Thinking of planning a holiday this spring? Understandably, everyone feels the need for some kind of vacation with the continued stress of the pandemic.

While there are reasons to be optimistic with the rollout of the vaccine gathering steam, it is reported that we may be in lockdown, which is predicted to last until the end of March and there will still be restrictions in place for some time after this.

Spring Staycations

Therefore, people should be thinking about staycations if they want a break this spring and this could be the perfect way to unwind after such a stressful period.

There are many fantastic places to visit all over the UK with something for everyone, so it should not be too challenging to find somewhere to enjoy a relaxing staycation. Additionally, the weather should be much improved by spring, so you should be able to spend much more time outside and be surrounded by nature which will help give you a much-needed boost!

Spa Breaks

For those that like to be pampered and enjoy the finer things in life, a spa weekend in one of the UK’s amazing luxury spa hotels could help you to rejuvenate and clear your head.

Places like the Rudding Park Hotel in Yorkshire could be perfect as somewhere to enjoy a wide range of treatments, explore the grounds of the Georgian Hall and experience the renovated rooftop spa. Depending on restrictions, you could top this off by going for lunch at Betty’s Tea Rooms in nearby Harrogate to nicely round off a lovely weekend of being pampered.

Nature Breaks

If you are feeling the need to be surrounded by nature having spent so much time inside (you are certainly not alone!) then you are spoilt for choice for places where you can enjoy forests, lakes and mountains. The Lake District, Cornwall, Scotland and Norfolk are just a few places of outstanding natural beauty and could be perfect for an Easter vacation with your family.

You could spend your time exploring the great outdoors with your children and enjoying fresh air and then having a cosy countryside cottage to retreat to after a long day – you could even plan to get an Easter egg delivery to your staycation to surprise them and celebrate the holidays.

It seems that international travel will still be some way off, which is why people should look to a spring staycation this year as a way to rejuvenate and recharge their batteries. Hopefully, this post will give you a few ideas for how you can enjoy a spring vacation which could do wonders for your mental health and wellbeing after such a difficult winter period.
