Devon is the best staycation destination
From beaches and rock pools to Devonshire cream teas and ice cream, the summer holidays are in full swing and with foreign travel limited, Devon is seeing a revival of love having been voted as the best staycation destination.
The latest research by hotel booking platform hoo has looked to settle the debate of which is better when it comes to a staycation destination - Devon or Cornwall. The research shows that when it comes to a short-term staycation, Devon wins.
The average hotel room rate for a long bank holiday weekend in Devon comes in at £155 per night. The same stay in Cornwall will cost you £172 per night, 10.6% more expensive. 98% of Cornish accommodation is also already booked up, while in Devon it's just 96%, meaning you have a better chance of finding somewhere to book in the first place.
Cornwall is home to a respectable 10 Blue Flag-awarded beaches, but in Devon, this number climbs to 13.
Finally, the latest data shows that just over 3.2million holidaymakers head to Cornwall in a single year but Devon takes the crown as the busiest tourist hotspot with over 3.4m visitors per year.
