Staycation-ing

The prospects of being able to go abroad this year are still very slim for many of us.  But don’t despair because this is the year of the staycation! Everyone needs to take a break from the day to day grind. Whether you use your staycation to relax at home or get out and explore, you are sure to feel rejuvenated. The team here at Becky Broome have mastered the art of staycation-ing this year and been everywhere from the Lake District to London, from Scotland down to the south coast and even to our very own Liverpool. We’ve come up with some of our top tips to make sure your staycation rivals any holiday abroad.

Play Tourist

It’s easy in the hustle and bustle of of everyday day life to miss what’s on your doorstep. Playing tourist in your own city or local area is a great way to rediscover a love of where you live! Spend your days at the museums, galleries and tourist attractions that you would normally just pass by. Or just wander around soaking in all the beauty of your city and the people in it. Eat out at restaurants that you’ve always wanted to go to but never got the chance. Find the hidden gems of your area and make the most of where you live!

Go Further Afield

Conversely get out and explore somewhere a bit further afield! The UK has some of the most stunning scenery in the world and it’s right on our doorstep. Go on a metropolitan city break and enjoy shopping,  lunching and people watching. Get your hiking boots on and go out walking in one of the many stunning national parks located up and down the country. Want nothing more than to lie on a beach? Head down to the south coast and the English Riviera for beaches stretching as far as the eye can see, peaceful hidden coves and quaint fishing villages.

Be Prepared

Who doesn’t love a good plan? It is so important to at least have a basic outline of what you want to do on your staycation to make it as stress free as possible. That doesn’t mean you can’t deviate from the plan though, sometimes the most spontaneous activities are the best! Making sure you are prepared with enough snacks and entertainment for any travelling and down time is so important too. Especially if you are bringing kids along! This also helps keep those extra little costs down so that you are well within your budget.

Get Active

The UK is the perfect destination for an active adventure break. Hiking, cycling, kayaking, climbing, surfing…the list goes on and on. Getting out into the fresh country air and trying out an activity that you love or have always wanted to try is a great way to add a bit of excitement to your staycation. Maybe there is even something a little more daring like caving, canyoning or paragliding that you’ve always wanted to try but never been brave enough to. Why not just take the plunge and go for it?

Unplug & Unwind

We are constantly plugged into our devices nowadays, and it can be a little all consuming. Especially in the last year when there has been little else to do! Taking a break from it all could be exactly what you need to reset and refresh. Don’t worry about what’s happening on social media or in the daily news update, just be present and in the moment. Eat when you’re hungry and sleep when you’re tired! Enjoy some quality time with your friends and family. Or simply spend some quiet time alone doing the things you love.
