In terms of pricing, beaches, and popularity, Devon edges out Cornwall as the “best” staycation hotspot.
DEVON and Cornwall both had successful summer seasons, with visitors from all across the country flocking to the southwest. However, based on its holiday offerings, Devon has been deemed the “greatest staycation destination” of the two.
Devon and Cornwall, with their gorgeous natural terrain and azure coastal waters, are among the UK’s most sought-after domestic holiday destinations. However, according to a recent survey, Devon is the “greatest staycation location” of the two.
Experts from hotel booking platform hoo looked at pricing, availability, beaches, and overall tourist numbers to see which of the two southwest regions was the best for vacationing.
When it comes to the expense of a stay, according to hoo’s research, “Devon reigns top.”
They discovered that the average hotel room tariff in Devon over a long bank holiday weekend is £155 per night.
According to the survey, a similar stay in Cornwall will cost £172 per night, which is 10.6% more expensive.
Cornwall may have the fewest options available for people who have yet to book a vacation.
Despite the fact that both Devon and Cornwall are nearly bursting at the seams with visitors, Britons have a “better chance” of finding a place to stay in Devon based on current availability.
According to hoo, 98 percent of Cornish accommodation is already booked, while 96 percent of Devon accommodation is.
Holidaymakers who intend to visit either destination should make preparations as soon as possible, given the high booking rates.
Both places are known for their beautiful beaches and breathtaking coastlines when it comes to vacation activities.
“Both places have some of the best beaches in the UK, but Devon gets the top spot once again in this regard,” according to the research by hoo.
Blue Flag awards were used to reach this decision by the experts.
These internationally recognized awards evaluated beaches on their overall quality, as well as the water, environmental factors, and safety.
Cornwall has a good ten Blue Flag beaches, while Devon outnumbers Cornwall by two, with 12 beaches receiving the prestigious title.
Among them are Blackpool Sands Beach, Dawlish Warren Beach, Exmouth Beach, Oddicombe Beach Sidmouth Town Beach and Westward Ho! Beach.
The proof of Devon’s attraction, according to experts, can be seen in its annual domestic tourism stats.
Cornwall is a popular tourist destination, with roughly 3.2 million Britons going there each year. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
