The new year is here and travel restrictions are still in place. Britons who want to plan their 2022 holidays will once again find their safest bet is to stay in the UK.

A UK holiday is once more in the cards for many Britons, with travel still very much at risk due to the continued Covid pandemic.

Matt Fox, founder of UK holiday rental Snaptrip said: “We can see the staycation trends of seaside stays, holidays in nature and breaks in Wales continue into the new year with destinations such as Newquay, Keswick and Brecon taking their places in the top 10 popular locations.”

According to the company, Bideford and Newquay in Devon and Cornwall will be the top two destinations in 2022.

Coming third on their list was Keswick in the Lake District, with Whitby in Yorkshire in fourth and Brecon in Wales in fifth.

And the company was not the only one with these predictions.

Cornwall, Yorkshire, the Lakes and Wales also ranked well in Parkdean Resorts’ 2022 projections.

The company also predicted July to be the busiest month in 2022, so Britons who want to stay in the UK for their summer holidays may want to start booking now.

The great British outdoors will again attract many Britons, with glamping, the luxury version of camping, predicted to be the most popular accommodation type this year.

Pods, domes, shepherd huts and cabins have all seen their popularity skyrocket last year, and the trend is set to continue.

The most popular spot was also named and Cornwall took the crown.

The county is a summer holiday favourite for many Britons and 2022 will not see its popularity diminish.

In second place was Lancashire, followed by the Lake District.

Seaside resort such as Blackpool will once again be busy, while one of the most popular national parks in the UK will continue to see tourists flock to its lakes.
