The four-part series comes to a close as Cumbria vs Calais.
How we holiday highlights the wealth divide like nothing else—so what happens when people with vastly different incomes swap holidays for a week?
In the final episode of the series, a couple trade their luxury getaway for a campsite in Cumbria and a family gets a taste of the good life in France.
Stuart and Francis from Buckinghamshire spend up to £60,000 a year on holidays and they have high expectations. The couple are super fussy about food and hate rubbing shoulders with other British people on their breaks. Something they may have to get used to on their stay-cation.
The discerning duo are spending this holiday in a basic campsite on the shores of Ullswater Lake in Cumbria. However, they soon discover that this simple stay-cation might have more to offer than they first thought.
Meanwhile, the Warriner family from Scunthorpe have never been on an exclusive getaway in their lives. Dad Mark can earn as little as £100 a week,which limits their holiday options.
This time they are swapping the simple life for a magnificent chateau near Calais in France, complete with chef,swimming pool, beauty salon and luxury yacht. As the week goes on, will the family begin to wonder if all this luxury is really worth it?
