Holidaying in the UK

Holidaying in the UK has become increasingly popular over the last couple of years whether you’re staying in a caravan on the coast for a summer holiday or just going away for a relaxing weekend in the Lake District. The best bit about taking a holiday in the UK is that you don’t have to spend all year saving! This month I’ve found some great websites that might just persuade you that a holiday in the UK is just as good as one abroad......

Canoe Adventures

Canoe Adventures operate next to the friendly Maltsters Arms at Tuckenhay on Bow Creek on the west bank of the beautiful River Dart halfway between Dartmouth and Totnes in South Devon. The canoes are Voyager 12-seat canoes each with full equipment and its own steersman-guide.

Twice a month the moon and tide coincide for Canoeing By Moonlight, and the Voyager canoes with guest-crews and steersmen take to the river under the light of the moon to paddle to an evening meal at a riverside pub, and on the return journey land again for a bright romantic campfire to brew and share hot chocolate before continuing.

All the Voyager canoe outings are 4-5 hours and each trip is timed to the flow of the tide, using it to help power the canoes out and return, always stopping for a riverside picnic or a bbq on a campfire lit with flint and steel (great for children!). There's also an ice cream stop.

I think you should mention the under-rated UK holiday destination of Clacton-on-Sea.

For a family-friendly break there's no better place in the south-east of England. It has a plethora of amusements, eateries and beaches that will keep the younger members of the family occupied whilst the pubs and bars are equally attractive to the lees-active adults.

Thanks for your comment Trevor, I have never been to Clacton-on-Sea or heard much about the area. However, you do make it sound like a good UK holiday destination!
