5 Reasons to take a Staycation this year… Posted on August 18, 2017October 4, 2017 by Meadow Lakes From visiting some of the world’s top attractions to relaxing in your own private luxury lodge with a hot tub, here are 5 reasons why you should scrap going abroad this year and set your sights on Cornwall! 1. Save your money! Holidays abroad can be expensive and time consuming. The beauty of staying somewhere local and removing flights from the budget, means you save yourself a nice chunk of change. Plus with 25% off Traditional Lodges at Meadow Lakes Holiday Park until Sept 2nd – you can’t go wrong! 2. Save the hassle Between getting the time off of work, booking flights, worrying over what to pack, dealing with the chaos of the airport and spending hours in transit, the stress of travel sometimes defeats the purpose of a holiday. On a staycation, stress levels are practically nonexistent, leaving you no choice but to just relax. Wander around the Cornish Countryside, leave your problems back at home and allow yourself to enjoy your time away! 3. Discover your country Cornwall is brimming with incredible attractions waiting for you to enjoy, such as the Eden Project (only 20 mins from Meadow Lakes) and the world famous Lost Gardens of Heligan. There’s restaurants to try, destinations to see, beaches to explore, boutique shops to pop into, coastal trails to conquer… Instead of leaving them unexplored, a staycation allows you to invest in your own country and discover things you never knew were right on your doorstep. 4. Quality time together Sometimes it’s not until it’s too late that you realise you wish you’d spent more time together as a family. So get yourself and the kids off their phones, watch a film in bed together, nap, jump in the pool, take a walk, explore the woodlands and lakes at Meadow Lakes, read in the hot tub… A staycation is an excuse to recharge your batteries without feeling bad about it. It’s also a great time to explore that hobby you never seem to have time for— knitting, playing guitar, drawing, or just eating more! Sometimes, all we need is a place to escape to to get into holiday mode. 5. You can go right now! Sometimes when you need a holiday, you need it NOW! The beauty of a staycation is that when you decide you need a break, you can actually take it hours later if you really want to. So what are you waiting for? Give us a call, throw a change of clothes into a bag and go!
