While heading off on holiday is something that has been put on hold for us all right now, many of us are taking this time to think about where we would like to go once life returns to normal, as getting away for a break will be very welcome after spending so much of our time at home. With so many beautiful places to visit right here at home, why not opt for a staycation, save a little money and get to know the Great British countryside a little better.

This is an excellent option for retired couples who might want to stick to a budget or would like to holiday close to home. Here are some of the best UK holiday ideas for retired couples to consider for their next break.

Take a Walking Holiday

Getting out into the great outdoors has a number of benefits, from keeping you fit and healthy, to boosting your mood. This means that a walking holiday is an excellent choice if you want to get away and switch off from it all for a little while.

Lancashire and the Lake District is the perfect place to be to get the most out of the outdoors with beautiful sights and fantastic walking routes. Make sure to check out our blog for updates on some of the best walks in the local area such as the best walks around Arnside & Silverdale.

Visit Somewhere with Plenty of Attractions

If you choose to take a staycation, one of the things to consider will be how much there is to see and do in the local area. Thankfully, when you stay at one of our holiday parks, you will find that there are plenty of attractions and activities to enjoy nearby.

With the Lake District located so close, it doesn’t take long at all to make your way into the national park so you can explore the area. From boat cruises on Lake Windermere to the many National Trust sites, you’ll find no end of things to do when you visit this beautiful part of the country.

Invest in a Holiday Home

When you have your own holiday home, you can enjoy staycations all year round whenever you feel like you need a getaway, whether for just a weekend or longer. Staying in a holiday home gives you the opportunity to get out and explore the local area while enjoying a cosy home away from home which offers all the benefits of camping with a few more luxuries!

Our Holgates holiday parks are located close to the Lake District so you will be perfectly placed to enjoy everything the national park and the surrounding areas has to offer, from wonderful walking routes to tempting local food options.

With a number of facilities at our parks, you can enjoy your time at the park itself as well as when you get out and about to explore.
