in the house to see the magnificent aerial view of the scenery below whilst heading towards your destination.

It is noticeably reported in the media that the increase in UK travel is very popular for 2021 breaks and most people are booking now as part of the pleasure provided by a holiday is the anticipation and something to look forward to.
