The restaurant scene is a major draw for visitors
Cornwall has been named a top staycation hotspot for 2020 – with more than one in three Brits looking to book a visit this year.
A new survey of more than 2,000 people by Caterer.com, the UK hospitality job board, revealed seven in ten Brits are looking to holiday at home twice this year, adding £27 billion to the UK economy.
Cornwall’s restaurant scene is considered to be a major drawcard – with nearly one in five (14%) considering it a foodie hotspot.
A popularity increase in the staycation industry has also sparked a hospitality jobs boom as hotels, restaurants and bars hire to keep up with growing demand. More than 315,000 jobs were advertised on Caterer.com last year.
Unfortunately, Cornwall has narrowly missed out for 2020, as the Lake District has been declared the top staycation spot, with nearly half (45%) of people considering holidaying in this location.
