UK Holidays for Retired Couples


No matter what stage you are in your life, everyone deserves a well earned break. With so many people choosing to holiday in the UK, it can be a minefield to choose where to go and what to do especially if you’re an older couple. That’s why we’ve put together some ideas for UK holidays for retired couples to consider for their next break.

There are so many beautiful places to visit right here at home, so why not opt for a staycation, save a little money and get to know the Great British countryside a little better. Discover UK holidays for retired couples at Holgates. 

Own your own Holiday Home












Owning your own holiday home means you can enjoy staycations all year round, whenever you want! Whenever you feel like you need a weekend break, or longer, you have the freedom to come and go as you please.

Owning a holiday home also gives you the opportunity to get out and explore the local area. You can explore natural beauty spots or head in to local market towns for a bit of shopping. Whatever you choose to do, you can enjoy a cosy home away from home with a whole host of benefits!

At Holgates, we have holiday homes available at our award winning holiday parks that are located in Lancashire, Cumbria and the Ribble Valley. Our collection of holiday parks are in easy reach of ares of natural beauty such as The Lake District, Pendle Hill, Morecambe Bay and The Yorkshire Dales to name a few. So whether you prefer a luxury retreat of a national park or a peaceful coastal escape, you’ll be perfectly placed to enjoy everything the surrounding areas have to offer.

Best of all, our 5* holiday parks are open 12 months of the year which means you can enjoy our range of facilities at a time that suits you. Having the choice to enjoy your time at our parks or getting out and about to explore splendid surroundings, truly makes owning in a holiday home the next perfect choice of holiday for older couples.

Take a look at the holiday homes we currently have available here and be sure to get in touch if you have any questions.

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. Many of our locations are classed as National Landscapes by Natural England making a walking holiday an excellent UK holiday idea for couples, older couples, families and anyone who just wants to get away and switch off from it all for a little while.

When you visit a Holgates holiday park, you’re sure to be surrounded by a number of scenic walking routes. From unforgettable Ribble Valley walks to the beautifully mysterious walks of Pendle Hill, there’s an adventure for everyone!

Lancashire and The Lake District is also another perfect place to get the most of the great outdoors. Arnside and Silverdale are filled with beautiful sites and fantastic walking routes making it a perfect break for couples of all ages.

Visit Somewhere with Plenty of Attractions












If a staycation is sounding more and more appealing to you, one thing you ought to consider is 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. Take a scenic boat cruise on Lake Windermere or visit one of the many National Trust sites nearby. Whatever you choose to do in The Lake District, you’ll not be short of things to do when you visit this beautiful part of the country.

If you prefer a relaxing coastal retreat with plenty of things to do, a holiday to Morecambe Bay is an absolute must. It’s famous for its mesmerising sunsets so why not enjoy a romantic escape with dinner for two with a view at the gorgeous Midland Hotel. Maybe you’re a keen gardener, if so a visit to Bay View Garden Centre is right up your street.

We’ve only scratched the surface with the above suggestions of holidays for older couples in the UK. And it’s not just retired couples that can enjoy a break or invest in a holiday home with Holgates – anyone can!

So, whether you’re looking for a walking adventure, a romantic break or you’re ready to take the plunge and own your very own holiday home, get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
