Staycations – The Best Way to Holiday?
Over the past few years, staycations have become a preferred choice of holidays for Brits looking to get away for a few days without the hassle of a busy airport. Here at Salter, we love a summer staycation so we’ve collected our favourite ideas on how to fully enjoy a Great British staycation holiday.
Luxury Staycations with Friends
What better way to enjoy the sun than with a group of your best pals in a beautiful cottage in the Cotswolds. You and your friends can take in the views in a small, picturesque village or the rolling green hills in the countryside. Why not take a tour of ancient castles, gardens, and manor houses? There’s even opportunities for surfing at the Severn bore, for those that enjoy a faster pace of life.
Whatever you and your friends get up to on your Cotswolds staycation, the most important thing is spending time together, and what better way to do that than over a delicious dinner. The Salter 2-in-1 Raclette Grill and Fondue Set is perfect for getting friends together after a long day of exploring. With eight pans for cooking, everyone can get their fill of cheesy goodness. It’s also fantastic for a fun dessert – simply melt your favourite chocolate in the fondue bowl and dip delicious fruits that you can pick up through the villages on your travels.
Caravan Staycations with Family
Whether you’re looking to let the kids run around the highlands of Scotland or splash about in the seas of the south coast, Britain has plenty of caravan and camping parks for the family to enjoy. Most are even dog-friendly for those not wanting their furry companions to miss out on the fun! Caravan staycations are a fantastic family bonding experience and wherever you choose to go in the UK, you can be sure there will be a whole host of activities for you all to do together. Like hiring boats or kayaks on a Lake District staycation or exploring exciting underground caves in the Peak District.
However you choose to spend your fun-filled days together, all those activities are sure to make the little ones hungry. Caravans are notoriously short on space which makes Salter’s Mini Toaster Oven perfect for making your family meals while being nice and compact. You can make delicious pizzas, pastries and even bake cookies, perfect for fuelling your busy days.
Romantic Staycations for Couples
Staycations can be one of the best ways to spend time with your special someone. Wherever you choose to go, a British staycation offers many ways to relax and unwind together. How about an exciting city break to Edinburgh? A sunset stroll along the beach in South Wales? A gorgeous forest cabin with a hot tub?
Whatever romantic activity takes your fancy, it’s important to spend quality time with your loved ones and sharing a dinner together can be a wonderful way to do that. Salter’s set of three Bamboo Serving Boards are the perfect way to share food with your partner. Whether your holiday gets you craving trendy charcuterie or tasty side dishes, these boards are perfect for slipping into your suitcase to add a stylish look to al fresco dinners.
