However, Mr Bassett has pointed out that camping in certain locations can still be affordable if Britons do their research.
“Camptoo still has availability in June, July and August and with prices starting from £60 per night,” said Mr Bassett.
While holiday cottages or glamping might be the “in” activity for the summer, he also points to alternative options which could reduce costs and allow more freedom.
“Why not try renting a campervan or motorhome for your staycation?” Mr Bassett continued.
“The benefits are that you can enjoy our incredible, diverse country at your own pace whilst remaining within your household bubble.
“Most motorhomes and caravans are also self-contained, which is ideal for self-catering and lessens the need for shared facilities.”

Rory Boland, editor of Which? Travel, said: “While it is, of course, good news to see a test provider reduce its costs, it’s unhelpful that this comes with strings attached in that passengers may have to book with certain airlines.
“More oversight of testing costs across the board is needed to ensure that testing is affordable to all who need or want to travel abroad, whoever they want to book with.
“The Government should look at ways it can work with test providers to reduce the cost of mandatory testing, as many other countries have, to ensure that when international travel resumes, it is safe and affordable for all.”
The Government’s requirement for passengers to take multiple tests, even when travelling to “green list” countries, has also raised some safety concerns among other industry insiders.
