Kent’s most famous beach, Margate, is the epitome of uber-cool seaside kitsch. Traditional beach-town charm, the world-class Turner art gallery, trendy café culture and tempting vintage shops. Margate is one of the best UK holiday destinations for fun at the seaside. The old town has a chic cultural vibe, and the beach has all the typical retro amusements such as donkey rides and arcades.

The scenic fishing village of Staithes is one of the best UK holiday destinations to enjoy coast and country. Stay in a B&B Staithes, and one day you’re combing along the rocky foreshore, and the next, you can be hiking the Cleveland Way in the breathtaking North Yorkshire Moors. But, of course, you could just relax down by the harbour with a pint or two! Then stumble down the cobbled streets to your cosy B&B Staithes for a well-deserved rest.

Sutherland, Scotland

When you first see this area of unspoilt, dramatic scenery, it feels like you’ve stumbled across Britain’s best-kept secret. Being off the beaten track, it does not attract flocks of tourists like Scotland’s main attractions. This is definitely one of the best UK holiday destinations for getting away from it all. Take your time and explore the landscape, from the misty heather-covered moorland and the empty glens to the striking white-sands of the seashore.
