Going on an adult only holiday

Adults only holidays can be great for people who do not have children or for people who have children but have been able to get away for a few days on their own. Parents should not feel bad about taking a little break away as long as the children are happy to be staying with family or friends.

If you see an adults only holiday advertised, you may think that it is going to be full of young adults that are looking to go on holiday drinking and partying all night, but this is not necessarily the case. Many over 18 resorts stipulate this so there are no young children. They may not be aimed at people who are just over 18. If you are worried about booking this type of holiday, do some research on the web about the resort itself and the local area. You should be able to find out what the nightlife is like and the average age group of people that go.

If you are looking for a clubbing / drink holiday then you may prefer to choose a place that is 18-30 as this often does involve these sorts of activities.

Over 30’s holidays tend to be more about relaxing, eating out at beautiful restaurants and taverns but that does not mean that you cannot go and hit the town if you want to.

Short weekend trips

So many of us have already missed out on holidays we had booked for this year, it is important to try and get away once it is possible, even if it is only for a few days. We all need to get away from our day to day life and spend a bit of time relaxing and doing something that we really enjoy. Weekend breaks are perfect as they can often be fitted in around work or school if you have children that you are taking with you. Camping for the weekend can be very cheap and a great mini break. You can pick the kids up from school on a Friday and be setting up camp later on that evening

If you fancy a bit of luxury then you may decide to opt for a mini spa break away or a swanky hotel in one of the big cites. You can then decide if you want to do some shopping, hit the bars or find a nice restaurant to have an evening meal. Most cities have a variety of activities and places you can visit that will certainly fill up a weekend. If you want something a little more laid back then you could opt for a countryside retreat.

Planning a family holiday to Devon

A holiday in the UK is going to be the choice of many people this year so when we can all go on holiday again Devon is certainly a destination that should be on your list to visit. For some Devon is simply a county that is passed through on route to Cornwall, but it has many wonderful places to see from the rugged coastline of north Devon to the beautiful beaches on the south coast.

To get the best out of your holiday to Devon it is a good idea to have a two centre stay so that you get to experience the best it can offer. The historic towns of Lynton and Lynmouth is a splendid place to start especially if you like walking. The West Lyn and East Lyn rivers converge here and a beautiful walk along these rivers is a must for every visitor as is a ride on the cliff railway which links the two towns.

On the south coast of Devon, you will find the English Riviera so called because of its mild climate and therefore its abundance of tropical plants. The beautiful sandy beaches make this a popular tourist destination along with its delicious cream teas.

Is it possible to have a relaxing city break?

Choosing a city break for your holiday may not at first conjure up visions of a chilled out stay in luxurious surroundings but it is possible to achieve the relaxing break you desire whilst also reaping the benefits that staying in a city affords.

Most modern European cities have a wealth of indulgent spa hotels for you to sample with many offering swimming pools alongside the usual spa facilities that we expect such as saunas and steam rooms. Beauty and relaxation treatments can be booked in advance at a time that is convenient to you and couples’ treatments mean that you and your partner can share the experience.

The dining options at these luxurious hotels are second to none and range from a la carte dining experiences to less formal dining choices.

The accommodation that is available in high class city hotels is both comfortable and stylish giving you the option of relaxing in your room after a sightseeing excursion taking advantage of room service if required.

The beauty of a city break in a spa hotel is that should you wish to explore the city or watch a show this option is available to you giving you the best of both worlds.

Disney World Florida – perfect location for a holiday

Although a holiday may not be top of your priority list at the moment with the recent outbreaks of the virus going around the world, it doesn’t mean you cannot plan for the future.

Disney World in Florida is the perfect location for a family holiday. It is a must for those Disney loving kids and big kids but due to the cost of it, it may be something that you can only do once. As it is in Florida, you not only have to consider the cost of the park and accommodation but also the flights that can cost thousands of pounds. The flight times for the UK to America are also very long, so you may need to plan in advance what you are going to do to keep little ones entertained.

When you arrive at Disney World you will not be disappointed, there is so much to see and do (it really seems a magical place) that you really need at least a few days there. Your children will be mesmerised with the beautiful princess castle, favourite real-life characters and thrilling rides that Disney World has to offer.

Be sure to look out for vouchers and special discounted trips as you really can save a fortune. If you want something a little closer to home then you could opt for Disneyland Paris, which is more scaled down Disney theme park.
