With the news that all adults in the UK are set to receive the Covid-19 vaccine by autumn, things are looking up for summer holidays this year. Ahead of unrolling the jab rollout plan, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said that the nation could forward to a “brilliant summer” and told Times Radio: “I’ve booked my cottage in Cornwall.” A wise move, Mr Hancock.

Some accommodation providers are reporting bookings as far in advance as 2023; and the Professional Association of Self-Caterers UK, has warned that forward bookings for self-catering accommodation are up 65 per cent this quarter, compared to last year – and those that don’t book soon will be looking at the ‘leftovers’.

Art-lovers should first make a beeline for Frome and Bruton, two towns now on the radar in East Somerset.
