Best destinations for a girly weekend in the UK

August 20, 2015

Every now and then, we girls need a bit of quality time with our girly friends. It’s our time to catch up and gossip about our annoying neighbours or demanding bosses. If you lead a busy life you might not see your girls as often as you’d like to, so a couple of hours at a coffee shop isn’t enough. A good idea is to go on a girly weekend away, choose a destination where you can let your hair down and do something that you will all enjoy. Whether that is at a spa hotel or somewhere a little more adventurous, here are some of the best destinations to choose from.

Pakefield Pontins

You may think that Pontins is more appropriate for a weekend with the children, but if you are only looking for a short break on a budget, it is ideal. You are just a walking distance away from the beach, and there is entertainment on in the evenings where you can have a good ‘boogie’. Ukbreakaways often have good deals on Pontins sites so be sure to check out their website.

Hallmark Hotel Manchester, Cheshire

If you prefer something a bit more luxurious, Hallmark Hotel Manchester is a modern boutique-styled hotel that is located near Cheshire’s beautiful countryside villages. They have attached spa facilities to provide you with the ultimate pampering weekend. You are not too far from the city centre either, so hop on a train or book a taxi and go for a few drinks in the local bars and nightclubs.

Hire a campervan

If you fancy something a little different, why not hire a campervan and set off on a road trip for the weekend. You can enjoy the freedom to stay where you please. I recommend Cornwall as you can head off to a beach; find some country pubs and wake up to stunning views of beautiful Cornish coastlines.

Umi Hotel Brighton Seafront, Brighton

Popular for hen weekends in the UK, Brighton is the party capital of the South coast and usually enjoys the warmest weather in the UK. Go for afternoon tea, take a walk on the beach, and take a look around the gorgeous, vintage shops. The Umi Hotel is three star accommodation that is opposite the beach. You are also in walking distance from the pier and Pavilion. They have free WiFi so you can check up that everyone is well at home.
