“Foreign travel is a bit of a pipe dream at the moment – so it’s good to know you can visit places as exotic as Bermuda without even leaving Warwickshire,” a report on the Coventry Live website said, referring to an English village in Warwickshire which was named after a local landowner who was the former Governor of Bermuda.

The article by Coventry Live said, “Foreign travel is a bit of a pipe dream at the moment – so it’s good to know you can visit places as exotic as Bermuda without even leaving Warwickshire. Granted, it’s got a more industrial estates and fewer unspoilt beaches than its island namesake but you will get bragging rights.

“The village just outside Nuneaton is just one of a number of places in the UK with names which evoke romance and adventure.

“And they’re being highlighted by Love Home Swap, which has launched a guidebook called Around the World in Britain.

“It comes as the coronavirus lockdown means travel abroad can be difficult, with holidaymakers forced to quarantine on returning from a number of destinations. Those who are unable to work from home simply can’t afford to take the time off after already going on holiday.”

A Love Home Swap spokesperson said: “It’s well-documented that staycations are experiencing a boom this summer as British holidaymakers can’t or won’t travel abroad.

“However, just because a household might choose to holiday on home soil doesn’t mean they can’t say they’re travelling to the likes of California, Bermuda or New York.

“While they might look and feel very different from their international namesakes, the UK destinations with foreign names are nonetheless wonderful spots to holiday in this year.”

The entry for Bermuda in Warwickshire reads as follows: “Bermuda was named after a local landowner who was the former Governor of the islands of Bermuda.

“Bermuda was originally a small pit village to house workers of a nearby colliery. Today it is the archetypal English village, with rows of brick cottages and leafy streets. It’s a short drive from Kenilworth Castle, Stratford-upon-Avon and was once visited by TV’s Andi Peters.”
