The Rise of Staycations….

Not wanting to travel abroad? Then a UK staycation is for you!

But what exactly is a staycation?  A staycation is a home from home experience without having to travel and many of these are reachable by car or even train. We see visitors from all over come to enjoy what the Cotswolds has to offer! Our most popular staycations in the Cotswold Water Park include fishing holidays, luxury spa breaks, hot tub properties and many more.  If you want to find out more, get in touch.

Quarantine rules – when going abroad, do you really want to spend the next two weeks after a holiday self-isolating?

Millions of people have had to cancel their holiday plans because of coronavirus which meant tourism has taken a massive hit as people are now deciding to stay in the UK.

A holiday is a perfect time to forget about your day-to-day worries and enjoy quality time with your family or friends. But with the current restrictions on travel abroad, many of us may have to ditch our foreign summer getaway and instead will enjoy a break much closer to home.

It is important to feel safe while away. If you’re feeling nervous about going out then what is better than to be sat in the safety of your own decking area with stunning lakeside views that our properties have to offer.

Tailor your holiday how you want it…

The beauty of staycations means that it is entirely tailored to you! It can be as long or as short as you wish with no hassle if you can only get a short time off work, making it convenient for you.

Never leave a family member behind. We all know how important and loved our pets our so why shouldn’t they enjoy the fun too? Find out what pet friendly holidays we have to offer in the Cotswolds to enjoy time away together.
