Due to the pandemic, many of us are choosing to skip our holiday abroad and rediscover Britain. Whether you’re planning a fun weekend close by or a trip further away, a change of scenery still provides you with the same mental benefits as if you were flying to another country. So, whether you choose to stay in a hotel, tent or caravan this year, we’ve got some tips for how to make the most out of your staycation, whatever the weather.

Reconnect with the outdoors

We’ve all been stuck inside a lot recently, which has taken its toll on our mental and physical health. Studies have shown that spending time in nature is an antidote for stress. It also has many other benefits: it can lower blood pressure and stress hormone levels, reduce anxiety, improve mood and enhance immune system function. Your staycation is the perfect time to reconnect with the outdoors, whether that be going for a swim in a lake, going for a walk or even sitting outside with a coffee.

Land Rover recently launched a campaign in an effort to get the British public to reconnect with nature, with hundreds of places across the country to inspire us.

Roast s’mores around the fire

S’mores are an all-American classic that have been passed down through the years and enjoyed around many-a-campfire. These tasty treats are made by roasting marshmallows over a fire and sandwiching them between two biscuits with a generous amount of melted chocolate. Stick your marshmallow on the end of a long skewer and slowly rotate your s’more above the fire until you have a crisp, caramelised golden crisp shell and warm, gooey centre. The best way to roast s’mores is around a campfire, however, you can also roast them on a BBQ.

Keep the family entertained

Playing games together is a great way to bring the whole family together. Why not give your brains a break from video games and pack your favourite board games and a deck of cards for hours of entertainment? If the Great British weather takes a turn for the worst, playing games together can save the day and ensure you all make the most of your summer staycation.
