The most wonderful time of the year is nearly upon us, and it may only be five weeks until the big day, but that hasn’t stopped us from bursting with excitement! Even though there is a little way to go until Christmas Day, it seems that the whole of the United Kingdom is starting to join in the festivities with numerous Christmas markets popping up already.
Those of you who know the Quality Unearthed brand, understand our ethos of green living and know how proud we are of our Welsh roots; therefore, any news that put Wales on the map for being a leader in sustainable living and conservation is a big tick with us!
Forgot about the 12 days of Christmas, it’s all about the 12 months of glamping here at Quality Unearthed. Each month, there are exciting events and picturesque views to be enjoyed across the breadth of Britain, and with our helpful guide, you will know exactly which glamping UK abode you should be booking.
There are many benefits to living in the city. One is the vibrant atmosphere that epitomises city life, the constant buzz of events is perfect for those social butterflies out there. City life provides great opportunities for work, and you can guarantee that no one day is the same as the next.
As great as city life can be, it sure can be draining! Plus, the air pollution is something that is really noticeable once you leave the city and make your way to the countryside. And not to dampen readers thoughts of city life, there are limited areas of green space where wildlife plays and true peace and quiet can be appreciated! It is, therefore, no surprise that many urban-dwellers are seeking rural retreats for some well-needed R+R. If this sounds like you, our helpful guide will highlight the type of rural retreats Quality Unearthed have to offer, their benefits and the type of traveller and group they suit.
Britain hasn’t been too kind with the weather this year, and our summer hasn’t particularly been the one we had hoped for! As the days pass by, many of us are left wondering when we will experience the fantastic sunshine the summer season promises us.
Summer is a wonderful season. The sun is shining, and the landscapes come to life with a wealth of wildlife. In the UK, we are lucky enough to have a diverse range of habitats that are suitable for a number of creatures. So, why not make the most of the sunny weather, if you are a nature-loving family, and head to somewhere like Somerset? Our guide to the area and events over the summer will help you plan a wild UK adventure!

Whilst it’s hard to determine the exact price of a family holiday abroad, particularly as it will differ depending on the length of stay, accommodation option and location, the average summer holiday is certainly going up in price, according to a multitude of studies. However, the Evolution Money website has concluded that an average family of four can spend around £4,792 on a two-week holiday abroad, not to mention the additional £227 per person, per week for spending! Quite astonishingly, in a report by Asda Money in 2016, it was highlighted that individuals earning £10,000 a year spent on average 10% of their salary for a single holiday. Subsequently, this report concluded that many would rather stay within the UK for their summer holidays to save money, reflected by the 31% of those who participated in the report who specified their plans for staycations.
