Michaela Strachan, TV presenter and outdoor enthusiast said: “You might think that people holiday here because they don’t want the hassle of getting on a plane or ferry, so it’s interesting to hear that our beautiful scenery is the main attraction.
While parents have seen some great spots with their children, the research also showed us that three quarters are worried that computer games and social media act as a distraction when it comes to getting their kids outside. Going on a UK break is a great way to get outside with the family, enjoy the gorgeous scenery, experience nature and come back feeling thoroughly refreshed. There are so many campsites in stunning areas across the UK, hitching up a caravan or hiring a camper is one of the best ways to get out and about to see what our country has to offer."
