The Lake District attracts nearly 16 millions visitors each year and it’s not surprising why!

Offering beautiful scenery, 16 tranquil lakes and more than 150 high peaks including England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike, there really is something for everyone to enjoy!

As such we wanted to share with you a few great places to stay as well as fun activities for you to partake in when planning your visit there. 

sidingThe Story of Rail Holiday St Germans:

Let’s go back in time to 1992 where this story begins!

Meet Dave and Lizzy Stroud, a young couple looking for that perfect family home. When one day they happened upon a derelict train station that they decided to purchase.

Little did they know at this time that this one decision would change the course of their lives forever! 


Were all going on a summer holidayOkay so the title is cheesy I know, but did it get you singing the next line of the famous Cliff Richard song..."No more working for a week or two"?

Here at Quirky our property owners have been busy keeping up to date with all the regulations for safe opening this summer and many have gone above and beyond, making changes to their sites, to ensure your safety when visiting!

We wanted to share with you the most up to date news about the UK opening up this summer and to tell you about a few of our fabulous Safe Stay properties.

So here we are, Christmas 2020 is fast approaching and like most people, I didn’t expect Covid-19 to still be a part of our lives. However we must all try and stay positive and instead of focussing on the doom and gloom, instead see this as an opportunity to do something totally different! To change life up a bit and do something memorable so you don't look back on Christmas 2020 as a wash out, but instead  as the year that you made different traditions! Here is where QuirkyAccom can come to your rescue. 


Instead of having a traditional Christmas with all the family around the tree and the typical Christmas dinner with roast turkey and all the trimmings, why not try a glamping holiday, a treehouse staycation or hire a cottage with friends. Different rules and regulations mean that here at QuirkyAccom we know all our ideas may not be suitable for everyone, due to tiers and lockdowns, but we would love to highlight some different properties that could just offer you the unique Christmas you need this year. 

eco meaning 1In today's world there is a lot of focus on being eco-friendly. Whether that means you do your recycling, upcycle your clothes and furniture or use more environmentally friendly products there are a lot of ways to support our environment. But have you heard of Ecotourism?

I came upon this phrase recently so wanted to delve a little more into this subject and to share my findings with you. Ecotourism at its most basic is low-impact tourism directed towards natural environments. These are often exotic, threatened, natural environments which ecotourism intends to support through conservation efforts and observing wildlife.

This doesn’t seem to fit with many people’s image of the UK and instead conjures up images of more tropical areas, however the UK has its part to play in this type of travel.
