The Ultimate Guide To Your Lockdown Staycation


This is a PR collaboration.

As lockdown rules ease in the UK, it’s tempting to take advantage and treat yourself to a holiday. There’s one problem - hotels aren’t open. A staycation, your number one backup plan, is pretty challenging when you have to return home at the end of the day. A traditional staycation still isn’t on the cards right now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative. With a little bit of ingenuity, you can experience a getaway that you’ll never forget. Isn’t that more appealing than a spot of DIY or a deep clean? Here are the tips that will help.


Camp Out
The great thing about camping is that the experience is similar regardless of the location. You could be in the wilds of Scotland battling the elements, or you could be at home in your garden. Regardless, you get to sleep under the stars in close quarters while cooking food on a stove or BBQ and omitting electronics from your life for a while. Not only is it an excellent way to break up the monotony of lockdown life, but camping out will keep the kids entertained. Children love nothing more than being at one with the Great Outdoors.
Start Early
Britain is a big place, and there are tons of things you can do as long as you roll out of bed early enough in the morning. You may prefer to drive to a town or city that’s nearby and enjoy walking around the streets at a leisurely pace. Alternatively, a Wales end to end bike ride will allow you to take in the beautiful landscapes of a national treasure while exercising hard. Whatever you decide to do, it’s wise to start as early as possible so that you maximise your day and have more than an hour or two.
Have A Picnic
With shops shut until the 15th of June, there’s not much you can do even if you plan a day out. If you’re reading this after the 15th, you’ve probably realised that it’s not the same anyway. Therefore, you need an event to keep you entertained during your staycation, and a picnic is an obvious choice. With a blanket and an array of food, you can go anywhere in the UK and soak up the sun (hopefully). This might be on a beach or in a park. The decision is yours, people!
Book A Hotel
Hotels won’t open until July. However, that’s not far away, not when you’ve spent the past three months on house arrest! The accommodation makes it feel more like a holiday because your surroundings are different, and they should be relatively cheap for the time being. Also, don’t underestimate the power of anticipation. After a challenging period of self-isolation, booking a hotel room for a couple of days will seem like the most luxurious break you’ve ever experienced. 

Hopefully, that’ll be enough to motivate you to stick to your daily grind until society goes back to normal. How will you take a staycation when the time is right?
