Duchy Holidays Sees Rise in Demand for Stress-Free Coastal Holidays

Holiday companies are seeing a rise in demand from holidaymakers who prefer to take a coastal holiday in the United Kingdom because it's less stressful than travelling abroad.

Cornish holiday company Duchy Holidays has welcomed a report that says breaks on the British coast can help enhance relationships and reduce stress.

Commenting on a Holiday Trends survey, conducted by independent research consultancy BDRC in collaboration with the National Coastal Tourism Academy (NCTA), Duchy Holidays says the report echoes the feedback it receives from its customers who increasingly choose a Cornish beach break for a stress-free family holiday.

The report compiled from feedback from over 1,000 holidaymakers found that 80% said a domestic seaside escape had brought them closer together, while 78% agreed that the holiday reduced stress.

Samantha Richardson, NCTA director, said: “We’ve seen previous research linking a perceived improvement in well-being by visiting the coast but this new research demonstrates that it can be significantly beneficial to relationships and that coastal holidays score more highly than other types of holiday on a number of levels.

“This is really exciting research with huge implications for coastal destinations, showing the importance of building relationships with visitors and providing a family-friendly welcome.”

The report concludes that the main reasons for choosing to stay in the UK include scenery and landscape, safety and ease of travel.

Michelle Robertson from Duchy Holidays commented: “We repeatedly receive feedback from customers who say they’ve had a fantastic family holiday here in Perranporth. They choose Cornwall over far-flung holiday destinations because it’s less hassle and they know they can have a relaxing break when they get here.”

The Perranporth based holiday lettings agency represents a growing portfolio of self-catering cottages, houses and apartments in the Perranporth area of Cornwall. The company prides itself on providing a ‘home away from home’ for its guests and ensuring they have everything they could need for an enjoyable break.

Michelle Robertson added: “For many people, simply getting away and spending time together as a family is the most important factor in a holiday. It’s our aim to make everything run smoothly so they can enjoy a rewarding holiday and spend quality time together during their Cornish coastal break.”
