If you're anything like us, you'll be climbing the walls in anticipation of a much-needed break!

With lockdown restrictions easing, the holiday horizon is looking temptingly golden. But there's still a lot of uncertainty around, so how can you be sure that if you book that getaway now, you're not going to be disappointed later?

Well, we've got a solution for you: choose a UK staycation that offers FREE cancellation* over the summer season. That way, you can relax in the knowledge that should measures start tightening up again, you won't have to take a financial hit.

Do such hallowed places exist, we hear you ask?  

You'll be happy to know that they do - and we've got a list of some right here!

* as the finer details/dates of each cancellation policy will differ between properties, please ensure you enquire with the owner/operator directly before booking for full details and applicable dates
