Why should you consider a self-drive get-away

Have you been thinking about a vacation this summer? While we all love to sit out in the sun sipping pina-coladas, there are many drawbacks of your typical organized package holiday; stuffy coaches, busy airport check in’s, expensive hotels and sharing your holiday with many other fellow sun-seekers.

But did you know you might not have to travel as far as you think for a slice of tranquillity?


We are incredibly fortunate living in a country with some of the best landscapes and countryside in Europe. Driving Holidays have many advantages over flying abroad, and you may be surprised by what’s on offer!


  • 1. Land of the Lakes, Lake District

The Lake District is home to some of England’s most scenic roads and Lakes. For a driving holiday to the lakes it’s best to allow 2-3 days, ideal for a long weekend away. There are lots of things to do, including hiking up Scafell Peak, which is the highest peak in the country.

  •    2. Atlantic Highway, South West England

The A39, otherwise known as the Atlantic Highway, is one of the longest roads in South West England.  While stopping off in some beautiful quaint villages along the 77 mile stretch of road, you can stop for a picnic on Bedruthan Steps Beach, a dramatic stretch of coastline where huge stacks rise from the waves.

  • 3. Best of the Moors, Yorkshire

With dense forests, streams and vast swathes of heather moorland, the North York Moors National Park makes for a spectacular road trip. Although the journey from the market town of Helmsley to the seaside village of Staithes is short and sweet, you can stretch it out over a couple of days if you fancy an overnight stay in a village B&B.
