There is always a slight risk when you take a holiday in the UK. That risk is also known as the Great British Weather.
Avoiding adverse meteorological conditions is a primary thought for most when they book a holiday. Many a man, woman or child has demanded a holiday with a single prerequisite: sun. We all need a bit of sunshine and warmth in our lives, and let’s be honest, Mother Nature doesn’t often seem to provide that for us on these isles of ours.
But why is our weather so changeable? And what can we do to avoid it?
Last year, Spring saw some of the best weather and hottest temperatures on record. A miserable summer was also followed by a prolonged Indian summer, which saw temperatures close to 30 degrees at the start of October. These bizarre fluctuations are by and large because the British Isles sit on the Gulf stream, and also between one of the biggest water masses on Earth and the biggest land mass around. This sandwich effect means strange weather patterns are almost ievitable.
Abroad, Forecasters can sometimes predict weather patterns accurately up to 2 months ahead; in the UK, they simply can’t provide any solid predictions beyond a week in advance. This is why booking a UK camping holiday is always a risk.
But there is a solution! Grabbing one of the UK’s luxurious holiday cottages gives you the best of both worlds should the weather sweep across unpredictably like a deflating balloon. You’ve got a comfortable indoor location to eat, sleep and drink – plus you can take all manner of entertainment from home to keep you happy. And should our weather choose to grace you with its good side, you’ve also got the perfect base to spring forth quickly and soak up any sunshine that emerges from the gloom.
So get a holiday cottage in 2012 and enjoy the best of both worlds!
