WIth the cold, dark mornings taking hold, many of us are waking up dreaming about warmer, sunnier days. As such, it is no surprise that January is one of the most popular months of the year for booking a holiday. We all want a holiday when we are faced with chilly days! With this in mind, we thought that today we would share with you a little family holiday inspiration, three ideas that you might like to try this year.
Have a staycation
You need not go far to have a fun-filled family holiday this year. From the historic cities of the UK to the stunning coastline and beaches, there is plenty for you to explore close to home.
The beauty of this type of holiday is that you don’t need to worry about passports, flights, vaccinations and luggage allowances. You can travel on your own timetable, load up the car with everything you need and go for it.
You could camp, stay in a mobile home, book yourself a cottage or check into a hotel. Think about the kind of amenities that would suit your family best and then check out the accommodation available in your chosen area. There are so many brilliant days out to be had in the UK, you could base your destination around visiting one of them.
Go and meet that famous mouse
Could this be the year that you take the kids to Disney World? Could this be the year that they get to meet Mickey Mouse? It’s certainly a holiday that you’ll never forget.
Disney World is jam-packed with family entertainment and activities. There are the rides, the shows, the attractions, the food, the lands, the water parks, the characters, the activities and that fabulous Disney theming throughout.
Orlando boasts year round sunshine, though do remember that it has a tropical climate so you can expect plenty of rain showers during the summer months. There are daily flights from most UK airports and you can opt to stay at a Walt Disney World resort or one of the many hotels or villas nearby.
Take a cruise
Can’t settle on one destination? You don’t have to! A great solution for travelling around with your family is a cruise holiday. These are usually packed with entertainment and activities for families and you will get to take in several different ports without the hassle of having to move accommodation.
Cruise ships often have at least one swimming pool, cinemas, sports, kids clubs and cafes and restaurants aplenty. There should be something for you all to do or see at any time of the day, for those days when you are out at sea. When you are in port, you can head around the town and explore the new sights, and then head back to your ship for a rest when it all gets too much for the children.
You can cruise all over the world, so take a look at Bolsover Cruise Club and check out some of the trips available.
