Surge in Staycation Enquiries
With the days getting longer, and spring just around the corner, we have seen a surge in enquiries from those who are keen to plan a staycation this summer.
It’s clear that people are looking for something to look forward to, and they need a break.
Now is a great time to look at ideas and plan a post lockdown escape.
We are expecting it to be a busy summer for staycations. And what better way to travel than in the comfort of a private jet where you choose who you travel with.
There’s no shortage of destinations either. For example, it’s less than an hour’s travel time from Gloucestershire Airport to the Scottish Isle of Islay, also called Queen of the Hebrides. With nine working whisky distilleries, the stunning scenery, amazing wildlife and all the friendly people, Islay is a five-star holiday destination.
Set in the dunes of Islay, the Machrie Hotel and Golf Links enjoys an enviable location, nestled beside seven miles of pristine beach in the Inner Hebrides.
The Machrie features 47 beautifully designed rooms, suites and lodges, some with their own outdoor terraces and with stunning views across highly rated Golf Links.
The hotel offers guests the perfect place to meet and relax including an impressive restaurant with stunning views, the PureGray Spa with treatment rooms, gym and sauna and a Championship Links Golf Course, rated one of the top twenty golf courses in Scotland by Golf Digest.
Or in just 40 minutes you can travel from Gloucestershire Airport to Cornwall Airport Newquay. Find quaint fisherman’s cottages, fresh fish being hauled up onto the harbours, and brightly coloured fishing boats moored up. Fishing villages are a great way to see Cornish history and admire the sea views away from the sand. These villages can be found throughout the county, on both the North and the South Coast, and they all have something different to offer. They include Padstow which is just a 20 minute drive from the airport and Mevagissey near St Austell.
Set on a spectacular, two mile surfing beach on the North Cornwall coast, Watergate Bay hotel is the perfect destination for a contemporary beach holiday. Watergate Bay Hotel is so close to the sea that you can watch the surfers from the pool.
We have also had interest from people hoping to travel to The Channel Islands this summer. The Channel Islands are just a short hop away from Britain and they each have their own character.
You can enjoy the hustle and bustle of capitals, Jersey’s St Helier and Guernsey’s St Peter Port, or head to the smaller islands by boat; Alderney, Sark and Herm, which ooze old world charm.
