As many of us have discovered over the last month or so, the British countryside abounds with gorgeous scenery, honey-hued villages and beaches that could be mistaken for the sandy shores of more exotic climes.
In fact, there isn't much we don't love about a UK staycation, aside from the fact they mean playing constant Russian roulette with the weather. This is particularly a concern as we come to the end of the summer. Where's best to book for some autumn sunshine?
Luckily, Pound Toy has done the hard work for us, delving into a plethora of UK hotspots – and crunching the temperatures – to determine which ones came out on top weather-wise.
So, if you don't fancy trudging around in wellies and a raincoat, then you'll want to start looking for hotels or holiday cottages in the Isle of Wight.
The island, just off the coast of Portsmouth, was found to have the highest summer temperatures on average — something that will likely carry on through to the colder months too.
Carmarthenshire and Norfolk (a family staycation hotspot and home to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) also came up trumps, recording higher-than-average temperatures for the UK this year.
So, while we can't promise swimwear and sunglasses-weather through until December, we do know that a holiday here is probably a safe bet if you're a family of sun-seekers!
