Holiday dreaming: rural UK minibreaks for a summer staycation
Finally, we can see a light at the end of the tunnel. While foreign travel will be unlikely this summer, we should be a whole lot more mobile from 17 May, and hopefully entirely free from the shackles of lockdown by 21 June. But with talk of UK rental properties in idyllic locations already booking up, you don't want to leave it too late to book that holiday.
Property rental services are adapting their terms to suit the demands of our increasingly uncertain times, with some including boutique booking site Plum Guide now offering full refunds on all properties to those who have to cancel trips because of coronavirus restrictions. (And as an added sweetener, Culture Whisper readers will receive 10% off bookings on Plum Guide worth £400+ with the code PLUMTRAVEL10 if you book before the end of February.)
Here are some gorgeous UK escapes to plan now and enjoy later.
