If you’re getting a bit sick of visiting the same places, staying in the same hotels, and basking on the same beaches, you’re not the only one. Sure, you know you can go away and have a relaxing time when you book into the same resort for the tenth year in a row, but you need a new adventure right now!
Which means it’s time to shake up your holiday plans! The kids especially will love this new journey to go, and the new surroundings to explore, and it’s always refreshing to let your soul soak up a new experience after a hard year of work. Check out our ideas below to decide on your next destination.
Stay on a Farm
Farm stays are sought after in the UK, thanks to just how many domestic animals we breed each year. Little lambs and goat kids, pigs and chickens, as well as ducklings and goslings – they’re all a dream to be around. And the kids will love having their own mini petting zoo to stay in! So take a look at farms near you and see if they offer caravans or a BnB experience and get booked in.
Try Out Glamping
Glamping, or glamorous camping, is a lovely way to get outdoors without throwing out all the modcons of a hotel visit. Indeed, glamping has become very popular over the past 10 years, and setting up camp with running water, wifi access, and good food always available is a great way to spend the summer holiday. You can still have an adventure in the great outdoors, but with less complaints and far fewer bug bites!
Hop on a Train
Train tours and railway holidays have long been a favourite of the UK population. We have a lot of old, vintage, and beautiful stations and tracks to explore, so it’s no wonder! You can sleep, eat, and socialise on the train, and get off at any station to have a look around nearby sights before hopping back on again. And even though this option tends to be a bit pricier, travel is included and so are all the sleeper cabin amenities. So, if you’ve always been enchanted by stories like Murder on the Orient Express, this is definitely the holiday for you!
Get Close Up with Wildlife
If you’re an animal lover, you’ll absolutely adore being able to get up close and personal with various wildlife on a wildlife holiday of any kind. You can stay in woods, camping fields that are teeming with natural habitats, and even nearby boutique hotels that boast amazing views of famous moorlands. Whilst you’re there you can witness owls and other birds of prey, otters and stoats, voles and moles, badgers and hedgehogs, as well as foxes and their litters (if you go early enough in the year).
If you’re getting bored of your usual holiday haunts, try out more creative ideas like those above. They’re great for adults and kids alike.
