As February half-term falls around 6 to 7 weeks after the new year, many families choose to use this time to spend some time on a UK short break. Why bother with the hassle of packing your luggage and driving to the airport, with its many queues and hassles when you can drive a few hours at most in many cases and enjoy a break that’s right for you, in the UK or Ireland. The downside of course is that you can find a fairly cheap short-haul European holiday, which in many cases is cheaper than ‘staycating’ more locally.
