101 Holidays launches UK breaks site

101 Holidays has launched the latest in its series of themed websites with a new focus on the potentially huge domestic market.

With the government not doing anything to encourage international travel, there is expected to be a surge in interest for UK breaks, once the hospitality sector gets the green light to ramp up operations in July.

 

Created in the past month, each of the entries on 101 UK Holidays is personally recommended by a team of seven travel writers and covers everything from luxury resorts in the Highlands to cottages in Snowdonia National Park and fishermen’s huts in Whitstable.

 

“About six weeks ago we predicted the current fiasco and set about creating a new site wholly dedicated to post-lockdown UK holidays,” said 101 Holidays editor Mark Hodson. “We asked our team to all nominate their favourite places - with a strong focus on wilderness, self-catering, nature and uncrowded places – then pulled together these ideas.”

 

The site isn’t monetised and there are no affiliate links, Hodson explained, adding it was created just in the interests of offering a resource and planning tool.

“It might sound cheesy, but we had time on our hands and genuinely wanted to create an amazing resource for people to find great UK holidays and to help support some of the best domestic tourism businesses,” Hodson said.

 

“If agents want to use the site to get ideas, or share it with their customers, we’d be delighted. The more people know about it, the better for everyone.”

 

The site includes ideas bookable through operators such as Headwater, McKinlay Kidd and Ramblers, as well as individual hotels such as Lucknam Park and Whatley Manor.
