Holkham features in list of top safe staycation destinations according to Instagram data
Holkham features in a list of the top eight holiday spots for socially distanced and safe staycations in the UK this year.
Self-catering accommodation experts Lakelovers drew up the list, according to Instagram data, and describes the destinations as all currently safe to travel to thanks to Tier 1 restrictions.
Holkham was eighth on the list and is described as "a small village and civil parish home to the magnificent Holkham Hall, Holkham Bay and its National Nature Reserve where the seafront wildlife reserve can be visited on the beach front. This region is such a peaceful spot to visit with a relaxing, slow-paced atmosphere."
Keswick, Sevenoaks, and Bury St Edmunds were the top three socially distanced staycation destinations, according to the Instagram data.
The popular trends app is helping travellers decide which beauty spot they should visit next. Though typically showcasing tourist hotspots, Instagram data has identified areas that are not only beautiful, but most likely to support social distancing.
With a quarter of people saying they are looking to holiday within the UK until a Covid-19 vaccine is found and 18% saying they prefer a staycation holiday regardless, the demand for holidays on home soil has risen in 2020, with the requirement to find a safe and beautiful holiday spot to enjoy looking set to stay.
