Following the restrictions lifting for UK stays, we are delighted to welcome you back to our portfolio of self-catered apartments in some of the most desirable coastal locations across the UK. We know that holiday preferences and priorities have shifted following the pandemic, with people seeking seaside and countryside over city-breaks.
To help you plan for Spring and Summer, we have outlined the travel trends we think are set to shape 2021 stays, and have recommended our “Plum Pick” to cater to this trend, pairing you with the perfect stay!
The thought of lying on a sandy beach, swimming in the sea and tucking into fish and chips has been on many people’s minds for months now! Devon has numerous beautiful beaches, from pebbled coves, to long stretches of golden sand and great surfing beaches. Check out our blog on Devon’s Best Beaches to find your favourite and start planning!

Work From Anywhere > WFH
With the working from home trend dominating and changing our livelihoods, start-ups to corporates are allowing their employees to work from anywhere as long as they can perform their jobs, so employees are not constrained to their bedroom offices only. People have realised they do not need to be in an office and commuting hours a day, and they are not chained to their homes either! Remote working anywhere in the UK is the perfect balance of a flexible and fun way to make the most of your weekends without the rush and hassle of weekends away.
Plum Pick: Royal William Yard 15 Mills
There’s nothing worse than finding the ideal apartment for your holiday, then finding out they refuse your pooch! The added faff, expense and logistics of booking your dog into a doggy daycare is far from ideal, especially when you would love them to join you on your seaside stay. At Plumlocations, we are dog people, and totally understand they are part of the family and shouldn’t be left behind, so check out our dog friendly apartments so the whole family can come along! Most of our apartments are dog friendly, so just look out for the paws in the description.

The pandemic has forced many families to be apart from extended periods of times, with limited contact that isn’t via Zoom!

We have planned a varied and exciting 7-day itinerary with something for everyone in Plymouth, check it out here!

Exploring close to home has been an underrated yet inevitable trend for 2021, as with the limit on foreign travel and the threat of quarantine, domestic travel is now a far more appealing scenario. Luckily, the UK boasts a myriad of options for exploring, relaxing and admiring scenery, with the South West coast being by far the most sought-after hotspot. Staycations as a stepping stone to more exotic holidays, and encourage people to appreciate what is on their doorstep without having to fly halfway round the world!
