Winter Staycations

Posted on January 10th, 2019

Summer may be the most popular time to take a holiday in the UK or Ireland but a Winter staycation can be just as enjoyable.

The weather may be cold but this doesn’t have to get in the way of enjoying the great outdoors; if you’re taking a holiday by the coast, you can still enjoy long walks on the sand in the fresh air. You may even be lucky enough to get a bit of Winter sun – get yourself wrapped up and take a picnic and a nice flask of tea, coffee or hot chocolate to the beach! Kids love the seaside no matter what time of year it is, so get the family playing some beach games together; just pick up a bat and ball set, a frisbee or a football and enjoy running about having some quality time together!


Many of the cottages listed on the Remarkable Holidays website are ideal for the colder seasons as they have a log fire, a hot tub or both! So you can feel nice and toasty while you relax after a day of exploring. There are also may dog friendly cottages available to choose from so you can bring your four legged friend along for a nice walking holiday and evenings curled up by the fire, after all they are family too!

As fantastic as it is to be outside, there are countless attractions across the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland that may get overlooked during the warmer months when everyone is wanting to enjoy the sunshine. Museums are plentiful and several have free entry or discounts for family tickets. Other ideas include: galleries, indoor water parks, aquariums, sports arena tours, distillery or brewery tours and trips to castles or other historic buildings and estates.

So visit and search for your perfect winter escape today!
