THE pent-up need for holidays in 2021 is going to be even bigger than the summer of 2020, thanks to a winter of lockdown and tiers.
The UK’s top holiday spots are expecting another bumper season too, thanks to families being reluctant to risk another summer of quarantine restrictions.
The country is packed with beauty spots, but there are a few holiday destinations that will be particularly popular.
Holidaycottages.co.uk have revealed the areas on the top of Brits’ bucket lists for 2021, and Cornwall is No.1 on the list, followed by the Scottish Highlands and Devon.
Charles Millward, the owner of Staycation Holidays, told The Times: “People should be worried about finding availability next year, a lot of dates are already taken because they will have been moved from this year – one of our properties only has three weekends free next year from March til September.
"In general our properties will increase in price next year by 20 per cent to recoup the cost owners lost during the lockdown. One property we're booking for next year has gone up by 50 per cent."
TOP STAYCATION DESTINATIONS FOR 2021
- Scottish Highlands

- Yorkshire Dales
- Peak District
- The Cotswolds

Last week, we revealed that families wanting an Easter holiday in Britain in 2021 are being warned to book now – as the cheap deals aren't likely to be found next year.
While many are likely to be waiting for the January sales, these are unlikely to happen this time around.
National Caravan Council's (NCC) Louise Wood explained many are offering bigger bargains now, as they struggle to survive the winter season.
She told Sun Online Travel: "There are bookings for Easter now – you need to look now because I don't think there is going to be the usual January offers you are going to get.
"They won't offer them because parks are fairly confident that they will get the bookings."
Holiday parks and resorts faced a summer booking boom this year, despite the lockdowns and coronavirus, due to the travel bans to popular overseas locations such as Spain and Greece.
This meant many had a record-breaking year for bookings while others sold out, and are already experiencing 2021 bookings.
