Five Reasons Why a Staycation is the Right Choice For You

Holidays abroad are wonderful- but that's not to say that you should overlook the country you live in when it comes to travel and having fun. Here are just five reasons to consider a staycation.

The scenery 
You may not know it, but the UK is packed full to the brim of breath-taking scenery with lakes, mountains, hills and idyllic beaches galore. With so many little-known hidden gems to explore, why wouldn’t you want to take a staycation?

You can bring your pets 
This one is a double whammy. Pets are a huge part of so many of our lives, with dogs being as much a member of the family as anyone else. Bringing your pets along on your staycations means that you can enjoy the trip as a complete family, but not only this, you also don’t have to worry about finding a pet sitter! When researching your selected accommodation, look for pet Friendly self-catering, Lakelovers offer a vast array of Dog friendly cottages, that come fully equipped with everything you’d need to look after your four-legged friend. 

No luggage restrictions 
Packing stress is most definitely a real thing, especially when you have certain airline luggage restrictions to abide by. The lead up to baggage drop off is often a daunting one, even after you’ve attempted a couple of at home weigh-ins, panicked repacking included of course. If you’re travelling as a family, ensuring you have enough space for everything that is required when holidaying with little ones is practically impossible when flying out of the UK – 20KG doesn’t even touch the sides! Taking a staycation means that you can pack up the car to your full content, bringing everything but the kitchen sink, as they say.

You can save money 
Holidaying abroad can be expensive, and staycations are a great way to get away from it all, without having to fork out too many pennies. Thanks to the great weather we’ve been having in the UK, there really is no need to go abroad, with beautiful sun-soaked beaches abundant, and money left to spare for those all-important fish and chips.

No travel traumas 
Delayed flights, missed connections, airport security and dare we say it…lost luggage! There are so many trials and tribulations that come with travelling abroad, all of which can be avoided simply with a staycation.

Have you ever thought about taking a staycation? If not, why not! There’s no better time to get out and about and explore the beautiful country we live in, and enjoy some quality time with family and friends
