We’re spent a lot of time at home over the last few months and in the process, we may have formed an unhealthy relationship with our TV’s - well what else was there to do on those cold winter nights? Luckily, just as we were missing the rolling hills of the dales and the splendour of Yorkshire’s stately homes, they were all there to be enjoyed on Netflix shows and blockbuster films.
Travel plans may have changed drastically in recent months, but this has given travelers the opportunity to explore closer to home, discovering or indeed rediscovering - hidden gems a shorter distance away.
Family holidays offer precious opportunities to bond and experience new thrills together and after a year of separation, there is no better time to enjoy a holiday with all the family. While entertaining three generations of a family, it’s important to have plenty of options for every age, because not everyone wants to do the same thing.
Collect moments, not things. Bucket List holidays are set to be one of the top trends for post-lockdown escapes. Yorkshire has plenty to offer travellers who want to go big on their trips of a lifetime. Surely an experiential holiday gives you more memories than another week of lazing on the beach.
Holidays should be about switching off from everyday life and for many of us, this means a week or two of total relaxation. No emails to reply to, no school rota and definitely no household chores. Wellness and wellbeing breaks are getting more and more popular and with so many luxury spas and retreats in Yorkshire it’s easy to see why it’s becoming a top destination for a well-earned break and a big dose of “me time”.
We’ve all learnt to put the breaks on recently. Experiencing life at a slower pace has been a welcoming change to many. So, when it comes to holidays why not keep in the slow lane and swap planes for trains, 4 wheels to 2 and weekends for fortnights. Get rid of your travel itinerary and opt instead to fully absorb yourself in the destination.
