Just five minutes ago it was spring, and we were all wondering what was going to happen to Summer, now it’s almost Christmas, and for many of us, we’re still wondering!
With travel restrictions still firmly in place, it can seem like a pretty bleak time to be planning a holiday, but with the country now reopened and the promise of a vaccine sparkling away in the distance, there’s no reason not to plan a little staycation!
It might not be a good idea to go abroad yet, and even if you do there could be restrictions on where and when you travel, and a quarantine period upon your return.
That means that staycations are in! So grab your personalized travel pack, grab your hat and scarf, and jump in the car ready to go on a fantastic staycation that will be just the break you need.
Here are five things to do on an epic staycation that will help you create some good memories of 2020.
Walking in Snowdonia
The UK has some beautiful hills and national parks, Snowdonia is just one of them. Grab your walking boots and whistle for the dog, because Snowdonia at Christmas time is absolutely beautiful and really must be seen.
If you are taking your dog though, be sure he has everything he needs to keep him safe and warm during your winter trip.
Go to A Drive-In Movie
Ah a night at a drive-in movie, what could be more romantic? Well, it doesn’t have to be romantic! With movies like Love Actually (a Christmas classic) and Frozen 2 playing, this is a great socially distanced activity you can do on your holiday with your family.
Camping in The Cold
Contrary to popular belief, camping is not just a summer hobby! This year has seen an explosion in the popularity of camping, with many more families taking the plunge!
How much does it cost? This full guide from Yougo Camping will give you a great breakdown of exactly what you need to buy and how much it will cost to get you out in your tent, even in winter!
Go for A Winter Meal
Food is at the heart of many people’s Christmas celebrations, but this year it’s been a bit tough to be able to go out. While we’re still being mindful of Tiers and restrictions, why not plan a nice meal for your household somewhere special this festive season?
There are a few places serving pop up outdoor dining, and in London, one restaurant is taking it even further by creating pop-up igloo dining spaces. Perfect for a quick city break!
Gin Tasting to Warm You Up
Something for the adults, a little winter warmer to keep you going through the cold nights.
Staycations are all about enjoying a peaceful time at home but feeling like you’re away on a luxury holiday, so why not indulge yourself with a little naughty but nice gin tasting experience. Go on. You deserve it.
