Go Camping

Camping isn’t for everyone, but it is the cheapest way to have a country holiday. Children will love sleeping in a tent and being outdoors, and it can be a relaxing way to unwind and get close to nature. If you don’t have your own tent, or are a little put off by camping, why not try glamping? Here the tents are already set up, a lot sturdier and most of your home comforts can be found in this more glamorous way to camp.

Short Package Deals

The same as booking a trip abroad, waiting until the last minute can bring up some of the cheapest deals. There are also many services, such as greatlittlebreaks, that offer affordable short package deals across the country. Whether you want two nights in a hotel in Suffolk, or a deal that includes a luxury evening meal or visit to a nearby historical site, all these options and more can be found. Shop around to find your ideal short UK break.

Budget Hotels

If camping isn’t your thing but you are really strapped for cash, then try to find one of the budget hotels available in the UK countryside. This can be done by booking during the week outside of school holidays or deciding on a winter rather than summer holiday. Shop around by comparing prices and dates online to find the cheapest option available. Plus, for activities websites like GroupOn and others that offer discounts are a great place to look.

Grab the Gang

Cottages are the other main attraction for people after a country break. These can be booked for a lot cheaper if you find a large one and fill it, so invite as many friends and family members as necessary to help lower the price. The same with hotels, these will be cheaper when booked out of peak season. So if you’re after a UK country break this year at an affordable price, make the most of these tips.

    We love holidays in the UK there is so many beautiful places to explore, we camp most years for a week or so during the summer holidays. Then we will take a few mini breaks across the UK to visit different places or attractions through the year and we stay in budget hotels.
