MapIt has come to the huge relief of many of us to learn that many restrictions across the UK have been relaxed, and we can now enjoy a fairly normal summer with our families. We donít need to detail how tough the last year has been for those of us who have balanced home working with homeschooling and all the other stresses that came with that. Today, we will hit a more positive note on how you can enjoy a family holiday closer to home this summer!

UK Travel Opportunities

We have so many wonderful places to visit here in the UK. Taking the kids on a plane abroad can be both stressful and expensive, and one of the best tips we can give for a family break is to try somewhere in the UK. While we all book holidays searching for sun, places like the English South Coast offer beaches just as good as those youíd find in Spain or the South of France. Be sure to check out some of the guides on the best places to visit this year.

Activities as a Family

The last year might have caused some stresses and strains as a family. Everyone was in the same boat, and we all had different ways of dealing with the difficulties that came with the lockdown. Try to plan some other things you can do as a family to enjoy yourselves together. This might include booking a day out with bikes or another activity. Doing activities together can improve the bond you all share as a family in the long term.

Booking the Right Place

One of the best things you can do to enjoy a family holiday is to book a resort where everything you need is on-site in one place. This means you donít have to spend too much of your holiday travelling from your accommodation to the places you want to visit, and it also gives you the chance to enjoy some time to yourself, while the kids can have fun elsewhere in the resort. The Belfry Hotel in Sutton Coldfield is a perfect example of where you can enjoy this type of trip with everything that both adults and kids could want to enjoy a family holiday together.

Time for Yourself

While it is important to spend time together as a family, we also want to reiterate the importance of recharging your own batteries when you go on holiday. A lot has been written about the effects of going on holiday and coming home even more exhausted than before you even left. If you can share the care of your kids with your partner or another family member, make sure you get the odd bit of time to yourself over the course of your trip. It will go a long way to helping you recharge and make the very most of your trip.

We hope this article has gone some way to show you the value of enjoying a trip away with your family this summer.
