Taking a holiday in the UK rather than abroad is on the rise as more and more UK citizens are ‘staycationing’ in the UK.

Online PR News – 16-August-2009 – – Taking a holiday in the UK rather than abroad is on the rise as more and more UK citizens are ‘staycationing’ in the UK.

The growing holiday trend is a welcome boost to resorts that have had a good spring clean over the years to try and persuade more people to give Britain another chance.

And with the kids finished for the summer, destinations like Devon, Wales and Newquay are expecting to see thousands of holiday makers travel the length and breadth of the country for some good old English weather.

The figures released by website http://travelsupermarket.com saw that seaside resorts are doing particularly well due to the great summer weather we had earlier this year.

One resort that has been doing particularly well is Newquay, the popular surfing and beachside resort for all ages.

Bob Atkinson, a travel expert at the website, said there has also been an increase in the short breaks. “We have seen lots of people looking at camping and cottages, not just B&B’s and hotels.”

And there has been good news on the job front too. Businesses in traditional holiday areas have taken on more staff as more and more tourists flock to holiday destinations in the UK.

John Larke, of the Cornwall Development Company, said it had noticed that high-end hotels were doing well and campsites were full, but middle-market businesses were not enjoying such a good season. “We think that people are downsizing from the middle,” he said. “We have been helped by the good weather. We are just hoping it continues.”

Newquay has seen thousands of students, young families; pensioners and couples flock to the seaside resort to get the most of the British weather.

With the increase in tourism many Newquay hotels on http://iknow-cornwall.co.uk have improved their hotels and other accommodations to attract more people to the holiday destination.

The http://iknow-cornwall.co.uk website has a wide range of different types of property available on the website. From self catering cottages to Newquay hotels, guests to the website can view a collection of properties which suit their needs and requirements.

The website is the perfect platform for both property owners and holiday makers for a variety of different reasons.

Properties within the same area are listed under their own category on their website. For example Cornwall has a range of towns and villages within so http://www.iknow-uk.com have categorised each town geographically so it is easier for visitors to choose their specific destination.

This tool is also perfect for property owners advertising their property online as they can categorise their property into its own area. For example if you have Newquay hotels on the Newquay coast the website has designed its own sections and further categorised it into areas along the coast like St Agnes, Camborne and Redruth.

Property owners can also feature a wide range of information about their accommodation and its availability on their own profile page.

The http://www.iknow-cornwall.co.uk website which focuses on Cornwall hotels allows property owners to upload a calendar to the site showing when the property is available or if there are any rooms free.

Property owners can also include pictures and detailed information about their property as well as listing its location and visitor attractions close by.

This layout is the perfect way for holiday makers to choose the perfect destination and hotel for their holiday with minimal fuss or hassle.
