To expect a reasonably priced holiday any time this year?

I have been searching high and low for 2 weeks in August for a UK family holiday that is within a reasonable price. Unfortunately all the nice places are either booked or seriously overcharged. In contrast, when I look on Spanish properties on Airbnb they are ridiculously cheap. I'm wondering whether to book a foreign break and hope for the best, or just resign myself to the fact that we are not going anywhere this year?

August in the UK will be hugely overpriced because of the pandemic. To be honest, even pre pandemic it was pretty bad. Have you looked at air b n b in august in the UK? Would you consider camping on a nice site (no idea if there is availability!)

Another thing is I saw Guernsey/Channel Islands/IOW advertised recently, maybe worth looking there?

Have you tried going a bit further out? Like villages surrounding Edinburgh or wherever you would like to go? What price do you consider reasonable?

Although I'm in the same position, I think you are unreasonable to expect it.
