The love of my life doesn’t share my desire for exotic holiday destinations and hot weather, so to keep him and our budget happy, we have been looking at holidaying in the UK more and more. Just this year we did a 5 day break in London, last year we stayed in the beautiful market town of Beverly and we have been having short breaks at my brothers caravan in Mabletherpe over the past few years. I love the seaside and coastal towns and we often take day trips to the seaside when we want to relax or just get away from it all. We can spend hours just walking along the beach.
When I was younger my parents took us all over the UK on vacation and I have some great memories of our trips to Brixham in Devon. Also known as the English Riviera, it has something for everyone. We always stayed in the same caravan and we spent our days on the beach. Dad would be fishing, mum would be reading a book and I would be hunting for treasures and crabs with my brothers.
Parkdean recently got in touch and asked if I would share my experiences of UK holidays and their amazing competition.

To get the creative juices flowing they also sent me this luxury cream tea hamper from Simply Cornish Hampers.
I’ve never been to Cornwall and I just talked about my childhood holidays in Devon, but I couldn’t resist this cornish hamper after reading the description. This was a great treat that I shared with my fiancé and I can honestly say the Strawberry jam was the best I have ever tasted.
Thanks to recent British summers giving us some great weather, staycations are more popular than ever. Are you a lover of staycations and if you had to choose between Cornwall or Devon, which would it be?
