If you’ve shelved your foreign holiday plans for 2020, now might be the ideal time for an injection of UK inspiration. We’re not saying follow the crowds, but these ace places in the UK are trending right now – and for good reason. 

According to Airbnb, these ten UK destinations are on the up. They’ve seen a noticeable increase in bookings (compared to the same week last year) while people have been looking for accommodation with renewed enthusiasm over the last two weeks, and they are well worth considering if you’re still working out where to spend that well-earned annual leave this summer. 

1. Warton, Lancashire

A village in the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), Warton is surrounded by lush landscapes, like those at Warton Crag. It’s also near the coast and within daytripping distance of the Lake District.

2. Duns, Scottish Borders

This rural spot is ideally located for exploring Berwick-upon-Tweed, the Scottish coastline and the lush countryside south of Edinburgh.

3. Snettisham, Norfolk

Right on the Norfolk coastline, Snettisham is a little village between King’s Lynn and Hunstanton. It’s part of a protected stretch of coastline, RSPB Snettisham, known for its salt marsh and mudflats.

4. Glastonbury, Somerset

We might have missed our festival fix this year, but people are still planning to visit the laidback Somerset town of Glastonbury. Soaking up those hippie vibes, and making use of the surrounding greenery, certainly feels appealing right about now.

 5. Rothbury, Northumberland

The trad market town of Rothbury couldn’t be better placed for exploring the rural wilds of Northumberland. It’s right on the edge of the national park.

 6. Chapel St Leonards, Lincolnshire

A small seaside town complete with technicolour beach huts and a sandy beach, Chapel St Leonards is also worth a visit to see the North Sea Observatory, which offers ace views of the dunes, the waves and local wildlife.

7. Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire

If this photo alone isn’t enough to convince you, Ross-on-Wye is also worth visiting because of its pretty walking routes, ruined castle and proximity to more loveliness in the Wye Valley.

8. Leiston, Suffolk

Pretty Leiston is home to this gorgeous ruined abbey. It’s also a brilliant spot from which to explore nearby Aldeburgh and Thorpeness, and is practically surrounded by nature reserves along the Suffolk coastline.

9. Pickering, Yorkshire

This ancient market town calls itself the gateway to the North Yorkshire Moors, Yorkshire forests and coast. Which sounds entirely dreamy to us.

10. Guildford, Surrey

Not only is this Surrey town super easy to get to from London, it also straddles two amazing green spaces: the South Downs and the Surrey Hills. If hikes, bike rides and country pubs are what you need post lockdown, this is the one.
