HOLIDAYS in England can go ahead at self-contained holiday lets from April 12, the Prime Minister has announced, so long as coronavirus rates continue to fall.

A surge in holiday bookings for breaks in July and August are expected following today's announcement.

From April 12 people from the same household will be able to book self-contained holiday lets such as holiday homes.

From May 17, hotels are allowed to reopen and holiday homes can be let to groups of up to six people from different households or groups from two households with no cap on size.

From June 21, holiday homes can be let to groups of all sizes.

It is worth noting that dates for coming out of lockdown are not set in stone, and holidays will only happen on the condition that coronavirus cases continue to fall and vaccines still roll out at pace. 

For those who haven't yet booked a staycation, there are some great deals on self-catered accommodation.

Some of the best deals are:

  • Haven July seven-night breaks from £480 per stay 
  • Hoseasons three-night breaks from £159 per stay 
  • Park Holidays three-night breaks in Essex, Devon, Kent, Suffolk and Sussex from £194 per stay 
  • Pontins staycation sale from £62 per family
  • Norfolk three-night breaks from £569
  • Holiday homes, lodges and cottages three-night August breaks from £299 per stay 
  • Shorefield Holidays from £509 per stay 
  • Breakfree best holiday park deals for Park Dean from £79
  • Hotel rooms with from £49 per room

There's self-catered accommodation at a number of popular holiday destinations in the UK, including Suffolk and Sussex.

Back in January The Health Secretary Matt Hancock said Brits should be able to enjoy a "happy and free Great British summer" once most adults have received the Covid jab.

And despite the restrictions, a number of Brits booked holidays in England earlier in the year.

This led to holiday companies predicting a sell-out summer of staycations as bookings surged.

In fact, some families have even put on waiting lists for Cornwall.

Now, as long as coronvarius cases continue to fall and the vaccine rollout continues as planned, Brits can finally book a staycation.

International travel, however, is still on hold.
